We have found many interesting and mysterious projects stashed in people’s barns, but this one could be the most mysterious we’ve ever found. The seller claims this car is a 1934 BMW 315 Roadster, which is a rare machine, and even more incredible is the body, which they believe to be from one of the extremely rare 328s. If you’re up for a good investigation it is being offered by SignificantCars.com or here on eBay.
This car is pieced together using parts from various BMWs. The chassis is claimed to be a 1934 BMW 315 Roadster, the engine is from a 1936 315, and the body is claimed to be a 328. The 315 was powered by BMW’s 1.5 liter straight six producing 34 hp. The 315 evolved into the sporty 328, which is one of the most sought after pre-war BMWs. If the body is really a 328 shell it could be worth a small fortune alone, as there were only 464 of these cars ever built.
This car is going to take a lot of investigation and research to figure out exactly what it really is. It’s going to be a challenge deciding what to do with this car, as both the 315 and the 328 are rare cars. Most would agree that a real 328 should be restored to as original condition as possible, but then again this may not be a real 328.
Complete and original BMWs from this era tend to sell for considerable money, but as you can see this car is neither complete nor original. However, this project is still worth something to the right buyer. Getting this car running is going to be an expensive and challenging project, but the end product would be worth it. We have tried to verify the seller’s claims, but without identification numbers or seeing the car in person we have been unable to do so. If anyone knows more about this car, please share!
