Thanks to our friend and fellow Baur owner Craig Saxon in Australia for sending us a 'heads up' on this 1600 Voll Cabrio that he spotted for sale half a world away from him in The Netherlands! Amazing! :)
1968 BMW 1600 Convertible
BMW 1600 Cabrio Convertible 2002 1600-2 Baur. Very rare, needs restoration
Original BMW 1600 Cabriolet / Convertible. VIN Numer 1557179.
Info from BMW Classic in Munich: This BMW 1600 Cabrio with VIN 1557179 was produced on 18-06-1968 and was delivered on 28-06-1968 to BMW Dealer Eichhorn in Obernburg, Germany. The original colour was Chamonix white, code 085.
BMW 1600 Convertibles are very rare and were only produced from 1967 to 1971. Yes, it needs restoration and needs welding but is an original cabriolet. It's an older restauration probably somehere in the 80's/90's. It needs to be redone at a 2016-level by a specialist or enthusiast. Doors, sills, floors etc. need to be redone.
All 1600 Cabriolet-specific parts are there! Dash, ragtop with frame etc,
The car does NOT run. Engine is not seized, we haven't tried to start it yet.
The car comes without vehicle documents. They have gone lost after all those years. We will sell it with an official bill of sale so registering the car will be possible.
