1973 BMW 3-Series Description

1973 BMW 3.0 CSI

A very rare Euro-spec CSI for restoration. This is a grey-market E9 first delivered to Verona, Italy in 1973. Brought to California in the late 70's and has a B.A.R. sticker. I have used this car as a daily driver since 2005.

Features smaller, European only, chrome bumpers and metric gauges. Baikel blue with black and tan cloth interior, now covered with black cloth covers. Bosch D-Jetronic fuel injection.

Engine has been modified with a slightly later M30 3.5 liter block (@ 210 hp, considerably more power than the original 177 hp) while retaining it's original cylinder head and induction gear. Tubular exhaust header. 3 piece 16" alloy rims are vintage mid 70's Hardy & Beck after market.

All glass in good shape. All four window motors work. Instruments and air controls are in German. Vintage Blaupunkt radio.

Isolated areas of rust, non-structural (see photos). Has been sitting for over a year and is currently not running. (possibly fuel injection glitch).

Look at the photos, ask questions, come and see it! 100 miles north of Los Angeles. More photos available.
