    Iso Carro - The coolest thing you'll see today

    This is a 1950s Iso Carro 125. It was imported from Italy at some point in its life. There are no numbers but it is believed only a few made it into the US and only one other is known to still exist in the US. It is powered by a 125cc two stroke, has 4 forward gears and reverse. It can be registered, insured and driven on the street.

    I am unsure when it last ran but plan on trying to get it running this week. From there we will decide what we will do with it. The wife and I both would like to keep it, restore it and use it to advertise BUT we could also use the money from a good flip like this.

    Now that's cool in a funky way. Just don't take a turn too fast or you'll roll it like a Reliant Robin. I think those types of vehicles are popular in India and other parts of Asia because they can get into tight places. Since it's a three wheeler, it is no doubt classified as a motorcycle, and in post war Europe cars were taxed far more than motorcycles.

    Are those 10" wheels?

    I like it and not much left to finish it too! Up/grade the engine to a 3 cylinder Kawasaki 1,000 cc and save the old one. Boy would it haul a$$ then!

    There is a lot of information on the Net about them. They made all kinds of neat stuff even little motor scooters with side cars. Be careful taking that engine apart cause parts may be big time money and rare if you break something. Simple engine to work on and lots of people looking for parts to!

    Where are you finding lots of info on them? I have seen the same info on several sites about the history of the company but not much on the actual vehicles

    I just put the name you posted on a internet search and it just came up. Your pictures on this site also came up too so people looking for parts may end up contacting you to buy it. Don't post what you paid for it or others will know that also! There was information from the UK and other foreign countries including stuff for sale priced in Euros and people wanting to buy and some parts for sale like broke down(apart) engines ect.

    Look here; https://www.google.com/search?source....0.9LpHEJysIZs
