    1982 BMW 323i BAUR (RARE)

    This is a RARE E21 323i Baur cabrio. These cars weren't imported in the US -- they are gray market. That means someone personally imported them at great expense (federalization costs A LOT).

    Baur (Stuttgart Germany) modified a limited number of these cars in the 2002, E21, and E30 body styles. NONE of them were sold to the US market.

    This car was imported to the Bay area, and for the past ~9 years it's been in NM. It is a RUST FREE garage queen.

    It is a manual transmission, manual windows, steering, etc. White with black tops, black cloth Recaro seats.

    It has a 5 speed dogleg manual transmission -- most people have never seen (let alone driven) such a tranny -- reverse is where first gear normally is; first is where second normally is, etc.

    Engine:
    Rebuilt with Ireland Engineering 3.0L kit (9.8:1 pistons)! I have extensive pictures and documentation of the build -- the kit alone was $2500.
    $1200 in parts on the head rebuild (Schrick 272 cam). Big bore throttle body from Ed Mazula. Total engine build was north of $7k. I purchased the engine with ~20k miles on it after the car it was in was rear-ended and totaled. For more information on the engine, look up the (infamous) 3.0L stroker by davelength on the e21 boards. Battery relocated to the trunk.

    New parts:
    Distributor cap and rotor
    Performance spark plug wires
    O2 sensor
    Crank position sensor
    Battery
    Hoses
    Clutch, Guibo, Engine mounts, Gaskets
    Clutch slave

    Fuel injectors were cleaned and refurbed

    Body has 100k miles on it.

    Has stainless brake lines and stainless Ansa exhaust
    Python alarm with proximity sensor

    Extras included:
    Extra targa top (try finding one these days)
    Complete original 323i engine (and engine stand)
    A/C from a 320i (not installed)
    MANY E21 and E30 parts

    Willing to bring to a shop of your choice for a pre-purchase inspection and ship.

    $6995 OBO

    Thanks,
    Paul
