Runs & Drives Well - Very Complete
This 57' Isetta 300 up sale comes from a long previous ownership history in Washington State. It was last registered in WA in 1974. Currently runs and drives and shifts through all the gears. See video and more photos below. Please let me know any questions or offers before bidding. Thanks. -dave 425-736-3888
The engine runs strong. we have recently adjusted and cleaned the carburetor. compression seems to be very strong. The odometer is faded but it does read 14. 39. The transmission shifts smoothly and the clutch works fine. The brakes will need to be rebuilt. the ebrake is currently working fine. The key and starter work fine but the rest of the electrical will need to be sorted. The engine does not leak at all and all fluids have been recently changed.
The interior is mostly original except for the carpet and side panels. original interior kits can be purchased through multiple websites. The seat looks to be original. All the glass is in great shape with no cracks or chips.
The body on this Isetta won't win any car shows and is in need of a paint job. Upon closer inspection of the shell you will find dings. rock chips. old paint. small dents. corrosion. rust and some previous repair work on some of the lower rocker areas. The floor does have some rust and has been patched. a new floor would be needed in order to be in the concourse class :)
This Isetta is titled as a 58'. but the VIN shows up in online databases a 57'. Seems like the often titled these upon the sale of them. not the date they were made.
Overall this is a great candidate for a full restoration or as an original driver with some work being done.

If you have less than a 10 Feedback score please message me before bidding.
Please only bid if you have the finances to purchase the Isetta.
I will contact the winning bidder via email within 4 hours of auction completion. I would like a $500 deposit via paypal within 24 hours. Balance is due (bank check or bank wire transfer only) within 5 calendar days of the auction end. I can send you a copy of the Washington Title (Clear) and bill of sale. The Isetta will be securely garaged until pickup.
The Isetta is sold as is / no warranty. Please contact me if you would like to inspect the Isetta. I can make arrangements.
The transport cost is the responsibility of the winning bidder. although I'll be happy to help with logistics for any domestic or international shipping. I can hold the car for as long as you need to get transportation figured out. Because of the size of the car (rear tires) a normal transporter will not work for pickup. it will need to be a covered trailer flatbed. or open flatbed. I would also advise not having tow truck drivers driving it because of the backwards shifting pattern. I do have a few accounts to help getting a shipping estimate.
Thanks for bidding! Call with any questions or offers 425-736-3888
