1971 Bavaria

Does anyone know anything about these cars ? Like personal experience working with them. I caught a good deal on one, and I'm about to start ordering some parts. New belts, new spark wires, new plugs, hoses, tires and whatnot. Its a straight 6 with dual weber carbs, but I simply cannont find much via the google machine on this car, except that it was called the "Bmw New Six"

If you didn't already know, this may be a little help.

BMW has put the Mobile Tradition CD on-line. (That's the parts catalog)


click on Parts Supply
click on Historic Parts Catalog
click on the Now Online! link

realoem has it on-line too

The Bavaria is one of my favorite old BMWs. Never owned one though.
The models and equipment (standard and optional) illustrated in this post reflect my misunderstanding of vehicles supplied by BMW AG to the German market. In other EU member states, the truthyness of my posts may vary. Please ignore this post. Subject to change.

Thanks guys!

After a bit more of vin number investigation and some more reading, Ive determined that my car is:

BMW Bavaria 2.8 1971 "New Six" Original color was Sahara.

Im bringing back to my place this weekend to start tearing apart the engine. Ill also be taking a plethora of pictures and writing down everything. I also would like to build a website dedicated to working on these old cars since all the current sites are not updated often anymore.
