1983 BMW 533i
Big Six 3.2Liter Inline 6-Cylinder
Manual 5-Speed Transmission
As seen in photos
Smooth running BMW
This 1983 BMW 5331 has only 154246 miles. This 533i is being sold as-is with NO RESERVE. Body is in overall solid condition with one very small area of rust on the right front corner of the hood, as seen in the photos. The Leather interior is in excellent condition for a vehicle that is 33-years old. This is a very clean vehicle that runs great. 3 of the 4 windows worked at the time of this listing, the passenger side rear did not and I was unable to unlock the passenger side rear door to open it. I could not find any evidence of a collision and the car looks as straight as when it was new. The Air Conditioning did not work the day of this listing. I will try to add photo's of the engine later, I could not get the hood to fulloy release the day I took photos. My mechanic next door stated he had thoe hood opened and would open it for me Monday. YOU SEE IT AS WE RECEIVED IT….
The 533i has a smooth running 3.2 Liter Inline 6-cylinder engine starts right up and runs strong and comes with a manual 5-speed transmission. Transmission shifted smooth as it should, with an ever so slight grind when engaging reverse. The clutch did seem weak (slipping but driveable) and as seen in the photos, the previous owner has in the trunk a new clutch, pressure plate and throw-out bearing. This is a BMW CLASSIC and a classic collectors rare find or a money maker for the Wheeler-Dealer that wants to do a little renovation and resale. The vehicle is sold as-is and any statement made in this listing does not represent a guarantee. Vehicle will come with a CLEAR Title.
Being sold by R and T Auto Sales located in Bedford Ohio.We are a clearing house for vehicles received in trade by a number of high-end local dealerships that only wish to display and resell high-end used cars on their lots.We buy in bulk what they will not show on their lots and sell most to the general public in the same condition we receive them AS-IS with the savings passed along to the consumer or repair facility that purchases vehicles like this for needed used parts.
Selling AS-IS without reserve.I do my very best to describe every vehicle I sell as accurately as possible.Nothing is intentionally misrepresented nor are there any intentional omissions.In no way do we attempt to glamorize or professionally detail any of the vehicles we sell. Often the photos are taken shortly after they arrive with interiors not cleaned and carpets not vacuumed. That said I emphasize that all vehicles are listed and sold AS-IS.If you have any concerns or optimism and or you are not willing to buy this vehicle absolutely as-is please do not bid on this vehicle. I highly recommend a pre-bidding inspection.If you chose to bid without a pre-bidding inspection you do so knowing this vehicle is being sold AS-IS.If you are the high bidder… you bought it.You will be fully expected to comply with the terms of this auction and complete your purchase in a timely manner.
Sellers statement of understanding to Bidder and Buyer; as stated, we sell vehicles in the same condition we received. We have no history of records. We do not inspect the vehicles, the walk around photos show the condition as well as I can describe. We may have driven it without problems, if so I state that. We do not attempt to over glamorize any vehicle, sometimes buyers set their expectation too high and ignore this disclaimer. That said, it doesn't guarantee the car would be absolutely problem free to you or any buyer, things do wear out and break. I make no claims of warranty on any of the vehicle we sell. The majority of buyers are looking for that diamond in the rough and that is what we hope to supply. The majority of feedback from buyers affirms that. Still occasionally there is a buyer who does not comprehend the risk of buying a vehicle online with no history except for a clean title. You can see I have only few negative feedbacks, one from a buyer who ignored my statement about a large hole in the leather and the interior very dirty only to file a negative feedback stating I said the interior was mint. The other recent buyer drives here 4-hours with the mindset to take the risk and drive home a truck with 250K rather than transporting it, drives off our lot without license plates because as he states "he doesn't need license plates", only to have the transmission fail a hundred and fifty miles from us... yet still, as-is to him somehow meant 'perfect', something we never state, nor do we guarantee a problem free drive home if you chose to do just that. A third buyer ignored our statement the vehicle was not drivable, safe or road worthy, flew from Florida to Cleveland and decided he knew best and attempted to drive off only to have battery trouble down the road. BID only if YOU understand there are risks and only if you are willing to accept those risks. Others have and the positive feedback prove that!
