Who owns 2570065? Found your Part!

Recommended Posts

As I put together the remaking bits of my car after restoration, I ran across the upper steering column shroud, which my car still needs to have installed.  This one has a VIN that doesn’t match my car, so I would like for it to return to its owner, if still possible.  The VIN is 2570065.  Lemme know if it’s yours!

The owner was here back in 2016!  See this thread:

I have an upper steering wheel cover from my parts car you can have if this one gets reunited with that car, although it sounds as though it was pretty rough and so could’ve been parted out

Hi all, I just bought a 1971 BMW 2002 project car and am “glad to be back” (after owning a 1976 ’02 back in the 1990s). This new adventure will be a Father-Daughter project,


This poster is Eric King in Cincinnati.  He still has the car, with the restoration project on hold as his daughter is in the Navy.  It's kinda unclear if his car's VIN is the 2570065, but if it is, PM me and I'll get you in touch with him.  I'm sure he'd love to have that back.


And...interestingly, the VIN tag is all aluminum; I thought  that with the modell 71 cars, the factory changed to a black anodized border with just the number are left silver.  Yet another little anomaly with the changeover from the 166/7XXXX VINs to the 257/8/9XXXX (modell 71)VINs. 


Those all silver tags are a real distraction when driving; I painted the one on my '69 all black a week or two after taking delivery.  Took the factory another 3 or so years...

    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
