This car belong to my kids grandparents, been sitting for over 20 years in Tempe AZ desert dry climate. I pulled it out and was really wanting to restore it to as original as possible but after discussing we decided to sell it for $5000 obo cash. It's non running and the interior needs a lot of work, There is small 3 inch area of rust found on bottom right fender, more surface rust, a couple of rust bubbles. I had the door keys made but it will need a new ignition switch, the locksmith didn't bring the right key for the trunk, not sure if it's broke or just locked. I may end up drilling it out to get the door chrome mirror and the 3rd hub cap, whatever else is in there. Matching VIN 1562051 and showing 84418 miles, not sure what was wrong with it when they stopped driving it. I had a mechanics look at it and said the engine still has compression and is not locked. Finally found a locksmith who could open the trunk and found pretty great trunk treasure. Original Owner's handbook, Owners Guide, jack and took kit. pg2 has the story. Per BMW archive The BMW 1600 US VIN 1562051 was manufactured on December 20th, 1967 and delivered on January 02nd, 1968 to the BMW importer Hoffman Motors Corp. in New York City. The original color was Caribe, paint code 059. Just added more photos of the trunk pg 2 of this posting has the story. Pretty exciting trunk treasure find.
