Description

1963 BMW Isetta

Current V5 present showing just 2 former keepers.  Original Isetta handbook and a handful of invoices in the pack 

Cracking looking Isetta finished in lovely order throughout entered by a very fastidious collector who 'fancies a change' 

The vendor has kindly provided the following description:

This is a truly iconic very sweet little bubble car, direct from a period when your wife or girlfriend were fed up getting wet on two wheels and it was time for a bit of civilization.  The fact you could drive the early examples on a motorcycle licenses was also a contributing factor.

The early cars appeared in and around 1953 and this being one of the last benefits from the larger 13bhp 300cc four stroke engine with improved performance (yes really) Dating from 1963 this Isetta 300 is one of those Brighton-built cars which spent some time abroad and was registered back in the UK in 1981 having just one owner from then until 2013.

Over the past two years this stunning little 300 has been beautifully restored with anything that needed being replaced.  Freshly painted coachwork, shot blasted chassis, new interior, fuel tank, brakes etc.  V5 registration, various invoices, owners manual.  These little cars are now highly collectable as values continue to rise, plus you don't need a massive space to keep one and the fun factor is immense.

Please note that descriptions are produced from information provided by the vendors. We highly recommend that you view in person any potential purchase and take time to inspect paperwork.
