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.

NEW: Gallery of 1600/2002 Baur Cabrios and Targas

5/23/2013 Mike P. in Raleigh NC.
"Below is one that is now owned by a nice lady in Raleigh named Eileen. Imported from The Netherlands a couple of months ago. 1972, originally delivered to Italy. Lived in Dutch land for over 20 years. A few mods done to it that will be undone whenever it gets restored. For now she is enjoying it"  Mike in NC in 2002faq August 2012.

My apologies to Mike and Eileen:  I have had these pics for a while.  I thought they were already posted to this gallery.  Mea culpa.  
It is a wicked pace here in Baurspotting, and hard to keep up sometimes!

Thanks to vinceinIL of 2002FAQ for posting these pics that his brother took in Rome in February 2005.

Thanks, Vince!

We have no other information.  Anyone know this car?

1/15/2013 Some new pics from Andy S (2002faq) of a couple of his former cabrios.

Andy's former Lumma Convertible is parked behind his turbo. 

"I believe the silver cab is from VA" in pic above.  The 1600 Cabrio in the foreground was formerly Andy's, and it is the same cabrio in all of the pics below.  He sold it to someone in WI.

Old Vintage pic.  Note the E21 Baur at the top of pic."The E21 baur belongs or belong to a fellow in NC.  He is near Raleigh and used to sell parts."  The red 2002 at right is actually a Touring which Andy sold to Mike P.

The 02 in the foreground is supercharged.
"Last I heard, both of these are owned by a guy in WI."  Andy S. (former owner of both.)

Andy has a had a considerable number of bimmers over the years, including many 2002s.  From what I understand, I have not nearly done his collection of vehicles over the years justice in this brief post.  :)  Hence his sig in bimmerforums :  "2many02s".  Perhaps one of these days I can do some more.  Thank you for the pics, Andy!
1/11/2013  Thanks to my friend TomD from bimmerforums for this find.  1975 BMW 2002 Baur Cabrio (Targa).  VIN # 3590713.  Build date is 10/1975.  

Right now this all I know about it, but I hope to hear more as to its exact location, status, condition, etc., so Stay tuned!

Thanks, Tom!
1/8/2013  New find in Dallas Texas, thanks to Paul Gebbink in the International BMW '02 Alliance in Facebook.  Pics are from 2010.  Thanks for posting, Paul!  Paul commented:  " This car is fromWilliam Cantrell.He lives in Dallas and org this car is from French.He is the owner for more that 20 years.bmw 1600 with a 2002 engine in it."


bam2002 in florida posted this today in 2002FAQ.

"Here is my 1969 Baur 1600, 
Its now in black primer I had a shop restoring it, but they went out of business. So now its just sitting in storage."

We recognize bam2002!  He is also the former owner of an E21 Baur #296:

He sold it to a guy in Texas some time ago.  We are still looking for it.


I found this today:

Does anyone know anything about this car?  I did a Google search today and found this image with the info above.... but that is all there was.

10/28/2012 A pic from Ultimate Klasse:  Carl Nelson's Baur Targa Cabriolet at SoCal Vintage 2012


The two pics above are new to us.... and so is this Baur!  These are the first pics we have seen of this car at the SoCal Vintage 2012!  It is a 1600 Baur Voll Cabrio... anyone know this car?

This could be another pic of the same red cabrio above.  It may be owned by 'David " from Manhattan Beach., but we can't say for sure yet.  You will know when we know!  (Update:  We are told that the red cabrio is owned by Peter S, and that is his son Erick S. with the cigar.)
