1958 BMW Isetta 600

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1958 BMW Isetta 600 is finished in a two-tone blue and white and equipped with US market lighting and bumpers. The previous owner reportedly restored the car in 2014, including a repaint and reupholstering of the interior, as well as refurbishment of the engine, transmission, and brakes. The seller purchased the car in 2014 and has taken it to local shows and events during his ownership. This two-door Isetta is offered with records covering the seller’s ownership, and a clean California title in the seller’s name. The Isetta 600 features a 66.9″ wheelbase, which is more than a foot longer than the standard Isetta 300. The car was repainted by the previous owner in two-tone white and blue with matching blue wheels. The front door handle caused some cracking in the paint, and the seller had the area around the handle and front emblem touched up. This example is equipped with standard US-market lighting and tubular bumper overriders. The 600 has two doors, one at the front and one at the right rear for rear seat passengers. The side windows open by sliding fore and aft rather than rolling up and down. The interior is upholstered in white vinyl with contrasting blue cloth on the seat faces. The exposed steering column passes through the cabin, and the lower casting forms the pedal mount. The 5-digit odometer shows 21k miles. The seller has trailered the car to shows for most of his ownership, and the true mileage is unknown. Power comes from a 26 horsepower 582cc boxer-twin mated to a 4-speed manual transaxle. The previous owner reportedly refurbished the engine, transmission, and brakes, though no records are available prior to 2014. The seller reports that reverse engagement is slightly stiff, though the selector rod assembly was inspected and found to be without issue by two different repair shops. The most recent service was performed in 2017 and included a fuel flush and new battery.
