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.
