CL: 1957 BMW Isetta project for sale in Sunland CA $9000

from California Craigslist:

from the ad:
A beautiful 1957 BMW Isetta for sale. It still needs some of your loving to finish this timeless classic. I always wanted an Isetta and I bought with the intention of doing a complete ground up restoration but sometimes things happen in life and now it's time to part ways. Now it could be a part of your collection. I did all the hard work, now you can finish putting it together and feel the accomplishment in building your dream ride. The garage find was found in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California. The body was pretty much rust free beside the battery box. The body was sandblasted by PowderCraft in Sun Valley, CA. I had tons of body work done to pound out all the dents. I had it painted white over blue. The underneath body was not undercoated so you can see how solid it is and not to hide anything from the new buyer. Most of the parts were sandblasted and powder coated gloss black. I priced it low so you can finish it and still have plenty of money left over to be in the black. The Isetta is priced at a low $9,000. The price is firm and not negotiable. The Isetta is sold as is, where is with no cooling off period. You buy it, take it, it's yours for the keeping.

The Isetta comes with a bill of sale, but for additional $ 300 I will obtain the CA title (title only) at the DMV, or save money and do it yourself. The title usually takes two weeks to arrive from the DMV.
