One of BMW’s most celebrated pre-war automobiles
Period-correct two-tone green colour scheme

Starting off manufacturing engines for airplanes, BMW manufactured its first automobiles in 1928, and that side of the business grew rapidly. BMW’s 327 was initially launched in 1937 in cabriolet body style but could also be had as a coupé. Utilizing the shortened ladder-type chassis from the 326, that car’s six-cylinder engine was enlarged to 1,971 cc, now capable of 60 bhp. Power was managed by a four-speed manual gearbox as well as hydraulic disc brakes at all four corners.

According to information provided by BMW Group Classic, chassis 73149 was delivered with a cabriolet body; however, at some point in the car’s life an original coupé body was fitted. Documentation accompanying the car shows that it was imported to Portugal in 2008. Presently restored in a two-tone green colour scheme over a tan leather interior, this is a charming example of one of BMW’s most celebrated pre-war automobiles.



Um dos mais celebrados BMW do período pré-Guerra

Combinação em dois tons de verde correta para a época

Começado a sua atividade como fabricante de motores de avião, a BMW produziu os seus primeiros automóveis em 1928, e este seu setor de atividade cresceu rapidamente. O modelo 327 foi inicialmente lançado em 1937, com carroçaria cabriolet, mas também podia ser adquirido como coupé. Utilizando o chassis curto, tipo escada, do 326, o seu motor de seis cilindros de maior capacidade tinha 1971 cc e debitava 60 cv. A potência era transmitida por intermédio de uma caixa de quatro velocidades, tendo também travões hidráulicos nas quatro rodas.

De acordo com a informação fornecida pelo BMW Group Classic, o chassis 73149 foi entregue com carroçaria cabriolet. Todavia, em dado momento da sua vida, recebeu uma carroçaria coupé original. A documentação que o acompanha mostra que foi importado para Portugal em 2008. Encontrando-se atualmente restaurado numa combinação em dois tons de verde, com interior em pele castanha, é um encantador exemplar de um dos mais celebrados BMW do período pré-Guerra.
