1982 BMW 323i Baur

1982 BMW 323i Baur
Memorial Day 2010 First Drive 1982 323i BMW Baur Lapisblau M20 5 speed #4154 of 4595 made. The car was imported to California by Dietel Enterprises. I have since changed the wheels, installed the clear turn signal lenses, and I am in the process of installing a new cabriolet roof. I have to do something about those bumpers, too. :) I love this car! To see one of the reasons why, check my post "Score One For the Good Guys" on 6/26/2011.

Seller’s Description: 
1979 BMW 3-Series E21 Baur Alpina tribute 
Built by Ron Perry, One of the most desirable, if not the most desirable, Baurs in the world. Restored to a very high standard. This is how Ron Perry listed it when he put it on the market. "This is a proper Baur 1979 320 carburated model. I purchased this car as a rolling painted shell. Everything has been replaced on the car. From the bottom up, it received all new pads, rotors, rebuilt calipers, new drum brakes, all new stainless steel lines, all new wheel bearings, new springs, Bilstiens, sway bars with all new bushings, rebuilt 3:46 LSD, rebuilt 5 speed trans, all new shifter bushings, new drive shaft, refinished Ronal Alpina wheels 15x6&7 new tires, new Alpina style front spoiler, Zender rear spoiler, aftermarket Alpina stripes, a 2.7L stroker motor with a 524td crank, a Schrick 284 cam, an ETA block with an "I" head. Ireland Engineering headers, all new OEM exhaust from the headers back. For the interior, I used period correct Recaro seats with correct Alpina repro cloth,new in box Alpina steering wheel, sent the cluster to Hollywood Speedometer and had Alpina font printed on the tach and speedo with correct red Alpina needles, correct Alpina dash plaque, Alpina C1 2.3 i.d. plate under the hood, e28 radiator, all new hoses and belts, powder coated plenum and valve cover, new OEM tops and top boot, all new rubber window guides, all new window trim, Hella "Big & Small" headlights, changed the carpet and door panels from blue to black to match the Alpina cloth. correct Alpina dead pedal, Alpina shift knob, period cassette am/fm, Alpina style floor mats. That is about all I can think of. The car became a very slippery slope as I wanted everything to be perfect even though I knew it would be driven! As you can see by the photos, not a penny was spared. I get most of my OEM and after market parts for wholesale and after adding up my receipts, the total cash outlay was $31,228. Car is on a California title. $27,500 Trades considered. 
Price: $37,500
