For Sale: 1958 BMW Isetta in Fairmont City, Illinois

$44,995

Vehicle Description

Up for sale in our Tampa showroom is this 1958 BMW Isetta – a car made famous by Steve Urkel. This fine example is a numbers-matching car with just 12,457 miles on the odometer! Defined by its small size, front-entry passenger compartment and narrow rear track, this 1958 BMW Isetta 300 will definitely turn heads wherever you take it. The styling is amplified by the bullet-shaped headlights and chrome bumperettes, and the whole looked is finished off with a matching suitcase to store on the rear luggage rack. Getting in the BMW Isetta is half the fun as you watch the front hatch swing out of the way with the steering wheel attached. The two-passenger interior is as basic as the car itself with controls for the heater and choke mounted in front of the gear selector, and the sliding side windows and retractable soft all operated manually. The BMW Isetta was produced from 1955 to 1962 with three variations, this being the Isetta 300. The 1958 BMW Isetta 300 is powered by a 298cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine rated at 13 hp, which is more than enough for a microcar weighing less than 800 pounds. This engine allowed the Isetta to return fuel economy of around 63 mpg and drive at speeds up to 53 mph. On such a basic car, there isn't much to the Isetta in terms of options, which are limited to just a manual sunroof, radial tires, hub caps, vinyl interior and a tilt steering wheel (well, kinda).
