1974 BMW 3.0CS

I recently got to play one of my favorite games, in which I finally catch the drivers of cars I often see parked and get to chat them up a little bit. In this case, it’s a silver 3.0CS that is very straight but has clearly been a daily driver since it was born. The owner cautiously espoused his love to the random stranger who had so briskly made a u-turn on his bike, but it was fun to get a little peek into the life of one of these absolutely classic BMWs. Today’s example is significantly nicer than the silver DD, thanks to low mileage, a beautifully restored interior, and the fact that it’s BROWN. I’ve been so pleased to see the rising appreciating for well-done brown sports cars, and this is the perfect example of how far brown can be from beige. All those nice things about it push this E9 into *gasp* modern BMW-price territory. I’d take this in a heartbeat.

The Alpina wheels really tie the room together, and the interior looks like a lovely place to be. That wheel, that leather… oh my. A beautiful example of the E9 in a wonderful color; if you have the cash, your collection will be cooler with this in it.

  1. No doubt it is a beautiful car, even with the US-spec bumpers. They say the market will tell the true value of an item for sale. Hunting Ridge Motors has had this car listed on their website for well over a year, possibly two. That tells me it is priced higher than the market will bear.
