This 1973 BMW 3.0 CSi is a European-market example that is said to have been refurbished in 2008 by Coupe King of Los Angeles, California, and it was acquired by the seller in 2013. The car is finished in white over dark blue leather upholstery, and it is powered by a rebuilt 3.3L M30 inline-six paired with a replacement five-speed transmission. Equipment includes 16″ BBS RS wheels, air conditioning, power windows, a Nardi steering wheel, an Alpine CD stereo, and Coco floor mats. This 3.0 CSi is now offered with removed factory wheels, a compact disc with photographic documentation of the engine rebuild, a tool kit, manufacturer’s literature, two keys, and a clean New Jersey title in the name of the seller’s wife.
The car was delivered in Chamonix, and work performed during prior ownership is said to include disassembling the body, stripping prior paintwork, and refinishing the exterior. Features include vented fenders, quad headlights, dual mirrors, bright trim, C-pillar Roundels, and a pillarless roofline. The seller notes two paint bubbles are visible on each side of the body along the trim line, as shown in the gallery below.
BBS RS 16″ alloy wheels with metallic gray centers are shown mounted with Falken Ziex ZE 912 tires up front and Fuzion ZRi tires out back. Replacement Bridgestone Potenza Sport tires are to be fitted to the front in preparation for sale, according to the seller. Stopping power is by four-wheel disc brakes.
The seats are upholstered in dark blue leather, and the cabin features wood trim on the dashboard, console, and door panels. Amenities include air conditioning, power windows, an analog clock, a Blaupunkt push-button radio, Coco front floor mats, and an Alpine CD stereo mounted in the glove box. Imperfections are noted on the wood dashboard trim.
A wood-rimmed Nardi steering wheel sits ahead of a 240-km/h speedometer and an 8k-rpm tachometer. The five-digit odometer shows 46k kilometers (~29k miles), 1k miles of which have been added during current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.
During prior ownership a 3.3-liter M30 inline-six believed to be sourced from an E23 733i model was installed according to the seller, who states that the motor was rebuilt in 2017 by Palma Automotive of New Jersey, with custom replacement pistons and an increase in displacement. An oil change has been completed in preparation for sale, and a compact disc containing photographic records of the engine rebuild accompanies the car.
A five-speed manual transmission was also installed during previous ownership. Additional underside images are provided in the gallery below.
A set of removed factory wheels are included in the sale.
