Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1973 BMW E9 3.0CS coupe. This 3.0 is a three-owner car with 87,000 original miles; the car has been in the personal collection of our managing partner, Nick Huston, for nearly five years and is offered for sale publicly for the first time since it was new.
A long-term North Carolina car, the second owner purchased it from a friend in 1985 with around 70,000 miles. He added another 15,000 during his 25 year ownership. The current owner, Nick, has driven it approximately 3,000 miles and used it for touring events and the occasional show.
This is a largely unrestored "survivor" -- it was repainted once in the mid 1980s in correct Fjord Blue to a nice standard and the leather and wood were refinished in the mid 2000s, but it retains its original paint in the door jambs and engine compartment as well as original trim, door cards, headliner, carpet and dash. This coupe has never been taken apart or had any panels replaced and remains in beautiful condition. It is not detailed to a concours standard as it has been driven, but it certainly could be.
Service during the current ownership has included complete A/C system overhaul, new factory exhaust, carburetor rebuild, tune up items, electronic ignition and recent Michelin tires on factory alloy wheels. It is completely stock except for Weber carburetors, modern head unit, Nardi wheel, period Cibie headlights and a rotary A/C compressor. A lovely car to drive, it has been on several recent extended road trips including trips from Atlanta to Amelia Island for the Concours d'Elegance and an appearance at “The Vintage” in Asheville. The original, numbers-matching 3.0 liter M30 engine runs well and is mated to a four-speed manual transmission -- this has proven to be a reliable and easy-to-service combination. Tools, good service records, matching spare, original keys and several new spare parts are included.
