Description

- Registered in 1973, this BMW coupé of the E9 series, officially cancelled from circulation, with original number plates, logbook and complementary sheet of the time, it has always been Italian and not of foreign origin. The second owner bought it at the end of the 1970s and kept it until 2021, starting with a restoration in 2004 that was not completed. The missing work to complete the car was carried out recently.
- Bodywork and undercarriage in excellent condition, it was repainted during the restoration started by the previous owner some years ago. Original Atlantisblau colour with BMW corduroy interior in tone-on-tone blue. Complete with all the chrome details that distinguished the model, alloy wheels with new tyres just replaced, 4 electric windows. New interior upholstery in accordance with the original colours and reupholstered using original BMW replacement fabric. Bodywork recently repolished.
- Mechanically efficient, the engine was overhauled as part of the ongoing restoration; brakes and clutch overhauled electrical system restored; and tyres replaced. Converted to carburettor in the 1980s, when the previous owner considered the traditional system more reliable and pleasant than mechanical injection, supplied with its complete injection system in case one wants to restore the originality.
- The E9 is still the symbol of BMW’s big coupes, and remained on the market for a long time, debuting the new inline 6-cylinder engines that became a hallmark of the Munich-based company, as did the front end, which was cleverly restyled by Turin designer Giovanni Michelotti. The luxurious interior and powerful engine made it an extremely enjoyable car, even today, with an elegant line that blended well with the dark blue colour. An increasingly rare model to find on the market, especially in this condition.
