Preserved ‘barn find’ 1959 BMW 507 set for Gooding auction in Florida

A remarkably properly-preserved 1959 BMW 507 roadster, a proverbial “barn-find” that was parked for decades by its primary owner, will be made available by Gooding & Business throughout its Amelia Island Auction on March 4.

With an approximated pre-auction value of $2 million to $2.4 million, the BMW is an exceedingly exceptional unrestored 507, aside from a prolonged-ago repaint in first Black – just 15 of the attractive athletics automobiles have been concluded in black by the factory, out of the 254 produced.

The 507 also has its primary pink-leather-based interior, which also appears to be amazingly intact, and arrives with its factory-geared up equipped hardtop.  

“The 1959 BMW 507 Collection II presented here is a single of the most exciting automotive discoveries in current memory as an unrestored sporting activities vehicle that has been parked for decades in the garage of its authentic owner,” Gooding suggests in its catalog description.
