The ’60s saw the emergence of one of the more interesting trends the automotive world has ever seen, big American V-8s in smaller European cars. There was AC, Sunbeam, De Tomaso, and one of the more interesting examples, Iso. Iso was a small company that had started out making refrigerators in the days just before WWII, and then moving into motorcycles just after the war. In the mid ’50s, it produced the Isetta bubble car, a somewhat hilarious little car that became much more famous when BMW started producing them under license. The Bavarians would end up buying out the Isetta tooling, and Iso was freed up to pursue much more ambitious automotive goals.
