It would seem that the Isetta Committee are not interested in the members welfare,

The closure of the 'club spares' due to the resignation of Mike Hurn is unbelievable!  why did this wonderful committee allow this without making contingency plans for the club members (who own the spare's), more to the point what are they doing to recruit a replacement?

Over the last 6 months we have seen 3 examples of shoddy bordering on lethal restorations which have been passed off to the unsuspecting buyer as fully restored to a high level for a top price tag. When you decide to buy an Isetta do not be taken in by a gleaming paint job (all that glitters is often full of filler) Here are our tips when looking to buy:-


  1. Do not buy without seeing the vehicle
  2. Ask if there is photographic history of the  restoration, this will show you how bad the body was , if it had been rolled , what repair panels have been used and just how much filler as been used.
  3. Always Test drive the vehicle, listen to the engine if it knocks and sounds like a Bag of nails (be warned)
  4. Do not buy a fully restored car without an MOT
  5. Check out the seller, how long have they had the car, did they do the restoration . have they sold similar cars in the last 6 months
