Bid for the chance to own a 1973 BMW 3.0CS 5-Speed at auction with Bring a Trailer, the home of the best vintage and classic cars online. Lot #25,766.
I like it a lot! Looks pretty solid!
Good luck with the sale!
Would have loved to keep it and that was my absolute intention upon purchase.
But, life dictates.
I believe the ad is thourough.
If not, let me know. Did my best to provide all information and be as transparent as possible.
Thanks for the quick response. Yes, bat doesn't get into the details. Having sold on Bat before, you may want to put together a "post" explaining all that. My advice would be to not let the crowd define what happened to the paint is as they will likely blow it way out of proportion and derail any momentum you have going. My 2 cents of course!I said it to BAT but they decided to word it in a simplistic way.
According to the previous owner the paint did not harden properly and had hairline cracks all over the car.
So, scotchbight was used to bring the car to it's current look. Grey showing through in a few areas.
Found a matte black rattle can that matches pretty well and it will be in the trunk for the buyer.
Still has some crack. But, imo, the car looks badass.
I would keep it if it made sense finacially.
Daughter starting collage next year and home improvements take precedence.
Agreed. With 13 hours to go this ad has more views and watchers than the red coupe that sold prior.@gdub0717 - Don't sweat the lack of comments or bids at this point. The serious folks don't come out until the last 10 minutes. Your car will definitely appeal to enthusiast that want a specific color and may want to restomod a bit. Tues and Wed are allegedly the best days for a closure of an auction... At least that's what they told me
I'd say good luck but I don't really think you'll need it!
