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.

1974 BMW 2002 tii - Cabrio?? $5200 (Westfield ma)

Thanks to my friend and fellow Baur owner Afonso for the 'heads up' on this cabrio in nearby Westfield, MA!

1974 BMW 2002 tii - $5200 (Westfield ma)

Check out the pics, however.  Caveat Emptor.  Do you see how the windshield is curved above the little vent window?  We have discussed this before.  True Voll Cabrios by Baur have a sharper angle where the vent meets the windshield.  this looks to me like a homemade convertible.... not a true Voll Cabrio by Baur.  A chop top convertible.

What do you think?
Note the sharper angle where the vent window meets the windshield.

Here is Mike S's cabrio for comparison.

Here is the text of the ad:
"1974 2002 TII runs and drives good. A blast to drive. Gets lots of looks and compliments. Older restoration. Needs re-freshing . Driving project. Clean MA title."

Notice that the ad makes no mention of "cabrio".  He is not listing it as a convertible.

Here are the rest of the pics from the ad:

Hmmm.  Not a pretty sight.

Note all the rivets (?) above the trunk.

So... caveat emptor.  this may not be what it appears to be at first glance.  Perhaps someone can check it out for us, and report back what they find?  

Stay tuned!
