The E23 7 series always struck me as bit of an oddity in the history of BMW models. This luxury sedan didn’t have as much presence as the E3 “New Six” that preceded it, nor did it have the option of serious size and muscle as the V12 powered E32 750iL that followed it. This has planted the E23 in relative obscurity amongst collectors, as it was never quite as visible as its domestic rival, the Mercedes-Benz W126 S-class. Thus, it is a bit of a bargain in comparison to other period BMW models. This 1984 733i represents the last year for this particular model in the US, succeeded by the 735i the following year before this generation would disappear altogether after the 1987 model year.

1984 BMW 733i
This car was the flagship of the BMW of this era—it is of elegant style and grace.
Among with this era, every available option you could have asked for was made available for the BMW seven series.
This particular car is in extremely great condition, with some expected patina due to its age.
The car has beautiful black exterior paint, with a single red, hand-painted pinstripe. The body panels are very straight, the exterior is stainless, and the chrome trim is superb and crisp. The car retains all the original factory glass excluding the windshield.
The original interior of the car is stunning. The soft black leather is supple with no cracks or blemishes, the seats are firm, and all the foam is original.
The front grill, center grill, and all the plastic is also perfect condition, with no cracks or imperfections.
The car has been in the Pacific Northwest most of its entire life—this makes for a rust-free ride.
There are a few small imperfections as shown in the pictures. The dash has a couple of small cracks up towards the front, as I’ve displayed in the photographs.
The trunk still has its original gray carpet. Included are the original spare tire cover, spare, and a complete toolkit containing every fuse and replacement light bulb from the factory. All the tools are in mint condition, and free of rust.
The car’s original six-cylinder fuel injected motor purrs and runs great. The engine bay is very tidy, with no oil leaks as you can see in the photographs.
The automatic factory transmission shifts flawlessly. The eight weight dual power seats all work perfectly, and all the power windows operate as they should. The power sunroof operates smoothly; it lifts up in the back, and slides open/close.
All of the carpet is original and stain-free, and the vehicle has never been exposed to any smoke. The car has all of its original beautiful hand-made wood, which is also immaculate..
It has all of the original factory service manuals and books.
This cars and very nice original example of a four-door European sedan.
Not to me these cars are left in existence they’re all wrecked rusty or in a wrecking yard.
This cars not a concourse car. But it’s a great driver, so bid with confidence because you’ll enjoy driving this automobile for a weekend toy, or to car shows, you’ll be the envy on your block.
Look closely at all the photos this is a very nice automobile.
They are only original once, bid with confidence. Will be sold to the highest bidder at no reserve.

For a car with over 200,000 miles, this one certainly presents well. I tend to this this car must have seen a repaint in its lifetime, as it looks a bit too unscathed. The leather interior has held up extremely well and even the larger, non-original wheels give the car a fresh look without straying too far from what the designers originally intended. The last E23 we saw change hands was a 1984 745i 5-speed that had 178,000 miles sold for $2,550. As long as there are no hidden surprises, this one should probably settle in the $2,500 to $3,000 range.
