One of the best, original E21 3-series on the market:
What a beautiful and original BMW E21 3-series. The E21 3-series came to market from 1975 on and it was Paul Bracq’s seconddesign for BMW after the E12 5-series. What a great, modern car with great packaging for 1975. This is a series II E21 with the different taillights, mirrors and dashboard. It’s the 320 – The carburated 2,0 liter 6-cylinder – running so smooth.
This BMW 320 was produced by BMW in Bavaria in late ’81 and built for the Italian market. Then delivered to BMW of Italy in Palazzolo and sent to the dealer – BMW Strenghetto Jolao in Trento, Northern Italy. Sold new to Mr. Bottamedi who bought his 3-series in 086 Schwarz (Black) over a Beige cloth interior. First registered on the 22nd of January 1982.
Recently acquired by us. A very high quality E21 3-series. The car shows no rust, has never been welded and shows a very clean and original undercarriage.. Very unique to see floors this clean and original.
The body wears all original bodypanels and it’s very straight with nice panelgaps. The chrome around the windows is in excellent condition and have a great shine. The factory black paint has a great depth and shine and appears in beautiful condition. We have measured the paint and it shows completely original (all around 100 microns) apart from the rear quarterpanel which shows 160 microns). The chrome bumpers are in excellent original condition with a great shine in the chrome. The mouldings on the doors as well as the seals are in good condition. This car has been garage kept for a long long time.
The trunk is very clean and original. The original set of tools is present as well as the original spare wheel including jack and tool.
Then the engine bay. We hardly see BMW E21 3-series this original. Its shows all original paint in the engine bay and no rust. The original decals are present: Yes, this is what a rust-free, 73.000 kilometers car should look like. The 2,0L M20 engine is the original unit – matching numbers. The engine starts up nicely and runs smooth. The troublesome Solex carburator has been replaced with a ‘set and forget’ Weber carburatur with manual choke – runs and pulls beautiful. The 4-speed transmission shifts with great ease and the differential is silent. We’ve performed a major service with timing belt so it’s ready for the coming years. We’ve installed H&R springs and sits on Alpina-look wheels with new Hankook tires.
The interior: Beige velours. Here it’s 100% original. Carpets and headliner in excellent condition. Seats in beige velours velours that sit excellent. The beautiful typical BMW cockpit-like dashboard. The doorpanels look excellent and it shows the original BMW floormats.
The car really drives like a time capsule. The inline-six runs silently and the car feels tight and is silent. The original servicebook is present and contains all service-stamps from the selling dealer (BMW Strenghetto). The mileage is original and documented. It also comes with receipts and ownership information as well as 2 sets of keys.
We’ve performed a major service that includes:
- Timing Belt + Tensioner
