1956 BMW Isetta "Z" mold two tone

You are bidding on a 1956 European bubble window Isetta 250 with the Rare original "Z" mold trim.This Isetta coupe has a matching number original 250cc engine. The picture shows the vin number before we restored the frame in is raw original stamping with the small BMW logo next to the first and last number.In 1956 the Isetta was delivered by the German BMW Autohaus Gloeckler the same dealer who sold Elvis Presley his BMW 507 and Isetta. I have the BMW archive certification and the old BMW dealer plaque.IsettasRus restored this car back to its original specifications with the Light Blue and Kornblumen Blue original colors.All of the original hardware with the Ribe and Knipping markings etc were cleaned and sent out to be Black oxide or silver zinc plated. The original seat material was reproduced to match the original plaid pattern.The needle point grain sun roof was reproduced in Gray with the original Gray underside not the Black that others are using.The Chrome parts as well as the side "Z"mold trim pieces were redone and polished to perfection.This model came with the very early one piece rims not the two piece like other cars received.During production and cost saving the rims were placed onto the parcel shelf and floor to be finished in Blue.Everything was replaced and repaired as it should be; preserving the original parts as well as adding tasteful details.The solid engine panel was only available on the early European version and are unique to this model.BMW installed various engine panel configurations on early bubble Isettas. Some were flat like this Isetta has and others came with a raised stamped center. IsettasRus have early 1955, 1956, and most all others years in their collection up to 1962 from European to Canadian British build and USA models.This European Isetta is a much cleaner more streamlined appearance than the USA model counter cousin.The 5 inch Euro headlights, the Amber side markers, and flush mounted tail lights is a more pleasant design.None of the USA model came with any of the European lights.Since the original European Plexiglas windows were scratched, IsettasRus created new rear and fixed side windows exactly like the originals.And finally a great color combination.We drove few test miles since the restoration and the underside still looks fresh.If you wish to have one of the Best restored early bubble window coupe in the USA don't look any further you found it!If you have any questions about this Isetta please do not hesitate to contact us at 770-924-1140
