Owned for a year now & kept locally by only a few owners since new. This car is very unique and a truly one of a kind example of the E23 735i.
An OEM plus look has been the goal of this vehicle, maintaining luxury, performance, and styling always. It may be considered a project as there are some asthetic needs to make it 100% (see pics). Was neglected years ago and overwent a complete overhaul/refurb with thousands in maintence and parts to make it what it is today.
The e23 7 series was produced from 1977 to 1987, with this model being one of the later ones produced and sent to the United States.
Vehicle was purchased at Reeves BMW of Tampa & family owned for the majority of its life, later sold to a local BMW technician that helped install most of the swapped items, oversaw the paint job & made this car his daily driver for himself and his family as did I.
Many parts from a low mileage 745i turbo car were swapped into the interior/some aesthetic components to make the interior completely black. Dash cluster reads 93,000 miles as it was put in from this vehicle. The accurate mileage is 150,000.
Recent service included a complete fluid flush of the engine and brake system along with a complete vehicle inspection by BMW certified techniciansto ensure no further essential componentsneeded attention.
Recently professionally fully detailed, including a ceramic coating
