THE BODY AND TRIM
The exterior of this 1979 BMW is in AMAZING near-TIME CAPSULE condition overall with a gleaming overall finish on what appears to be the factory original Sierrabeige paint finish. The glass is also all original with factory stamping...it even sports the original Polyglot protection sticker on the side window. Is it PERFECT? No. It has a few miscellaneous imperfections which include worn original Roundel badges, a small touched up scuff on the left rear wheel arch, an isolated touched up corrosion spot on the inside corner of the trunk along with a few small rock nicks and other light cosmetic blemishes. Overall I would consider this absolutely one of the cleanest original 320s available anywhere!

THE INTERIOR
As I hope is articulated in the photos, the interior of this non-smoker 320i is in astoundingly original, close to new condition! From the pristine original loop carpeting to the untouched door panels to the fabric upholstery up to the beautiful original sunroof-equipped headliner, this is quite a specimen with working Blaupunkt stereo along with all working lights, gauges, controls AND the working odometer too! Imperfections? The records show that the front and rear seat upholstery has been redone a decade or more ago and very slightly mismatched to the head rests. There is a VERY minor crack on the near-flawless dash. Generally speaking, this is one very well preserved classic cockpit!

THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
This little BMW starts easily with superb running engine, excellent shifting transmission, solid and secure braking, buttery smooth steering and splendid tossable and balanced non-assisted steering handling. The suspension is smooth, quiet and rattle-free. There is a very slight 55 mph wobble...possibly wheel balance or flat spots on the tires. Driving this E21 is a crisp, responsive and splendid motoring experience,
