Blue Plate E24: 1983 BMW 633CSi

The E24 generation BMW 6 Series was a grand luxury tourer sold from 1976 through 1989.  Its shapely shark style curves were penned by legendary designer Paul Bracq and prices have been reasonable for years. This next one is really cheap, but it needs a cosmetic refresh — which could be fun and rewarding.  Find this 1983 BMW 633CSi offered for $2000 in SF Bay Area, CA via craigslist.

Selling one of my 6ers. I found this car in a barn while scouting for cars and ended up buying it. It turned out to be a really well rounded car, with the only downside being cosmetics. Over the past few months, I’ve been working to get this car running well, but I don’t have enough room to store it. Has a straight 6cyl with a 5 speed manual. Transmission shifts smooth and the linkage is more crisp than my other car. As of right now, all the car needs is a battery and a catalytic converter to run healthy. It could also use a new idle control valve if you want it running in peak condition. Mechanically, this car is better than my other e24 that I restored. Sunroof works, butter smooth idle, ect ect. No dry rot on the tires, and the interior is in pretty good condition except for the driver’s seat. I have records dating back to the first owner that bought the car in ’83, who owned it up until 2015. Odometer is at a little over 205k. The color is “Burgondrot” which had a limited run with BMW so this color is pretty rare. Car is on non-OP with no back fees. *The orange one is not for sale!!*
