Hi,

My grandfather in Romania has a 1960s (might be 1969) BMW. It still runs and has been maintained thoroughly. I'm not sure on the model but it's 4 doors. Maybe I'll call him tomorrow and ask the details.

How much do you figure something like this could be worth?

Look at ebaymotors.com... do a search for BMW, 1960-1969... there are some cars on there.

Perhaps $5000-$8000 depending on the condition?

You need to look online at more classic car sales sites... and those were current bids.....

If the car was restored... refreshed... and it was a good original survivor (which it sounds like it is) Ö itís worth spending more time looking at retail value.

Hmm retail value? What does that refer to for old cars?

Here are some examples....

BMW 2002 2 DOOR SEDAN - Barett-Jackson Auction (http://www.barrett-jackson.com/auctionresults/common/cardetail.asp?id=181901)

1974 BMW 2002 2 DOOR HARDTOP - Barett-Jackson Auction (http://www.barrett-jackson.com/auctionresults/common/cardetail.asp?id=185091)

It would be cool just to have it... drive around in a classic car...

Yea I guess. What changes would have to be made to it to be licensed in Canada? (I know it imposes some gay rules)

I think with classic cars +30 years or more they get to by pass alot of the standards that are put in place now. Emissions, current safety standards and the liking.

Not 100% sure about that though.

Probably about 2 grand or so, depends on Condition and if you can find a buyer.

There was a 4 door '1802' with square headlights, late 60s vintage for sale in ottawa fOREVER, asking 2 or 3 grand. Nobody wanted it. Probably didnt help that it was automatic. but N e Ways.

I would only bring that car over if you really love that specific car, otherwise the hassle of importation etc/ $$$ is just a waste of your energy.

No it wasn't that big in the tail. I think the headlights were square, not the typical round bmw lights.

I think it may have looked like this:

This one's actually from RO

Ok so I'm pretty sure it's a BMW 2000, probably from 1967-1969.

Not 100% sure about that though.


here in the states, cars of that age which are considered classic or antique, dont have to abide by any of the current safety or emissions laws, they have to have by law any and all safety or emission standards that the car had when it rolled off the assembly line.

So if your car had one mirror and no seatbelts in 1960, then it doesnt need it today. Not sure if its the same for you guys but thats how it is here.

Wow, neat to see such an old car in such nice shape. There is one exactly like that a few minutes from my work. It was forsale on autotrader for only a few grand though.

I would check under the body for the rust. The winters are kind of bad in Brasov.

It's plated for Brasov, but it actually lives in Tirgu Mures. I would bring it over if he'd give it to me but right now he's trying to sell it for 5k euro's lol and it's not going obviously.
