This is a beautiful white 911. Not your regular 911. Besides being a European Model it has all the bells and whistles. Approximently 300hp. Origional BB Rims. New low profile tires.
Race clutch, Dual stainless steele exhaust. Whale tale. 964 cams. Same as the Turbo. 930 body with wider steele fenders. Just put in a New starter and Battery. Car is Garaged
and not driven much. 85,000 origonal miles. Engine had a total rebuild at 62K. Origonally purchase in 1984 for 50k which includes the shipping. The origonal owner wanted the
turbo look but not the turbo during that era because the Turbo’s had allot of engine problems. Ordered the car from Porsche but made Body Modifications at DP Motor Sports in Germany.
before having it shipped to Seattle. Never wrecked and is in excellent condition. Must see and drive to appreciate. Have all the Paperwork on this car to verify. Thanks
This isn’t the first time we’ve posted a DP modified 911, but this one is a bit more attainable at only $20k. And 85k original miles would be good for a regular run-of-the-mill 84 Carrera, let alone a gray market spec car with DP goodies and BB wheels! I like it and the price seems about right too. Hope it finds a good home!
Lower price but still including $1000 of spare/extra parts. This is a classic BMW that really gets attention at any BMW event it is at. The black interior is something most BMW enthusiasts are caught by surprise with. Beautiful condition, great driving car and performance hard to match even in 2009 for a 4 door sedan. Had a very complete PPI performed that is available to inspect when viewing the car.
All engine checks were great, cam chain/rails looked “very good”
Leak down results were 6%-8%-4%-6%-6%-6%
Parts that were flagged have been replaced: fuel filter, coolent hose, lower ball joints, clutch slave cylinder.
I have also replaced the catalytic converter with Magnaflow unit
It now has 140,000 miles on it.
I chose to repost the picture of the driver’s seat because a) it highlights the very rare black leather interior on an e28 M5, and b) it really exemplifies how clean this car is — a real enthusiast owner takes care of the leather too, and you can expect the rest of the car has been cared for the in the same way! I just recently saw this car in person at a local track day event (Chuck wasn’t driving at the event by the way, just shooting pictures), and everyone at the driver’s meeting stopped and turned to see what was making that fantastic M powered sound! This car is really a great example and Chuck is hoping to find an appreciating enthusiast home for it.
I’ve always been a sucker for BMW e30’s. They’re great little enthusiast machines with light weight, willing engines, solid handling, and rear wheel drive. Classic BMW formula for sure! The pick of the litter is the M3 of course, followed by the 325is model. But what if you wanted something in-between and even more rare than the M? Check out this 1983 Hartge H3 on Seattle Craigslist for $10k:
quote from the Craiglist post:
The car is one of the 5 H23s imported through Performance Plus in Florida during the 80s. It is the only Hartge they imported in Burgundrot Metallic. Out of the 5 that came in, I can only guess how many are still around. I hear there is another in San Diego. Scott Epstein formerly of Performance Plus was able to verify that my VIN was in fact one of theirs and also provided me pictures of the car when it was brand new.
The car was ordered with just about all of the Hartge options.
– Hartge cylinder head and valve cover
– Hartge header and exhaust
– Hartge Oil Cooler
– Hartge suspension including sway bars and strut braces
– Hartge long range fuel tank in the trunk
– Hartge steering wheel, shift knob, extra guage cluster
– Hartge Mono Wiper
– Hartge Valance, rear skirts and decklid spoiler
The car has 171,000 miles on it. It runs very well. I wouldn’t hesitate to drive it anywhere. Over the last year I sourced Hartge sideskirts and 15″ wheels from the wonderful BMW community. They aren’t correct for an 83 but they look great. The originally came with BBS RAs and no skirts. The car received a nice complete respray a few months ago as well. Glasurit was used all the way from primer to clear. I also swapped out the very tired tan cloth interior for a beautiful grey cloth interior out of a Baur. I still have the original Recaro seats as well.
Considering clean and well looked after 325is models can fetch something in the neighborhood of $7-9k (if you can find one!) and M3 models often hover in the $20k range, this very rare and exclusive gray market import looks pretty fetching at $10k, even with 170k+ miles. Throw on these 3 piece Hartge rims and really look the business!
I had trouble finding information on the e30 H3 model. Can anyone provide any details about this model in the comments?
You will not find a nicer or lower mileage M Coupe than mine. It has always been garage kept, pampered, and only driven in nice weather. I am the second owner. Both myself and the first owner only ever used it as a weekend, drive-in-the-country toy (as the ultra low mileage suggests). It has never been abused or taken on the track. It has always been dealer serviced (by both myself and the first owner). I have all of the service records as does the national BMW registry if you want your BMW dealer to research the VIN for you. I always warmed the car up to temp before driving.
