Evaluation: One of 253 BMW 507s built. Offered from nearly 30-year single ownership. Second-series car with larger engine and more interior room, but does not have the desirable disc brakes. Received restoration work in the late 1980s and has been repainted from the original silver blue to the current black. Possibly received a factory replacement engine in period, but unconfirmed. Aged but presentable, possibly original interior. Clean engine bay. No major paint or body flaws noted or visible, just light general age. The engine question and the color change are certainly things to consider on this car, but any 507 is a striking automobile and this one would likely make a great casual driver or tour car.
Bottom Line: The 507 just might be the best-looking production BMW ever. It’s certainly the most valuable. And it’s the only one to routinely bring a seven-figure price. Even drivers are in the $2M range these days, so even given this one’s age and aforementioned issues, the result was perfectly fair.
