For Sale at Auction: 1988 BMW 325i in Scottsdale, Arizona

Auction Vehicle  

Vehicle Description

Starting as a 1988 BMW 325I convertible, this vehicle has undergone a large overhaul. The original engine has been replaced with an EFI Ford 5.0-liter V8 from a 1992 Ford Mustang configured with COMP 251 Cams, Ford GT intake manifold and an oversized cooling system. Backing the engine is a 5-speed manual transmission. To make room for the V8, the BMW no longer has power brakes or air conditioning, but in place of the stock brakes place now sit 6-piston Wildwood brakes, fully updated hard-lines and stainless-steel brake lines. While the air conditioning is not currently in the car, there is room in the engine bay for it. The rest of the undercarriage has undergone a full overhaul. The front suspension has been completely replaced with new control arms, tie rod ends, bushings, wheel bearings and fully height adjustable 16-way adjustable coilovers. The rear end has all-new bushings, subframe bushings and received corrosion resistant coating. To breathe, the car has a custom American Muscle exhaust with dual 2.25-inch tubes directed from the headers and it sports a 3.73 rear end. The interior has been updated and refreshed and both the front and rear seats have been reupholstered with new cow leather. The canvas convertible roof has been completed replaced and works smoothly. The exterior paint is in good condition, but not excellent and has a few blemishes.
