Vintage Ad: 1957 BMW Isetta 300 – “The Hottest Profit Item Since Henry F. Backed The Model T”

I knew a guy in Iowa City in 1973 who found an Isetta in someone’s garage or barn. The engine was frozen, so he replaced it with a big Briggs & Stratton single cylinder industrial engine with a centrifugal clutch, so no shifting. I got a ride with him once, and it was a trip putting around town with him in it.
