In yesterday's post we learned that part of the historic significance of the legendary 1937 BMW 328 Roadster was that the car's engineers (who had previously worked on post WWI airplane technology) had designed the would-be touring vehicle with unforeseen lightweight chassis that reportedly weighed roughly 800 kilograms. This statistic, which allowed for maximum performance on less petrol, helped the 328 become one of the hottest race vehicles of its time period.
And for today's video clip, I found a very recent clip (from just two days ago!) of what the 328 Roadster's body shell looks like after being stripped of its wood in the preparation process of its metal fabrication for vehicle restoration. The narrator also explains why they are bringing in new antique ash lumber to rebuild the shell. Plus, they also get into the lead that needed to be removed from the 328 skeleton, how other pieces of the vehicle were put into the shell, and how the attributes of this classic car make for a great race car.
