    Wow, amazing price for a pretty solid looking project.

    The Baur registry guys will be along shortly to ask you for the Baur number and VIN, so you might as well go ahead and post that.

    My phone hasn't rung yet.

    BTW, your profile on here contains no contact information. So, I have no way of getting ahold of you until you call or respond on here.

    I'm half ready to leave work early to make towing arrangements.

    I'm guessing this guy wants this car to find a proper home vs make every possible dollar on it.

    It's a good thin I have a garage full of cool kid parts to help make this whole. And a matching 320i to steal parts from. Not to mention having a friend who's just finishing up his e21 Baur build so I can pick his brain.

    This would perfect at the perfect time. Cosmic mumbo jumbo must be at work here. Or a typo.

    Someone really just run the tag on the photos already. Can anyone on here do that??????

    Calling law enforcement.....
    Cali tags, 4CIL 285.. Come on now!

    hELL, I'd buy this and ship it!

    I am somewhat suspicious of someone who can post pics with only 1 post to their record though.

    If they were looking to commit a felony, why would they do it for only 200 bucks? I say it's legit. Just someone that's a lurker. I search his username and came up with a bunch of low post numbers on other forums. Looks like the guy (girl?) is more of a reader than a writer.

    I am expecting to find out that $200 was a mistake for $2000 though.

    Whoa! I think we know that Baur! Look at those wheels!

    Let me do some checking.

    Stay tuned!

    Day um. Work can be soooo inconvenient!





    How about this one?

    This could be the same car: strip off the mirrors, front spoiler and bumpers.... looks like he may have parted it out for another project perhaps.... just saying.

    UPDATE:
    BINGO!

    Last Seen Wearing: 1981 323i Chicken Saw Oregon 2007



    Ok, Baurhunters. I was surfing through r3vlimited today and I came across this Baur from September 2007.

    Your Mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find this Baur! I have attached some clues below.... it bears a remarkable resemblance to conkitchen's white Baur, which he transformed into the car that is now docjohn's in Arizona!

    Stay tuned!




    Look at what is parked in the background!


    RARE RARE - 81 323i baur - full zender kit and recaros
    Feel free to cross-post to an E21 board... I dont know of any...

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    1981 323i Baur convertible --PROJECT CAR--


    This is a very VERY rare car. It is rare to find E21 323i's, and it is rare to find E21 Baur's. To find an E21 323i Baur, is nearly unheard of.

    This is a project car, and deserves to be put back on the road.
    Clear title.
    Will part out if no takers (would be a shame)

    *Full authentic zender kit (airdam, side skirts, rear skirt)
    *euro bumpers in good condition
    *2.7L M20 (not hooked up)
    *5 speed trans
    *150k on chassis
    *no diff
    *15" fittipaldi reps available, comes with bottlecap wheels
    *dash is cracked, recaros have been recovered (and need it again)
    *top has some tears

    $2000 obo
    Attached Images


    That can't be this car, can it? Look at those wheels! The quarter panel has a marker on it, and I believe conkitchen's car had square headlights, at some point. Two white baurs in Oregon with similar wheels? Hmmm. Quite a coincidence, at the very least!!

    this car was also in Oregon, purchased by conkitchen and brought to CA, now owned by docjohn Arizona. Here is a comment by conkitchen:
    " It came with no BAUR identification due in part to the front end having been completely replaced. The only remaining evidence of ever having been a real TC1 (non 323) was some of the euro parts, roof assembly, plus the two rivet holes for the euro spec ID tag (not baur tag) on the passenger side were evident. Otherwise, the VIN comes up as a 1979 US model. "
    Further: "For all I know perhaps the roof and parts were adapted from a totaled baur onto a 320i. But when and by whom for what reason, and why not keep the BAUR tag etc...? It is a real baur top."



    Preliminary theory: Two different white E21s were in Oregon; one was the 1981 Baur with Fittipaldi wheels. The second car was a 1979 US Spec E21. The first car is listed as a 1981 323i, with a 2.7L stroker (not hooked up??) and no diff.

    The 1981 Baur was perhaps wrecked, and salvaged with parts from the white 1979 non-Baur US model, and the 1979 VIN was used to register it. Look closely: The paint on the driver's front quarter panel and driver's door does not match the paint on the rear quarter panel.

    The car has been transformed again since the above pics were taken. Front panels were again replaced with red panels, and the rear quarter panel was repainted. Confused yet?

    I want to emphasize that the above is just a theory. It is pure speculation on my part that may have no relation to the reality of the car whatsoever. Kind of an interesting theory, though.

    Stay tuned!



    Here is the Piece de Resistance:

    Both were once a 323i, and both now have a 2.7L unhooked up. Game, Set, Match!

    Two different cars. Look at the federalized marker lights

    Definitely the same car. Sidemarker style and placement on a euro is like a fingerprint. Not two exactly the same.

    Since we're scrutinizing it, I noticed it has a pre-79 style trunk emblem and a US front valance (probably swapped out when the zender parts were removed).

    You guys are correct. Its the same car. In the process making it a curser the zender parts were swapped.

    Glad it will be going to a good home.

    I'll surely pass along any information I have on the car. And, I'm kind of a post whore, so it will have a very well-documented build.

    Probably correct. The DMW probably doesn't have an accurate category for a Baur. Either way, thanks for running that.
