1956 BMW Isetta 300 export cabrio

All BMW Isettas had sunroofs.
SOME BMW Isettas had convertible tops

This is an example of one of perhaps 50 bubble window style cabrio cars manufactured by BMW.

Most all of these were exported out of Germany and sold in the US or South America. The "tropical" door vent feature was not a "normal" accessory for these cars but a set of them were exported to South America with this feature and that is where this car came from.

Of all the models and styles of BMW Isetta made,
this is the most sought after by collectors.
