1967-1974 Iso S4 Fidia


The 1967-1974 Iso S4 Fidia is the four-door successor to the Rivolta coupe, using the same basic chassis design on a six-inch longer wheelbase. Styling by Ghia featured a blunt nose with quad square headlamps, a fairly short tail, and flowing "coke-bottle" fender lines.

The plain but well-appointed interior featured standard air conditioning, an impressively instrumented dash, center console, and front bucket seats. Big and heavy, but quite quick with a top speed in excess of 130 mph.
