BMW’s Neue Klasse was introduced in 1961 and marked the company’s first mid-range series since the Second World War, bridging the gap between the top-of-the-line 501/502 and the more affordable 700s and Isettas. It was also one of the first BMWs to receive the Hofmeister kink at the base of C-pillar, which can be seen on most of their coupes and sedans to this day. This car and the 1600 were the cars that the famous 2002 was built on. BMW was having a hard time staying in business and it was the release of the Neue Klasse series of cars that saved them.
Gaswerks Garage is pleased to offer this stunning 1968 BMW 1800 in Turf Green with a beautiful Grey interior. Powered by a 1.8L M10 making for a very exciting and fun ride! The M10 is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission that shifts without grinds or noises. The engine runs beautifully and runs very smooth. The engine and transmission are numbers matching.
Step inside the interior and you will find the beautiful Grey upholstery in great condition. No rips or stains can be found. This car is a true time capsule. The car is equipped with it’s original radio. The story of this car is quite interesting: The car was reportedly sold new in Switzerland, where it remained with the first owner for over four decades. A German collector purchased it from the original owner’s estate in 2006 and kept it for the following seven years. Gaswerks has gone through this car to make sure it drives as good as it looks. We are pleased to say this car is ready to be enjoyed for the summer driving season. Don’t wait! This car is extremely rare and unique. You won’t find another one especially in this amazing shade of green. Please call Gaswerks today!
