1977 BMW 630CSi Fjord Blue

Featured here is the successor to the 3.0 CS that I had found last month. This is a very early example of the E24 coupe in original condition. Introduced in 1976, the new coupe was first brought to the U.S. in 1977 with the 3.0 liter straight six. Halfway through 1978, the 633CSi bowed, which means that early 630’s, especially examples this well preserved, are few and far between. This particular example has had three owners and has traveled just shy of 100,000 miles.

The seller states:

Up for sale here is a rare very nice original first year 1977 BMW 630 CSI. In 77 there were about 425 of these special ordered for USA and Automatic. The original owner paid 23000 for it. He lived in New Jersey and was an oil executive. In 1978 it was shipped to Germany for a year then to La Jolla ,California in 1980. The car was sold to to an San Diego investment banker in 1982. He owned till i bought it a year ago. The car has been babied and the engine was rebuilt in last 7000 miles and transmission in last 800 miles. The car is in excellent condition and is matching numbers.

The color is Fjord Blue (Ice Blue) with blue connolly leather. The car has factory ac but it needs refrigerant, (the original refrigerant is not available for purchase in California) … It has the original manual and almost all of its tools… It has the original jack and spare… Also have rare Blaupunkt radio in a box…The alloys are factory original with newer tires… It is an absolute joy to drive and is as clean as the photos show. there is absolutely no rust or evidence of any accidents. It currently registered in California and can be driven anywhere…. The dash has a few small cracks… The leather is near perfect and original, it always had sheepskin covers… car cover comes with purchase….Just a beautiful example of an extremely rare sports car.

While early E24s may fall into the not quite classic category, this particular example, given its condition and pleasing color, seems to be fairly priced at just over $10,000. If the car is as well maintained as it looks, and comes with a full history, this 6er could be a practical classic that could appreciate in value, if properly maintained.
