Description

We often highlight the regulars through the building. We see plenty of Mercedes 280SL and Porsche 911 of the period, but it's a bit more rare for us to see the Bavarian offerings of the era. This classic BMW 3.0CS falls into the middle of the model range, but offers a truly unique look with the M30 inline six and classic German styling.

This particular example came into our shop after sitting at another shop for quite a few years. This car became a bit of a “back-burner” project while it was there. Work done included a fresh 3.0 engine installed, but unfortunately the car sat for a bit too long and once the owner saw the red legend sitting out in the rain, they knew it was better off in our care. Now the team is methodically working through the engine install and making sure everything is operating correctly before we get back into assembly and getting this classic German back on the roads!
