When James P. forwarded this car to me, I was pretty sure I had already posted it, but going into the Hartge archives I couldn’t find it. Now I realize I posted it on my personal blog before I had ever started GCFSB. It’s been for sale by BimmerBrothers since late 2007 at least, and what’s interesting is that it was listed then for under $9k. Maybe it’s seen some love since then and thus the higher asking now at $10884. See the listing that is currently on Craigslist SF Bay:
quote from seller’s listing:
I am offering for an appreciating new owner this super rare and unique 1984 BMW Hartge H7S 5 Speed
IMMACULATE rust-free superbly-maintained example one of three believed in existence.
Hartge engine, suspension, wheels, stripes, shift knob and wheels. MUST SEE!
Doing a quick search Hartge H7S brings up hits on what I believe to be the same car that date all the way back to 2004 and 2007, which it suggests it has changed hands a few times. One of the previous owners chimes in on this thread on mye28.com. From what I can tell, it was originally being traded for under $5k and then each owner has added some work of some kind to make it a little better. What do you think — good enough to warrant $10k?
