This 1958 Isetta Bubble Car was last used in the late 70s as a John Player Special promotional vehicle for the well-known Formula 1 team sponsors, whose drivers included Jim Clark and Emerson Fittipaldi.
Untouched since it was garaged in England in the early 80s, this vehicle benefits from a complete engine verification, a new battery, replacement rubbers and a complete service. Everything on the vehicle works as it should, and all the hardware (instruments, dials, handles, bright work, and body panels are completely original, corrosion free and unrestored. The sunroof is original and in excellent working order.
The bodywork is excellent throughout, and the paintwork, which dates from the 70s has been untouched, and would benefit from a gentle renovation and re-lacquering.
This extremely unusual example attracts crowds wherever it goes, in inverse proportion to its size!
Four-speed gearbox with reverse.
IDEAL FOR THE MAN / WOMAN ABOUT TOWN IN LONDON.
Perfect daily drive.
The vehicle is supplied with a spare replacement engine and a box full of spares.
