Good Thing in a Small Package - The Isetta

Impeccably restored and quite possibly the cutest of all the "micro-cars", we've found you a stunning 1959 BMW Isetta 300 for sale.  If you're looking to meld the collector car hobby with fuel economy, this is certainly the car to consider.  Just imagine - 60MPG from a car built in an age when big was boss (at least here in the US). So while the V8 guys pump their brightly colored muscle machines full of high-test, you can zip on down the road making on-lookers say "What was that!?".   Here it is folks, found in Hemmings:

The Seller Says:

Just out a private collection, the 1959 BMW Isetta 300 offered here is an outstanding example of the European Bubble Car. Restored to a high standard, this lovely little Isetta sunroof coupe is finished in its very attractive red over grey / red two-tone interior. Weighing in at only 770 lbs, this fiery machine is capable of top speeds of 62.2 miles per hour. This coupled with a tubular chassis, 19 gauge steel and featuring a turning circle of 24 ft, this rugged metropolitan cruiser has proven to get in and out of places unimaginable by other manufacturers then and now.

Despite it's small size, the Isetta it is a very important car in history. Visit our post from earlier this week to learn more about this little car and what it did for Europe.  If this particular 300 ends up in your garage, let us know!
