This unique set consists of 3 microcars (also known as bubble-cars) displayed inside acrylic glass case and sits on a plinth (platform).
After World War II, Europeans were seeking low-cost transport cars and so an Italian firm ISO launched their first microcar called Isetta in 1955.
Heinkel, the aircraft manufacturer from Germany manufactured this microcar between 1956-1958 before it moved production to the UK. Great Britain, badly wanted a microcar as it was a period when cost of petrol was dearer in the late 50s.
This microcar was produced by the German aircraft manufacturer Messerschmitt between 1955-1964 and had a 191cc, 2-stoke, single cylinder engine that was positioned at the rear wheel. It had an aeroplane type steering wheel and tandem seating.
