The amazing vintage BMWs keep coming out of the woodwork this week. Here we have an excellent example of a classic E9 coupe, more commonly referred to as the 3.0 CS. 1974 represents the second to last year of production for the coupe, the E24 633 CSi being the successor.
A few words from the seller:
The 1974 is quite rare being only 1 of 2694 total vehicles produced, with less than 375 imported to U.S. This particular Car spent it’s life in New Jersey, where it was meticulously maintained and cared for by its first owner. It was rarely, if ever driven in inclement conditions. This vehicle was restored inside and out. Updates include a repaint in its original color, and brand new front seat leather. Still some minor work to do for the motivated, but car in great shape now for weekend driving and/or local shows.
The one thing that turns me off about this car is, you guessed it, the crash bumpers. While effective, they are out of balance with the delicate roofline of this car and spoil the looks. Bumpers aside, however, this E9 coupe effectively straddles the line between collectible and modern classic and is a vehicle you could use every day, guilt free.
