BMW 1600-2 Converted Into an El Camino Truck

Seeing a BMW “truck” is a strange sight and we first showed you guys the BMW El Camino 330i some time ago. Well, here is another BMW truck and this one looks a bit more “natural”, possibly because of the old school design. This custom built truck is based on the 1971 BMW 1600-2 series and built by Ottowerks, a San Francisco based company.

The BMW ‘New Class’ (Neue Klasse) series of cars is landmark vehicle for the automaker as it paved way for models such as the 1500, 1800, 2002, and the 3-Series. The company was going for a “something different” look, and that’s exactly what we got here. This small work truck is now powered by a six-cylinder motor (M20b25) which was used to power the E30, E34, and Z1 producing a 169 horsepower.

The vehicle is up for sale on eBay and the exact list of modifications can be found on there.

Hi Guys, I’d like to take the time to thank you for reading some info about me. My mission here as a writer at Unfinished man, is to entertain and inform on all things, from cars and gadgets, to reviews and life. I have a Bachelor in business but never really enjoyed school. I’d much prefer to spend time working on Unfinished Man than spending my days working long hours in some stuffy office. I love green tea and pistachios and my favourite fruit is pomegranate (weird I know). I hate the water but love nature, especially the nature here in my adopted country of Canada.
