TEXT FROM EBAY

With hesitation I'm selling my 1970 BMW 2800CS E9 coupe. I looked long and hard before finding this car. But the truth is I have way too many other projects waiting in line and I really don't know when I'll get around to getting to this one.
The car runs and drives. The numbers matching engine sounds great and does not make any ticks or knocks or anything of the sort. the original carbs (included with the car) have been replaced with webers. the car has not been driven much in the last 15 years so they could use a cleaning. the pedal feels a little weird and i traced it to a couple of small bushings that need to be replaced by the firewall behind the brake booster. the car originally had a/c and most of it is still there but it is not working and i have not looked into why.
The 4 speed transmission shifts fine. I'm sure a new set of shifter bushings would clean it up but it does work as is. the LSD works great.
I rebuilt the front calipers and put all new rear brakes. it still needs a good bleeding though.
The exterior of the car looks great as you can see in the pics. by no means is it perfect but it is nice for a driver. such beautiful lines. the car used to be blue and was painted white by the previous owner. it could use new door seals.
the interior looks pretty nice also. the dash has some cracks, the wood veneer needs a little love, the rear seat arm rest has some cracks on the top part. the rear power windows need to be gone through, i bought new switches for it but have not tried to anything with them. there is no radio. the shifter console needs a little attention.
unfortunately these cars are infamous for rust. this one is not too bad. underneath is neither beautiful nor horrendous. it does have surface rust. looks like most of it can be cleaned off with a wire brush and sprayed with undercoating. there was a small patch in the driver side floor. you may find a spot here or there that may need attention but for the most part it is pretty solid.
so as you can see, this car needs lots of little things. it is still a gorgeous car with the most beautiful lines ever to come out of Munich. it will not take much to be a daily driver.
Car is in Dania Beach, FL just 5 minutes south of the Fort Lauderdale airport.
