1972 BMW 3.0 CSI 3.0L I6 Engine


Description


Finished in Chamonix White over blue interior, this non-sunroof Euro E9 coupe was sold new in Italy where it remained until it was imported to the US in the early 1990s. A friend of Motorcar Studio acquired this BMW in 2006, then sold it to another mutual friend, the current owner, in 2008, so this is a car we have known for many years. This E9 saw a bare-metal repaint in the correct color in 2005 along with new front seat upholstery at the same time. Paint and body remain in nice condition with no known rust issues (the lack of a sunroof plus living in dry climates has certainly helped this one hold up). The car is currently running genuine Alpina wheels wearing nearly new Pirellis; four original coupe wheels (plus a matching spare) in good condition are included with the sale.

Interior is mostly original and presents nicely; wood, dash, door panels, headliner and rear seat upholstery are all believed to be original. Records indicate new front seat upholstery in 2005 and new carpet in 2007. An attractive Nardi wood wheel and coco mats have been fitted but the interior is otherwise unmodified. A working Becker Europa stereo is installed in the console. All of the gauges, switches, lights, indicators, power windows, door latch and lock mechanisms, etc. are functioning as they should. The back of the rear seat has been signed by most of the car's previous owners both in Italy and the U.S.

Under the hood is the original, numbers-matching M30B30 fuel-injected inline six mated to a four-speed manual gearbox. During current ownership the car has seen a front-end rebuild with new bushings, a full brake job including new lines, a rebuilt distributor, new soft fuel lines to the injectors, a new starter, plus routine maintenance, tune-ups, oil service, etc. Korman springs are currently fitted (with the originals included in a box in the trunk). This E9 feels great to drive -- it's tight and very "put together" without being overly stiff. Very smooth power delivery from the injected six cylinder engine coupled with responsive steering and braking provide a refined and comfortable -- yet engaging -- driving experience.
