By the latter half of the 1960s, BMW had definitively outrun a lackluster reputation that had plagued it throughout the preceding decade. The New Class sedans, beginning with the 1500 in 1961, had achieved commercial success and positive evaluation across the board. Essential to this continued success was the brilliantly conceptualized and manufactured 1800 series, which reliably improved upon previous iterations year over year. The 1967 BMW 1800 was no exception in this regard, as it was released with all of the engine strength (90 horsepower) and steady handling the driving public had come to expect of it, but featured a modernized and generally upgraded interior.
Above all, the 1967 BMW 1800 was essentially a continuation of the upward trend BMW had established with its first generation of New Class sedans. It provided drivers with the throaty, gutsy 1.8-liter M10 engine so openly favored by the automotive world, but offered improvements where they were intuitively necessary and minor changes in areas that did nothing to alter the vehicles power and handling. By that late in the 1960s, the New Class design and manufacturing teams had worked out a sustainable pattern of incremental enhancements that allowed for the 1967 BMW 1800 to enjoy both familiarity and novelty. And the modern buyer may also enjoy these Neue Klasse attributes, especially if they trust their consultation and automobile vetting to an excellent dealership team.
