The E9 coupe, as it is known today by its internal designation, has become a highly sought after car that is essentially the post-war standard for an understatedly elegant coupe. Karmann built the body shells for BMW and the car is essentially one of the prettiest ways to creatively trap moisture ever devised. Rust-free and well-restored examples are rare, however this E9 Coupe is one of those rust-free examples. This car drives and sounds beautifully. It is very tight. Mechanical Updates over the past 5 years include; New stainless steel exhaust and headers, rebuilt brakes all around, new struts/shocks, complete full engine rebuild from Korman Autoworks, a very reputable BMW high performance engine shop. This M30 also has a Schrick cam and triple Weber carburetors. There has only been 1000 miles put on the car since the rebuild. The underbody is in excellent condition with no rot or visible rust; however, it should be noted the underside was treated with POR15, a leading rust inhibitor coating. Additional performance upgrades from the current owner include a high performance Pertronix electronic distributor and coil, halo headlights with LED beams. A new heavy-duty radiator was recently installed. The car sounds amazing going down the road with a deep European muscle car sound. it is estimated this BMW is pushing 200+ hp due to its performance upgrades. Cosmetic Updates over the past 5 years include: Complete paint job, new weatherstripping, new front and rear leather seats, carpets, new seat belts, new blue-tooth stereo with handsfree mic, new steering wheel and shift knob. Additionally, the wood trim on the dash and door panels was in rough shape and the current owner decided to sand the wood down, repair the structure of the trim and cover with carbon fiber. It looks excellent. The power windows all work but very typical slow like all other E9s. Bumpers have converted to European bumpers. Recent Updates: New Tires, Repair of door locks so car can lock on the same key, Realignment of rear bumper, Manual Choke Installed, Hood Prop Installed. Hagerty valuations show these cars are appreciating rapidly and this one makes for a great investment. Some things should be noted: This car is mostly restored. It can be driven as is and drives tight and great. There are the items that have been unfinished on the car that once completed will increase the value significantly. It is not uncommon for a restored E9 to sell well over $100,000 today. This car is a great investment for the right buyer. Here is the list: 1) Body, there is small crack in the paint on the hood from the wind slamming the hood shut with a jump pack laying inside the engine compartment. This caused a small ding and crack in the paint, it is hardly noticeable, there is a quarter size dent in the front lower drivers side fender which a paintless dent repair could be made effectively, there is a paint chip that was touched up around the rear trunk emblem. 2) The A/C does not function right now as it still needs to be rebuilt. The sale will come with the functioning factory compressor. We are told it is between $3-6K to complete this task, 3) The headliner is in ok condition and the dash pad was replaced but could fit better, but to make the interior show worthy, one might want to replace these items 4) headlights need to be better aligned, these are currently halo lights. They plug into the factory headlight harness so can easily be converted back to OEM factory 5 lights, 5) the bumpers are EURO conversions. The rear valence (under rear bumper) still has US cut outs for US bumpers. Hidden pretty well from bumper, but buyer should be aware these are there.
