"kit Car" 1600 Rebody ??


Recommended Posts

Assuming one had a 67 1600 with a hot 2 dellOrto 2 liter, dogleg 5 speed and quick steering box with damage to EVERY exterior panel (roof and decks included) but no rust...and you were considering a complete non-BMW rebody with a Devin body or equivalent...would anyone on this forum have useful links or would they all just yell at you? 


I have the car and have done equivalent work.

I know I can find a donor shell and move everything over but I've kind of "been there, done that." I know I can replace the front and rear panels, decklids and door with fiberglass, mount 4 fatso fenders and some big wheels and go "zumma, zumma" but I did that too and don't need another track car.

    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.

    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.

    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
