Description/extras: Owners manual. Introducing the rare and distinctive 1982 BMW 323i E21 Baur Cabriolet, a true gem for enthusiasts and collectors alike. This 2-door convertible, boasting a 2.5L inline-6 cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, offers a spirited driving experience matched with timeless elegance.

With only 97,245 miles on the clock, this classic beauty retains its original interior, exuding an authentic charm that transports you back to the golden era of motoring. Equipped with a smooth 5-speed manual transmission, every shift is a symphony of precision and control, ensuring an engaging driving experience on every journey.

Crafted by renowned coachbuilders Karosserie Baur in Stuttgart, Germany, this model is one of just 4,595 "Top Cabriolet" variants based on the E21 platform. While more akin to a Targa, it delivers the exhilarating sensation of open-air motoring, enveloping the driver in a boundless expanse of sky.

Adorned in sleek black paintwork and complemented by period-correct BBS alloy wheels, this Baur Cabriolet exudes sophistication and style at every turn. Though showing some signs of aging, including minor blemishes and touch-ups, its panels remain straight, with some rust underneath, reflecting its journey through time.

The innovative Baur-engineered roof offers versatility and convenience, with a removable main panel that stows neatly in the boot, while the rear section folds down in traditional convertible fashion. Included with the sale is a foam rubber boot spoiler, along with the original decals for restoration enthusiasts.

While this timeless classic is ready to be enjoyed, it beckons for a discerning individual to elevate it to the next level. With some attention to detail and a passion for preservation, a fresh coat of paint and rust maintenance will enhance its appearance and longevity, ensuring years of driving pleasure ahead.

Though it may require some minor attention, such as addressing a slightly sticky brake pedal and intermittent hazard warning/indicator lights, the foundation of this Baur Cabriolet is solid. With fuel tanks in excellent condition and replaced fuel lines, investing in a new fuel tank down the line could further enhance its reliability.

For those with a keen eye for automotive history and a desire to own a rare piece of motoring heritage, this 1982 BMW 323i E21 Baur Cabriolet represents an opportunity not to be missed. Embrace the thrill of the open road and experience the magic of driving a true classic.

VENDOR ADVISES: Some rust underneath, sticky brake pedal, hazard warning/indicator light at times temperamental.
