1973 BMW 3.0 CS. ?SURVIVOR? This is an amazing example of the classic E9. This car is stunning with its very rich color combination, Malaga red over tan leather. The look that says elegant and sexy, but sporty??..Timeless. I am not surprised at the attention this car gets, however I?m shocked at how women are drawn to it???



Take another look at that beautiful Malaga paint. It looks to be 90% original with several touchuped up areas. Also - how about that interior?..original headliner, carpet, and possibly leather seats too. Considering the headliner, I would speculate that this is a non-smoker car. Also notice the outstanding chrome with zero pitting or blemishes. This car has obviously been well kept. I have also included pictures of the inner panels, floor and perfect floor insulation. There are no signs of wrecks, rust, and hardly any grease or grime.



The interior includes a Nardi wheel, 3 point seatbelts and factory A/C. The car also is a four speed, and the odometer reads 36583 miles, unfortunately the title now reads box C (unknown miles). Looking at the minimal brake and clutch pedal wear and consideration of the vehicle?s overall condition, this is clearly a low-mile car.



The car has Weber carbs, brand new tires and a great looking CSL front spoiler.



This CS is equally amazing to drive. It runs strong, very tight, shifts and brakes well and no smoking or overheating.



Now a list of the car?s imperfections. Please understand that the car is 37 years old and many of these flaws are very typical of the E9, along with a badge of honor for enduring its age. First the dash wood has a chip missing, the vinyl dash pads have a couple of cracks, the windshield has a slight wiper wear mark, the rear power windows move rather slowly, typical road chips,several scratches, slight door dings, the A/C blows but not cold (I have never bothered to have it looked at), the rear arm rests look to have been recovered (they are slightly a different shade. Lastly, there are areas in the paint that are thin due to fading and or over-buffing.



Money can buy new paint, new interior, sheet metal work, body work and even a 100 point concourse show car, but you can never replace original. I personally would rather see an original survivor in its original glory and patina than any high-end restoration. Don?t miss this opportunity to own this rare, un-molested classic and its obvious investment potential. Take another look at this 37 year old ?survivor?.
