    Trailer probably weighs as much as the car empty. Needs a unit of lumber in the trailer for a good road test. All 12 horsepower on the Isetta should make for an interesting road trip with any kind of trailer, car only weighed 800 lbs.

    My Dad had an Isetta when I was very young. I vaguely remember the car. He got pranked a few times . He said he would park it in the street and the next morning it would be way up on someones lawn. College kids would pick it up and set it down somewhere else!

    I think that little car was a star in a music video.

    Messerschmitt in the 1950's also made a micro car to compete with the BMW Isetta. It was the Messerschmitt KR200.

    Interesting because an F350 crew cab long bed dually Diesel dwarfs a C body these days.

    King Midget made in Athens Ohio from 1946 to 1969. There was three succeeding versions. Mine is a 1961.
