Video: For 62-year-old BMW With A Single Front Door, They Offered 1.5 Million Rubles
The 1959 BMW Isett300 is up for sale at the Bring Trailer auction. For a tiny car with a single front door and relatively low mileage, they are already offering 20 thousand dollars (about 1.5 million rubles), but there are still 5 days before the end of the auction.
The compact BMW is equipped with a 298 cc engine paired with a four-speed gearbox. The engine and transmission are said to have undergone a major overhaul of approximately 100 kilometers back. The Izetta odometer now reads 16 thousand miles (25.7 thousand kilometers), but there is no confirmation of the reality of this run.
- In addition to repairing the engine, the current owner has replaced the seat upholstery and the carpeted interior. However, Izetta's body also requires attention: there is a dent in the area of the engine compartment cover, and chips and scratches in the body as a whole. In addition, traces of rust are visible in the area of the welded seams on the bottom.
- The BMW Isett300's equipment list includes 10-inch stamped wheels with hydraulic drum brakes, chrome bumpers and a rear luggage rack, and a fabric sunroof.
- Earlier it became known that the iconic model can be revived by Micro Mobility - the design of their ultra-compact Microlino electric car is made with clear references to the exterior of the BMW Isetta. Serial assembly of Microlino can start already this year.
