SOLD!!!!!!!!FS: Los Angeles, Ca: 1968 BMW 1600

Recommended Posts


Up for sale is my 1968 BMW 1600. Please see the very description below.

The BAD:

Salvage title, due to very minor rear end incident

Rust (left frame rail and right rear window and rockers), all fixable, had it looked at by a professional. I have found DIY for all the rust repairs on 2002FAQ

Knuckle head paint job (rattle can paint will come off, I started removing it from the hood)

No front bumper (has rear though)

Needs mirrors (may be able to dig some up)

Rattles a little/Interior is beat

Working tachometer and speedo (speedo just needs cable), needs fuel sender


Solid front and rear shock towers, no rust in windshield area, and all other areas

2.0LTR motor(strong 155+ PSI compression across the cylinders)

Clean fuel tank (no rust, dents or damage)

Euro turn signals

Smooth shifting 4SPD + E21 transmission mount

All electrical works (turn signals, emergency lights, low/high beams, taillights, windshield wipers)

New guibo/driveshaft bearing

320i radiator +silicone hoses + new thermostat + new water pump +electric fan with temp switch ($400+)

Nice condition headlight grills (used ones go for $500+) (I believe 1968 1600 grills are much rarer than standard 2002)

New gas filler neck (was $100+) and BMW locking gas cap

New brake pads and fresh fluid

Working stereo

Decent rear bumper

Extra left fender included

Doors and trunk lock

The car has great a little engine (smokes only on hard decel). I wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere. If I kept it I would probably just put some good tires/shocks/springs and drive the pants off of it.

I have always used 91 octane from Chevron/Shell/Mobil and the valve-train shows it. The valves/ports were incredibly clean when I removed the intake manifold.

I am listing this car as forthcoming as possible.

I can assure you most people aren't as honest in their description.

The car gets nice gas mileage too and compliments too.

Asking $2200 OBO.

Give me a call to schedule a test drive. The car is currently registered and I have the title in hand.

    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
