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.

Known 2002 Baur Targas in the US... so far

Here is a start to listing all the 2002 Baur Targas that we have found in the US.  We have lots more info and pics on each of these cars.  We will try to add that here as time allows.  

We will also be adding to this page as we find more Targas.  Apologies in advance for any inadvertent oversights..... send me pics and I will post them here!

Stay tuned!
1972 Targa in Baikal; Paul H. in San Francisco, CA

TKG's (a k a 2002Targa in 2002faq) 1973 RHD Targa Oregon (soon to be Tampa FL)

The following two Baur Targas present us with some unanswered questions:
The yellow Targa pictured above is described as number 512 of 1963 made. 

There is no other identifying info on this Targa, such as the owner, location, etc.  Do you know this Targa?  If you can identify this car, please shoot me an email, ..... or make a comment at the bottom of this blog post, if you prefer.  Any help is greatly appreciated!

 The source of this info is listed on the site as 2002 Haus, which is located in San Luis Obispo, CA.  I have sent them an inquiry as to how this number is determined.  E21 and E30 Baurs all have a Baur plate with a unique number identifying each car in sequence.  Is there a similar ID plate on the 2002 Targas?  How does one determine that this is #512 of the 1963 made?  Through the VIN?  Is there a Registry?  Inquiring minds want to know!!  


Anyone know this Targa, from the same site?
