ISO FIDIA

Unique Cars - - ONES THAT GOT AWAY -

The photo is a bit grainy but read­ers should still get the idea that the Iso S4 Fidia is BIG. in fact it was the beefi­est Ital­ian car of its era and held the ti­tle un­til brained by Maserati’s 1860kg V8 Qu­at­tro­porte. Iso’s GT cars were pretty de­cent de­vices but the Fidia was pure folly and just 192 were made from 1967 un­til 1975 when the com­pany went belly-up. At least a cou­ple from the 16 built in right-hand drive came to Aus­tralia and al­most cer­tainly their orig­i­nal own­ers lost money. How­ever de­mand has since been re­vived and that $19,500 looks like smart buy­ing.
