The Islero Gallery for Fall 1996

The pictures included here are a representative of what's out there. I will rotate pictures so that eventually many cars will have been exhibited. If you can, sent me a picture of your Islero on e-mail along with a little history so that it too may be included.

This is Islero #6096. It belongs to Lou Herrin, your faithful historian. It is in good running condition and is used for open road trips during good weather. It has the original air conditioning and tan pigskin style leather interior. No major problems have been encountered other than repair of normal wear and tear. Sold initially by Autoelite of Milano, #6096 has had several North American owners and I have enjoyed ownership for the past 8 years.

Islero #6210. This car was purchased in Italy by the previous owner and taken to the Lamborghini factory for a mechanical rebuild in their restoration/service department. It now lives with its third owner, in the southern United States.

An Islero S, #6435 was the pride and joy of WWII British fighter pilot, Sir Wm. Garthwaite. He purchased the car new and was the owner until his death in 1995. He drove it regularly and returned it to the factory for its regular service and repair on an annual basis. This Islero was originally white with a black interior. It is one of the few built with right hand drive. Sir Wm. and #6435 are well known by the factory old timers and test drivers.
