1961 BMW Isetta 300

Chassis Number: 328922
Engine Number: 328922
This Italian-designed Isetta microcar was built under licence in a number of
different countries, including Spain, Belgium, France, Brazil, Germany, and
the United Kingdom. Produced in the post-World War II years, a time when
cheap short-distance transportation was most needed, it became one of the
most successful and influential city cars ever created. Because of its egg
shape and bubble-like windows, it became known as a ‘bubble car', a name
later given to other similar vehicles.

With space for two and their luggage, the Isetta was perfect for the UK's
urban and rural roads. In 1957, Isetta of Great Britain began producing 300
models at their factory in Brighton under licence from BMW. The British cars
were right-hand drive with the door hinged from the right hand side of the
car and the steering column moved across to the right as well. Being righthand drive meant that the driver and engine were on the same side, so a
counterweight was added to the left side to compensate. Lucas electrics
replaced the German Hella and Bosch components, with a different headlamp housing being used. Girling brake components replaced the ATE brake
parts. This example is from 1961 and is a UK built Brighton car.
