1988 BMW M6 Coupe
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
This 1988 BMW M6 is finished in black over gray leather and is powered by a 3.5-liter inline-six mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Equipment includes Bilstein shocks, a Dinan front strut tower brace, Dinan engine management software, a sunroof, 16 basketweave wheels, power-adjustable front sport seats, air conditioning, and a factory AM/FM cassette stereo. The car previously spent time in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and California before being acquired by the seller on BaT in March 2022. Subsequent work included the repair of the air conditioning system and speedometer as well as the replacement of the clutch, crank position sensors, oxygen sensor, and more as detailed below. This E24 M6 is now offered with manufacturers literature, service records, a tool kit, shop manuals, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Florida title in the sellers name.
The 1988 M6 featured revised bumper covers with body-color corner trim as well as ellipsoid headlights. This example was finished in Schwarz (086) from the factory and was repainted under prior ownership, reportedly following the completion of corrosion repair around the lower sections of the rear fenders and left taillight. The kidney grilles, taillight assemblies, exterior trim, and window seals are also said to have been replaced at that time. Equipment includes a power sunroof, a front air dam, a rear lip spoiler, and bright window trim. The passenger door VIN sticker is missing.
Basketweave 16 wheels are mounted with 225/50 Continental ExtremeContact tires. The rear self-leveling suspension was removed, the steering box was reinforced, and Bilstein shocks were fitted under prior ownership. Braking is handled by power-assisted four-wheel discs.
The cabin features seating surfaces upholstered in gray leather along with a two-tone dashboard and door panels. Amenities include power-adjustable front sport seats with memory functions, power windows, air conditioning with rear climate controls, Dinan-branded front floor mats, cruise control, a rear sunshade, and a factory AM/FM cassette stereo. The air conditioning system was repaired under current ownership.
A four-spoke airbag-equipped steering wheel fronts a 170-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and a six-digit odometer showing 110k miles, approximately 1k of which were added by the seller. The odometer was repaired under prior ownership and the speedometer was repaired in 2022.
The 3.5-liter S38 inline-six is said to have been fitted with Dinan engine management software under previous ownership, and it was resealed in January 2018 when the timing chain and piston rings were also replaced. A Dinan front strut tower brace has also been added to the engine bay. Work under current ownership included repair of the power steering pump and replacement of the crank position sensors, oxygen sensor, voltage regulator, blower motor regulator, coolant temperature sensor, auxiliary fan switch, and accessory drive belt.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The clutch, pressure plate, and pilot bearing were replaced under current ownership along with the shifter bushings and transmission fluid.
Manufacturers literature is included in the sale along with service records, a tool kit, shop manuals, and spare parts.
