i didnt own one so i didnt offer a name...but i reckon you are right
the 1958 morris 1000 i had used semaphores as indicators and i see this A35 has lamps...so it must be a newer model
just did some googling and i think there were only two little ones like this...A30 and A35...both had little lamps
maybe someone will clarify
but it caught my eye...
cheers

Been a while but IIRC the A30 cars all had chrome grilles but the A35s came with an assortment - body colour matched!!!

James Hunt had a van (again, IIRC!), an A35. He reckoned that he could have as much fun driving it at its limits as he could "at work".

My father had an A30 and he told me that that it had a small rear screen and the A35 had a larger one. The car in the picture looks like its got the larger screen.

A real, honest BMW - no sign of even an indicator stalk/switch!!!

Common as muck, Morgans! (There's a dealer at the bottom of the road up to the golf club where I play.)

Hi, Morgans are rare in Germany and have a great image. They participate in rallyes like the HEIDELBERG HISTORIC:

The 4 wheelers use a selection of Ford engines (1600/4, 2000/4 & 3.6[?]/V6) and the 3 wheeler uses an S&S (souped up Harley) Vtwin.

Is that 300 a genuine car or a replica? Looks pretty good, whichever!

Hi, the Mercedes shown above is original. The HMSC event is a high-class event with excellent cars. I expect to be invited to take pics again this year.
