    I don't know that I worked on one, but I remember the photos and chapter in the repair manual.

      Yep, worked on a few back in the Sixties. If memory serves, it had a hemi-like valve cover?? Seems like they ended up being made in Mexico or Spain possibly? I will NOT say it was ugly.

        The Isabella 2 Dr looks pretty good.
        My sister has a 4dr, not sure that it is an Isabella, seen it called a Hansa saloon maybe.
        They had a strange engine design, and independent rear suspension on them.

            Interesting looking car. A bit better looking than the AMC Marlin. I wonder which is worth more?

              I have seen a few and I know where there is a barn with two or three in quiet retirement.

              They struck me as being well finished.

              Incidentally, we have this little Flying Flea in our museum collection..

              ...which appeared to have been powered by a little Lloyd engine Lloyd being another marque in Borgward's group of companies.

                There is an auto club somewhere around where I live I think. Several times a year lots of old cars drive by our place. The last time they drove by I stopped counting at 50 autos. All kinds, even a few Ford Model A's I think but not sure. But for sure there were many of these Isabella's driving by. I didn't think they were very classy looking cars but to each his own.
