1958 BMW Isetta 600. It is powered by a correct 582 cc horizontally
opposed 2�-cylinder engine with 1�-barrel carburetor rated at 19.5
hp. The shifting is done through a 4� speed manual transmission and
four wheel hydraulic drum brakes brings the car to a halt when
needed. While the original single-�door Isetta 250 and later 300's
has been built under license by BMW, the Isetta 600 was a design
that the Munich�-based company developed. The Isetta 600, with its
larger engine, longer wheelbase, extended body providing seating
for four, went from coupe to sedan and was designed to be a
stepping stone towards returning for full �scale automotive
production. The ideal economy car for a small family, the 600 was
in production for just two model years 1958 and 1959, during which
time around 35,000 were produced, a bit less than BMW had hoped
for, but making them rare and sought after today. Few Isetta 600's
have come to American shores and making this prime example a real
treat to offer and review. It has been treated to a recent
restoration featuring a correct and attractive red and white finish
with a new vinyl interior. The engine is reported to run out quite
well. The 600 features BMW's first use of an independent
semi-�trailing arm suspension, used in nearly every BMW automobile
up into the 1990's, which makes it one of the most drivable and
enjoyable micro �cars ever built. A wonderful combination of unique
designs with the front of the car opening for driver and passenger,
plus room for the kids, a picnic basket or a set of golf �clubs,
this BMW is the way to go. Please call Coast Motor Company today at
