This BMW 320i (E21) started its life in 1983 covered in Safaribeige with tan clothe interior. According to the previous owner the first 3 owners knew each other and stated the BMW was garage kept. There was a repaint at some point. I took delivery of the vehicle earlier this year. The paint was stripped, minor rust repaired and refinished in 2017 Mustang GT Grabber Blue with matte black accents under the clearcoat. The E21 is powered by a 1.8 liter 4 cylinder (M10) powerplant with Bosch K-jetronic fuel injection that sends power thru a Getrag 245 5 speed manual transmission to the rear wheels.

This is a fun car to drive and has incredible handling! Every time I get in it I smile because it is so pure to drive and gives the driver so much feed back and feel unlike numb feeling sports cars today. It gets lots of attention too. People stop and look at it and come up and ask me about it.

I love the car and don't want to sell it but I had my fun with it and its time to move on to my next project. You will love driving this too and will not be disappointed. To view or ask questions call or text Justin 717 994 2374. Email jaappraisal@gmail.com
