|Found nearly 20-years ago in a Southern California garage, this rare BMW almost became a vintage racer. However, it was saved and began a very slow restoration. Finally, it was completed in August of 2016 just in time for the 100th anniversary celebration of BMW at Monterey Car Week.
So, for the first time in 2 decades, this 1600 took to the roads again and performed stellar on a 1,000-mile journey with my fellow Bavarian enthusiasts.
Built in September 1966, this is one of the first BMW 1600s delivered to the United States.
Thanks to Josh Stern and his film car (1973 BMW …)
