Friends Cars

John Jensen's Car.

Jim: This is a photo of my 2nd and only red Isetta. My first I bought in '58 and owned for 4 years. This one I bought in '83. It is my only collector car. I restored it in '87 and began writing a book about Isetta Restoration, which I self-published in 1992. That was 1040 copies ago. Shown beside the Isetta is my son, Julian, my real pride and joy. Someday he will be the keeper of this red Isetta. Although my Isetta is the common US export model, I have added a radio and instruments: tach, cylinder-head temperature gauge and voltmeter. It also has an emergency blinker system and special sidewall panels made of aluminum to form armrests for "grand touring". I made and installed a rear bumper brace for more stiffness at the back, also an aluminum heat shield above the muffler. Many of my silentblocks are now nylon. My Isetta runs very well most of the time, but now and then requires special attention. There is always something new to learn about this car. john jensen Thanks John for the info. Jim
