Castagna Isotta Fraschini 8A Transformable
Castagna Isotta Fraschini 8A Transformable
9.5/10 rating (2 votes)

Description

To the delight of many coachbuilders, the Isotta Fraschini's straight eight engine dictated the most distinctive feature of this car: a long hood and cowl.
The appeal of the Isotta Fraschini silhouette was so great that the Tipo 8A was imitated stylistically well in the 1930's, even to cars equipped with much shorter V8 engines.
This car (# 1587) was used in the movie "Sunset BLVD." and owned by Mr. Tom Monahan, owner of Domino's Pizza in the 1980's.

This car was for sale at www.autocollections.com.

TESTIMONIALS

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
