Chamonix Vollcabriolet

One very classic and elegant looking convertible. In 1968 BMW introduced the BMW 1600 Cabriolet, also known as Vollcabrio. Only 1692 units we’re produced between 1968 and 1970. All convertibles were produced by the coachbuilder ‘Baur’ in Stuttgart. These cars are among the rarest BMW’s around and are highly sought after. 

This very car was produced on the 11th of March 1970 and was delivered to BMW of Italy in Palazzolo on the 24th of March 1970. The car was factory delivered in this color 085 Chamonix White. Sold new in the Palermo, Sicily area and first registered on the 23rd of January ’71 to a certain mr./mrs. Rotelli. The original Sicilian registration (Libretto) is present!

Sold to it’s first Italian owner who drove the car up to the mid 80’s when it was parked and left untouched for another 30 years. In 2021 the car was discovered and restored.

The car was completely restored between 2021 and 2023. A complete and all-out restoration. The body was stripped to bare metal and bodywork was replaced where neccesary. A complete repaint in the factory color was performed. A beautiful finish on the outside, engine-bay, trunk and undercarriage. The car was assembled with lots and lots of new parts and the car makes an as new impression. Re-chromed front and rear bumper. New trim all around the body, new trim on the sills and re-chromed taillight roundels. New, clear headlights, new blinkers, new emblems, new gaskets. All new parts, nothing left forgotten. The body is very straight and the finish is excellent.

The interior shows the correct Convertible seats. Everything has been reupholstered in beautiful marine blue vinyl. It features a new set of carpets in the correct loop-style material. The dashboard is the correct 3-piece dashboard with Convertible-specific lock. The chrome under the dash has all been replaced and even the ashtray was restored. The doorpanels are brand new, so as the doorgaskets. 

The trunk was lovely restored with new wooden panels beautifully reupholstered in grey vinyl, a restored sparewheel, jack, tool and toolset. The frame of the convertible top has been repainted and a new top was installed. There is a new vinyl cover for when the top is top. All perfect new parts professionally installed.

Technically it’s all gone through and rebuilt. The car looks, feels and drives like a new 1600 Convertible. The matching numbers engine has been rebuilt and runs like new, sounds lovely and revs eagerly. Everything on and around the engine is new as well: Plugs, wires, cap, rotor, condensator, coil, coolant hoses, thermostat, waterpump, gaskets, fuel hoses, all filters and much more. 

The front and rear axle have been removed for restoration, we’re taken apart and have been powdercoated. After that assembled with all new bushings,  hardware, tie-rods, wheelbearings, rebuilt brake calipers, new rotors, pads, hoses, new shock absorbers, top mounts, brake lines, brake cilinders, brake shoes and more. The gearbox has been checked and re-sealed and fitted with a new clutch, guibo, center driveshaft bearing, rubber mounts and fluid. The exhaust system is all new and stock. Powdercoated swaybars with new hardware in the front and rear. The fueltank was powdercoated and inside-coated. It sits on the correct 4,5×13″ wheels that were repainted, have new tyres and the correct small chrome hubcaps.
The car was put together with love, precision and countless new parts. Factory fresh and just test miles since restoration.
