• That is Baur #2581, one of only 25 E21 US Spec Baurs that BMW officially imported to North America, 22 of which went to Canada. This one went to Canada originally. The engine has been changed, apparently, because it was imported with the 4 cylinder US Spec M10. These Baurs are historical artifacts, in that their unusual design was in direct response to the fear (at the time) that governments might outlaw convertibles due to their safety risk in a rollover. Hence the built-in roll bar. Form follows function. This car looks like a project, but if Baurs ever achieve Collectible Status, this is one of the 25 US imports. That is rare!
