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.

Presenting: Restored E21 Baur 4593!

Thanks to my friend, Andreas T. of Belgium, for these wonderful pics of the restoration that he did on Baur #4593 for Frits L.  This is Baur #4593 out of a total of 4595 that were built, so this is one of the last of the breed!

This post is long overdue, btw, and I apologize to Andreas and Frits for not getting it posted sooner.  It has been a hectic month!  Mea culpa.  :)

Here is the finished product on display.  Gorgeous.  E21 Baur #4593.

But it didn't ALWAYS look this stunning!  ;)  It needed a bit of work.  
As you can see.  

And that is where my friend, Andreas, comes in.  You might recall that Andreas is the owner of Baur #000001 and Baur #004595, the very first and last E21 Baurs.  We have featured Andreas and his work in Baurspotting before.  

Owner Frits L. pitches in to help remove rust.

Inspected by the Chief Engineer from BMW Centrauto Malle/ Belgium

Baur #4593 and proud owner, Frits L.

Congrats to Frits, and congrats to Andreas.  Thank you both for sharing these photos of the project!
