Not sure, but your right it is pretty.

Looks like heavily modified detroit iron to me. The lines remind me of a GM F Body. Something like a Firebird convertible. If not than your user name suggests a Dodge or Plymouth.


The front clip is entirely wrong for a BMW.

Pretty, if not the least BMW-like for the time. What a terrific example of the style sensibilities of its era, though--the Space Age/Mod vibe is really goin' on! If I saw it at a concours I would half-expect someone in a velvet Nehru jacket and Beatle boots to come running up, jump in and drive off with a cry of "Thunderbirds are go!" :)

wow. Didn't look Italian from the front.

This view has obvious Bertone style cues.

Interesting but.....

One ugly car!

The front view is the nicest.

Wow. Never seen a BMW that...ugly.

That years. That design definitely belong to America. The grills look like they are sticked to the front.

IMO, its someone swapped the bmw engine into a american muscle body. Then trying to show some appreciation to the company by convert it into BMW with logo and grills

Yeah, definitely uglier than the Z1! Maybe it would look better with a different paint job, but that interior makes me want to barf...into the interior!

That green in the interior is a bit much, but I like a lot of other things about this car.

Autoblog had a great series of photos of it a year ago: http://www.autoblog.com/photos/1969-...picup-concept/

I love the front end! The rest I am not too crazy about. But was just curious on what bmw it was and you guys nailed it! great forum!!

Perhaps the precursor to the TR7, The Lead Wedge?
