Walter Heale has discovered a TS Deluxe Isabella interested??
"I recently discovered
another Borgward.. a TS deluxe in very original condition, interior is fantastic
albeit missing its rear seat, but totally knackered! last used in 1978 and
left in its hiding place in a West Sussex barn ever since. It took a friend
and I around four hours to get the thing out, thank goodness for my old Range
It was originally purchased in Aiden by the same chap who owned the big diamond saloon Robert Richmond-Jones bought then me and now resides with Gavin Watson.
Not sure where this car is destined but thought you might like some pics for the website, I will be selling the car so feel free to mention this... I do think spares only or suitable for restoration if you are a masochist!"

Ray Mead from Pennsylvania has sent a picture of his 1958 Isabella Coupé, the car has been garaged for the last 23 years and is now being recommissioned. "I will enjoy driving it...................... I can't wait - I've always wanted one, though the one I bought is the first one I've ever actually seen in person!"
Neil Wilson has converted his Isabella to LPG and has been enjoying the car all year.
"The Borgward Isabella TS 75 took a trip to Dornock, North Scotland from Millom Cumbria. It covered 1014 miles round trip using 167.81 L of gas at about 75p/L. I.e. 6.5 miles/L (29.7 mpg) The 'money equivalent' of over 60mpg. It went, Inverness to Kendal on one filling. Do you want a full report? Note the reduction in pollutants (Gas Cert.); also the engine oil shows no sign of carbon deposits after 3000 miles in three months and am assured that the combustion space will be as equally clean." Neil Wilson

If your Isabella had covered 100,000km and had been regularly serviced by an authorised Borgward dealer you would be presented with a gold Borgward watch. This was a considerable achievement for most cars on post war streets but easily reached by almost every Isabella, to keep costs down 200.000km was then chosen, latterly only drivers of cars not registered to them were awarded as it was thought company cars would not be treated as well. however 200,000km was not a problem even with average care so a plaque and certificate were awarded to all at 100,000km.
Women's watches were also awarded but theses are very rare indeed.