Since you are looking at this ad, you probably already know how rare the 2001 and 2002 M Coupes are. These were the only 2 years that BMW graced the M Coupe with the 315hp S54 engine… straight out of the (heavier) M3. With a total of only 690 of the 315hp (S54) M Coupes built for the North American market, mine is probably the lowest mileage, most pristine, non-modified example left in the country. Aside from regular dealer service, the only thing I had done to the car was a light window tint (35%) which was done with the best tint material (Formula 1 Pinnacle series), and it was done at Accutint in Bellevue, WA. It also has 4 Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires with less than 4,000 miles on them.
Sex on wheels should be the description for this car. After driving a 2003 e46 M3 with this motor, I’ll bet this smaller and lighter car absolutely flies with the same engine. Clean M Coupes with the earlier S52 motor seem to fall in the 18-22k range. The asking on this one is $24.5k, which sure seems like damn good value to me with the low miles and preferred motor.
Richard contacted me about listing his 83 BMW 320i for sale on the blog, and how could I say no? It has the blessing of Paul from Sports Car Shop who recently told me that the car was “immaculate” after doing the recent service mentioned in the Craigslist post for the black e21:
Selling my great little 1983 e21 because I’m traveling out of the country and feel bad about letting my car sit for a year. I just had a service review done at the Sports Car Shop in Eugene and they found very little wrong with the car. The crank case seal needs replacing along with the read diff seal. The motor mounts could stand to be replaced along with the various engine belts. The car has a long service history and really is in great shape. The engine bay is very clean, with no build up anywhere, the GETRAG 5speed gearbox shifts smoothly and the suspension is firm, with not seepage or leaks. I’m a BMW CCA member and the car won the 2007 BMW ACA Octoberfest People’s Choice award and Best Classic award. Email for more images and contact info. This car is located in Oregon, all transactions must be done in person and in cash.
Flawless Paint (Black/Black)
4 brand new OEM wheels (from BMW Mobile Traditions) with good Turanzas
Paul went so far as to say he was almost considering buying this car himself, but was instead inspired to continue the work on his own classic BMW after seeing Richard’s car! Considering he’s only asking $3200, someone should snap this up cheap!
1999 Porsche 911 Black with Black leather. 6 speed. Only 59k miles. Great color combo. Newer Toyo tires. Lightweight BBS rims, 3k when new. Very Tasteful looking car. Tinted windows. Factory CD. Buying newer Porsche from dealer and not wanting to trade in. Just want a bit more than the dealer buy offer. Very clean! FIRM on the price. Could fetch 3k more in current condition. 60k preventative service done.
It’s no secret the 996 is not one of my favorite Porsche 911’s. That said, I’m a big fan of the Boxster of the same generation; and when the the 996 and Boxster suddenly share the same price point, well let’s be serious, which would you really rather have? My thoughts exactly.
Irish Green has to be one of the best early Porsche 911 or 912 colors, and in today’s post we have one of each. Both are very fetching in their own ways, but the most significant difference is the price. One features an asking of $78,500 and the other $15,000. Read on for the details…
First up is this beautiful 1966 Porsche 911 on the Samba. Billed as a ‘survivor’, it even features the original paint. Early Porsche 911’s in original or restored condition command top dollar, and this example is no exception with it’s $78,500 asking. But if you’ve seen Robert Redford’s Irish Green 911 that he flogs in the movie Spy Game and thought to yourself Oh Hell Yes, this car should turn you on quite a bit.
Quote from the seller’s Samba listing:
This 1966 Porsche 911 is a true survivor. The car has been with one enthusiastic owner, a national PCA concourse judge from new until 2002. The current owner, a collector in the Midwest has kept the car in a climate controlled storage since and maintained it on a regular basis.
This car is fully documented from day one and a rare find indeed. The original irish-green paint is still in remarkably good condition and shows very well.
The engine and all mechanicals have been serviced by only the best technicians for early Porsches and this shows once the car is driven. It still feels like a new car with no rattles or unusual noises anywhere, even on rougher surfaces.
Those early 911 Porsches are very unique in the Porsche family and collectors appreciate their special features such as wooden interior trim, steering wheel and chromed rims.
This particular car has been featured in Jim Schragers book on early 911s and it has to be one of the most original and unmolested examples anywhere.
