Shark Week gave us all a chance to look back in appreciation at the various iterations of the E24 6 series coupe. These luxury coupes of the late-70s and 80s remain excellent opportunities for buyers to experience a combination of performance and refinement for pretty reasonable costs. Here we have an early example of the series that appears very well maintained and in an unusual color: Topaz Brown. In 1979 the 633CSi replaced the 630CSi as the entry level 6 series in the US market and featured a 3.2 liter engine that produced 181 hp.
Engine: 3.2 liter straight-6

1979 BMW 633 CSi
Up for sale is my 1979 BMW 633 CSi. Simply elegant. Imagine the smell of supple leather and the warm breeze as you drive with the roof and all four windows open. A magnificent touring coupe.
It has just over 71,000 original pampered California miles. This car has been a lifelong “garage queen” which was originally ordered and purchased in Beverly Hills in the extremely rare color of Topasbraun, or, Topaz Brown, which is a bit of a misnomer, given that the color is really a metallic orange. The paint is mostly original, with the exception of the hood and roof which I had expertly matched and painted by the highest quality autobody shop in Rhode Island, AutoPaintRI. For whatever reason the hoods and roofs of these cars (I owned a low mile 1989 model once, same thing) are prone to fading.
This car has four new Michelins mounted on the original 14″ crosslace pattern BMW Mahle alloy wheels.
Its engine compartment is immaculate as you can see.
