Lot 136 - 1962 BMW Isetta 300
|Odometer reading||47,479 miles|
|Result||Sold - £7,392|
This Isetta was built in Brighton under license from BMW, as per the chassis plate, and is a genuine UK registered righthand drive example. The single cylinder 298cc engine produces 13bhp with a maximum top speed of 53mph for those brave enough. An interesting article in the Manchester Evening news on 24th October 1984 shows this particular Isetta being presented to Sales Director Frank Johnson who was expecting a new Mercedes-Benz as his company car. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a workshop manual, this BMW Isetta is described as complete and running, although she could do with a little time and attention over the winter months. Offered without reserve, this 'bubble car' could well prove to be a bargain given the significant interest in microcars of late.
