Selling for no reserve. Final bid wins.
Unique 1972 BMW 3. 5 CSI Black on Black with upgraded 3. 5 liter fuel injected motor and 4 speed manual. This is a genuine 3. 0CSI E9 coupe from Europe. Never produced for US Market. It was originally delivered to Italy. These are rare to find.  Purchased as a project and invested several thousands to make it an outstanding example of a Resto-Mod E9 coupe.  
First thing you will notice is the striking black glossy paint and 17 BBS polished Style 5 wheels. The front has a very nice custom front spoiler with integrated vents and front bumper was deleted. It really highlights the shark nose front end. The side markers have been shaved along with rear BMW trunk emblem.  All other emblems and vent grills have been replaced.  I have all of the receipts for parts purchased for build and will provide to new owner.  
Paint and BodyCar has a fresh repaint from 6 months ago. Body was painted with PPG black paint. Original factory color was Fjord blue. Lower rust in rear quarter panels was cut out and replaced with Jaymic replacement panels from the UK. Both outer rockers were replaced as well.  Floors. trunk well. and shock towers are very solid and not rusty. Front corner markers were replaced with new Italian clear orange lights. New door locks and door stops. New windshield.
MotorThe motor upgrade was performed by Don Lawrence. Original 3. 0 CSI motor had weak compression in one of the cylinders and we took this opportunity to convert the motor to a 3. 5L B35 motor with 9:1 compression from a 7 series BMW.  Motor had approximately 80k miles and strong compression.  Head was removed and rebuilt. Also all of the fuel injectors were replaced along with fuel rail. Plenum. intake tubes. and valve cover all sent out for powder coating. Transmission was solid and only needed new clutch and resealing. Shifter linkage and bushing were replaced to have smooth tight shifting between gears. New battery. New alternator.  Upon assembly we replaced water pump. thermostat. hoses . cap & rotor. wire set. replaced jetronic unit. fuses. relays and more.  
Brakes and SuspensionBraking system was fully inspected and many parts were replaced such as new front and rear rebuilt calipers. pads. master cylinder. and stainless brake lines. Next we replaced many suspension parts. Bilstein shocks. Carl Nelson performance springs. strut mounts. tire rods. and idler arm. Fuel system needed servicing so tank was removed and cleaned. new fuel pump. new seals. and new fuel hoses.  
InteriorNext the car was given an entire new interior. Carpets were replaced with German loop black carpet. Seats are reupholstered with factory look and new foam padding. Door panels. console. shifter. dash. and rear hat tray were all replaced at the same time. Headliner was sprayed dyed black to match. Custom Carbon Fiber dash and door accents replaced the boring factory wood. Custom aluminum gauge panel holds two VDO gauges (oil temp and oil pressure) in lieu of the speaker grill.  Steering wheel is replaced with 320is factory sport wheel.     
Whats leftMostly electronic issues. Speedo. brakes lights. signals. wipers. sunroof. rear windows. fuel gauge and reverse lights are inoperable. There is a fuse that pops and a short that needs to be traced. The custom gauges are not wired yet. No spare tire. Missing visor.
SummaryThis is an amazing car and gets tons of attention and thumbs up. Black is one of the most stunning colors on this coupe. The chrome and black just really make the car pop. It is truly a unique build and may not be for the E9 purists but I built it for my own use and had already restored a few E9s in the past. The car is very fast and strong. Motor and transmission are very healthy. Big difference from the stock 3. 0 CSI power plant. The suspension is incredibly tight and handles beautifully. Once the car is fully sorted it is car show worthy and a real hoot to drive with the bigger motor. The perfect road rally car!
