Known History

1973 BMW 3.0CS

5-Speed / AC / Sunroof

 

Introduced in 1971 to replace the 2800CS, the 3.0CS featured a bigger engine and 4 wheel disc brakes.

 

Total production ended in 1975 with 11,063 examples.

 

This car starts with ease, idles smooth, and runs extremely well.

 

The engine was replaced with a rebuilt high performance motor with approximately 225HP coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission.

 

Work was professionally done by London Auto, in VA.

 

Shifting between the gears is smooth and the clutch grabs well.

 

The handling around turns is tight with good brakes and responsive steering.

 

Emergency brake is operational.

 

Presented in blue with a red interior, this BMW is a beautiful example.

 

The chrome around the vehicle shines and looks great but there is some minor pitting.

 

There are a few light dings and surface nicks from occasional use.

 

Rubber around the bumpers is soft, condition is noteworthy.

 

Fitment of hood, trunk, and doors is uniform.

 

Minor exterior flaws include rust bubbling on the driver side of the trunk, passenger side of sunroof, and bottom of driver door as the pictures will best represent.

 

Four additional wheels will be included with the car.

 

Red interior seating is lovely. This car features the desirable manual sunroof, air conditioning, and manual transmission.

 

Gauges are clear and work properly and the blower system is operational.

 

All glass is clear, no scuffs or scratches noticed.

 

The original wood across most of the dash is decent, but there is peeling and some cracks at the ends and on the door panels.

 

There is an aftermarket stereo system with additional speakers.

 

Front door panels match the interior and both sides have some wear.

 

Rear door panels are in better shape with no peeling in the wood.

 

Headliner does not sag and is complete although there is some yellowing from age.

 

This car has power windows however the rears are not currently working. Both front windows are operational however the passenger side needs assistance upon operation.

 

Driver and passenger side floors are solid with no problems noticed.

 

Rockers on both sides for the most part are good with the exception of some rust at the end of the passenger side front where it meets the bottom of the wheel arch.

 

Gas tank and spare tire well area are also solid.

 

All four wheel wells and fender arches look good other than the above stated location.

 

There is no doubt that these early 1970’s BMW 3.0’s are becoming more desirable due to their classic lines and rarity.
