Ebay item 9/2/15
Current bid US $41,500.00
Reserve not met 1 bid 9 days left in auction. Buy it now price $77,500. 65k miles.
2nd owner, bought car in 1993 with about 59,300 miles on it. I am only person to drive the car after purchase. Have driven the car on weekends. This is the 3rd Series 3 that I have owned. Replaced many parts on the car, not because they were broken, but because working on it was a hobby. As much as possible, all original equip has been used on car since purchase. Decided to do some restoration in 2004, so car was not driven for several years. Car has been driven less than 300 miles since down to the metal prep and painted original regency red. Doors disassembled & inside painted, new glass guides/rubber, window & latch hardware reworked, If an item was removed to access something else, then the removed item was often replaced during reassembly. Ron Davis alum radiator with fans, car cools, even in 95 degrees - factory radiator/fans come with car. Stainless exhaust (has 73 style tips, sorry). Engine was refreshed, new bearings, valve job, new timing chain components. The rear main engine seal was leaking slightly, so just rebuilt the motor when replacing the seal including new engine seals and gaskets. New wiring harness forward of firewall. Rebuilt starter. Gas tank removed and cleaned, replaced gauge/gaskets. Replaced fuel pump with factory type. New shocks front and rear with new springs on rear. New master cylinder. New heater box & controls. New parking brake cable, new accelerator cable, new brake and accelerator pedals, New reservoir bottles for clutch and brake fluid. New clutch, pressure plate & clutch controls. Rebuilt transmission when motor was out, new syncs, new jack shaft etc. New brake pads, including parking brake. New front wheel bearings, ball joints, tie rod ends, amplifier is after market that works when hot, Working ORIGINAL radio. All gauges work. Leather on seats is not perfect, but not worn. Remainder of cabin is in excellent condition. New carpet, even in the rear area of cabin. All chrome on exterior is new or has been re-chromed in past 3 years - even the chrome on top of windshield posts. Wire Dayton wheels are new but match factory (spare wheel and tire are original) New windshield with rubber. New canvas soft top with all rubber. Newly painted hard top with car, good rubber & chrome, headliner needs attention, but not loose. Converted to full synthetic engine oil, transmission grease and Dot 5 brake fluid.
The items listed above are not all that has been done to the auto, just some of them. Known issues, the AC was not recharged after the paint job The frame and some of under carriage was not repainted, but was cleaned as mechanical work completed. Bit of work would turn this car into a show car or it is great driver - though its excellent condition might make someone afraid to take it into traffic.
