The last remaining 1967 GT 1600 had a triumphant end to 2018. The vocational training team at the BMW Dingolfing plant meticulously reinstated the BMW 1600 GT convertible in a multi-year project supervised by their mentors. This four-seater car, coated in silver, boasts a rich history of changing ownership multiple times before returning to its original creator.

This vehicle harks back to a pivotal era in BMW’s journey, marking the shift from a niche automaker to a mass-producer that achieved significant growth and dominance in its segment.

From the design crafted by Italian body designer Pietro Frua, only two prototypes of the 1600 GT convertible were ever constructed. Both vehicles rolled off the Dingolfing, Bavaria assembly line in early 1967. Unfortunately, BMW’s initial prototype met its demise due to accident damage during a test run, cutting short its brief existence.

The outcome of this restoration venture drew admiration from onlookers. Benjamin Voss from BMW Group Classic expressed, “Receiving such a unique car is truly delightful. We are ecstatic! This vehicle will hold a special place in our esteemed collection.”

The completed project was met with enthusiasm, as one of the training instructors remarked, “Undertakings like these offer a refreshing change for the apprentices at Plant Dingolfing. The enthusiasm of our new apprentices, especially first-year students, is palpable for projects of this nature.”
