Legal delivery to: BMW of North America (Montvale, NJ) on April 26, 1976
Port of Entry: Portsmouth, VA
Delivering dealer: Tom Sweeney Imports, Inc., 7850 Kenwood Ronald, Cincinnati, Ohio 45236 (DEALER 78400)
This car, VIN 2742542, followed my '76, VIN 2742541, down the assembly line! And it very possibly 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. Unfortunately, the car succumbed to rust and, later, I acquired the original window sticker from the last owner.
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.
