1957 BMW ISETTA 300 BUBBLE WINDOW MICROCAR
OLDER RESTORATION, STILL LOOKS SHARP!
Rare BMW Isetta 300
Ready to Drive & Surprise
VEHICLE HISTORY: My father purchased this Microcar at the Auburn Car Coral in September of 2003. He thought it was a cute little addition to our just opened Antique Car Museum. It is so small it was delivered in the back of a ½ ton pickup truck! As with all the cars in our Museum this one was driven regularly, and any required maintenance was performed to keep it “Running, Reliable, and Ready to Go”. My father passed away and this rare 1957 BMW Isetta 2-door sedan is being sold to finance additional cars for the collection.
NOTE: Although the S/N plate states 1956, the vehicle is titled as a 1957.
MARQUE HISTORY: After WWII most Germans could not afford to purchase a BMW luxury/sports car. BMW turned to Iso of Italy and acquired the manufacturing rights to the Isetta “bubble car” to keep the factory open and producing affordable cars. The BMW Isetta offered basic transportation to car-starved Germans.

We do a mechanical and cosmetic inspection to each vehicle before listing it for sale. This report is included below will provide a reasonable description of the vehicle condition. Older vehicles are subject to normal wear and tear and we have tried to indicate the overall condition of the vehicle to the best of our ability. But, we can not always find everything that is not perfect with a vehicle, so independent inspections are welcome and encouraged. We drive each vehicle approximately 20 miles, but this is no indication of its long term road-worthiness. The only guarantee with an older vehicle is that someplace, sometime, something will need repaired!
