Any info on this 69 in Palo Alto?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any information about this blue '69 in Palo Alto?

I've been talking with the owner for some time now. Sounds like a pretty clean car. Spoke to the mechanic that did the compression test, and the owner who has been driving it. Everything seems to check out.

I just want to see if anyone has driven/looked at this car. It's being sold Richard Kwan at Beyond02.

Any info would be great.

Many thanks,

I thought it the oddest thing: referring to it as a "rare Baltic deep Blue" and "bone stock" when the (obviously) original paint sticker, prominently illustrated, says "Polaris neu"!

Kwan is a broker. Best to have a look, or have someone look on your behalf in my opinion. You did see the link in my initial post, right?


Thanks, Ray. Knew it was repainted, wasn't sure the original color.

Do you know anything else about the car or the dealer?


Ask me about my E10 320i's!

as it doesn't have either headrests on the front seats or side reflectors. And the VIN itself would indicate a late '68. As has been pointed out, it must be a repaint, as (1) that shade of blue wasn't offered on 2002s in 1968 and (2) a blue car would have had a black interior; Polaris cars had dark blue interiors in 68 and 69. At least it was a thorough repaint.

Other than that looks pretty nice from the pictures.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
