INTERIOR
The interior in a BMW E9 coupe is like none other, beautifully laid out with lashings of wood trim, it is a wonderful place to be. Slide into the Scheel seats and it’s obvious this is a special car. The seats in this particular car are in lovely condition with no tears and the wood trim remains in good condition with no major marks or peeling. There is a period radio neatly fitted with speakers making it a more usable and comfortable prospect.

The steering wheel is the sports Petri wheel and remains in excellent condition.

With excellent service history and regular recent work the engine is in fine fettle, starting on the button while settling down to a smooth idle. It retains its original matching number engine rebuilt in 1993.

The gearbox currently fitted is a 5 speed overdrive unit with a longer 5th gear, a desirable upgrade providing comfortable cruising at motorway speeds. The original 4 speed Getrag gearbox is included in the sale.
