BMW 3-SERIES (six cylinder)

2-door 4/5-seater saloon.

After only two years, 3-Series freshened up with new M60-type 'small' six, in two engine sizes - 320-6 with carbs/122bhp, 323i with fuel injected 2.3-litres and 143bhp, the latter a real tail-sliding - some reckon dangerously so in the wet - road-burner. Five speed gearbox later in life on 323i in some markets. Like other 3-Series models, replaced by new style for 1983. Baur convertibles also built, not sold here.
