1957 BMW Isetta

Here is your chance to own a rare 1957 BMW Isetta sliding window Cabriolet, the one body style everyone wants. This is a U-Finish Project ready for you to complete. Starting with a number matching car, the body was media blasted to bare metal and primer sealed. The floor is rust free other than needing a battery box of which a replacement is included. The rear parcel shelf is stock and uncut. The rear does not appear to ever been damaged. The front fenders are in excellent condition other than one small spot on the drivers bottom edge shown in the photos. The isetta frame was stripped down and also media blasted to bare metal, primed and painted. Everything was restored and rebuilt. The engine has a new custom billet aluminum rod and was totally rebuilt from a bare block. No shortcuts were taken and has 110 lbs compression. All new brake system. New drive couplings, tires, tubes, cables, muffler and so on. The pictures speak for themselves. I have been restoring isettas for over 25 years so this is no quick and dirty rebuild to make a fast buck. You are getting what you pay for. This is being offered toward someone who may not have the mechanical rebuilding skills yet wants to have a nice restored car they can finish.
