First car in the UK imported by BMW Concessioners, Dover in January 1969 as a LHD model, converted by them to RHD.
Advised by first owner that the car was the 1969 Earls Court show car. Purchased the car in 1988 and kept on the road until 1999. In storage until
2018 when car went to workshop for replacement metal work including new front wings. At present putting car back together and keeping it original apart from fitting Getrag 265 gearbox. Hope to be back on the road 2021. Would be interested in discussing restoration with owners of similar age 2800cs with a view to exchanging information. I am based in Dorset,South coast of UK.
