1967 BMW 1600 GT Convertible

When it comes to collectible vehicles, there’s rare and then there’s rare. After buying the German automotive manufacturer Glas in the mid-1960s, BMW made significant modifications to Glas’ Frua-styled GT, upgrading it with a 103-horsepower 1.6-liter engine, seats from the BMW 1600 TI, and circular taillights from the BMW 02 Series. Re-branded as the BMW 1600 TI, this car remained in production for less than a year, making it an extremely limited-edition Bavarian classic. That’s rare.

What makes the newly renovated addition to the BMW Group Classic collection really rare is its drop top. BMW never sold a single convertible 1600 GT, but at the behest of BMW USA importer Max Hoffmann, the company built a grand total of two. One of these cars is lost forever, but the other survives as a truly one-of-a-kind anomaly that will surely steal the breath of serious collectors around the world.
