Selling a 1969 BMW 2000 Sedan
As BMW, the pride of German auto manufacturing and design, was closing out the 1960s, the company leadership was intent on continuing that hard-won success they had so breathtakingly earned throughout the previous decade. A number of New Class models had come and gone (the 1500, the 1600) while the solid 1800 was continuing along with respectable sales and an unimpeachable reputation for engineering excellence. But the coming decade would be heralded far more so by the 1969 BMW 2000 Sedan than by any other model in the stable. An attractive combination of sturdy driving, forceful acceleration, excellent visibility, and all around comfort for driver and passenger, the 1969 BMW 2000 Sedan was an automotive prophecy in and of itself—and the omens were positive. As evidenced in what the 2000 series itself embodied, BMW had demonstrated that intelligent engineering and responsiveness to customer input could yield a competitive, highly drivable sedan capable of reinvigorating an industry from within.
Strutting about the European highways with its M10 SOHC motor, the 1969 BMW 2000 Sedan was a comprehensive step up from the 1.8-liter 1800 series it had been designed to replace. With a 1990 cc displacement, the 2-liter M05 variant yielded a very respectable horsepower, over 100, and was torqued to the liking of sporty drivers who nevertheless found themselves in need of sedan properties. Each successive New Class iteration succeeded in raising the bar for BMW’s engineers, as the public continued to embrace these adventurous sedans while clamoring for more power, tighter handling, a bit more comfort, a touch of style. And to its credit, BMW rarely saw fit to compromise in any significant way. The 2000 series was “pudding proof” of the Bavarian car manufacturer’s ambitious approach to vehicle engineering, as the 2000’s offered greater power, superior handling, et cetera. These attributes are alive and well in modern BMWs, but the original complete package has aged well. Sellers can make the conversation an easy one if they follow a few standard sales tips.
