1982 BMW 3-Series Base Coupe 2-Door Additional Info:

I was fortunate to acquire this 3 owner, (counting me) very original E-21. The Lady who owned the BMW lived in Idaho, and had purchased it in 1984 with around 15,000 miles. At present the car has 126,768 true miles, and yes the odometer works just fine. She had owned the car for the previous 31 years but was to old to drive, and had no grand kids to give it to. I raced up to buy it, but when I arrived I found the car stored in her Barn, not having been driven since 2009. I put a battery in her, some fresh fuel, and she fired up. I then drove the car 163 miles back to my place in Eastern Oregon. The BMW comes with BMW Shearling seat covers, which are still very nice, and that were only available through the Dealer, that had been in place since the car was new. As a result the interior is excellent. The car also comes with a BMW dash cover, and a Factory BMW Bra. All of which are in excellent condition. The car also features Air Cond. that was Port Installed as these Bimmers did not come equipped with Air from the Factory. The Compressor turns freely, so it may work with a charge. Also has an aftermarket Alarm, and After Market Cruise Control. I have never tried either to see if they function, as I had planned to remove them. The Car is a Bolt Action,(5 speed) Getrag that shifts like butter, and Clutch is great. All lights, both Clocks, the Original Blaupunkt Stereo and cassette. Have not tried the cassette player. Even the cigar lighter still functions. So far I have put about 4600 miles on the Bimmer. I'm no mechanic so I've had the following done at local shops. New O2 Sensor, replaced plugs, points, cap rotor and wires. New coolant hoses all around. New rear brakes and wheel cylinders, and new belts, and new muffler. Tires are about 50%. I also have spare parts,( clutch master Cyl- thought mine was bad, but I was mistaken), new front disc brake kit with Hardware. new lower fuel filter, new extra ignition control unit, rear fuel filter, and other misc items. The original tool kit appears to never have been used. The BMW features BMW BBS Wheels. They have chips and scratches that would look better with polish. The left rear wheel is the worst, with lots of chips as if a tire chain had come loose, (see photos). The car is virtually rust free with only one spot of surface rust below the left tail lamp. Carpets and headliner are excellent also. The Car is Cold Blooded and takes two or three tries in the morning. The previous owner said they replaced the cold start valve just prior to storing it. After parked she starts, but seems to load up until the engine is reved up. Then she is fine. At 60 mph on the highway she virtually sings. A real joy to drive. She gets many thumbs up and comments at fuel stations. In the fuel dept. If I fill the Tank fuel dribbles to the ground until I go about 5 miles. As a result I only put in 5 or 6 gallons at a time, and have no trouble. I've been told by two mechanics that it is most likely the rubber connection between the Tank and the Filler Neck. I'm nearly 70 and just don't have the money, skills, or facility to get her up in the air for a fix. She has all original books, and even the Original German Build Sheet. I most of the paint appears original to the car. with only a small dent on the left rear top, an indentation on the right door, and the spot of rust under the right rear light. This is a strong running exceptional car that can only appreciate. The only reason she is for sale is I will soon be needing to make frequent trips to Portland which is about 4 hours away, plus I'm in need of a larger car. Now the hard part. These are selling anywhere up to $15,000. I've sold cars here before, and I know whoever buys her will no doubt have to pay some shipping costs. Therefore I'm going to price it for a few hundred less than I have spent hoping she will find a new home quickly. Also I will be glad to store her in my covered carport until you can arrange shipping, without charge for a reasonable length of time, as long as full payment has been received. I hope this will help, and I will do everything I can to assist your driver., or fly to Walla Walla Wa., which is 14 miles away, and drive her home. Clear Oregon Title in my name with No Brands. This is a chance to own a True Classic that is one of the finest available, and at a bargain basement price. Thanks for looking,and email me with any questions, Mike.
