Did you have a blue Isetta 300?

My father used to live in Sidcup and had a blue Isetta 300 right-hand drive. Any similarities to your first car?

Mine was left-hand drive and had originally been blue. Left-hand drive balanced the engine which hung out on the right of the rear wheel. But my family had moved from Kent to Northumberland, and I bought it from a Northumbrian scrappie called 'Shire Ted'. A 1959 Isetta 300 was recently estimated at £9000 - £13,000 at auction but did not sell.
