I recently purchased 1965 1800 VIN 1237694.  I have history back to 1967 with one family ownership, father then son, until 2000 when it was purchased from the son by a friend of mine who has a shop in Bellingham, WA.  He had it painted and removed the engine to clean up the engine bay and then his business took off and it sat in a corner of his shop until I bought it a couple of weeks ago.  It has documents to verify 76,580 miles and is complete with the exception of a few parts that I will need to source, hopefully from folks on this forum.The original engine is on a stand with a freshly rebuilt head and twin solex 40PHH carbs installed.  I managed to pick up an 1800Ti air filter housing from another local 1800 owner so I will probably go with the Ti induction.

 

I would assume it would be best to post WTB requests on the regular "parts for sale" page or should I put them on the NK forum page (or both?)

 

I've owned several 02s over the years and just completed a bare tub restoration of an E9.  I'm really excited about learning the subtleties of this early NK car, built in March of 1965 according to the factory archives.

Hi All,

I think I have a bead on a 65 1800 Tisa. Reportedly street car that was converted to a race car about 20 yrs ago. The car is in Europe, so I won't be able to personally inspect. I'm told VIN on the tag is 1417801. Everything thing I've seen has Tisa's with vin starting with "9". Archive VIN decoder shows this number corresponds to an 84 320i, but it's my understanding that BMW started reusing early 7 digit numbers in the 80's. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

George

Hi George,

 

Yes, the TiSA cars had these VINs - from 995001 -  995200.

 

No, you can't use the newer VIN decoders because they requre the longer VIN numbers.

 

1417801 shows as an 1800Ti, one of the last 50 that were made, which may make it interesting from a historical viewpoint, but it's not a TiSA.

 

Here's a good VIN decoding source:

What is the status of this car ? Did you sell it ?

'67 1800 Automatic don't know the VIN off the top of my head... Polaris with black/red interior. Sitting for many many years with what I have been told is a bad transmission. The motor does turn over and I've soaked the cylinders with Marvel a few times. I've collected the pedal and brake booster bracket parts for a manual swap. Very very little rust, mainly surface on and in the hood. The last tags show '87. I don't have a title for it. My dad and I need to focus on his 1800TiSA so this one will be sold. If I'm gonna have only one NK in my life that gets all the love....

It now lives in Munich, Germany. Total restoration from 2002-2009. Some more information in the UK forum, http://www.02forum.c....php?f=40&t=308 . Cheers, Stephan

I just purchased this 1967 NK 2000 and have started the process of restoring it.
Lots to learn, as it’s my first vintage BMW. It's an amazing little car !

Picking up this hot mess this coming weekend - 1968 1966 1967 2000 in Chamonix.  VIN 1316380.  It appears to be all-original and mostly complete, just very rough.

 

I'm planning a full restoration, will probably paint it Turkis (turquoise).

 

I'm new to this group (first post) and know almost nothing about the NKs except that I've wanted a 2000 with the rectangle headlights since I first saw one about 7-8 years ago.  I've purchased this one without seeing it, $2400.  Not sure if I've overpaid, but the seller says all the rust is surface and there's nothing structural, and it's "mostly complete", so I'm diving in.  It doesn't run.

 

EDIT 7/21/2016: BMW Classic Archives got back to me, the car is actually a 1966 1967, built on September 1, 1966 and delivered on September 10th, 1966 to BMW Dealer Sehringer in Müllheim, Germany.  The original color was Chamonix 085.

I'll be seeing the car in-person for the first time this weekend!  Thank you @nt7110 for the email information for BMW Archives!

Congratulations "Duggi" on your purchase.  When I first got my 1968 2000 NK 3 years ago...one of the first things  I did was contact the BMW Registry via email with my VIN #.  Here's the email address >  info.grouparchiv@bmwgroup.com 

 

Let me know if I can be of help Duggi.  Also, if you ever need "Door Buffers" for your NK, I have a few sets left.
