sot, 3.0csi

Recommended Posts

There is that 3.0 csi abandoned near me and the guy finally decided to sell it. I have to pass on this one because i have already too much projects and a baby is coming into the family soon so my friend will take it happily.

We try to get the vin decoder but unfortunately we it fall into the later decoding type.

The car is plated ROME....so this car is rust free altough it is a bit massaged.

vin is 2260772 iirc.

Any idea ? we try to get the year at least, it is malaga, 4 speed manual and its a CSI.

I will try to post pictures soon once he gets it.

thanks.

The VIN is low enough that it is probably a 71. There weren't any significant differences in CSis until 74, when they got different patterned upholstery and different power window motors.

Cars from Italy often seem to have relatively little rust, the biggest issue with CSs. They make 2002s look good.

Don't forget the cost of interior parts. I have talked with several 3.0 CS owners and they all told me that many parts are CS exclusive, hard to get, and expensive (interior door panels cost $600+ each)

oh is that right ?....thats a bit expensive...

well, the car needs door cards for sure, all the wooden stuff into that car is peeling off.

It needs a windshield and a passenger door glass. Everything is there, it has some bottle caps style aluminium wheels in decent shape.

The valve cover is off and there is a....broken rocker...i laughed a lot when i saw that one.

We inspected the body structure and it is indeed rust free, almost.

its gona be a looong project.

thanks for all the links.

Be advised Pat, a decent windshield is not readily available

Windshields still available new from BMW MT, but they're 700 bucks by the time you've paid tax. The rear windscreen is a bit more. Worse, the front is remarkably difficult to install and easily broken, even by pros. Do not buy aftermarket -- they leak. On the other hand, you can still get them from folks who are parting coupes.

Same goes for interior parts (or just about anything else) -- be patient and wait until a parts car comes along. See http://www.e9coupe.com .

Hi Pat

Good luck with that project. And beware of rust. That body was assembled by Karman, the guy who invented car rust. And rust will hide very well. The front section at the base of the A pillar is notorious. The upper part collects mud. The fuse box area will rust, same with rockers. Don't spend a dime on the car until you have it on a lift and spent three hours inspecting it.

Brake harder. Go faster.

well, its not my project, but sort of...

the body is realy straight, i mean it is structuraly very solid. we took time to look at it a lot. if there is something hiden then we will fix it, its not an issue for us to fix rust.

what can bug us is

-missing parts

-door cards

-windshield

all the rest seems totaly doable. the mechanic dont fuss us either, we can shoehorn a 3.5 in it i believe...the goal is not to make a roster resto but a runner.

if any of you come across some parts or a boneyard donnor, let me know !!

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
