Very nice, but.......

I wanna see the period event pics. They are mentioned but not present (that i could see on listing)
Not saying it isn't true, I don't know the car or seller, but anyone could tell a tall tale.........

Sharing a couple old period event pics mentioned cant hurt the sale only strengthen it and enhance the 'bitchin' factor ;)

This is the thing....when you are asking MAX money should you not have MAX value on the (4x) items making the only contact with the road?

10 hole Alpinas + Sprint Classic

or

Alpina + Michelin (original to car)

or is this a show car only -- still this is an important detail...... :rolleyes:

There are a lot of little things to tinker on this one as well, if one were so inclined. Only one item that I can’t unsee.

Before I get to that, the facebook posts on this car does highlight just how detailed the restoration was.


Back on point. I think the rear bumper needs adjusting. Perhaps it’s just me but the whole rear end looks a little cockeyed, including but not limited to the tow hook. Everything from the tails up looks straight, save for the passenger seat.

A legitimate note to self. I am planning a similar package in Colorado. It seems that a bright orange tire well (as seen above) looks odd below a black balance.

Paint the tire well black, as seen below:

Wonder where Dad's triple webers went...?!

Again, want to see the period pics. ;)

I did not read the name of the poster in the comment above about some do drive their Pitch Perfect e9coupes. Was going to post, "talk to BMW Pete." The Ultimate Driver.

Seems lofty. I'm partial to the later Batwings for that kind of coin. Inka is cool, but $400k for an E9...I think I'd rather have an M1 for a BMW collectible.

Thx Markos, looks like Dad had some fun.

Again, some old race/paddock pics would be neat. The resto pics show the motor had triple DCOEs and was flared in the rear?

Question to the group: would you restore back to 'showroom' condition or would you have kept some of the 'period/performance' modifications?

Heresy, but I would keep the orignal 2 carbs in a box and Alpina the induction, keep everything else stock. Ok maybe a hotter cam. Keep the original. You get the picture. I'd drive it.

I think $400K is where carb CSL’s in top shape should be. That is where they were for a brief time. IMO, it is the most difficult CSL to value and sell.

$175K for one that is pretty but needs a conservative $50K just to “look” correct.


Bonhams had an e9coupe alumni car valued at $377K that was RNM, but ultimately sold to a CA owner. I don’t know the price, but still needed quite a bit. One can assume that it would for well over $200K.

I know of at least two under restoration right now. One in the US, one in europe.

A total of three inka lightweights are on the market:

2211711 is for sale:


Then there is this one that Oldenzaal will be listing soon. I don’t have the VIN of this 221XX but it is near identical to the one in this FS thread. Proper steering wheel and other variations highlight that it is indeed a different car.

I think we all agree long term CSL prices are only going one way - up.
Cars like the 'project' CSL on German ebay at 130k Euro we may think are a bit of a joke but they point toward where the market is going. As others have said the Mk1 carbed CSL's are few and far between and deserve more attention - especially the good ones. Even project CSL's (of all varieties) are becoming almost impossible to find.
