1982 BMW 323i Baur

1982 BMW 323i Baur
Memorial Day 2010 First Drive 1982 323i BMW Baur Lapisblau M20 5 speed #4154 of 4595 made. The car was imported to California by Dietel Enterprises. I have since changed the wheels, installed the clear turn signal lenses, and I am in the process of installing a new cabriolet roof. I have to do something about those bumpers, too. :) I love this car! To see one of the reasons why, check my post "Score One For the Good Guys" on 6/26/2011.

BMW 2002 Baur Convertible - Car Project, Hobby, To Do Up, Restoration Ebay UK

Found along with the the yellow Cabrio Targa today:

BMW 2002 Baur Convertible - Car Project, Hobby, To Do Up, Restoration

RESTORATION PROJECT: BMW 2002 Baur Convertable 
"This is a rare opportunity to acquire a real piece of BMW history. There were 861,940 “02’s” built of which 2517 were convertibles. To make this car even more scarce – only 354 of these cars were the right hand drive (RHD) version.
This car has undergone a good deal of first stage renovation. There is a new front valance and it did have new paint some years ago. There appears to be a little rust but nothing more than surface coverage in places.
All the parts are present to put it back together including a number of surplus parts that have come from a donor car. The trim is nearly all complete.  It also looks as if the bottom end of the engine has also received a re-build at some point in past years. 
The car was manufactured on 7th February 1973 and was then exported to BMW London Ltd on the 2nd March 1973. The car is still in its original colour (possibly the best colour) of Polaris Silver (paint code 60).
The car also has upgraded alloy wheels from original. The spare parts include a set of twin headlights for conversion. This is a straight original car and a great base to create a well restored rare appreciating classic car.
Inspections welcome - please ask all questions before bidding.  
Tel: 07864 288607 or 07976 570254.  
Car is stored at TF9 (near Market Drayton, Shropshire).
On winning bid, 10% deposit is due via Paypal with the remaining amount to be paid by Paypal or cash on collection.  You will need a trailer to collect - it does not come with the trailer.  Please collect within seven days of winning.  No time wasters or PX please."

OK, Aaron A. M. Are you ready to discover what we mean by "It's a Small Baur World"? I just went through my files because your car looked familiar to me. I have a black on black Baur listed only as "Sonora Baur"..... the pics are not dated, but they have been in my files for at least 2-3 years.

Thanks to our friend and fellow owner Uwe H. for this link to an E21 Baur on ebay Germany!  Thanks, Uwe!  It has been repainted (from the original red to blue).   Baur plate #3715.


For sale is my BMW 323 i, very good condition. Condition score 2 +.
The vehicle is deregistered since 16.11.2007 in a hall.
The car was fully restored by the previous owner and master and
of painted red to blue (metallic). The entire roof was supported by a
Specialist company renewed + new rear window. Are only in the cover
1-2 snaps easily broken. Rear window protection leather is attending.
The interior is charcoal black with original BMW E21 Recaro seats
with leg rest and side support. Everything still in excellent condition.
The radio is removed is given by appointment.
The car has a power antenna.
The front window has a green wedge.
The roof is covered with blue fabric. New condition.
It was installed a Zender front spoiler.
The exhaust silencers are newly installed.
The vehicle is on aluminum rims and is lowered. The tires are due
not to use the extended length of time.
The vehicle is technically in very good condition. Of course, it must all times
be controlled due to the long service life.
As an accessory, it would be an additional Recaro driver's seat, black and white indicator lenses, power steering
U.S. indicators, electric door mirrors, tail lights, speedometer, rear trim panel in red, extensive literature
and possibly a Alpina shift knob, and Alpina Alpina emblems and horn knob to the MOMO steering wheel.
I may give more foot pedals of the BMW M GmbH.
Everything after consultation of the sales price.
The vehicle was signed out to the first few years after restoration, every winter.
There are only minor rust in the left rear panel below the rear lights and the left
Fenders front and rear. (Minimum work needed). In the trunk is scratched by the
Loading and unloading.
A complete carpet set with boot mat set made of velor leather with lettering and matching 
Vehicle silhouette made exclusively for this vehicle only.
Everything is understandable, only the speedometer has been replaced by the previous owner for the restoration of noisy data
and does not match the mileage match (milage is higher).
Please only bid or ask if you have serious interest in this vehicle.
Since this is a rare vehicle is my immediate purchase is five digits. Please do not include requests.
Due to the long service life should tires, belts and gums checked. This is also the reason why I use the
Car would not start without the car is pre-checked, so there is no damage in the engine.
The vehicle, however, is quickly ready for use with very little effort and could have the new owner by the
Spring and summer roll.
You may be even a BMW 316 i E30 Baur Convertible for sale in a sporty original condition.
Cashmere Beige Metallic with dark brown top. (In cashmere beige only 3 pieces only one car were sold and which have
brown convertible top according to my knowledge.)
The vehicle must be picked up within one week after end of auction or by appointment.
For sale by owner. No returns. No warranty.


Good luck with the sale, and thank you, Uwe, for the link!
