Description

We are glad to present this very nice 1959 BMW 503 Coupe for sale. This 503 coupé was registered in the vendor's grandfather's name from 1959 until 1985 when he sold it to his private pilot who in turn registered the vehicle in the name of his wife. In 1986 the pilot's wife sold the BMW back to the vendor's mother, who gave it to the vendor and his siblings. Since then the car has been registered in either the vendor's name or that of his brother. In the mid-1990s the vendor bought-out his siblings' share in the BMW's ownership, but the car remained registered in his brother's name up until a few years ago.

The car was repainted soon after its acquisition by the vendor's grandfather in 1959 and again circa 1992 with the same original grey cellulose paint. In 2003/2004 the BMW was completely overhauled mechanically by Henning Wendel, who used to work on the 503 when he was employed at Förenade Bil Malmö in the 1950s and '60s.
