Description:

1984 BMW 5-Series

HERE IS A 1984 BMW 528E COMPLETE DRIVE LINE SWAPPED TO 535I WITH EURO ACCENT
TRANSFORMATION STARTED WITH A CLEAN ZERO RUST 1984 E28 WITH ORIGINAL 200K MILES ON THE CHASSIS.
WHEN I BOUGHT THE CAR DROVE IT AROUND FOR A YEAR OR SO BUT THE ENGINE AND REST OF THE DRIVE LINE WAS TIRED SO INSTEAD OF REBUILDING THE SMALLER ORIGINAL ENGINE AND STILL BE UNDER POWE, I DECIDED TO CONVERT. BY HAVING LOT OF CONTACTS IN THE OLDER BMW INDUSTRY I FOUND AND PURCHASED A REAL EURO E28 WITH 3.5LTR MOTOR THAT WAS COMPLETELY REBUILT FRONT TO BACK WITH ALL NEW ENGINE COMPONENTS AND SUSPENSION, REAR END AXLES ALL URETHANE BUSHING, AWESOME TRANY AND SO FORTH, BUT THE CAR WAS REAR ENDED AND THE TRUNK AREA WAS REALLY BAD AND INSURANCE PAID THE PREVIOUS OWNER AND IT SAT IN HIS SHOP WHILE HE WAS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HE WANTED TO DO WITH IT, THAT IS WHEN I WAS POINTED OUT ON HIS DIRECTION AND END UP GETTING THE COMPLETE EURO E28.
ONCE I PICKED UP THE CAR I SHIPPED THE EURO E28 AND MY US E28 TO MANOFIED RACING IN PASADEN, CA. WHERE THEY SPECIALIZED IN OLDER BMW MODIFICATION AND RACE PREP OR REBUILDING THESE GRATE CARS. AS BOTH MY CARS GOT THERE THEY STARTED SWAPPING ALL THE DRIVE TRAIN FROM THE EURO TO THE 84 528E CUSTOM MADE COIL OVERS WITH BILSTEIN STRUTS.THAT INCLUDED EVERYTHING SUCH AS SUB FRAMES, REAR END, AXLES,DRIVE SHAFT, TRANSMISSION, ENGINE, WIRING HARNESS, HEADERS,SUSPENSION WITH ALL NEW URETHANE BUSHINGS BOTH FRONT AND BACK, ENGINE MOUNT, ECU, STEERING BOX, A/C UNIT, FULL EXHAUST SYSTEM AND SO FORTH.
FEW WEEKS LATER THEY HAD THE MY E28 BUTTONED UP AND GOT IT STARTED AND READY TO GO, ONCE I TOOK THE DELIVERY OF MY E28 AT MY FIRST TEST RIDE I WAS AMAZED HOW POWERFUL AND TORQUE THIS THING IS AND THE HANDLING WAS LIKE IT ON RAILS VERY TIGHT YET COMFORTABLE TO DRIVE.
ONCE I GOT THE CAR BACK I USED THE DONOR EURO CAR AND TRANSFORMED THE EURO BUMPERS AND VALANCE ALL TURN SIGNALS. FOG LIGHTSI FOUND THE REAR EURO BUMPER ON LINE SINCE THE ONE ON THE CAR WAS BENT OUT OF SHAPE,
THE INTERIOR OF THE CAR IS STILL THE US SPEC COMFORT BLACK LEATHER SEATS WHICH ARE VERY CLEAN AND PRESENTABLE AS PICTUREDBUT I ALSO HAVE THE COMPLETE REAL EURO INTERIOR THAT ARE CONSIST OF CLOTH SEATS ( LITE BLUE/DARK BLUE) GRATE CONDITION VERY SMALL WEARALL EURO MATCHING DOOR PANEL, CLUSTER DASH PARTS, LIGHT SWITCHE, DECK LID AND ALL DOOR SEALS AND OUTSIDE AND INSIDE TRIM, SEAT BELTS AND WHOLE BUNCH OF PARTS AND HARDWARE THAT IS VERY HARD TO FIND.I HAVE ABOUT 500 POUNDS OF EURO PARTS AND YES I DO HAVE THE EURO GRILL AND EVERYTHING ELSE TO CONVERT BUT THE HEAD LIGHTS HAVE FEW CHIPS THAT IS WHY I DID NOT CHANGED MINE TO EURO YET.
MY NEXT UPGRADE WAS TO CHANGE THE WHEELS AND BOUGHT SOME CORSA GT-SERIES WHEELS TO GET THAT CORRECT OLD SCHOOL STATICSTHEY ARE 16x8'S AND 9'S STAGGERED WITH NEW TIRES I ALSO HAVE THE 17'S IN THE SAME SIZE SO IF THE BUYER WANTS I CAN SELL WITH THE 17'S.
THE HOOD / TRUNK AND THE ROOF WAS RESPRAYED ABOUT A YEAR AGO SINCE THE CLEAR WAS PEELING OF BUT THE REST OF THE BODY HAS THE ORIGINAL PAINT AND LOOKS DAM GOOD WITH ALL NEW FRONT BACK WINDSHIELD TRIM AND SUNROOF SEAL.
EVERYTHING ON THIS E28 WORKS ALL ELECTRICAL ALL POWER DOOR LOCKS/WINDOWS/SUNROOF, INSTRUMENT CLUSTER AND GAUGES WORK INCLUDING THE HEADS UP DISPLAY.ONE RED LIGHT STAYS ON SINCE THE ECU IS CHANGED TO EURO AND HAS NO EFFECT.
THIS IS A REAL KEEPER
PLEASE ASK ME ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE SINCE I MIGHT HAVE FORGOTTEN IN MY LISTING.
KEEP IN MIND I DO WANT TO SELL THE CAR BUT I AM NOT GIVING IT AWAY PLEASE BE REASONABLE WITH YOUR OFFER OR I WILL NOT RESPONDMY ASKING PRICE DOES NOT EVEN COVER WHAT I PAID FOR BOTH CARS.
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR LOOKING.
