1956 BMW Isetta cabrio at Russo & Steele 2010

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

This 1956 BMW Isetta Bubble Window cabrio just sold in Scottsdale AZ at the Russo & Steele auction for $42,000.

This was an ALL RESERVE auction (as opposed to Barrett-Jackson which is all NO Reserve) and the reserve was off at $39,500.  Bidding was at $39,500 and the reserve was not met and they rolled the car away and were on to the next car when the seller apparently changed his mind and they went back to it for another $2500.

This was restored by Greg Hahs and I think I know who the guy in the hat was that bought it. We will see if it shows up in his collection, I don’t think he had a Bubble Window cabrio.

The results from this auction were from watching the Live Feed, the official Russo & Steele Auction site does not yet have result from this auction.   This car was not touched by the damages caused by high winds that caused some tents there to collapse.

3-wheel Mystery Cushman (?)

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009
well, what is it really?

well, what is it really?

“Jane” recently bought this three wheel car in Los Angeles and has been unable to find out any information on it. It has a Cushman motor. It has a sticker on the front bumper that says Explorer Driving-Safe Road Rally. That is apparently associated with the Boy Scouts. However she was unable to find any information on the cars used for the rally.

Is this a real Cushman? Or is it some sort of Home-built vehicle?
