Narrative:

Many of you know this car. I am second owner. I drive it everyday. Have gone to 4 Mid Americas. I have driven it for 4 years now. After 4 years of every day in a 1974 car I am ready for a change. This car deserves to be driven less and have the easy life LOL..always garage kept car. Car runs so good, shifts smooth and has plenty of power. In fact is is downright fast.

I hit 100 (106) plus several times on the Pig Trail chasing an M6. I would drive this anywhere in the country without a second thought..has never let me down.

Car is very beautiful and gets tons of attention. The interior is presentable but needs to be redone. Headliner is ugly. Seats need to be recovered. Dash has some typical cracks for a Texas car. I feel this car is worth 10k plus but reduce that to 9000 to cover interior work. I added up receipts and have about 16k into this car (that’s is with 2 motor rebuilds and 2 heads done) Paint has a few small issues on hood (Shiner bottle). Driver door has a new ding from a shopping cart. Misc minor rock chips. This paint job has about 90k miles on it since paint..yes I drive it that much!!

Car handles like it is on rails. I had the side mirror sput on the fenders like I saw so many done in Europe. Can be moved if you ever decide to…I like the look.

I have never wrecked the car and saw no evidence of prior wrecks. But you never know with old cars. I rebuilt the heater box a few years ago and my foam pads did not stick so it needs new ones. Heater valve has a slow drip so will need a rebuild at some point. Heater works fine.

Shifter rod has slow leak. I have installed 2 seals but still a slow slow leak. I top off tranny every year, that’s how slow it is. Great way to rustproof LOL. Guibo is new

Emergency brake should need a new cable. It worked with the drums but gets stuck with the discs. So needs new cables of old ones taken apart and greased etc. Diff has had a slow leak at gasket since I got it. No drips but stays wettish. Diff I assume is open and 3:64 but never checked.

New rubber boot on E brake. Dome light works. Speedo died last year and I just have not had time to replace it. I have had 2 additional hangers added to the IE exhaust. The IE ones both cracked. The mount on the body in back was missing so I had one made to fit…It is riveted in and should be welded in. Gas tank has a dent in bottom but works perfect.

Windshield has 2 small chips..not in driver view.

Car is beautiful and a great running/driving car. I just want to disclose all I can think of. Most the guys know and have seem my car so can vouch for it. I did not cut corners when I worked on it.

I painted the engine bay and trunk a charcoal gray. Not due to any damage. The original Verona was just very faded and ugly. Has headlamp bucket covers. Original jack.

What I am after: I am looking for Super clean E24..prefer CSi, lower mileage.

Second car would be a clean low miles E28…love both for different reasons but really am after an E24, 6 series CSi. Third choice would be an E30, again super clean possible a convertible would be nice……My car is probably worth about 10k as it sits but I am willing to reduce value to 8500. What I expect is an E24 or E28 that is worth 9000 or if not then what it is worth with a cash difference back

This next car will be my daily car so want a really nice interior and paint, 5 speed, lower miles 6 cylinder.

I am not after a car that has been heavily modified. Maybe lowing springs and nice wheels and tires, sway bars…..just not to much done to it

If you have any interest then I would be glad to take whatever additional pics you may need.. I also have no problem driving the car and meeting someone half way if we do a swap since I am looking for a strong good running car.

What do you have?

To sell outright I must have at least 9k for this car. After the sales I have been seeing it is worth that easily and then some
