1974 E3 Bavaria "daily driver" project car

4-speed manual transmission
4- BBS RC Style 5 “all 4 were spares”
New Pirelli P7’s
New Bilstein “Sport” Front struts
New brake calipers

New fluids: Brake, Oil, Trans, Diff, Coolant.

The car is a great old cruiser, itDOES have rust all over it, but nothing structural. Someone patched the floors and while not the prettiest job- they are solid. Frame rails are solid as well. Worst spot is spare tire well, but there is literally rust / bubbles on every panel. The chrome is VERY NICE on the car!!! I removed the ugly U.S bumpers (not in good shape), but are available if you want them.

The car has electronic ignition, starts fine, idles fine, pulls hard, no smoke, no leaks. The throw out bearing makes noise, but clutch is strong. Car does have a little hesitation at times, but could just be a little water in the gas, fuel filter or carbs adjusted. It's not a misfire though.I just installed 2 new Bilstein “Sport” Front struts (sourced from Ireland Engineering) and new upper strut bearings. Springs front and rear were cut, just to get it down on the ground for the BMW M-pact car show, I had plans to make coilovers, just haven’t had time. Car actually rides and drives ok.

The interior is not terrible, but seats have very little to no padding left (old horse hair padding), the headliner is beautiful, the carpet is very clean, the door panels are all decent except for the passenger side front- looks like it was melted or something?? I think I may have sourced one,I will fwd the winning bidder his info.

ALL of the lights work, the clock works, odometer and all gauges work including tach. We charged the A/C and it worked great, until the belt flew off in the raina fewweeks ago. The wiper motor works fine, but won’t shut off, so I unplug it when it's not raining. The hood cable just broke too, but not a hard fix. I’ve been driving it formost of the summer now- Hoodcan't fly up!!haha

I installed a MOMO Corse suede steering wheel, (comes with the ratty orig bus wheel), a Sony CD player with Aux port, a small subwoofer & Amp for some tunes. The rear speakers were already there (so retro, I had to leave them.)

The tool kit is mostly complete and also comes with a O.E 1975 530i “travel tune up kit” which only really consists of 2 hoses & 2 filters.

Car has a clean PA title (mileage is exempt for the year)and 1 orig. key.

Iwillinclude the orig 14” turbines with tires, I have no use for them.

DISCLAIMER: This is NOT a show car, it is NOT perfect, it DOES have rust, the springs ARE cut, YOUR BUTT WILL BE SORE from no padding in the seatsif you plan to drive it for more than 3 hours home... The car is REALLY cool and my 11 year old son is mad I'm selling it, but again- Ihave too many projects and not enough time or space. I'm sure I'm missing something...

Please ask questionsor COME SEE IT IN PERSON.
