In Connecticut, a collection of significant BMWs is available for the first time in its history. Though the vehicles are all projects at some level – from bare shells to drivers in need of basic refurbishment – they represent significant cars in the BMW family and the owner is anxious for them to find new homes with caretakers that can bring them back to life. The collection features some of the most significant examples of BMW’s Motorsports family, as well as iconic models like the 2002 (including a shell of a Tii Touring) and a classic 502 sedan.
The collection snakes its way through connected mill buildings where many of the cars have been parked for years, as evidenced by a coating of dust and boxes on 6-Series and Bauer cabriolets alike. The highlights of the collection include two E28 M5s, one of which has a solid body while the other has sustained damage from a front-end impact. Both cars haven’t run in some time and will need refreshing, along with a European–market M635 that is complete with factory Recaros, euro bumpers and BBS basketweaves. Again, this car has not run in years so a thorough mechanical inspection will be required.

Many of the cars have been stored inside for years, such as the CS coupe and a silver BMW 502 sedan, parked nearby.
The collection of 2002s alone consists of both round-tail lights and square-tail light models in varying levels of condition.
This rare 2002 Tii Touring is a rolling shell but nearly 100% rust-free.
Upon touring the facility this weekend – which included far more vehicles than listed here – I learned that the owner was a long-time member of the BMW CCA and toured the popular tuning facilities in Germany on a special group trip in the 80s, including Alpina and Hartge, not to mention the Motorsports division. He has several rooms full of parts representing some rare stock he shipped home, so don’t hesitate to get in touch and ask if he has that elusive air dam or wheel set you’ve been hunting for.
