Market report BMW Isetta 300 and 600 Limo

These novelty cars are extremely popular among collectors the smaller 300 series car which has as a door latch that opens the entire front of the car while pivoting the steering wheel and steering column forward to allow entrance. The 300 also have a narrow inset rear axle that often gives the appearance of a three-wheeled vehicle although it is a four wheeler. The 300 has a large (for the size of the car) sunroof. The 600 larger car with seating for four is not nearly as collectible and falls in line value wise to many small European sedans of the early sixties.

Isetta by BMW 1957-1962 300 series (note a 250 was offered in 1956)

Show quality $20,000 Excellent $13,000 Above average or older restoration $9,000 Average (very usable as is but needs work throughout to be excellent) (flaws can be easily seen from 20 feet away) $6,500 Edgy (you don’t want this in front of your house) $4,000

600 2-door sedans 1957-1960

Show Quality $5,000 Excellent $4,000 Above average 2,500 Average $1,800 Edgy $900

I believe that we will see a continued rise in the values of the small 300 Isetta, particularly for a high quality original or a car that has been properly restored. For a long-term investment, micro cars offer fun, rarity and easier storage then most other cars.
