Though the BMW 3.0 CSi is surely one of the most
beautiful automobiles of the 1960s, there are precious few examples left today.
One of 8,359 produced, this 1972 Coupe is finished in a show-quality Ceylon Gold exterior with its original flawless black velour interior. It is fitted with the 4-speed Getrag gearbox, optional 3-spoke sports steering wheel wrapped in leather, a vintage 8-track tape player, power steering, 4 electric windows, and a full complement of original tools in the original drop-down, trunk-mounted toolkit.
This BMW was re-painted to extremely high standards within the last decade and is painstakingly original throughout, right down to the hose clamps. It is a matching-numbers vehicle with original sheet metal and details throughout. Not a ground-up restoration, it is a well-preserved original car that has been meticulously re-painted just once in its life. And as you would expect from a vehicle of this caliber, the undercarriage is immaculate, with beautiful cadmium plating throughout, a fresh suspension, and a recent stainless exhaust system.
This BMW has been a prized show car for many years and has won in its class at easily more than a dozen concours events, including several national events such as the AACA concours at Hershey, the BMW Fall Festival at Lime Rock, and the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance. It is among the best-known examples extant and would certainly be suitable for a world-class collection.
The last owner, a judge for The Antique Automobile Club of America searched a long time to find this car. Total miles traveled is just over 60,000.
