This 1967 BMW 2000 tilux is a European market example that was imported to the US prior to the current owner’s acquisition in 2020. Finished in silver over two-tone red and black vinyl upholstery, the car is powered by a replacement fuel-injected 2.0L inline-four mated to a dog-leg five-speed manual transmission and a 4:10 “long-neck” rear differential. Tilux models featured interior wood trim, clock and tachometer, wood steering wheel, Blaupunkt AM/FM radio, center console, optional upholstery, and sway bars. Service during current ownership is said to have involved a new clutch kit, resurfacing the flywheel, replacing the fuel lines, flushing the radiator, and changing the fluids. This Neue Klasse is now offered in California by the seller on behalf of the owner with a clean Montana title in the name of the owner’s LLC.

Designed by Wilhelm Hofmeister, the Neue Klasse was introduced in 1961 and was available in sedan and coupe body styles. This four-door example was finished from the factory in Polaris Neu Metallic and is said to have been repainted in 2020. Exterior equipment includes a left-side mirror, chrome bumpers with overriders, quarter vent windows, and polished trim. The seller states that new front grills, turn signals, side window trim, and front and rear windscreen gaskets were installed since 2020. The front left-side window is scratched, dings are visible on the front bumper, and pitting is noted on the rear bumper and door handles. The California license plate is not included in the sale and the included Montana license plate can be seen in the gallery below.

Steel 14″ wheels wear BMW-branded covers and beauty rings and are mounted with 195/70 Michelin Defender tires. An older, non-matching spare is housed beneath the trunk compartment. The car rides on a fully independent suspension, and stopping power is provided by front discs and rear drums. The steering, control arm, and sway bar bushings were recently replaced, according to the seller.

The cabin features front bucket seats and a rear bench trimmed in two-tone red and black vinyl accompanied by matching door panels. Woodgrain trim adorns the dashboard, doors, and shifter. Additional appointments include a center console, a rear folding armrest, a Blaupunkt AM/FM push-button radio, and CocoMats floor mats. The seller notes cracks on the dashboard, and wear is visible on the carpets and heater controls. The weather stripping around the doors and windows were reportedly replaced under current ownership. Additional work is said to have included a replacement headliner, welting, and recovering the rear parcel shelf.

A wood-rimmed steering wheel fronts VDO instrumentation consisting of a 200 km/h speedometer, an 8k tachometer, a clock, and a combination gauge. The five-digit odometer shows 31k kilometers (~19k miles), approximately 1k of which were added under current ownership.

The replacement fuel-injected 2.0L M10 inline-four was sourced from a 2002tii under previous ownership and features 1973-model aluminum intake runners. The seller states that service performed in preparation for the sale involved flushing the radiator, changing the fluids, and replacing the fuel lines, fuel filter, and spark plugs and wires.

The block is stamped “2762731” which corresponds to a 2002tii engine produced in 1972.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a dog-leg five-speed manual transmission and a 4:10 long-neck differential. The seller also reportedly resurfaced the flywheel and installed a new clutch, pressure plate, , and throw-out bearing. The axle boots and rear differential fluid were replaced in preparation for the sale. An Abarth exhaust tip has been installed, and additional underside images are presented below.
