BMW 3.0cs (1974)




We have found a very nice example of a BMW 3.0 CS for you. The BMW E9 series is well known for its lovely styling and many race successes. It was designed by BMW’s world famous Wilhelm Hofmeister. Know for his signature “Hofmeister” kink. The BMW E9 became an immediate classic when it was revealed in 1968. From day one it has been a timeless design. Some cars just improve with age more than others. This BMW 3.0 CS was supplied new to Switzerland in 1974. The car arrived in Holland in 2016. The Swiss tend to be quite particular in maintaining their cars. This BMW is no exceptional to that rule. The car is in a neat and rust-free condition. The original owner’s manual is even still present. After 42 years it could be forgiven for the paintwork to loose some of its lustre. The previous owner therefor took a belt and braces approach and took the car back to bare metal and gave it this wonderful black finish. All work is supported by an extensive photo gallery and invoice. The fine bodywork is straight with correct shut lines. The paintwork is in neat condition with just a few small blemishes. The beige coloured leather interior trim is an original used condition. Mechanically this BMW has lacked for nothing over these last years. In 2020 the cylinder head was refurbished during a service. Invoices naturally have been kept. The mechanical aspects of this car are certainly good, as borne out when driven. The 3.0 litre big straight-six engine runs perfectly and delivers 180 Hp at 6,000 revolutions. In combination with the twin Weber carburettors the sound produced is music to ones ears. The automatic 3-speed gearbox runs smoothly and suits the 3.0 engine perfectly by always suppling more than adequate torque, underling the BMW’s reputation for great driving characteristics. This BMW 3.0 CS more than lives up to this expectation. In short this happens to be a well maintained and presented BMW 3.0 CS, ready for many more kilometres “Freude am Fahren” (that’s peace of mind to you and me)!
