For Sale: 1967 BMW 1 Series in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1967 BMW 1800 takes an iconic classic style and gives you upgrades like a larger motor, five-speed, and a driver-ready A/C interior. So the sharp-handling classic you love still has that awesome vintage design, and now it delivers even more of the dynamics that make this The Ultimate Driving Machine.

Confidence is a beautiful thing, and BMW truly created a form that today we recognize as using a clean design as an understatement to the car's abilities. There's minimal flash and other add-ons to spoil the design. No spoilers or wings were bolted on over the years. Instead, it retains the original well-creased style that creates the same confident and premium appearance as a tailored suit. The sedan's shade of green will fit in with a Bavarian forest, and it shows off the car's complete trim. Big windows give the driver unparalleled views in all directions, and the grille carries the dual kidney shape that's still part of BMW today. In fact, possibly the largest flash on this car are the alloy wheels (they are an upgrade to hint at the later/larger power under the hood.)

This is part of the first generation of a new class of sport sedans from BMW, and the interior shows off why they were such a big hit. There's practical space for people in the back, and this one even has cold-blowing R134a air conditioning to keep everyone comfortable. But the true heart of the appeal was that this practical sedan was also one of the best sports cars around. You get that vintage performance feeling with the classic grippy steering wheel and full VDO readouts w/tach. Plus, this one is upgraded in subtle ways, like the front seats are vintage Recaro-style units finished in leather. And have you counted the gears on the shifter yet?

The forward-tilt hood gives a clear view of the engine bay. The 1800 made such a splash with this gutsy four-cylinder So it's nice to have it on full display. But while the car's namesake was a 1800cc unit, this one has been upgraded to a later and larger 2200cc motor. That's almost like adding an extra cylinder over the stock setup! And you get to take better advantage of the added power because the five-speed manual transmission is one more gear than stock. You'll love driving this because it remains a sharp-handling BMW with a fully independent suspension, front disc brakes, and rear Bilstein shocks. And the upgraded wheels allow you to fit modern sport tires.

Complete with owner's manual, the 1800 sedan is the backbone of BMW, and this stealthily modified example upgrades the already awesome driving experience. So don't let something this unique and vintage pass you by. Call today!!!
