Neue Klasse Coupe

In 1965, BMW ended production of their Bertone-bodied 3200 CS coupé, the last of their line of V8 powered luxury cars from the 1950s. BMW decided to continue with a coachbuilt coupé. Based on the New Class platform, the 2000 C and 2000 CS introduced the 2.0 L version of the M10 4-cylinder engine and replaced the 3200 CS as BMW’s flagship model in 1965.  This BMW 2000 CS was produced at BMW in Bavaria on the 7th of November of 1966 and delivered to BMW of Italy on the 28th of November of that year. The first owner opted for the CS model –  the 4-speed Manual Dual-carb 120 HP model. The 2000 C is single-carb, automatic model, a different animal. He chose for 060 Polaris silver over a Marine blue interior. 

Via our ‘Italian connection’ we have found this CS in Cureggio, Piemonte, Nortern Italy. The car had sat for a longer time – as with many classics, so it needed some love from Oldenzaal Classics. Though we are very happy with the condition and originality! How are the chances of finding a very solid, original condition BMW 2000 CS from 1966 in it’s original colors and engine!

The body is very original and has its original floors and sills. Note that 66-models have x-shapes in the floors and without the round paint-caps – unique. A front fascia in very good condition and original inner-fenders / A-pillars. Original doors, fenders and great panel gaps overall. This car hasn’t been apart completely and has grown old as a whole. The paint is very good and the body is straight. The original Karman-tag in the doorjamb is present and shows the body number and paint color (Polaris).

The engine-bay looks beautiful and even shows the original decal and vin-tag. The matching numbers engine has been rebuilt by us due to the car standing for long. The cylinderhead has been rebuilt, new bearings, new pistonrings, honing and a new chain we’re installed. Obviously all new gaskets, hardware and fluids we’re used. The engine is lively and makes a great noise breathing through the Solex 40mm carb’s. We have also installed a new waterpump, rebuilt startermotor, all new hoses, new thermostat, new sparkplugs, new cap, new rotor, new leads and have cleaned the carbs. 

The interior is actually very very original – now 56 years old. It shows it’s original vinyl doorpanels and wood inserts. The original carpets and headliner. The dashboard consists of the original vinyl and wood – non restored and original. The seats have been reupolstered in the correct material and color. Stunning to see an interior this original being 56 years old. 
The same goes for the trunk. The original trunk floor with the original panels covered in grey vinyl. All 56 years old. The factory toolset is present as well as the jack and spare tire. On top is the original velours mat in blue – the same as the carpets.

We did a thorough inspection and have done everything neccesary on the car. Both technically as well as cosmetic in excellent shape. In short:
