Farm Find: 1978 BMW 530i

The E12 generation BMW 530i went on sale in the USA way back in 1975, but this next car doesn’t look like an 70s malaise mobile or a carried over 60s design. Compare it to a Mercury Monarch or a W115 Mercedes-Benz and the Paul Bracq designed E12 looks downright modern and cool. Factor in the rugged BMW M30 inline-6 mated to a basic automatic and you’ve got a car that you could drive everyday if you wanted. Find this 1978 BMW 530i offered for $4,500 in Mcdonald, TN via craigslist. Tip from Tony.
