Among the last of the big-engine luxury coupes BMW produced following its early postwar luxury platform, the 1964 BMW 3200 CS was a transition more than anything. It retained some mildly outdated engineering from the 503 that came before it, such as a solid rear axle, a perimeter frame, and pushrod engine valves, but it also became something of the template for BMWs later coupes, aesthetically speaking, with the Hofmeister Kink, tall greenhouse, and low beltline, along with the immediately-recognizable double-kidney grill on the front. They were targeted at businessmen and other assorted super-rich folks, but not many got to have one- only 603 were ever made! It was not a very well advised financial move, given the preferences of the public at the time, but BMW could afford to take the hit, thanks to the success of the 700 and the New Class series. Ill-advised though it may have been, it certainly lives up to its claims of luxury and power, while being good-looking to boot.
Looking to purchase a classic BMW?
3200s are rare, and the 1964 BMW 3200 CS is by no means an exception! Very few were made, and given the ravages of time, fewer still probably survived to the present. Given this, valuating a find that you suspect to be a 3200 CS is extremely important! Its highly recommended that you hire a professional to thoroughly examine the vehicle for anything that might affect the value, such as damage, non-manufacturer parts or paint, and hidden rust. Theyre likely to look in places you probably would have missed, and no one wants to get their new beautiful 3200 CS home, only to discover later that it has a rust problem in a hard-to-access location, or some internal problem that the seller failed to mention. However, you could avoid this problem altogether if you were to choose the Beverly Hills Car Club as your place to search for the next classic car to sweep you off your feet!
