1983 BMW 320is


Today we have a nearly immaculate survivor of the best E21 model BMW brought to America. With some handling and cosmetic upgrades, the 320is was a tidy little package. It’s amazing that after 32 years and 117k miles this Hennarot example looks as showroom fresh as it does. The paint, chrome, interior, engine bay, and even the toolkit all look virtually unused. The E21 generation has its own distinct charm, a bit more quaint than the E30 but still a playful little sports sedan, and this is among the best examples we’ve seen.

We’ve seen E21s that look like this go into the mid-teens, but they usually have well under 100k miles. The mileage may keep this example under $10k, but the new owner is going to have a great looking car that they’ll want to take great care of but also won’t be afraid of putting a few miles on.

    Wow, I owned the same car, except with the pleather seats, back inna day. These are honestly so much fun to drive. Can’t believe what they want for this one or that people are genuinely bidding it up so high, based on recent history. That paint really makes me raise an eyebrow, too. Looks exactly like my resprayed quarter panel did and nothing like the rest of my car.

    Still, quite a beauty and clean. If anything’s the matter with it – easy as pie to fix.
