Thanks to Scott E. for posting the link to this Goodings Auction at Amelia Island Concours last March! We did cover that sale here in Baurspotting, but we didn't know that there3 was a VIDEO of the actual auction bidding available!
"1971 BMW 2002 Cabriolet
Body by Baur; S/N 2790141; Engine # 2790141;
Red/Black vinyl; Black cloth top; Older restoration, 3+ condition; Hammered Sold at $62,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $68,200. No Reserve -- Nardi wood rim steering wheel, wheel covers, Falken blackwall tires. -- Good older restoration with good paint, chrome and interior. -- One of a number of BMWs offered at Gooding's Amelia Island auction, and one of the most appealing with its Baur built droptop. The loss of the roof structure may detract from the 'ultimate driving machine', but it will more than make up for any shortcoming in that regard when the weather is good, a consideration which the Gooding bidders must have had in mind when they pursued it to this price"
Great stuff Scott!! Thank you!
Also check out the video on the BMW M1 that followed this Baur onto the auction stage!
