This car followed my '76, VIN 2742541, down the assembly line! And it likely came to the U.S. on the same ship. But whereas my '76 had an Elizabeth, NJ, Port of Entry, this car had a Portsmouth, VA Port of Entry. It was delivered by Tom Sweeney Imports, Inc., 7850 Kenwood Road, Cincinnati, OH 45236. Unfortunately, the car succumbed to rust and, later, I acquired the original window sticker.
The original interior was Navy Blue corduroy and vinyl, the somewhat rare cloth-and-vinyl interior offered in 1975 and 1976 by BMW NA. The car was factory equipped with a sunroof and low front seats.
