1979 BMW 3-SeriesReluctantly offering my 1979 Grey-market E21 BMW 323i that I have owned since importing it in 1984. Currently has ~172k mi (282k km); the cylinder head was replaced with new @ ~100k mi. and runs strong with normal oil consumption & no leaks. Timing belt done within past 20k.
Car is equipped with a sunroof, limited slip diff, Bilstein sports, 15” BBS-style alloys (tires need replacing), after-market Recaros, power assisted steering (NOTE: rack currently leaks; have original non-assisted rack available), 4 spd gearbox (also have 5 spd with correct prop-shaft available for some additional cost..) & a Momo steering wheel (also have OEM).
Body is solid overall though there is some typical rust showing on the inner rear wheel wells and also on one corner of the sunroof opening (note photos). Front fenders are perfect as they were replaced with OEM ~15yrs ago. Paint in some areas (trunk lid primarily) starting to need attention as is some of the bumper chrome but have chosen to keep it original thus far.
This is a very nice survivor car that has been loved for the 32yrs I’ve owned it with only summer use and garaged year round. I have service records/receipts as well as the rare factory hardcopy service manual. I’m only selling as I don’t drive it much these days and have too many other cars & distractions.
