Lot #89.1 - The Isetta went through a three year frame-off nut and bolt restoration which was completed in June of 2003. I have owned the Isetta for 11 years. This is the rare European 4-wheel left hand drive model. Designed originally by Rivolta's ISO in Italy and licensed, sold and improved by BMW. This Isetta has the more powerful 298cc engine which was rated at 13hp @ 5,200rpm. It has a four-speed manual transmission with reverse. The Isetta is street legal. The Isetta has a single door which opens like a refrigerator. Please note that ISO also manufactured refrigerators at the time they came up with the design. It seats two people. The steering wheel and instrument panel move with the door for easier access. It is a sliding window model which makes it a more enjoyable ride as you can get better ventilation. It is an original sunroof factory car. The Isetta has the correct European bumpers, taillights and headlights which were only seen on this model. This Isetta was painted a beautiful two tone blue and white paint job. Interior is a beautiful two tone gray using materials like the original. The Isetta is definitely a looker.
