A brief introduction last year I purchased a 70% complete non-rusty 1970 2800 CS
I ended up buying a project car from a local car paint shop not knowing or seen a live BMW E9 ever…

At first I was looking for an E10 to do a full restore on I had some experience restoring my VW beetle from 1972.
So I made up my mind and went for it and started searching for BMW 2002 TI in very bad shape manly on german car websites.
It took some months when I by mistake bumped in to a 3.0 CS posted in the wrong category and that changed it all J
I’ve put the car in a rotisserie to do a factory restore. I already done some shopping at wallothnesch to get the car as original as possible.

The front subframe is prepared to install a BMW M3 E36 S50B30 Engine. Large oilsumb relocated to front of engine.
The chassis will be stitch welded and reinforced to handle the additional power and torque.


Thanks for sharing all the great info and pictures, the e9coupe.com forum has been very helpful to me so far.

You’ll be the “flying” dutchman with that motor! (sorry, couldn’t resist)
Steve, you never can. Ivo, may I be bold enough to ask, will you paint your coupe Polaris silver to match your silver mane? Mine does at 78 years and counting. Steve
