Excellent example of this iconic model. Originally titled in CA but lived all its life in eastern Oregon,
there is no visible rust on this car. All smog equipment was removed long ago (I don't have it),
and car runs strong with a weber carb and 4 speed. Original owner had it until 2011,
and 2nd owner did some nice refreshing of the car and added the Enkei wheels. In the last 3 years
the car received a new exhaust system, front brakes, replaced inner and outer tie end rods,
replaced differential shaft seal, shift mount bushings, motor mounts, partial new gas line, new
battery, plugs, wires, fuel filter, Bilstein shocks, fog lights, fluids, flushed the radiator,
new BMW front windshield seal and more. AC compressor does come on, and has a new drive
belt but does not blow cold air, (has probably not been used in a long time).
Sunroof works properly and all lights and gauges. All rubber and chrome are very nice. Odometer is working and reads 78,500 miles,
(which could be original based on condition, but impossible to say, however the car is running its original starter
and alternator). Car starts immediately and performs as intended on all levels (very enjoyable to drive and shift).
Front seats have been re-done at some point and are comfortable. One re-paint in the original Manila color is
probable, though there are some stone chips (but no rust). Engine bay is very clean, as is the trunk.
Overall, a strikingly beautiful car (IMHO) that runs strong and sounds even better. Large file of detailed
photos available. A PPI was done in September and all work noted in the inspection was completed and showed
cylinder compression of 130/120/120/120 and is considered operating as intended. Happy
to take the car to Hubbard's German Auto in Eureka if a buyer wants to order another one.
2nd owner bought the car from an estate, and prior records were not found. This car has always
been well-taken care of and it shows.
