Immatriculé pour la première fois le 1 novembre 1937, ce coupé BMW 327 était dans une collection alsacienne depuis 1970 quand il fut acheté par le père des vendeurs dans les années 1990. Il était alors en état d'origine, tournant et de teinte gris métallisé. Après avoir remisé la voiture, le propriétaire a décidé de lui faire profiter d'une restauration et l'a confiée aux ateliers de Jean-Luc Bonnefoy, à Orval (Cher). Spécialiste reconnu, celui-ci a procédé à une remise en état complète, avec réfection de la carrosserie, de l'électricité, de la mécanique, de l'intérieur. Un dossier de photos ainsi qu'un livre illustre la qualité des travaux effectués. Avec une peinture deux tons bleue et beige, cette voiture présente des jantes assorties et une sellerie en cuir brun clair du plus bel effet. Elle comporte son volant caractéristique à deux branches courbes, devant le tableau de bord complet qui sied à ce coupé très exclusif. Il est équipé d'un six-cylindres en ligne 2 litres développant 55 ch qui, dans le cas de l'exemplaire que nous présentons, est à remettre en route. La production de cette voiture élégante et confortable s'est limitée à 1 303 exemplaires, toutes versions confondues, jusqu'à 1940. Elle s'est poursuivie après la guerre dans l'usine d'Eisenach, sous le nom EMW, ce qui traduit la justesse de sa conception. Cet exemplaire de présentation impeccable en témoigne.

MERCI DE NOTER QUE LA VOITURE EST VENDUE SANS CONTROLE TECHNIQUE.



French title
Chassis n° 74188

- No expense spared restoration by one of the best French specialists
- Book illustrating the entire restoration
- Exclusive and sophisticated model
- No reserve

First registered on 1 November 1937, this BMW 327 coupé had been in an Alsation collection since 1970 when it was bought by the vendors' father during the 1990s. It was then in original condition, in metallic gray and with an engine that turned. Having garaged the car, the owner decided to have it restored and entrusted it to the renowned specialist workshops of Jean-Luc Bonnefoy, in Orval (Cher). The complete restoration included work to the body, electrical and mechanical elements, and interior. A file of photos and a book illustrates the high standard of the work carried out. Presented in two-tone blue and beige, the car has matching wheels and stunning light brown upholstery. It is fitted with the characteristic curved two-spoke steering wheel, set in front of a complete dashboard that suits this very exclusive coupé. The car is equipped with a straight six 2-litre engine producing 55 bhp, which in this example requires recommissioning. The production of this elegant and comfortable car continued until 1940 and, all versions together, was limited to 1 303 examples. Production continued after the war in the Eisenach factory, under the name EMW, reflecting the resilience of its design. The impeccably presented example on offer is a testament to this.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CAR IS SOLD WITHOUT A TECHNICAL INSPECTION.
