 Vehicle Description
Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas/Ft.Worth is proud to offer this essential to any collection, BMW Isetta 300 available in our Dallas-Fort Worth Showroom. First developed by Renzo Rivoltas highly successful Iso S.p.A in Italy and license-built in several countries, the Isetta, Italian for little Iso, was primarily intended to provide economical and practical transportation for the masses. However, it also enjoys a largely unheralded racing heritage, gained in 1954 when a trio of Iso works Isettas swept the podium in the economy class at the storied Mille Miglia. While small in size, the Isettas influence was large, helping save BMW from being taken over by Mercedes Benz, its much larger rival, during the late 1950s. Finished in red, this rare BMW Isetta is an improved sliding-window, 298 cc variant from 1958 equipped with a delightful canvas sunroof and complimented by nice brightwork and period-style whitewall tires from Coker. It was acquired by the consignor in 2009 after a prior unsuccessful attempt to purchase it from the then owner, Bill Klageman of Michigan, who restored it thoroughly from 1996-2002. Under the consignors care, this Isetta has seen only limited local driving, and has never been shown, allowing its new owner the pleasure of returning it to the public eye. It has been serviced as needed, including a cleaning of the carburetor. Many copies of restoration-related correspondence, as well as parts and service orders accompany the sale of this small but mighty BMW. The perfect choice for the collector who appreciates the fine art of micro-engineering. This Isetta 300 is for sale in our Dallas-Fort Worth showroom can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.gatewayclassiccars.com for more information please call the showroom at 817-310-9400 or email us at dallas@gatewayclassiccars.com. If you would like to see this car in person, we welcome you to stop in our Dallas-Fort Worth showroom at 1250 Mustang Drive, Suite 500, DFW Airport, TX 76051.
