Original Paint:

1981 BMW 320i

Please wait a few moments while our high-resolution photos load.

We like original cars, and this California-from-new 1981 BMW 320i Sunroof is one of those cars that escaped the customizing crowd for 40 years.

The Safaribeige (code 147) paint is mostly original (we had the sunroof repainted), and aside from one seat panel all of the interior is original. With only 65,537 documented miles on the clock, 40 years after it was manufactured, the car feels fresh. The original, fuel-injected 1.8-liter inline-4 humms like a Singer sewing machine and the car starts, runs, and drives heavenly.

Right now we are waiting for a new sunroof seal and a hood cable, and then she's ready for a new home. Stay tuned for more photos to come . . . .

Look ma, no leaks!

This Beemer's all-original undercarriage is out of this world!
