STORY

The BMW 326 Gläser Cabriolet is a classic automobile produced in the 1930s by the German automobile company Bayerische Motoren Werke (BMW). The history of this model is closely linked to the history of BMW and the period before World War II.

The BMW 326 was first introduced at the Berlin Motor Show in 1936. It was an elegant and powerful vehicle that was available in several body styles, including the Gläser Cabriolet.

The body of the 326 Gläser Cabriolet was designed and manufactured by the German coachbuilding company Gläser. The Gläser coachworks were known for their craftsmanship and elegance. The Cabriolet was characterized by its clean lines, rounded fenders and extended rear, giving the car a timeless and appealing design.

Under the hood of the BMW 326 Gläser Cabriolet was an inline six-cylinder engine with a displacement of about 1.9 liters.

Production of the BMW 326 and its convertible model ended with the outbreak of World War II. For this reason, only 25 of these vehicles were built, of which only two have survived to the present day.

PERSONAL STORY

Due to its enormous rarity, this 326 Gläser Cabriolet made it into one of the largest vintage car collections in Europe, but even such collections are restructured from time to time.

This BMW then came to a property in the Salzkammergut and was purchased based on the year of manufacture, 1938, as this is the year of birth of the current owner's mother.
