1974 BMW Bavaria


Recommended Posts

Two years ago the barn finder sold it to his close friend for him to fix up. He never got around to it, so we picked it up from him. We began working on it but our novice skills were not good enough for some of the repairs so we took it to Marks Motor Mechanic in Walworth.

This car is a really really nice driver, and also really fast...surprisingly fast. Can cruise at 85. If you want the footage then maybe I can find it.  The paint is original, but it looks like someone tried to make it look nice but failed with the buffer and they made some bad marks on the hood. There very tiny bubbles on the car that are noticeable up close. It is a 5 footer. The interior is pretty nice, the dash does have cracks, and the seats are original and crunchy from the horse hair. Everything works such as dome light, the warning signals for when the doors are open or when someone does not buckle their seat belts (or a bag of groceries) The fuel gauge does not work.

    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
