Description

FOR SALE: UK RHD CSL // Nut and Bolt restoration just completed.

EQUIPMENT
RHD UK City Pack, Electric windows, PAS, Scheel sports seats, Alloy wheels, Aluminium bonnet, boot lid and door skins.

EXTERIOR
This jaw dropping CSL is finished in Fjord blue, a sharp and beautiful period BMW colour, perfectly suited to this homologation special. The paint work is first class having just rolled out from a 2 year nut and bolt restoration with mark specialists. This is chassis number 214 of the 500 RHD run.

The original car was completely stripped to a bare shell and rebuild as per factory standard, as such it stands as new. All of the chrome work has been addressed to ensure a 1st class finish, rubber seals replaced and glass crystal clear. The headlights are brand new as are the indicator lens and chrome work nestled onto the side of both front wings.

The theme continues underneath, equally clean and as good to look at as above with all components treated and rebuilt. Simply staggering and a worthy finish for such a successful touring car.

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. Much like the exterior, no piece has been left from attention inside. Anything replaced has been done so with careful consideration and attention to ensure the original factory finish or colour scheme has been upheld. The punched black headlining specific to the CSL has been replaced with an exact copy as has the carpet, speckled in colour, more often than not just replaced with black cloth.

Slide into the brand new Scheel seats and it’s obvious this is a special car. Factory door seals and window seals have all been renewed and the plastic carpet covers (all too easily broken or lost) are still present and in excellent order.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The matching number 3.0L engine has been fully rebuilt to ensure common integrity throughout the restoration. Every component attached has been stripped down and replated or replaced resulting in a fresh as new finish rarely seen on the CSL.

The gearbox again rebuilt with every bush of linkage refurbished or renewed that becomes clearly obvious when out on the road with a tight and positive shift.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The period 14 inch BMW wheels are refurbished and present as new with sparkling chrome centre caps, new stickers and wheel bolts. Wrapped in good rubber all round with plenty of tread the multi spoke alloys hide new calipers, discs and pads all round.

All suspension components have been renewed with new shocks, ball joints and rubber bushes complimenting an incredible restoration and contributing to a tight and responsive drive as if it were new back in 1972.

HISTORY FILE
First registered on 15/03/1973 chassis 2285214 has been lucky enough to have been rebuilt for a second lease of life. Confirmed by BMW group archive as being produced from the factory in Fjord blue. The car has been off the road since 1986 and with just 3 previous owners we felt it appropriate to restore this iconic touring car and save it from the fate of many E9s that were left to fade away.

On file is a full photographic album of the restoration from start to finish showing the intense and lengthy effort that has been lavished on this historic BMW touring car.

The car is supplied having had an extensive intake inspection. Warranty, Finance, Part Exchange and Worldwide shipping are all available on request.
