Home News Beware of Dodgy Dealers

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
