I got this car around this time last year I believe I got from a fellow BMW fan in palm bay it was his parts car and he gave it to me for free. After a year of it sitting doing nothing I've decided its time for it to go but I'd rather try and give it away here than make $60 to watch it get crushed. The only thing I have put on it are my wheels and thus the caveat. This car is free to whomever wants it but I want to keep the wheels. It comes with a box o' parts, and like I said its a shell no motor or trans, however it does still have a rear diff (I have no clue if its an LSD). The car is badly eaten with rust so its not really a good candidate for a resto more like a Frankenstein build.

Do you have a title? If so, I think I'm your customer.

I do have the title. I never transfered it to my name, but the P/O is easy enough to get a hold of if that's needed.

The paint actually looks pretty good for an older Florida car - was it resprayed at some point? My first car was a then 13 year old 320, same color, and the paint on this 36 year old car looks waaay better than mine ever did. There was zero clear coat left. My rust was a perforation on the passenger side b pillar (the lower corner), and on the driver side trunk seam. Both were supposedly easily fixable. Floorpans and rockers on this one look pretty good. The uncracked dash is pretty rare.

Not sure if it was white before, if it got painted I guess they pulled the tail lights to paint? I think BMW back then used to leave parts of the body that didn't see daylight in primer or white, like the interior floor and the front clip behind the bumper.

That is what they call a rust free shell in Michigan.

I miss seeing Kamei spoilers on cool European cars of the 70s and 80s.

Not too bad, but that's a tad too much project for me. Good luck finding it a new home!

Thanks, I really hope I'm able to find one this week because if I can't by thanksgiving week I'm going to have to junk it.
