 BMW assembled in Rhodesia

History          
Year
During the 1970s various BMW models were assembled at the Willowvale plant in Salisbury, Rhodesia. These were the 1800 Cheetah, 2000 Cheetah (was there a 1600?), 2500, 2800 (3.0s ?), 1804, 2004 and 2000. The 2000 was often referred to as the "German 2000" in Rhodesia, to distinguish it from the Cheetah. Was this "German 2000" ever produced at the Rosslyn plant and sold in South Africa? The Cheetah was unique to Rhodesia, these models were called 1800SA and 2000SA in South Africa. They were never sold as BMW in Europe (or anywhere else) as they were a modified Glas 1700, Glas having been taken over by BMW.
