Rare 1924 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A Landaulet Sells In Arizona — Ever Seen One Around Here?
I love old vehicles. When I was young, I used to use my tip money to buy cars. I had a 1972 Dodge Dart Swinger, 1964 1/2 Mustang with a 289, and 1965 and '67 Mustangs -- both with 289s. My favorite was a 1964 1/2 Ford Thunderbird. She was the best.
I had a bunch of other cars, but those were my favorites that I have owned. I always wanted some of the crazy-looking European cars, but I could never afford them. What cost someone a ton of money in 1924 for an Isotta Frashini vehicle is worth its weight in gold now. Someone bought one that was nearly perfect in Arizona. What cost someone a cool $27,000 back in 1924 sold for $434,500 at auction! Holy crap! That is a lot of money.
I have to admit that I have never even seen one of these vehicles in person. But it looks incredible! I would love to accidentally find one of Fraschini's handmade cars! Woot! I would not ever sell it. I would keep it and practically live in it!
Do you know anyone in Washington who has a car as cool as the Fraschini?
