This is chassis 1256, once owned by Peter Hampton and believed to be a 1927 London Motor Show exhibit. Angelo Tito Anselmi's book on Isotta-Fraschini gives the first owner as J.G. Hart of London.

I hope this helps,

Clive.

Sala bodied 1929 Isotta Fraschini 8A for the Maharajah of Kotwara, who lived in the UK, and who had the habit of sending pics of himself and his cars to friends.

Yes of course,he liked the Hisso. I doubt he was the Isotta's owner, but maybe somebody know the history of this car =)

Not every Indian ruler had Maharaja title. Sajid Hussain, the Raja of Kotwara studied at University of Edinburgh. He's son is certain that the car was bought new, or almost new in 1929, when his father studied in the UK. It was originally green and when the raja finished at the university he went back with his car to India. The Isotta remained in India until 1972. Now in white with black fenders, it was posted first by João.
