1980 BMW 3-Series Base Additional Info:

Bought this beautiful barn find, California original Blue-plate and matching number of a car with many detailed service records. It had not been driven but 400 miles since the original owner who was a professor at Stanford University passed away in June of 2013.
So I checked the fluids and carefully primed it before starting it.
Drove her 60 miles to my city, passed California Emissions (AKA Smog Check) before driving her home.
Immediately ordered the usual preservation kit Consisted of: Radiator, Water pump, Thermostat, radiator hoses, Oil, Oil Filter, Air Filter, Spark plugs, Antifreeze and Valve cover gasket.
Replace all with new parts and also did a valve adjustment.
I also replaced front strut cartridges, front strut mounts, rear shocks and rear shock mounts. (they were originals!!!)
This car is super original besides the new shocks and parts that I replaced with few blemishes on the exterior as shown in the pictures. I was tempted to paint the steel wheels and paint the imperfections but decided not to, in order to preserve it's originality. Even the windshield is original.
The engine has never been apart and so it smokes a small puff when started cold and then no more once it runs a minute, it runs excellent.
Everything works and is in excellent and original condition for how old she is.
Current smog check and clear california title at hand. Ready for a new appreciating owner.
Good Luck,
