Beige but good: ’69 BMW 2500
The BMW New Six is a line of six cylinders produced by BMW from 1968 to 1977. The series was introduced as a response to Mercedes Benz’s domination of the large luxury car segment. The New Sixes were very important in establishing BMW’s reputation as a maker of sporting, luxury sedans. A Coupe version was produced alongside and it too has a loyal following. The sedans had the internal name E3, while the coupés are E9. The 6-cylinder engine designation is M30 and a sweet engine it is. The two initial models, introduced in 1968 and sold through 1977, were the 2.5 L 2500 and 2.8 L 2800. Today’s find is in rare, original condition. It is a 2-owner car covering a scant 52,700 miles since new. And it really looks like it to. The interior is generally pretty durable in these cars and this one is exceptional. The seller tells us that everything is operating properly including the always overlooked clock. Unfortunately, it has been refinished in the original color so you can’t compete in any preservation class competitions. But I guess who really cares anyway. These are just great cars to drive, like the smaller 2002. We don’t think you’ll find a nicer one out there. The seller is asking $17900 for this one. If it was a 2002 in this condition, it would be fairly priced for sure. Not sure if it is for a 2500. Click here for the listing.
