Shark Nose: 1972 BMW 3.0CS
The BMW E9 platform (known internally at BMW as the New Six CS) was a
stunningly executed redesign of the BMW 2000CS platform to accommodate
BMWs new range of big inline-6 engines. While the 2000CS has been
accused of being a bit homely, the 2800CS/3.0CS/3.0CSi/3.0CSL that
replaced it featured a comely shark nose that set the tone of BMW’s
styling for decades. Find this 1972 BMW 3.0CS offered for $14,700 in Wasilla, AK via craigslist. Tip from Zach Z.
Under the hood is a 3.0 liter inline-6 good for 180 horsepower when fed
via twin carburetors. Fix the few spots of rust indicated by the seller and drive off into the sunset…just be aware that these cars can have some bad rust.

This was Sarah Palin,s personal vehicle. So like her it's a rust bucket
hey, but the rust isn't "structaul"
Your elitism is noted! Jess cause we caint spells don't mean we ain't smart.
Hell yeah, I'm an elitist!
I'm pretty sure that's the Russian spelling for "structural". At least as far as I can see from here, it is.
Maybe this'll bring Hack Mechanic out of the woodwork for a cameo post about e9's and rust.
My room mate had a 2002 of this year and it was so rusty you almost didn't need to open the door to get in.
Ah, but it was high quality, over-engineered German rust…..
