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.

OK, ready for this?  The Cabrio Targa pictured above, and in the bay ad, is NOT the actual car that is for sale!  :)

The seller states that it COULD look like this, once restored.  :) 

I am not kidding.  Here it is, in the seller's own words:
"PLEASE NOTE THE FIRST PHOTO IS ONLY AN EXAMPLE OF HOW IT COULD LOOK AFTER COMPLETION AND IS NOT A PHOTO OF THE ACTUAL VEHICLE"

The BMW 2002 series is important in the history of BMW for several reasons; not the least of which being that it brought the company out of near bankruptcy in the 1960s and put BMW on the map. It was the ancestral grandfather to the BMW 3 Series and was produced from 1968 to 1976. German BMW importer Max Hoffman is credited with the car's creation. He had suggested to BMW's engineering director that a 2.0 litre engine should be installed into the small two-door 1602 to improve performance and emissions. The engineering director argued that the larger motor would not fit, but Hoffman countered that it certainly would fit; if he refused to put the motor in, Hoffman would personally take a car with the new engine to Georg Meier, a famous motorcycle racer, for installation. Almost immediately this brought action - and the resulting 2002 (named after the new motor's displacement).

BODYWORK AND MECHANICS WILL NEED ATTENTION TO COMPLETE AND RESTORE ALTHOUGH ALL THE PARTS REMAINING SHOULD BE ABLE TO BE RECONDITIONED FAIRLY EASILY

NO MOT (SHOULD BE OBVIOUS BUT THOUGHT I WOULD STATE ANYWAY)

RESTORATION PROJECT ALTHOUGH VEHICLE WAS RUNNING BEFORE RESTORATION HAD STARTED, THOUSANDS HAS BEEN SPENT HOWEVER DUE TO BEING IN PARTS HAS TO BE SOLD AS SPARES OR REPAIRS
