1961 BMW Isetta - restored -The BMW Isetta - The iconic "Bubble Car" - Collector Car FOR SALE
Known as the BMW Isetta, the tiny unconventional automobile was introduced at the 1953 Turin/Italy Auto Show. In 1955 BMW bought the name and the manufacturing rights from the original Italian designer, ISO, and started to produce the Isetta in Germany. Only 7.5 feet long and 4.5 feet wide. Bubble-type windows, the entire front end of the car hinged outwards to allow entry, the steering wheel and instrument panel swings out with the door. An Emergency Exit for driver and passenger was provided by a canvas sunroof.
In 2009 this Isetta 250 was restored in Germany by a BMW Dealership and then sold to a collector in the USA. He bought the Isetta to make it part of his private Museum/Collection. Never titled the car in the US.
Finished in “Baby Blue” with White/Blue interior, bench seat, chrome mirrors, clear headlights, 10" steel wheels, manual steering. The air-cooled one-cylinder 250 cc engine generates 12 HP and is backed by a 4-speed Manual transmission. Top Speed app. 53 mph.

Still has the German title (Fahrzeugbrief). The Isetta can be sold with the German Title or if you want with Florida free and clear title.
