THE BMW 320 - 1979
All in all - the BMW 320 from 1979 is looking back to its old self.
...Along with the inner wing. Heavy underside bonnet and bootlid corrosion are other problem areas.
There are still a few spots that need work, like this section of the boot floor near the petrol tank filler neck. This is a common problem area for the E21.
The roof, which had large rust blisters in the middle, required bare-metal stripping. The front windscreen surrounds needed attention too.
With rubbers changed and adjustments made, attention was turned to the car's aesthetics. The central chrime kidney grulls had suffered some dings and dents, common to London cars.
The car has a full from new BMW Park Lane service history. The Technicians checked the valve clearences just to make sure. All was in working order of course.
This is a working car, not a showpiece, but even parts that are designed to get greasy will be cleaned up and refitted.
A new timing belt has been fitten as a precautionary measure.
Original parts are restored rather than replaced. The bumper will be re-chromed.
Every rubber hose and accessible gasket is removed to check for condition. What is not reusable is replaced with Genuine BMW Parts
The classic BMW 320 from 1979 needed some work.
The classic only had 3725 miles on the clock! That works out to less than 117 miles a year.
