Resto Shop Recommendations


Recommended Posts

Show us what you have.  What’s your budget?  Do you already have some new parts for the restoration?  Do you want any modifications?  In my opinion, you need to budget 2x your original estimate - maybe more.

Thanks for the responses. 

To answer JRocks question:

I have an early , matching number tii with a rebuilt trans, engine and diff. Also a 

desirable color combo

The metal work has been done and I have a mountain of NOS and refurbished parts and trim. I have been collesting parts for a few years. The one weak point is seating. I have been through two restorations including a rotisserie, windows out one. That took seven years and the world could end....

I know these cars won't fetch that kind of coin, but I would have given a left

_____ back in the day for this one.

    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.
