Description for BMW 3-Series 1987

Purchased the car in 2010 as a bone stock, rust free 1987 325i Convertible, stock m20, automatic, black/black interior from a fellow BMW CCA member and quickly got tired of how dreadful the automatic was.
From there is when the craziness began...
- Complete respray in Jet Black paint.
- Sourced full BMW E30 convertible interior and had the seats re-upholstered in Cardinal Red Nappa leather with pleats as seen in 80s BMW interiors by Coachtrim now Euro Interiors in Bedford Hills, NY
- Custom ordered Merlot Red Convertible top with new tensioners.
- Sourced a '99 BMW M3 coupe - also a CCA car in Bethlehem, PA that a tree had fallen on and totalled. Purchased the complete drivetrain (S52B32 engine and 5spd transmission, wiring harness and accessories) with 99,530 miles on it. Swap was performed by OMG Motorworks in Deer Park, NY. Before the motor was installed we performed complete maintenance including valve cover gasket, lower oil pan gasket, cooling system (thermostat and water pump), new cooling hoses, new Sachs clutchs with lightened flywheel, Medium Case LSD and both tranny and diff fluid were drained and filled, M50 Intake Manifold. I have the complete build sheet I can provide in Google Doc form. Car is OBD1 and has a TRM chip.

And more that I am sure I am forgetting.Not to sound cliche, but the car must be seen to be appreciated.In the winter months, I keep the car in climate controlled/dust-free storage and is garaged in the remaining 3 seasons at home.
Reason for sale: I want to build an RWB 911.

Please note: Startec taillights will not be included in the sale and are no longer on the car.
