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.

Thank you!  I won't know until I see the car what it needs, but I'll reach out if those buffers are missing or broken!

Ya'll probably already saw it, not sure why I haven't posted here yet... Like a doofus, I was putting everything in the OT section and forgot about the NK Registry.

Lots of info in this thread - 

 

I've been driving it for the last several months...it's basically gas, tires, and oil right now.  Starts right up, drives beautifully, all the electricals work as they should, even the heater fan works.  I've been gathering parts for months and really need to bite the bullet and tear the car down for full paint and interior.  

 

I'm still needing a few pieces like better kidney grills and a proper NK interior mirror.  If anyone has a lead on such things, let me know.

 

Enjoy,

I purchased what is believed to be an NK engine with an E21 head. It has a serial number stamped on it (1255223) which matches a vin of a 523i Limousine. Does anyone know of another way to research what I have?

Adding my new one to the registry:

1968 2000 in Granada

Originally delivered from the Schorsch Meier dealer in Munich.  Still waiting to hear from BMW on more details.

Now located in San Francisco, CA.  Last registration: 1996.  Seems to have been in CA since 1973 (from the stickers on the license plate).  Even has a BAR sticker and some smog info since it was imported during that weird period between 73-76.
