Description for BMW BAVARIA 1972

THE OVERVIEW
Offered for an appreciating new owneris this rare classic 1972 BMW Bavaria E3 sedan!
Finished in "Agave" greenover saddle tan leather hides, this 47 year-old ORIGINAL BLUE CALIFORNIA LICENSE PLATE specimen shows just over 72,000 miles on it's currently NON-working five-digit odometer so, typical of these older classics, I cannot verify the actual miles. This E3-chassis sedan, the four-door saloon version of the much more expensive E39 3.0CS coupe, sports a very good running 180 horsepower 3.0 liter inline six cylinder engine [recently rebuilt with newer head] with dual Weber carbs mated to an upgraded 5 speed Getrag transmission with stopping power provided by four-wheel disc brakes. This radio delete example [though presently wired with speakers in place] features the factory electric sunroof, roll-up manual windows, leather upholstery, sport steering wheel, upgraded 17" BMW style 5 wheels with great rubbe, near-flawless replacement dash, a box full of extra parts and more! This 1972 Bavariais being sold with clear and clean California title and, being the only one currently listed here on Ebay, this is a great find for the Bimmerphile or classic car collector! AND.....as shown in the teaser photo, I ALSO have a second 1972 silver on navy blue 4 speed Bavaria! Package deal on the pair!

THE BODY AND TRIM
This exterior of this 1972 Bavaria is in very good dry, clean 99.9% rust-free condition overall witha deep lustrous overall shine to the original Agave green repaint. There is one small corrosion bubble at the bottom corner of the driver door, an open antenna hole on the left fender top along with various minor nicks, scratches, worn areas and other cosmetic blemishes on this beautiful E3 sedan!

THE INTERIOR
As I hope is articulated in the photos, the interior of this 1972 Bimmer is in good to very good condition overall with workingspeedometer, horn, lights, blinkers and interior dome light.Imperfections inside the car include inoperative odometer, jammed sunroof [motor works but needs a new gear], a few heat cracks on the dash, some light cracking on the leather along with general wear and tear. The original trunk liner material and factory tool kit are not present. Overall this is one quite nice, open and airy classic cockpit!

THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
This classic E3 sedan starts easily with very strong running recently rebuilt engine, solid shifting 5 speed transmission, excellent straight and true braking and quite tight and still supple suspension and responsive steering. The rear carb sputters a bit qnd a rebuild is recommended to bring it closer to driving perfection. It is a definite flashback experience driving this rare cool classic on the open road!
