1958 BMW Isetta 300 Microcar 4 Speed Manual 300cc Single Cylinder
The Isetta’s easy sliding windows provide some fresh air in the cabin and a knob under the seat that adjusts the heat flow. The sunroof can be retracted and provides a more spacious, convertible-like feel when out on the road! Restoration began in 2018 by the previous Illinois family who maintained possession of this Isetta for the past 58 years!
The first BMW Isetta came to life in April 1955 and was the world’s first mass produced car to achieve a fuel consumption of 78 MPG. 1956 was the first full year of production and BMW sold 22,000 Isettas and as the microcar caught on with popularity, BMW saw the opportunity to improve upon its design. The engine was upgraded to a 298-cc four-stroke single cylinder capable of 13hp and 50 mpg at 50 mph.