Our next car is a 1967 Porsche 912 for sale on Craigslist in Portland, Oregon. Of course the 912 is only a four cylinder and it’s motor is based on the outgoing Porsche 356 of the period. Nevertheless, this particular one features a performance built motor that just sings as it easily revs to redline, evidenced in the video below. The seller has documented the extensive work done to this car, but also notes that the paint is not perfect. From the pictures, it looks perfectly acceptable to me as a car that can be enjoyed year round! And for the record, it’s fairly well known that the car actually used in the Spy Game movie is in fact a 912 with 911 engine notes dubbed over. What more do you need to know that this is a super value?!
This classic sports car is ready to take you wherever you want to go: race track, rallies, or touring across the continent. Nearly all of the major mechanical systems have been replaced, upgraded or restored with care in the last two years. New performance engine has 5000 miles on it. Cosmetics such as interior carpets and upholstery are in decent condition, not perfect; my initial focus was to build a reliable and safe sports car for commuting. I would love to keep it, but am forced to sell as I’m moving.
I think most Porsche 912 owners would love to upgrade their old engines, but secretly pray they don’t ever have to face the costs. When it was time to rebuild this one, I decided to spare no expense in building the most reliable high-performance street engine possible. My goal was to upgrade where the originals have proven unreliable or where performance could be improved without any risks to longevity. This restoration/upgrade alone cost well more than $10k. Needless to say, I was planning on keeping the car for years, and am only selling now because I must.
As you can probably gather by now, I think the 912 is definitely the better value; especially at $15k! Of course a 912 is not a substitute for a 911. But it’s also not to be dismissed as anything less than a fantastic sports car. Add the fact that this one has an expensive rebuilt motor assembled with such focus and dedication, you can tell that this car is at least 85% of the experience of a 911 of the same era.
Here’s a very clean looking 1984 Volkswagen GTi for sale on VWVortex. The seller is in Portland and from the looks of it, this car has been in the Northwest most if it’s life with no rust. That interior is nearly spotless too; check out the condition of those seats!
quote from seller’s listing on VWVortex: This is a very stock/original GTI. 133k on the motor (1.8 8v JH) and trans (4k). Modest performance enhancements, upper and lower stress bars, 60/40 cup kit, TT short shift kit, dual outlet exhaust and downpipes with TT cat back, just put in a brand new battery too. AC works and blows cold. Currently stored indoors as it has been for the past 5-6 years.
Interior is as nice as you will find. Redone headliner and seats, uncracked and uncut dash, all trim pieces in place. Rear seat and parcel shelf are awesome. Recently installed a Concord two knob deck with decent dash and rear speakers.
Body has zero rust, sunroof was recently rebuilt, all doors and ignition are keyed the same, rubber is uncracked and fresh. Just had the pinch-welds straightened and undercoated. a new decal kit installed, and had the bumpers powder-coated. Clear-coat is great on the entire car with the exception of the top of the drivers side fender. This is not the cars original fender. I replaced it after it got dented when parked. It was the nicest OG paint I could find.
What’s “wrong” with it:
– Rear sprayer for the wiper doesn’t work.
– That’s it!
I’m not sure what else there is. It’s really a nice example of a stock 25 year old GTI.
I’m asking $4,500 firm.
As a long time MK1 and MK2 VW fan, I’d have to say it’s been since high school since I saw a Rabbit GTi this clean and original. While $4500 may seem like a lot to some, good luck finding one this nice for less.
Update: This post is out of date and the item listed is probably not available any more. Why not take a look at the VW GTI’s and parts that are currently for sale!
Period correct GTi’s and project cars like this one don’t exist because they’ve been driven hard, beaten, and destroyed over the years. So when one comes up that is persevered, I get pretty excited. This is exactly as I would’ve built the car as a senior in high school in 1992 (if I had funds then of course!) Check out this great looking 1976 Rabbit GTi period modified car for sale:
76 VW Rabbit,owned/built by 25+ year VW parts manager. Has been in dry storage for over 20 years.Rare Zender body kit,Koni adjustable front and rear struts,poly suspension bushings,callaway large front and rear sway bars,Hurst short shifter,upper and lower stut braces,VDO gauges,44mm dual sidedraft mikunis,1.7L with large valve ported head,euro spec GTI cam,adjustable cam sprocket,high capacity baffeled oil pan,header w/2″ exhaust,large brakes,front vent windows,rare opening rear Kamei side windows,BBS wheels.New tags,tons more $4500
I recently picked up a stack of old VW & Porsche magazines and this car would easily have been a feature within those pages. And good luck finding some of these parts today like the Mikuni carbs and manifold, Callaway bars, and Zender aero kit. As a complete car, $4500 sounds like a great deal to me and of increasing value in coming years. Have you seen what’s happeningtoGTi prices? I may have to drive up just to take a closer look and re-live my high school years!
