PLEASE READ ENTIRE AUCTION. I will NOT reply to questions that YOU just didn’t read below... Serious parties are urged to RE-READ thisauction and come look at the car in person.

The car is EXTREMELY CLEAN for a 1986, thecar runs and drives as it should.It is a 2-owner car, firstowner boughtit new at Tom Hesser BMW in Scranton, PA. He traded it in and the 2nd owner purchased it at 20,537. I acquired the car a few months ago. The previous owner recently lost his wife and is moving into assisted living. He had it covered and "PA classic tags" onit when I went to pick itup. He indicated that the vehicle has ALWAYS been garage kept and NEVER driven in the rain or snow. Nice gentleman and I could tell he was sad to see it go.


Here's a small list of items recently replaced (most done by our shop):

NewBMW / Conti timing belt

NewBMW water pump

NewBMW tensioner

New BMW upper hose

NewBMW lower hose

NewBMW coolant tank

New BMW/ Behr radiator

New BMWradiator cap

NewContidrive belts (3)

New BMW Guibo

The carhas ZERO,ZERO, ZERO, Rust. NONE. I have pictured all common areas below.

The 2.7 engine runs great, no tapping, no knocking, no issues. Timing belt job just done.

The transmission shifts fine, no grinding, no noises, no issues. Guibo just done.

The chassis is tight and handles fine. The car drives down the road fine,nopulling, no shaking, no issues. All shocks and struts are in good shape and show no signs of leaking.

All components inside the car work fine; all 4 windows work properly, manual sunroof works fine in both directions,all door handles, hood and trunk latcheswork properly.

All climate controls work as they should. Heat and A/C work in all configurationsand fan speeds, including rear defrost.

Radio works fine, although dust inside causes cracking when volume is first touched, then goes away. Power antenna still works properly as well.

Instrument cluster works fine, Odometer works as well as trip odometer. Thetemp gauge requires a very slight tap at times, but works properly duringdriving andhas not failed in the fewhundred miles I've driven the car. All other gauges work fine.

All lights work fine inside and outside ofvehicle. Clock also works fine.

Wipers work fine on all speeds as do washers.

Seats and seatbelts all work properly, even rear seatbelts.

The car still retains the original UN-USED: Spare tire, jack, lug wrench and wheel chock.

We repainted the rocker panels, but we took (before pictures to show there is no rust).

All BMW tools are present in the tool kit as well as the foam backing. Also has the rare BMW battery cover top "organizer" withBMW hazard triangle and Cassette cleaner kit.

All BMW factory manuals convey including the owners manual with ALL service stamps in the back of the book (see pictures). Also has BMW factory radio stickers and code cards as well.


Clean PA title in hand.

As you can see the car was loved and properly cared for, but the car is not without flaws. Listed below are a few of the flaws found during my ownership:

The Carfaxshowsa minoraccident-The left fender was repaired / replaced and is VERY hard to tell.I'm extremely impressed with the quality of repair that was done.NO repairs are visible inside or out. The car has some chips on the front end and have been touched up, buthard to see from a few feet. The driversseat bottom is showing signs of wear and not muchelse can be done to save it other than replace or have repaired. The dash has a few cracks, they appear to have been "filled in", but are still present when looking for them. The windshield has a small "spaw" that was repaired, but still visible. The orig. floor mats / carpet have some stains- these may come out with a serious cleaning, butI have not tried personally.As I mentioned above the radio volume cracks when first turning on (I blew the dust out and worked fine for a day or two), also as mentioned above- the temp gauge works fine, but sometimes needs a slight tap on start up.

I have put around 250 miles on the car since I've had it. I just don't have room for it. I own my ownindependent BMW dealership / repair shop for the past 21 years, I own afew other E30's myself and we know these cars inside and out.I would love to keep this for my son, but he's only 13 and I just don't have the room.

Please ask questions. Come see the car in person.
