Featuring the M20B20 2.0 litre straight six engine that when new produced 120bhp and here, is driven by the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual Getrag 'box.The vehicle was in storage for many years in the Midlands until 2020, after which time the car was pulled out and subject to some recent recommissioning work including an overhaul of the ignition system, major service, new slightly lower springs all round, new brake caliper with new seals, brake cylinders and shoes, new boot lock, new clutch master cylinder, and new wiper stalk (not yet fitted, boxed in the boot) totalling £732 with other documented works including new radiator, timing belt and water pump, oil service, new clutch and reconditioned cylinder head with new gaskets at a further cost of some £1,875 in February 2020 by DNS of Stafford.

Wow, a huge amount of interest in this that I wasn't expecting. After a couple of viewings and questions the following points have been noted for transparency:Fuel gauge is showing as empty, despite fuel being in the tank. I haven't diagnosed this.Brake warning light is on. I suspect this is because the brake fluid reservoir cap spades are broken off - probably just a new cap required. As per the advert, there are new discs, pads, wheel cylinders and shoes all round. It stops well.Paint has micro blisters and overspray in places. It looks great in pictures, but close inspect shows it's not perfect. Slightly noisy bearings on the viscous fan (URO Parts 11521260459 Fan Clutch : Amazon.co.uk: Automotive)Steering wheel off-centre - probably needs tracking doing. It doesn't track to the left or right though - it drives straight and rides well.Missing lower dash cover (BMW Trim Panel Lower Left 51451869987 - LLLParts)Upper steering fairing damaged (Original BMW E12 E24 518 518i 520 520i 525 528 Fairing Top 32311108596 | eBay)And some good points I've forgotten to mention:Recently undersealedNew bottom arm on drivers sideExhaust backbox looks new (but I don't know for sure)Original interior mats are in the bootNew air filterAgain, please call me on 07590191300 to arrange viewings/test drive or if you have a question.Happy bidding!
