BMW 327/80, 327/55
2-seater fixed head coupé, 2-seater cabriolet.
Shortened 326 frame with semi-elliptic rather than torsion-bar rear springing and a choice of either a higher-compression 326 unit or the full-house one out of the 328, with 80bhp, hemi-head and triple carburettors. All-synchro 'box optional with the touring motor, standard with the 328 package. Very desirable, but post-war EMW versions (from East Germany) have 'cooking' low compression units under their bonnets.
