BMW - BMW 1800 and 2000

The Neue Klasse range of BMW's, under the guidance of Fritz Fiedler, were built between 1962 and 1977 and went on to be the backbone of the BMW company after its earlier finacial problems, with the realisation that BMW needed a mid range capacity car that fell between their large V8 and and small microcars. The first of these BMW's was a 1500 saloon enlarged to 1600 cc in 1964, dealt with elsewehre on our website. Meanwhile the BMW 1800 was released at the end of 1963, using a bored and stroked version of the earlier engine which was in production from 1963 to 1971 which were the BMW1800 and BMW1800i, the latter having various tuning goodies including higher compression. 

Between 1965 and 1969 the BMW 2000C and 2000CS, with bodywork design by Karmann, replaced BMW's larger V8 model. These BMW 2000C and 2000CS  coupes led directly to the later BMW E9 series. Finally for interest, the 2 litre engine of the 2000C and 2000CS was then also used in the 4 door saloon as the 2000Ti, and later on a fuel injected 2000Tii 

Tyre size for all BMW 1800 and 2000 models was 165R14 tyre size as standard from the factory, and Blockley produces this steel belt construction period correct high speed rated 165HR14 size - see below for full details. For those wanting a wider tyre of the same diameter we also make the high speed rated 185/70VR14 size - again, details below:
