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.
