After more than 6 months of sunny summer weather all over Europe, I found myself in Amsterdam during the last 4 weeks. It was grey, sometimes wet, and cool. But that didn’t stop me from getting outside, and this hot red two-door BMW 1602 (1971-1975) just shone bright amidst the dim light and the creme coloured window frames you see in the picture below. Few red cars can really pull it off, and this is one of them.
Very nice…look at the size of that rear window! I love how older cars were like driving around in a glass bubble.
Great looking chrome trim all around to accentuate the lines of this design.
Here is a look from the front. This thing is poised for a quick getaway.
The BMW 1602 was considered an entry-level BMW, and was less expensive compared to the 4-door models.
Look at those yellow crazy yellow lights on the front. Wild. This car, like the old Mercedes-Benz cars has incredible chrome trim to wrap up the design lines.
I love it when a proud car owner keeps their ride clean and shiny like this one. Nice and polished.
Giant trunk for a small 2-door car. Another fantastic vantage point on all that glass. You can look 360 degrees all day long!
Hilarious! Look at that other 2-door coupe across the way. Which one would you choose?
Interesting low key hub caps. Look like winter tires in Canada.
Can’t get enough of chrome trim. It just adds incredible detail to the paint and helps to show off that pen design. There’s that other funny little red thing in the background again.
So, there you have it, a spectacular red BMW 1602, produced between 1971-1975 – only 5 years! Part of the BMW New Class!
That’s one Endangered Car.
