Selling a 1956 BMW 507
Good art is not always destined to be a success at the marketplace. This was the case in the 50’s for Albert von Goertz’s classic 1956 BMW 507, which ironically is now one of the most sought after classic cars in the contemporary market. The Series I, produced between 1956 and 1957, is of slightly awkward configuration; the vehicle’s 29.2-gallon fuel tank is located behind the rear seats, making sitting cramped and limiting storage space in the back. This minor flaw was later corrected for subsequent cars. However, its initial economic failure is due not to design flaws or lack of aesthetic appeal – indeed, with elegantly sloping lines that managed to convey both energy and power, it was hailed by critics as a masterpiece – but rather due to the struggling German economy in which it was constructed. Its final market price was double what it was projected to be, and nonetheless the manufacturers did not turn a profit. For this reason, it is a rare treasure, as there are only 252 known to have been made. For its beauty and rarity, this beautiful model is now a great prize to any collector that can get his hands on it.
