Lot #407.2 - In recent years, the BMW Isetta has garnered quite a cult following amongst both micro car collectors and classic car collectors alike. Park one next to any classic or exotic car, and they will hold their own and garner inquisitive looks, questions, and amusing conversation from all who pass by. These cars are considered by many to be known as the king or leader of the micro car industry, and certainly one of the most well-known and recognized. Examples have been featured in TV shows, music videos, TV commercials, and print media with the likes of Cary Grant and Elvis Presley in years past. This particular rust-free bubble window model is rarer than the slider window model, has 16,800 actual miles, and has undergone an extensive frame-off restoration. Finished in its original Japan Red exterior paint scheme with correct cream colored basket weave patterned seat upholstery and grey trim panels, 4-speed transmission, and wide white wall 10" tires, this car is ready to show, drive, or add to your museum.
