The 1968 BMW 1800 was a case study in practiced perfection. Five years into the series production timeframe, the 1800 was continuing to sell extremely well and was essentially a flagship sedan for BMW. Other models were in production at this time, but the 1800 had already surpassed in unit sales the 1500 which had preceded it. A combination of strength and grace (that elusive pairing) set the 1968 BMW 1800 apart from many contemporary competitors and its immediate predecessor within the New Class family of sedans. Beginning in 1963, the 1800 had already established itself in this regard; by 1968, a number of cosmetic changes had served to keep this sporty sedan novel to the consumers eye.
At its core, its engine defines even the most aesthetically pleasing of vehicles. Of course, sedan designs also keep safety, visibility, and interior comfort front of mindall areas in which the 1800 deliveredbut the M10 motor was itself central to the success of BMWs New Class series. While BMW had been tinkering with engine designs throughout the 1960s, the reliability and strength of the comparatively unchanged 1.8-liter single overhead camshaft M10 lent the 1968 BMW 1800 a sense of continuity with earlier models. Changes by this point were largely surface level in nature. A discerning eye will recognize the distinguishing characteristics of a 1968 BMW 1800, as will the eye of a talented and reputable classic car dealer.
