Car was Sold at a price of $22,000

13bhp, 298 cc overhead valve air-cooled single-cylinder engine, four-speed manual transmission, front leading arm suspension with coil springs, rigid rear axle with quarter-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 59.1"

Finished in green with a tan interior, the Isetta presented here benefits from an older frame-off restoration, beautifully executed by one of the nation's leading restoration facilities. The delightful BMW also received a complete mechanical and electrical rebuild as well as a cosmetic freshening. It runs and drives very well and was also fitted with a new Stayfast top and new carpeting.

More than merely an idiosyncratic addition to any automotive collection, the Isetta's historical significance cannot be underestimated, as it saved BMW from being bought by Mercedes in the late 1950s. To this day, it remains one of the most popular and recognizable mini-cars, of which this Isetta 300 is a particularly well-restored and show quality example.
