This stunning vehicle has been driven less than 50 miles since its 2 1/2 year restoration by Peter Jackson from Pete's Custom Coachbuilding.

Over $40,000 was spent on this loving restoration which included the use of the finest materials available by one of the most respected shops in the country. During the extensive restoration process, every nut, bolt and part on car was taken off and either cleaned, painted, chromed, fixed or replaced.

This Isetta 300 features the 298cc cc, single cylinder, 4-stroke engine matched to a 4 speed manual transmission. The entire drivetrain was removed and rebuilt by a vintage BMW motorcycle expert to the highest standards and now looks and performs like it did over half a century ago when it left the factory.

All metal work was done properly on car, no bondo filled repairs on the car at all. All parts that required replacement were from Werner Schwark at www.isettasrus.com

The soft top was crafted from the same supplier that provides tops to Mercedes Benz and Audi.

The meticulously crafted interior appointments are made from the finest leather. The seats and trim are accentuated with beautiful cream piping. 8 complete additional hides are available in the event the new owner wishes to refinish the interior up to 3-4 more times. Custom floor mat was crafted to match the other interior trim.

The fresh paint is a modern PPG coded color and an extra can is included with the sale.

A few upgrades were completed during the restoration process including the removal of front and rear bumpers (front bars were re-installed), removal of front fresh air grills and removal of wiper. All of the modifications could be reversed by the buyer if they desired authenticity over aesthetics after the sale.
