An often overlooked pre-war gem, the BMW 328 was one of the best racers of its time. Fittingly, this 1939 BMW 328 has itself been raced in a number of events, ranging from wine country classics to a coast-to-coast rally that ran from New York to Disneyland. Its 81 hp, 1,971 cc inline six engine was highly advanced for its day, and a rebuilt, period-correct version sits under the hood, mated to a modern Volvo synchromesh gearbox — although a period-correct gearbox will be included. One of 464 examples built, it's heavily documented, and remains in race-ready condition.
