Usually, you don’t see BMW 3-serieseseseses of this vintage so clean, or with the Euro-style bumpers, but then you realize this 1984 BMW 318i is one of the uncommon Baur convertibles, and then you realize why it’s been so well kept. From the seller’s description:
This 1984 BMW 318i Coupe is one of the unique European models which were converted by the Baur coach works in Germany to a complete Targa top car with the full approval of the BMW factory. Many of you know the E30 succeeded the first E21 3-Series back in ’82. It came in four body styles – sedan, coupe, wagon and convertible. But one model is almost always forgotten – the TC Baur edition. Baur was the company that built convertibles for BMW back in the ’30s. It later patented the design of the folding roof BMW first used on the 2002 and later on the E30 ‘Top Cabrio’ Baur edition before the full convertible was available. It was offered through dealers in locations such as Europe, Cananda and Mexico but doesn’t seem to have reached the US officially. . It is rare to find one in the United States and these make great collector cars that can be driven everyday. This example is from sunny Florida and is equipped with automatic transmission, air conditioning and power windows. The rear half of the convertible top folds down quickly and the center top section lifts off similar to a Porsche 911 Targa top of the same era. This great little BMW is powered by the highly reliable 4 cylinder 1.8 liter BMW powerplant which received high praises by auto enthusiasts worldwide. – Air Conditioning, Power Windows, Tachometer, AM-FM, Cassette, 14 inch Alloy Wheels, Vinyl Interior Surface
