1971 BMW E9 3.0cs
This car was originally delivered to a dealer in Germany on 26 October 1971. It then made its way to the USA prior to 1982 where it spent the rest of its life until we purchased the car late in 2015 and shipped it across to Australia. The car comes with a comprehensive history file of receipts dating back to 1982!
The car was originally delivered in Polaris silver and has had a full colour change to Fjord Blue. The paint job was done may years ago, and has not weathered well. The paint on the bonnet, roof and bonnet has cracked and faded, and the car will need a repaint. There is also some minor rust work that needs to be attended to. The floors and sills are generally solid but there was some rust on the passenger side floor. We ordered new floor panels from Germany which have now been professionally fitted by a reputable panelshop / restoration garage. Apart from this, there are only some minor rust bubbles on the doors and on the boot lid. The shock towers look good as does the spare wheel well.
Mechanically the car seems fine, and the motor starts easily and runs well. This was originally an Automatic but has been converted to 5 speed manual. The car is running on Bilstein shocks all round and near new Michelin tyres on the original 14" alloys. The car is relatively dry underneath, so no major oil leaks. Some of the suspension rubbers look new, so it looks as though there is very little mechanical work to get the car through Rego.
The interior is pretty neat and the car still sports its original carpets in pretty good condition. The dash is in good shape as are the door panels and roof lining. The seats look to be original as well, and there is very little work required to clean up the interior. This is a pretty solid car and with a bit of a clean up will make a great car.
The car can be sold with NSW or ACT RWC, or can be registered before the sale.
