Bracq Friday: 1985 BMW 635CSI

The E24 generation BMW 6-series is a paradigm of the expression “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” — because the model lasted from 1976 through 1989 — a 13 year lifespan of mostly unchanged engineering during the malaise era that was almost unmatched.  It is, of course, yet another example of a brilliant design from Paul Bracq and a perfect car to kickoff our Bracq Friday celebration. Find this 1985 BMW 635CSI offered for $5000 in Chico, CA via craigslist.
