Offered for sale is a rare opportunity to own a ground up restoration and resto-modded coupe. This is the second most beautiful coupe I have ever seen (Paul Cain's is my favorite) and the craftmanship is of the highest level. No expense was spared on the $135,000 build up of this car. The paint job alone was $35,000. There are approx 5,000 miles on the car since the buildup.

It won't be to everyone's taste....but it is truly one of the best driving cars I have ever had the chance to drive! The car is located in Newport Beach.

Stainless steel brake lines

Although it was a "$135K buildup" never really stated what he was asking for the car. I think that the "economic reality" hasn't set in if that's the asking price.

Sorry Bob, I should have put the price above in the original text. The owner built this car for a client and then the buyer changed his mind and wanted the builder to go in a different direction with another car. The owner wants to recover at least some of his capital investment (or should I say divestment?) :lol:

We are entertaining all offers including classic and collectable BMWs as a trade.

house for trade...

I really thought that the house trade offer would work.....the tenant really is a fox, uber desireable SoCal enhanced front bumperettes. As I said, low mileage,probably a '75 model...Sorry no pictures.

Six figures for a "tribute" Alpina sounds like a bit much to me no matter how well done. I could buy a real Alpina in excellent condition or a CSL for that matter. And, as an aside, those seats are absolutely garish.

Thank you! I appreciate all of your kind words. Why don't you buy this car? It's a "real Alpina" and it's in excellent condition, and it may be in your price range.....just $500,000!

[/url]http://www.canepa.com/inventory/collect/BMW%20Alpina_1/index.html I did have a precursor about the design/build not being "everyone's taste", but obviously you didn't take the time to read that part. I didn't build the car, I am only selling it for the owner and I don't remember asking for your opinion, but thanks anyway. Good luck finding a CSL or Alpina for $105,000 that is in this condition. Thanks again, pal I hope to meet you one day! Oh and I own a CSL #2275395 are you a buyer or is that worth just half of what I am asking? My bad, I guess I should have gotten together with YOU before I set my price. Many regards, Ron Perry

Damn...half a million....I remember being a little sad hearing Carey sold "his" baby to a... "Bmw enthusiast"...And now such a short time later for sale again at an exclusive car dealer broker etc....I can only hope that the creator builder of this one of a kind Alpina got close to the asking price...To me and many I'm sure this will always be known as Carey Lida's Alpina

[/url]http://www.canepa.com/inventory/collect/BMW%20Alpina_1/index.html [/quote] What do you mean by "real Alpina"? I hope you don't think this car is comparable to an authentic Alpina CSL.

[/quote] I don't remember this board requiring permission before providing one's opinion. Nor did I say that you where the builder but you did post the ad.

Chic , he meant Carey's CSL for sale at canepa.
Understood. I still stand by my original comments. Those seats are totally out of character for an E9.

Are you bright white with blue piping and have 'Alpina" in cursive scripted on your forehead? :)

I suggest anyone who is selling a vintage e9 and doesn't like comments try: http://www.autotraderclassics.com/

I think it is an interesting car. As a believer in the word and the handshake I think the client that asked the owner to put 135k into the car for him should keep his word and get it. Unless he parked his money in that hedge fund of course.

Having seen this car, the seats are not bright white and the piping is actually very subtle. It was very tastefully done, and I am a big fan of keeping things original.
