1991 BMW 3-Series No ReserveRare opportunity to purchase a one owner 1991 BMW 318is E30 with only 67k original miles! Preserved in stock condition andstored for many years. This is a no reserve auction and the final bid wins this E30.
This is a remarkable example that can be proudly displayed at your next Cars and Coffee or BMW event. Its was originally sold by Pacific BMW in Glendale California on 8/3/1991. Thefamily moved to N. California and kept the car as an additional driver when needed. She still wears her original Pacific BMW license frame and original assigned California license plate with a thick stack of registration tabs as proof of her years of service!
So this 318is sat in Daly City, California in storage awaiting its turn to see daylight. Tucked under a car cover for days, months, and years. The car was started on a regularly basis and driven around the block to keep things working properly. She has non operation registration because her weekend drives became less frequent as her owner aged and had some health issues.
The car wasacquired and needed a few things to get her running in tip top shape again. Normally when a car sits you need to address the mechanical, oil, gas, fluids and filters etc. This was one of the first things I had done to ensure the health of the motor and transmission.

Upon sorting the mechanical, I was faced with the task of restoring the original paint luster of the paint and body. Heavy oxidation and lack of waxing caused thisBrilliant Red beauty to oxidize. She has been fully polished and paint has 80% of its shine but still has some oxidized spotting in areas. Particularly the left quarter panel has the most fading.
In addition the car has some isolated spots of corrosion. The car was parked in Daly City, California where the weather is usually foggy, overcast and damp some days. With that said, the body suffered some corrosion at certain areas. The body panels are alloriginal with vin stickers intact.
The drivers door door jamb has two corrosion spots, the drivers side top fender at seam, rear panel above passenger rear tail light and below passenger tail light. I placed red tape to cover the unsightly blemishes but took pics for you to see. The passenger side rocker panel has two spots near plastic trim cover. Amazingly the rockers are solid and dry. Spare tire well is dry as well.
Also, some of the undercarriage has corrosion on some of the suspension parts which are replaceable if desired. Exhaust shows signs of corrosion as well but works fine. My hope was to preserve this beauty further but I currently don't have the time between family and kids to take on this awesome preservation.
I have the full owners handbooks with original window sticker, service bookletstamps from Pacific BMW, dealer service invoices, BMW audio cassette, radio code cards, all keys and more.
Clean title in hand. Email for more info. Please do not bid unless you are well prepared to purchase the car.
I reserve the right to cancel auction early in the event of a prior sale.
