1972 BMW 3.0CS

1972 BMW 3.0CS with 85,757 on the odometer.

Starts up very easy. Runs, and drives very good! Engine does not smoke, or leak. This is a 4-speed manual transmission. Almost new tires.

European grey market car (Euro turn signals, kilometer gauge, different reverse back up light, and license plate set-up) with cloth interior, roll up front windows, and no sunroof.

Beautiful white paint job, and nearly immaculate blue cloth interior.

The original color for the car was silver, but it is not showing anywhere obvious. There may be a chip in the trunk where you can find the silver, but that is it. The car is pretty solid, but by no means completely restored. I am sure that there is rust to be repaired if you were to dig. Which is reflected in the price.

Clean California title.

1973 DATSUN 240Z IN BLOOD ORANGE COLOR CODE 918

1973 Datsun 240z in Blood Orange color code 918

  • All original paint (with lots of dings, dents, scratches)
  • California car (receipt / bill of sale when it was sold in 1974 with 21K miles in Long Beach which also corresponds to the two Long Beach Datsun license plate frames included)
  • 16K Miles on the odometer (According to a few receipts the odometer has rolled over!)
  • Original numbers matching engine, and 4-speed transmission
  • Original jack, tools, spare, and manual, original louvers (not in photos) come with the car.
  • Dealer optioned AC (unplugged…)
  • The chassis is rust free underneath, and in all the important places. However it does have some rust on the flat panel when you open the hatch, as well as on the hatch door near the hinge, and on the passenger side front fender. Not bad at all. Iphone placed next to the photos for size comparison. The worst rust area is the actual hatch door. I do have a replacement hatch from another car with or without window but they are different colors (black without window, and white with) and of course won’t be original paint. Here is a link for a replacement panels just in case.
  • The headliner, and driver side sun visor is off but is included with the car.

The story : The car was sitting inside of a garage for 25 years when a retired hobbyist had purchased it, and trailered it to his little shop in Gardena, California. He then spent 5 years slowly working on it to get it into running condition.

 

These are the things he did in the time :
  • Brakes (Turned Rotors & Drums)
  • Clutch (Resurfaced Flywheel)
  • Bridgestone Tires
  • Hoses, belts
  • Headers
  • Rebuilt SU Carburetors
  • urethane Bushings
  • Tokico Struts
  • Riyadh Springs
  • New Battery
  • Fuel Pump
  • Water Pump
  • Rear main seal
  • Freeze plugs including one behind flywheel and head
