BMW 320- 1938

BMW 320- 1938

A short-lived classic! The BMW 320 was built for just one year. First presented in July 1937, the 320 showed a close resemblance to the transitional 329. The 320 was smaller, lighter, and less expensive than its predecessor. The 320 was a high per-formance car with many admirers. It offered easy handling, a good power to weight ratio, splendid equipment, and a fine finish. Its lines were distinctive with wide sweeping fenders and a slim radiator that blended into the clean, streamlined body. It was offered as a two-door saloon or cabriolet. This car’s cabriolet body was one of a special run produced by the Baur Coachbuilding firm in Stuttgart. It is probable that a U.S. serviceman brought the car back to America after Cold War duty. The Veteranen Club Deutschland reports having knowledge of only 17 surviving examples of this model.
