1973 BMW 3.0 CS in Granatrot Metallic with Black Leather
1974 BMW 3.0CS finished in Granatrot Metallic over a black leather interior and powered by a fuel-injected 3.5-liter inline-six paired to a Getrag 5-speed gearbox. It was imported to the US by Max Hoffman and previously registered in California and Washington state. The car recently completed an 18-month long refurbishment. In addition to the drivetrain swap, the car now benefits from Euro bumpers, as well as a reconditioned driveline, suspension, and brakes. Other features include a set of recovered leather seats, a Sport leather steering wheel, stainless exhaust, and Alpina-style alloy wheels. Approximately 5,000 miles have been added since the work was completed. This E9 is now being offered with ten years of service records and free and clear ownership documentation.
Additional modifications include a set of Michelin Pilot Exaltos. Upgrades to the brake system include a Tii brake booster, new stainless hard lines, and a rebuilt rear proportioning valve from La Jolla BMW. All four brake calipers have also been rebuilt and reinstalled with new pads.
The Karmann-built body was refinished a few years ago. Slim European-style stainless steel bumpers from Coupe King have replaced the 5 MPH impact bumpers installed specifically for the US-market in 1974.
Alpina-style wheels come wrapped in a set of Michelin Pilot Exaltos. Upgrades to the brake system include a Tii brake booster, new stainless hard lines, and a rebuilt rear proportioning valve from La Jolla BMW. All four brake calipers have also been rebuilt and reinstalled with new pads.
The front seats have been recovered in black leather and fitted with re-chromed hinges. New matching leather upholstery has also been added to the rear bench seat parcel shelf. The A/C system benefits from a new compressor and brackets, as well as a new electric condenser fan.
This is a truly exceptional example that will easily exceed expectations. It is fully sorted and has just had a full paint correction.
