This beautifully restored matching numbers BMW Isetta was first registered on the 11th February 1960 and supplied by Smiths Garage in Bournville to a Mr D Rickman in Solihull. It was built by Isetta of Great Britain under license from BMW to left hand drive specification which enjoys a more even weight distribution than right hand drive examples. The three-wheeler has a recorded mileage of just over 15,000 and from the history file it would appear credible and correct.

The first owner, Mr Rickman kept the Isetta for seven years and it then changed hands within Birmingham in 1967 and 1968 before being sold to a lady near Warwick in 1969, Mrs N Reece. The BMW was sometime later taken off the road but remained with the Reece family until 1981.

In 1981 the car was sold, staying in the Warwick area and it was then treated to some basic re-commissioning work. It was MOT tested at 13574 miles in 1986 and covered just 200 miles in 27 years. In 2008 it was sold to a lady in Cheshire who purchased the car as a gift for her husband to restore. The lady's husband was planning on entering a car into the Dakar rally but sadly whilst working on the project, he had a heart attack. As he was unable to complete the work, he donated the car to a local Army Rehab facility, and they completed the preparation and ran the car in several distance rallies. Frustrated at not being capable of completing the work, his wife purchased the Isetta as a light project but sadly, having spent almost £10,000 on the car, the car was not completed, and the owner passed away.

As a mark of respect, and gratitude having received the ‘Dakar Rally car' from the car's owner, the Army Rehab Centre offered to complete the restoration of the Isetta for his wife. They did a fine job of completing and fully re-furbishing the car and it was then able to sit pride of place in the widow's garage. The majority of work was carried out between 2013 and 2015 with parts being sourced by the Bromley Bubble Car Company. Up to 2018 the BMW Isetta was parked on display in her garage until being sold to the most recent owner in Herefordshire who we have bought the car from. It was purchased for nostalgia reasons having had an Isetta as his first car in 1961!

OSV 995 has arrived with us in immaculate condition with beautiful first-class Peppermint Gren paintwork and excellent bodywork. The Brown/Cream interior is superbly finished and the Isetta is mechanically excellent having been restored to a high standard. Invoices for thousands of pounds worth of new parts are on file and almost £10,000 was spent prior to the restoration being completed by the Army Centre. OSV 995 is a stunning example, a bubble car that will look exceptional on display, but also provide a fun driving experience.
