Early dash question


kris

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

What's the circled trim piece?  It is an ashtray or a cubby?  I bought an early 3 piece dash from BMW awhile back and I got my hands on most of the chrome trim but I'm missing whatever goes here.  Any clues, part numbers or pics are appreciated.

Ash tray, I've been looking for one for months to no avail.  Still hunting.
 
Good luck with your search.

Going to have a panel fabricated to cover the spot and hide a kill switch.

Thanks for the info.

Yep...that ashtray. I converted my dash from padded to chrome, and had to track down all of this. I lucked out, and a FAQ member sent me a message saying he had all of this stuff when he saw a post of mine looking for it all. What he did have that bears mentioning is the carriage that holds the ashtray. I looked and looked..never found. So I wound up chopping mine down to size, then spot welding it back together. Worked like a charm!

    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
