    I can't speak for the other Gary, but I assume that he knows the difference as I do. I was referring to the Isabella. The Isabella is a small sporty coupe. The other Borgward models of that era are really blah basic transportation boxes.

      They are still called Isabella, including the wagon.

        Correct, the coupe. I worked with a fellow in the late '70's whose uncle had been a Borgward dealer in Roanoke, VA.

              I thought there was also a pickup truck?

                    Thank you - still learning things. I only referred to the coupe as an Isabella and the others just as Borgwards. The coupes have sort of a Mercedes-Benz style/look to them with some Karmann-Ghia thrown in. I only knew one person that owned a Borgward and that was the lady with the coupe. They may have been more common in Canada.
