For Sale: 1971 BMW 2800CS in Savannah, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1971 BMW 2800CS E9 Coupe. This is a two-owner example with known history and service records dating to new. Originally polaris silver, the original owner was unhappy with some finish issues that arose in the first year of his ownership and he convinced the BMW dealer to repaint the entire car for him in 1972. He opted for a color change to anthracite grey metallic. The finish has held up remarkably well and retains a nice shine, but there is some crazing in the clear coat on the hood, roof and trunk lid. The body is straight with excellent door fitment and panel gaps. Nice original bumpers, trim, glass and correct coupe wheels. There has been some rust repair in the floors that's not to a concours standard, but is structurally sound. Overall this coupe presents to a nice driver standard.

After languishing for years in the corner of a shop when the original owner lost interest in driving it, the present enthusiast owner acquired this E9 in 2017 and subsequently undertook a major recommissioning with a partial interior refresh, five-speed conversion and suspension overhaul. Interior is almost completely original with excellent original carpets, door panels, headliner and wood-rimmed steering wheel. Rare original pigskin seat upholstery (not cow leather) has held up remarkably well. Original dash has a few minor cracks. Presentable original wood. All gauges are clear and working.

Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 2.8 liter inline six mated to a Getrag five-speed manual transmission (this is an early BMW Getrag with the mechanical speedo drive, so the original speedometer works perfectly). Additional service under present ownership has included Pertronix electronic ignition, new Weber carburetors, new springs, Bilstein shocks and tie rod ends. The A/C has also been serviced and is working. We've driven many E9s and this is among the best we've experienced from a driving perspective - it feels particularly well tuned. It runs great and is a joy to drive.

Factory tools, original books and many service records are included with the sale. The 2800CS and 3.0 CS E9 coupes have long been among our favorites at Motorcar Studio and this is a very well sorted driver that would be welcomed by any BMW enthusiast.
