I have a 76 530i BMW for sale. Has been in storage for 30+ years. 
drives needs love. Very nice original condition. 90% original paint.
Lower drivers door looks to have been painted at some point.

This was my dads car he quit driving it 30+ years ago. He put all the miles on it. Bilstein shocks.
Unknown brand 30 year old tires. Car has never been in an accident as far as I know.

started up with a new battery after storage. Drained gas and drove it
around a bit. Slave cylinder died so I put a new (autozone) slave on it.
Clutch feels fine. Tires are lumpy from sitting. Brakes seem fine.
Probably needs all fluids changed, etc. Everything seems to work ok
except A/C compressor starts, but no cold air. Exhaust is wonky. Looks
like a newish headpipe but not BMW hits frame a bit sometimes. Rear
exhaust looks to have been patched and could use love.  Car does not
smoke.  Runs a little rough at mid throttle.

is nice and original but padding is dead/dying in drivers seat. Car has
very minimal rot/rust. so little I would have to look to find it.

Since out of storage it has a new battery and a new clutch slave cylinder.

is unknown, but believed to be around 140k.  Clear Ohio title in my
name showing 24466.  Title shows “odometer discrepancy”

have only driven the car up and down the street maybe 30 miles or so
since out of storage.    I would not recommend driving this car home due
to the age of the tires and lack of attention for the last 30 years.

starts fine and drives fine to get up on a trailer.  handbrake works
fine.  Pretty much everything in the car works fine, but before putting
it on the road I would recommend going thru everything and giving the
car a

tune up and look over.    Inspections are welcome on my premises and
must be completed before the auction has 12 hours remaining. License
plates do not come with the car.
