STORY

The BMW 321 was a car model produced by Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW) from 1938 to 1941 and again after World War II, from 1945 to 1950. The vehicle was part of BMW's 300 series and represented a further development of the previous models, in particular the BMW 320.

  

The BMW 321 was the successor to the BMW 320 and part of a series of sedans produced by BMW in the late 1930s. The design of the 321 was an evolution of the previous model, but there were some improvements based on customer feedback and technological advances.

Production of the BMW 321 began in 1938, but with the outbreak of World War II in 1939, many car manufacturers in Germany were converted to the production of military equipment. This meant that civilian car production was severely curtailed, and the BMW 321 was only produced in limited numbers.

After World War II, production at BMW resumed and the BMW 321 enjoyed a brief renaissance. However, production numbers were limited and post-war economic conditions were difficult.

PERSONAL STORY

It pays to be a good boss.
This BMW was lovingly restored over many years by the staff of an entrepreneur and was given to him as a gift for a special birthday.


This BMW was driven a lot, but because the order situation was so good and there was no time for leisurely drives due to all the work, this BMW was put on display in our museum.
