The 1968 BMW 2000 sedan and the 2000TI are both a part of BMWs relentless New Class line of models, and count themselves as among the final iterations of the New Class sedan, which were rather extremely successful. They were the perfect kind of car, for the perfect time, with consumers in the absolute best position possible for their release. Influenced by the design of the 3200 CS, the design team for the New Class was lead by Wilhelm Hofmeister- the namesake of the now-constant feature of nearly all BMW models since: the Hofmeister Kink. Introduced in the 3200 CS, the kink is more than just an odd-looking bend present after the rearmost side-windows.
It is, at this point, a tradition, an icon, and an integral part of BMW history that isnt likely to go anywhere fast (unless its on a BMW). This, alongside the other hallmark design that stuck with both the 2000 during its production, along with BMW as a whole, in the case of several features, make the 2000 well worth the trouble.

Being a piece of history, the 1968 BMW 2000 production year and the model types it encompassed are still cars, and deserve to be treated as such. If you find a 68 2000 or 2000TI, do it a favor, and get it inspected- theres almost no telling what a proper inspection could turn up (or down), in terms of the value of the vehicle.
