Early 3.0 CSi

This BMW ‘three liter’ Coupe is a factory 3.0 CSi. It is the 75th produced by 3.0 CSi. Produced by BMW in Bavaria on the 18th of August 1971 and delivered to BMW of Italia in Palazzolo, northern Italy on the 24th of August that year. The car served a BMW Press car for Italy. It was sold to its first owner on the 12th of June 1972.

The car was ordered in 040 Nachtblau Metallic (Midnight Blue). There is a great deal of history with the car. A binder with invoices, history and the original manuals and service book. Sold new to Mr. Bruschi from Verona via BMW Italia in June of 1972 on numberplate VR308428. Service records and insurance of Mr. Bruschi’s ownership are present and show he owned the car up to 2011.The servicebook shows servicing by the selling dealer.

The condition is fantastic. A beautiful body that hasnt seen any welding or bodywork. The car has had a complete repaint in the factory shade in recent years – done to a very high standard. The paint is beautiful, the body is super straight and the panelgaps are one of the best. This car was never in a bad condition and it shows everywhere. Original floors, a-pillars, a non restored body. Also the trim on and around is in a beautiful condition. Great chrome bumpers, deep black grilles, the headlights have been replaced. The tailights are in beautiful condition. The car has factory tinted glass which sits in fresh seals and trim. The chrome grilles on the hood and fenders are brand new, the roundels are new, the blinkers are new, the mirrors are new. Everything on and around the car is in very good orginal condition or replaced with new – nothing left forgotten.

The engine-bay was painted too and looks beautiful. 
Since the body is and was so original the car is beautifully straight and the typical bend/fold in the sides are there nicely. It wears original doors and fenders which contributes to a nice and straight car. The engine-bay of this E9 looks spectacular. It’s matching numbers 3.0 liter injection engine runs excellent. Smooth idle, smooth on revs, silent and powerful. Everything around the engine has been reworked too.

The car sits on lowered suspension and drives lovely. Nice, firm shocks for a proper Grand Touring driving experience. The wheels are Alpina style 7×14″ with new centercaps, lugnuts and Vredestein Sprint Classic tyres. The 4-speed shifts lovely. Its very rare to see an E9 3.0 CSi that has never been welded. Even the factory coating on the floors is still visible.

On the inside a beautifully reupholstered interior: The seats have been redone in beautiful Marine blue genuine leather. The rear buckets we’re done too as well as all 4 doorpanels. The carpets have been replaced with correct anthracite loop-style material. The dashboard hasn’t been restored and shows the original vinyl and wood. 

The trunk shows it’s original grey paneling. Both over the wheelhousings as the flat panels over the tank and spare wheel. The toolset in the trunk is complete! The fueltank has been powdercoated and sealed.
