1957 BMW 507 Series II Roadster
The chassis no. is 70059 and the engine no. 40072. The 507 was locked in a Philadelphia garage and was originally delivered to Caracas, Venezuela, according to a BMW blog. It was then sold to a Montreal resident, and then purchased by the late father of the current seller in 1979. It was occasionally fired up, but hasn’t been driven since then, according to the auction listing.
The 507 remains in unrestored condition, wearing Pontiac Bright Blue Metallic paint from a 1970’s respray. But Bonhams says the car otherwise is largely original.
