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 323i Auto Baur Only One Ever Built !!! Really?

Thanks to our friend and fellow Baur owner, Rick H. for posting this in Facebook today.  

BMW 323i Auto Baur  FULL HISTORY Only One Ever Built    

Only One ever built?  Really?  We have seen a yellow one in the Canary Islands*, not sure if it is exactly the same shade, however.... and Sammy (the owner) has just finished painting a different color.

UPDATE:  from Baur Guru Jeroen Janssen:
"Jeroen Janssen There where 2 323i Automatik RHD build in 148 Koronagelb. The A72450-13 and A73143-13. The last had stoff Mocca interior so has to be this example. In this way, it's unique "

But anyway, here is the listing:
"Here we have an immaculate for its year BMW 323i Baur Auto In 148 Corona Yellow, the only one of its kind ever to be built in this colour, it was a special one off factory order from Cheylesmore number 1842 off the production line with power steering, built on the18th of August 1981, a very unique car indeed... 

It comes with its original build sheet, folder and all of its original books and documents, fully stamped up history in book with a huge folder of old mot's and receipts, this is a rare opportunity to own a very rare car indeed, especially with such history...

All the body work is in excellent condition as you can see from the pictures as is its original untouched interior, the only difference from when it was built is the hand made stainless steel exhaust and replaced Goodyear Tyre's which are like new....

It starts first time and sounds lovely, it drives and pulls very well and changes gear smoothly, and you can clearly see that this car has been very well maintained indeed, everything works and the roof goes up and down and folds away nice and easy, the rear window looks like new, it comes with window protector cover and comlete BMW car cover with as you can see the tonnau cover.....

This car has been garaged for the last 12 years as you can clearly see, and only covered some 5000 miles in this time....

We can deliver this vehicle anywhere in the UK, just ask me for a quote to deliver this to your door..... ..
