The stunning classic lines of the BMW E21 were a perfect base for
Karosserie Baur GmbH of Stuttgart to offer a cabriolet conversion. A total
of 4,595 Baur E21's were produced and sold through the BMW Main Dealer
network. This beautiful example is finished in BMW Henna Red (Hennarot --

original, straight and free from damage and the car is structurally
excellent. The extensive original chrome brightwork has a glorious mirror
finish with only a faint discolouration to the rear nearside corner and
front lower sections. The chrome wheel arch extensions hide no corrosion.
Factory plates and stickers in the remarkably clean engine bay confirm the
true correct Karosserie Baur Stuttgart identity, and a supply dealer
sticker inside the boot lid remains. The targa roof and and rear soft-top
are fully water tight and remain in excellent order, aside from a few
miniscule scuffs. The rear soft top operates perfectly and the targa roof
storage brackets allow the panel to be neatly stored whilst retaining
luggage space. The smartly designed fitted tonneau is in perfect
condition. Wonderfully original and a real crowd pleaser!

The dashboard is completely free from cracks and all incorporated switches
and functions are intact and operate as they should. The process of targa
top removal and rear soft top lowering is quick and effortless. A pristine
and functional interior, brilliant!

with absolutely no parking scuffs whatsoever. These stunning classic BMW
wheels are shod in 185/60 R13 tyres with masses of tread remaining. The
