FS: 1985 735i Parts Car

Post by JLav211 »

Hi guys. I am helping an older gentleman clear out several acres of cars. Thought some of you might find this one appealing. Really decent body that's been repainted green (originally blue), interior would be nice if it hadn't gotten wet. Cool period MSW wheels. Supposedly parked due to transmission issues.

$500 picked up near Blue Ridge, GA.

If anyone picks this up to part, I may be interested in a few items.

\edit

Possibly interested in the blown trans & driveshaft.

That dash is pretty rough... Section over the cluster has serious fault lines.
Truth. Not worth a swap, in my opinion.

The most shockingly nice parts of the car are the trunk and engine bay. Both very dry and clean-feeling (in the case of the trunk). Of course, the body is pretty decent, too.

I wish! Could use the "commission."

1.5 hours from Atlanta, a little less from Chattanooga.

Thanks for the bump. I'd love to see this re-homed.

I've been all over this car and it's just the way it's sitting on the ground. Other side is compressed.

Still have this. Tons of good parts on this awesome donor car.

Found another car at the same property. So two E23s here if you want 'em. The gray one is a nicer car, so we're asking $700 for that.

If these get parted I’d like the bristle piece that lifts out of the ebrake console and a fan shroud.

I am located in San Diego, California. I carry a large inventory of e23 7 series parts if anyone is looking for parts for their tanks ;) I also provide shipping.

All the best with the sale.
