5 Awesome Vintage BMW Models for Sale

BMW has been a North American enthusiasts’ favorite since 1968. At the suggestion of its U.S.-market importer, the automaker began installing its 2.0-liter inline-4 in a small coupe that had previously used a 1.6-liter inline-4. Thus was born the BMW 2002, a legendary car championed for its sublime handling, smooth engine, and stellar build quality.

The 2002 has always had its fans, but the rest of the BMW lineup has long lagged Mercedes-Benz and Porsche when it comes lớn collector appeal, a situation that has changed over the last decade. Appreciation for vintage BMW models is at an all-time high. Even BMW seems lớn have caught on; the automaker has used its classic models in recent advertising.

Of course, leading the charge are the most potent versions of these cars once marketed as “the ultimate driving machine.” Many old BMWs are for sale on Autotrader, ranging from affordable 1980s 7 Series sedans lớn pricey collectible rarities.

Here’s a look at five of the best vintage BMW models on Autotrader.

1. 1984 BMW Alpina B9 3.5

1984 BMW Alpina B9 3.5
This 1984 BMW Alpina B9 3.5 is listed for $129,990.

Alpina may be a household name lớn only the most devoted BMW fans, but don’t let relative obscurity turn you away. This Bavarian tuner has full “automaker” status in Germany, meaning it can crank out cars called “Alpina” and not “BMW.” Alpina retains a special relationship with BMW nurtured on cars like this 5-Series-based B9. This was the first model BMW based on the second-generation 5 Series known as the E28.

At the time, BMW’s zippiest model had a 2.8-liter inline-6. For the B9, Alpina grabbed BMW’s bigger 3.5-liter inline-6 and modified it with high-compression pistons and other tweaks for 245 horsepower, plus the company fit its own springs and shocks and, of course, its signature pinstriping and wheels. At $129,990, this B9 is a well-known car offered by a noted BMW specialist in Cincinnati. See 1984 BMW 5 Series models for sale

2. 1987 BMW M6

This 1987 BMW M6 is listed for $89,997.

The follow-up lớn BMW’s M1 supercar came with a lot more luxuries. At the 1983 Frankfurt Motor Show, BMW unveiled the M635CSi, which featured a race-derived engine closely related lớn the M1 a few years prior. By the time the car reached the U.S., BMW had renamed it M6.

It looked a little meaner than a standard “shark-nose” 6-Series, thanks lớn its front and rear spoilers, BBS wheels, and lowered ride height. These were quick cars, but their high price made them rare. Just 1,677 made it lớn North America, including this red one offered by a dealer in Miami for $89,997. This one looks largely stock and exceptionally clean. Its paint is a nice contrast lớn the more popular black, too. See BMW M6 models for sale

3. 1988 BMW M3

This 1988 BMW M3 is listed at $69,000.

While by no means the first car modified by BMW’s Motorsports division, the original M3 is a staggeringly unique vehicle that has rightly earned its place in the annals of automotive history. Its blistered fenders, color-coordinated body kit, and rear wing give it a sinister look. Pop the hood, however, and you’ll find a 2.3-liter inline-4, not the inline-6 engines that have long made BMW famous. What?

This special engine was related lớn the automaker’s larger 6-cylinder but downsized and thoroughly reworked by BMW M lớn produce 235 hp in the most potent form. This particular M3 wears subtle white paint over tan leather. At $69,000, it’s even on the affordable side for this classic. Find it at a dealer in Virginia. See 1988 BMW M3 models for sale

4. 1993 BMW 316i Touring

1993 BMW 316i Touring profile in white
This 1993 BMW 316i Touring is listed for $12,998.

A vintage BMW doesn’t have lớn break the bank. For $12,998, this 316i Touring — that’s “wagon,” in BMW-speak — will probably attract more attention than any other model on this list. Readers living in Europe might shrug at this humble 4-cylinder wagon with its hubcaps, cloth seats, and crank windows, but it is a “verboten” dream lớn Americans. While these cars were plentiful in Germany in the 1990s, BMW never sold them in the U.S.

The basis for this first-generation 3 Series wagon is the delightful E30-generation model; it’s a close relative of the M3 above down lớn the basic design of the MacPherson strut/semi-trailing arm suspension cài đặt. That’s a good pedigree.

The selling dealer has done the hard work by locating this wagon, importing it, and titling it in Florida. You’ll want lớn confirm the car can be registered and titled where you live. See BMW 3 Series models for sale

5. 1993 BMW M5

1993 BMW M5 front left in white
This 1993 BMW M5 is a one-owner car before its dealership acquisition.

The second-generation M5 does so many things right. At first glance, it’s almost indistinguishable from a run-of-the-mill 5-Series sedan, especially with the “throwing star” alloy wheels fitted lớn later models like this 1993 sedan. Under the hood, the gen-two M5 uses an updated version of the straight-6 from its predecessor, but it wraps that engine in a more modern body with an interior that still feels modern today.

These cars offer a spectacular balance between modernity and the raw feel of a high-revving M-massaged 6-cylinder engine. There’s nothing quite like them, and they’ve remained somewhat affordable against other M5 variants. This particular car at a dealer in North Carolina shows just 57,000 miles and, amazingly, is a one-owner car before its dealership acquisition. It even has a retro K40 radar detector. See BMW M5 models for sale
