The Attractions

The BMW E21 was certainly one of the most important models in BMW's long and illustrious history, and was the first version of what would later become known as the 3 Series. Cars from the first series are highly sought after and collectible today, so we are particularly pleased to present this example from 1978.

This 320 is well preserved, original and in good overall condition. We have been informed that it drives well, and the seller is offering the car for sale with a freshly performed service and recent MOT. The paint, bodywork and interior show some slight signs of wear, certainly nothing particularly significant for a car of this era.

For those looking for an efficient and usable example, or a car that can be taken to a higher level of presentation by carrying out a light conservative restoration, this BMW could be an excellent opportunity.
