Description for BMW 3-Series 1982

RELISTED DUE TO NON PAYING BUYER...I don't understand folks, as to why someone would "Buy It Now", and then seem to vanish. Well, as a result I'm desperate, so if you looked before at $4450, or even at $3950,....It is Now $2900.00. This is a great loss for me, but I've run out of time. I got this 3 owner, (counting me) very original E-21 from a Lady living in Idaho. She had purchased it in 1984 with around 15,000 miles as a Lease Return. At present the car has 127,431 true miles, and yes the odometer works just fine. She had owned the car for the previous 31 years but became to old to drive, and had no grand kids to give it to. I raced up to buy it, but when I arrived I found she had neglected to mention that the car had been stored in her Garage, not having been driven since 2009. I put a battery in her, some fresh fuel, and she fired up. I then drove the car 163 miles back to my place in Eastern Oregon without trouble. The BMW comes with Factory Shearling seat Covers, which are still very nice, and were only available through the Dealer, and had been in place since the car was new. As a result the interior is excellent. The car also comes with a Factory BMW Bra. The dash has three cracks that have been crudely repaired,(see photo), but is covered by a black fabric fitted dash pad. The car also features Behr Air Cond. that was Port Installed as in those days 320i's did not come equipped with Air from the Factory. The Compressor turns freely, so it may work with a charge, don't know for sure. Also has an aftermarket Alarm, and After Market Cruise Control. I have never tried either to see if they function, as I had planned to remove them, but the instruction booklets are there. The Car is a Bolt Action,(5 speed) Getrag that shifts like butter, and Clutch is great. All lights, including dome light and trunk light, plus both Clocks, work fine, and the glass is all good. The Original Blaupunkt Stereo and cassette are there, along with the Blaupunkt operators manual, but I have not tried the cassette player, as I have no cassettes. Even the cigar lighter still works. So far I have put about 4000 miles on the BMW. I'm no mechanic so I've had the following things done at local shops. New O2 Sensor, replaced plugs, points, cap rotor and wires. New alternator, new coolant hoses all around and new thermostat. New Bosch wiper blades, new rear brakes and wheel cylinders, and new belts, and a new muffler. Tires are about 50%. The original spare is good. I also have spare parts: New clutch master cyl-(thought mine was bad, but I was mistaken), New tie rod ends, New front disc brake kit with hardware, New Bosch rear fuel filter, and spare New ignition control module, and other misc items. The original tool kit appears to never have been used. The BMW features the rare gold center BMW BBS Wheels. They have some chips and scratches should look better with a polish. The left rear wheel is the worst, with lots of small chips, as if a tire chain had come loose, (see photos). The car is virtually rust free with only one spot of surface rust below the right tail lamp, (see photo). Carpets and Headliner are excellent also. Two position Sun Roof does not leak and functions as it should. The Car is somewhat Cold Blooded and takes two or three tries in the morning, but it does always start. The previous owner said they replaced the cold start valve just prior to storing it. After parked she starts right up, but seems to load up until the engine is revved up. Then all is fine. At 65 mph on the highway she virtually sings. A real joy to drive. She gets many thumbs up and comments at fuel stations and store parking lots. In the fuel dept....If I fill the Tank fuel dribbles to the ground until I go about 5 miles. As a result I only put in 5 or 6 gallons at a time, and then have no leaking. This just recently started. I've been told by two mechanics that it is most likely the rubber connection between the Tank and the Filler Neck. I'm nearly 70 and just don't have the money, skills, or facility to get her up in the air for a fix. She has all the original books, and even the Original German Build Sheet, and a rare original 1982 320i sales booklet. Clean Clear Oregon Title in my name. I believe most of the paint is original to the car, one door seems a little off, with only a small dent on the left rear top, an indentation on the right door, and the spot of rust under the right rear light. This is a strong running exceptional car that can only appreciate in value. The only reason she is for sale is that I will soon be needing to make frequent trips to the Portland VA Hospital which is about 4 hours away, plus I'm now in need of a larger car. Examples of the 320i are selling anywhere up to $ 8500 or more. I've sold cars here before, and I know whoever buys her will no doubt have to pay some shipping costs as I'm not in a Metropolitan area. Therefore I originally priced it several hundred less than I have spent, in hopes that she would find a new home quickly. Please compare this car to others here on ebay, and locally. Please note the Auto Check Score above. I doubt you will find another example that can compare condition wise, and now price wise to mine. I seriously need to sell her as you can see, so I have Lowered the Buy It Now considerably. Also I will be glad to store the BMW under my covered carport until you can arrange shipping for a reasonable length of time, at no charge, as long as full payment has been received. I hope this will help, and I will do everything I can to assist your transport driver when He, or She arrives. On the other hand you could fly into Walla Walla, Wa. which is only 14 miles away, and I will pick you up and you can drive her home. Did I mention the heater works just fine. Here is a chance to own a True Classic that is one of the finest available anywhere, and at a bargain basement price. Thanks for looking,and email me with any questions. Thanks for you're interest!
