    1560364

      Model: BMW 1600-2
      Year: 1968
      Manufactured Date: 09/19/1967
      Original Color: Chamonix
      Sunroof: Standard
      Transmission: 4 Speed Manual
      Current Color: Chamonix
      Current Owner: West Palm 2002
      Last Sold: 06/21/2018

    Legal delivery to Hoffman Motors Corp on September 26, 1967

     

    Port of Entry: Charleston, SC

     

    Delivering dealer: Bob Bywater Motors, 1518 Palmetto Street, Florence, SC

     

    Recent sale: Bring a Trailer, auction concluded June 21, 2018, $4,300 (more photos remain available on the Bring a Trailer website)

     

    This is a remarkable example in that a great deal of the factory original parts and finishes have survived, augmented by the car’s original window sticker.

     

    The ten photos below (including the all-important window sticker) are from the Bring a Trailer website. Other than the optional steel sliding roof — rare on early 1600-2 sub-models — the options listed are typical of Hoffman Motors-imported cars. As shown in the photos, the car was equipped at some point with a rare Mark IV Custom air conditioning unit. Blaupunkt (Hamburg?) AM radio remains in place.

    Thanks 

    now wanting a e28 M5


    It’s going to be challenging to find one as un-abused as this 1600-2!  There’s been 6 to 8 e28 M5’s — my estimate, maybe it’s more — at the last few Vintage meets in Asheville.  Even if none of those is for sale, I’ll bet their owners know where other cars are....


    Drive the ‘68 up to Vintage next May: show it off, look at the E28 M5’s, and talk to the M5 owners....


    Best regards,

     

    Steve
