1961 BMW Isetta 300 SOLD

1961 BMW Isetta 300. Genuine UK Right Hand Drive Car. Built by the Italian firm of Iso, the Isetta caused a sensation when it was lunched at the Turin Motor Show in November 1953.
Unlike anything seen before, not only was it small (only 7.5ft long by 4.5ft wide) and egg-shaped with bubble-type windows, but the entire front end of the car hinged outwards to allow entry and exit. The steering wheel and instrument panel also swung out with the door as this made access to the single bench seat easier.
The Isetta soon captured the attention of BMW who made a deal to design and manufacture their own version of the car under licence. BMW quickly made many changes, including a new 247cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine, borrowed from the BMW R25 motorcycle, that made 12bhp and boosted top speed to around 50mph.
In 1956 they fitted longer side windows and a larger 298cc engine to produce the BMW Isetta 300, now with a heady 13bhp and improved torque that made hill climbing a little easier. Between 1957 and 1962 BMW also produced the 300 in RHD at a factory in the former Brighton railway works.
Dating from 1961, this Isetta 300 is one of those Brighton-built cars and has had just four owners from new. The previous keeper was given an Isetta by her father on her 16th birthday as she could drive it on a motorcycle licence (lucky girl!). Although she traded it in for a Mini when she got her full licence, she always had fond memories of the Isetta and her husband eventually bought her a one as a surprise Christmas present in 1992 (lucky lady!).
Only sparingly used during her 26-year ownership and always kept garaged, it has been regularly serviced and MOT’d at local classic car specialists, Alderton Garage near Tewkesbury. In good and highly original order throughout, it is showing only 28,086 miles on the clock which is more than likely correct.
Recently treated to a new set of tyres, it sailed through its MOT in September last year with no advisories recorded and although it is now MOT exempt we will apply afresh MOT upon sale. With microcar values rising strongly of late we see this car as a sound investment.
Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.
