5k: Spare Parts: 1972 BMW Bavaria

There is an old saying amongst car guys that you should never pick up another man’s project — but sometimes you need to ignore those old sayings and take a risk you want to get a good deal.  The BMW E3, aka New Six, was a sedan chassis built from 1968 through 1977 and technically the predecessor of the 7 Series. Today prices are still reasonable when compared with similar classic BMW models. Find this 1972 BMW Bavaria offered for $3,000 in San Diego, CA via craigslist.  Update: Well, that didn’t last.  The Bavaria’s seller has deleted the listing.

A $3000 BMW Bavaria basketcase would not be an unusual find, expect that this one comes from a seller who has started a driving restoration project but given up for some reason.  The car includes a set of new tires and a pile of used/new parts.
