Over the last few weeks, we have had three BMW E9 3.0CS’s in the shop. A silver CSi was here for service, a green CS just sold and this blue car is still looking for a new home. This is a very clean CA car with all records from new. It has all 3 sets of keys which is a blessing as they are so hard to duplicate.
The car has some tasteful modifications like Weber Carbs, tube headers and Alpina wheels. The interior is extremely nice and appears to be original but I can’t tell for sure if its been re-upholstered. The carpeting is original brown loop and the trunk lid mounted took kit is complete and nearly perfect.
Having lived in dry climates, this car is extremely solid. The front fenders were repainted but the rest of the paint is faded original and considering the age, its really nice. BMW E9′s were built by Karmann Coachworks and had a tendency to rust away very quickly. There is a cavity in the front fender area that fills with debris and moisture causing massive structural damage to the car. Using a mirror and flashlight, this area is solid on the car. It appears that other problem areas are clean and solid except for some rust caused by abrasion from the wheels on the rocker panel covers.
