1972 BMW 3.0CS Looks Great, Auctioned On Bring A Trailer


  • We might need a word to describe the excellent classic cars on auction sites during a pandemic. Something like doomscrolling, but without the negative connotation. (Or maybe: window shopping.)
  • For example, how about this 1972 BMW 3.0CS that was originally sold in Germany and imported to the United States in the 1980s? Of course, it’s been repainted, and who knows how many kilometers there are actually on it. But it looks good and appears to be in excellent condition.
  • The current auction is $ 50,000 and the auction ends Friday.

    Scrolling through vintage car auction sites has become more popular than ever during the pandemic, if the prices of many recent auctions tell us anything. Our friends at Bring a Trailer continue to provide many “Can You Believe This?” Social media. The announcements as a final auction for these classics mimic the higher prices we see across the board for new and used cars. Today we have our eye on a 1972 BMW 3.0CS, auctioned on BaT, with a 3.0-liter M30 inline-six engine and four-speed manual transmission. This elegant example of an E9 series was purchased new in Germany and imported to the United States in 1984.

    As with any car that has so many years behind it, there are a few quirks to be found. The seller, who regularly lists vehicles on the site and bought the vehicle in late 2021, says the windows and gauges work, but the clock does not. The second owner repainted it in metallic green after 2015, covering the original metallic green taiga paint. The interior, with its beige fabric upholstery, is all original. Brake pads, calipers, springs, struts, exhaust, water pump and fan clutch have all been replaced at some point since 2015, according to the owner. Bilstein lowering springs and struts were installed in April 2019.

    The 16 inch rims are “Alpina style” and not original. The odometer reads approximately 10,000 miles, but the actual mileage is unknown. Service records for the car, dating back to the 1970s, are included, as are owner’s manuals, import documents, and a Connecticut-specific title. The Panasonic AM / FM stereo knows nothing about your smartphone.

    The vehicle is located in North Salem, New York, and anyone in the area can make an appointment to view the car on December 17th.
