This is your chance to own a first-gen BMW 3 Series, a 1981 BMW 320i, for less than $20k.

This example of an E21 is clad in Hennarot. It’s a shade of red that appears orange under some light. The overall exterior appearance remains relatively true to how it came from the factory.

The tan interior comes with some modern upgrades, including an AM/FM/CD stereo that has a USB input for your iPod. OK, maybe more modern than 1981.

Under the hood, a 1.8-liter M10 inline-four, which BMW used for decades, from 1962 to 1988. It’s paired to a 5-speed manual transmission.
