Considering selling our original, unrestored "survivor" '69 sunroof - first time listed

Two owner, black-plate (ZOS 311) northern CA (Napa and Sacramento) car since factory delivery in February 1969 - original Chamonix paint; original navy/black interior (no splits or tears, no speaker holes, no dash cracks or split headliner seams); original salt & pepper carpets; original manuals and euro-delvery plates.

Late 1968 production "series I" car (2 piston front brakes, painted grills, sliding center driveshaft, long-neck diff); mulitple upgrades (see details) - includes 100% of the original parts to return the car to as-delivered condition.

Always garaged and covered, always covered when parked outside - we've driven the car extensively in the 13 years we've owned it, including trips from northern CA to Oregon, SoCal, Arizona and Colorado with zero mechanical problems - it's fast, reliable, and a joy to drive.

Preparing to retire and downsize and will have limited garage space - as this car is too nice to return to daily driver duty, plans are to build a modified daily-driver squarelight to replace both this car and the E21 that's still saddled with bi-annual smog checks.

Will be looking for offers in the mid 20's - will have the car at the Bay Area '02 Swap & Show this weekend for ahyone in the bay area who's interested in looking. Home phone is 916-965-0206, cell is 916-342-2351 (cell is normally not on, but will be this weekend)

    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
