BMW’s fuel-injected Grand Tourer:
This BMW three liter Coupe is a factory 3.0 CSi. It was produced by BMW in Bavaria on the 24th of January 1972 and was delivered to BMW dealer Wietis in Lüdenscheid, Germany on the 28th of January. The car was ordered in 060 Polaris over a blue interior and was first registered on the 9th of February 1972. The car has been out of circulation since 1984. Over the past years it was subject to a very extensive restoration. Now in it’s done, tested, detailed and ready for its now owner. 50 years old and as fit as in ’72.
The car was recently professionally restored; From A to Z. Very extensively, professionally and correct. The car was stripped, taken to bare metal and completely and repainted on the outside, inside, trunk and engine-bay. The body was media-blasted and had new metal welded in the floors and sills. All Chrome parts have been re-chromed. Mirror finish bumpers fitted with new rubbers. Also the trim below the windows was re-chromed as well as the triangular side-window-trim. The car even was fitted with a brand new set of new green tinted windows. They were fitted in new window gaskets with a brand new chrome filler trim.
The taillights are in beautiful restored condition and the headlights were replaced. The grilles on the fenders and hood we’re replaced with new. Everything on and around the car is either new or restored and nothing was forgotten.
The engine-bay of this E9 looks spectacular. New Polaris paint on proper bodywork. It has it’s original, matching numbers 3.0L engine which has been rebuilt during restoration. The engine runs lovely: smooth idle, smooth on revs, silent and powerful. Ofcourse all new ignition parts, tested injectors, reworked fuel-system, cooling system with new hoses and rebuilt starter and alternator.
During the restoration the car was put in a rolling cart, the suspension removed. The suspension was all powdercoated and put together with new bushings, re-plated hardware, new Bilstein shocks, bearings and re-done swaybars. It has new brake hoses, rebuilt calipers, new rotors new brakelines, new handbrake cables, rebuilt master cylinder, new brakefluid. It’s too much to mention. The car was properly restored: both cosmetical as technical.
The same goes for the inside. The seats and rear seat have been reupholstered beautifully in navy leather that match the doorpanels. The dashboard shows restored wood as well was restored wood on the doorpanels. The inside of the car was painted as well and on top are insulation mats and new set of carpetting. A brand new headliner was installed and even the sunvisors were reupholstered. A brand new Nardi wheel was installed. The ashtrays have been re-chromed, the doorpanels are the originals. The original center console shows the period correct Blaupunkt radio with matching knobs.
The trunk was restored to perfection. All panels in the trunk have been restored in the correct grey vinyl. Also the covers over the wheel-housings have been replaced. The spare-wheel is restored and has a new tire, the jack is present and it shows a complete set of tools in the trunk!
