1958 BMW ISETTA 300 description
Offered for an appreciating new owneris this ULTRA RARE CLASSIC 1958 BMW ISETTA 300 MICROCAR! RELISTED WITH LOWER RESERVE!
Finished in fire engine red with plaid cloth interior, this SIXTY YEAR OLD two-seater unique automobile shows 18,566 on its odometer but the actual mileage cannot be confirmed. It features a nice running 300cc four stroke engine with about 23 horsepower matched to the factory 4 speed manual transmission. It sports a sliding canvas sunroof, front door with pivoting steering column, whitewall tires and picnic basket with cutlery setting mounted at the rear. It has received much recent servicing including a new fuel tank, rebuiltcarburetor, new fuel lines, new accelerator cable, tuneup, brake master cylinder rebuild, new wheel cylinders and system bleed. This eye-catching little classic is being sold with clean and clear California title and Isetta repair manual!
THE BODY AND TRIM
The exterior of this 1958 Isetta is good to very good 99.9% rust-free condition with a nice overall shine to the paint finish.It is missing one wiper arm and shows expected light cosmetic blemishes including nicks, scuffs and light imperfections. I consider this Isetta a nice "driver-quality" example that would present very well at local shows.
As I hope is articulated in the photos, the interior of this microcar is in excellent condition overall with working odometer, cool fabric sunroof, nice plaid upholstery and other interior trim bits.
THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
With a top speed of just under 50 miles per hour, this classic BMW starts, runs drives, shifts, stops and steers fairly well and is quite an experience to drive and defintely NOT for the shy driver as it garners attention EVERYWHERE you drive or park.
