1981 BMW Alpina E12 B7 - $54000 (Seattle)
Alpina E12 B7 #209
If you're looking at this ad, you know what it is. Yes, this is the real deal.
Imported from Belgium in the 90's.
142,871 original kilometers (88,756 miles) All gauges metric.
Very good to excellent condition inside and out.
I believe it was repainted sometime in the 90's, but it's hard to tell. If it was repainted it was just the exterior, with all windows out.
Sapphire blue metallic (paint and clear coat is in excellent condition)
Bold Alpina period correct blue graphics installed now (vinyl applied over clear coat) Can easily be removed if you so wish.
Body is excellent, with no noticeable dents or scratches.
No rust. I seriously doubt it has ever been driven in the rain, or spent a night out in the elements.
All chrome and polished aluminum is in very good condition.
Original BMW glass in all windows.
Original Scheel front seats (fronts have been recovered using original Alpina fabric)
Rear seats in excelent condition.

Newer tires on Original 16" staggered Alpina open face wheels.
Non sunroof car
No AC installed from the factory.
Many more photos on request.
I believe there are only two, maybe three E12 B7 in North America.
This car was registered in California at one time, but I cannot guarantee that it can be registered there now. Clear Nevada title.
Car is presently located in Reno Nevada, but I'm from Seattle, and I thought I'd list it here to try to avoid all the "can it be registered in California?" questions. Nevada isn't exactly a hot bed for vintage BMW collecting.
I'd really just like it to go to a good home, and stay in this country.
If it doesn't sell here on CL in a reasonable time, I'll go the usual consignment route.
