BMW 1600/1602/1502

2-door 4-seater saloon, Baur convertible, 3-door hatchback.

Smallest-yet BMW to have the company-saving overhead cam engine. Like earlier 1500/1800/2000, it had MacPherson strut front end, semi-trailing arm independent rear, but shorter wheelbase (98.4ins compared to 100.4ins), and smoother, more compact, body style. 85bhp at first, then 105bhp 1600TI from 1967-8. Even after 3-series launch (1602's successor), it continued as plain Jane 1502, with 75bhp, as bottom of BMW range. Convertibles and hatchback styles seldom seen outside Germany. All but 1502 could exceed 100mph, with spritely handling.
