For Sale: 1957 BMW Isetta in Lake Hiawatha, New Jersey

Vehicle Description

Zoom Classic Cars brings you this 1957 BMW Isetta 300. In the early 1950s Italian refrigerator and motorcycle builder IsoSpa put its 236cc ISO Moto 200 engine in a tiny car they called the Isetta (little Iso). After quickly realizing that a true three-wheeler was a terrible idea, the production models featured four wheels with the rears spaced closely together to simplify the need for a rear differential. The Isetta became extremely popular due to its small size, charming appearance, excellent fuel economy, and mechanical simplicity. In 1954 a trio of Isettas dominated the podium of the economy class of the Mile Miglia cementing its motorsport legacy. The Isetta was built under license from many manufacturers, but one of the best was BMW. BMW took the Isetta and transformed it, first with a 250cc four-stroke engine from the BMW R25/3 and then with a 300cc engine released in 1956 that they called BMW Isetta 300. The Isetta Moto Coupe DeLux added sliding side windows and a canvas sunroof to improve cooling. The BMW Isetta has become one of the most delightful micro cars of the mid-twentieth century. This particular BMW has been an everyday driver up until Feb 2019. It was driven a couple of times last year. It starts, runs, and drives. Excellent restoration candidate. Comes with owners manual and several extra parts. Was registered up until last year. Have last registration. Car is in CT. REDUCED! Now $17,500 OBO.
