FRESH TUNE-UP, R134a A/C, COMPLETE TOOL KIT, ORIGINAL PAINT/INTERIOR NICE!
The BMW 6-Series isn't a recent invention, and in the '70s and '80s, cars like this 1983 633CSi were the top-of-the-line in personal luxury transportation with a sporting flavor. Today they're growing in popularity as collector's items, and nicely maintained, unmodified examples like this are sure to be on the short list of European car fans everywhere.
Shockingly, this long, sleek coupe still wears its factory paint. The black finish is still extremely nice and for a collector, that counts as a big bonus. It's also a testament to the quality of the original finish, as it still shines up beautifully and looks fantastic under any conditions. That original paint also means that this car has never been hit or rusty, and even in the '80s, BMW's build quality was impressive. Sleek styling made the 6-Series the envy of the industry, and there weren't many competitors on the far side of the pond, and over here it was competing with totally different machines like the Cadillac Eldorado and Lincoln Mark VI-hardly an apples-to-apples comparison, wouldn't you say? The bumpers are in excellent shape and haven't been cooked into a dusty gray mess by the sun and all the chrome is still good, needing nothing more than an occasional buff to remain shiny.
The tan leather interior boasts some of the era's most comfortable bucket seats, because BMW's reputation as a driver's car was firmly established in 1983. Again, it's all original and while there's minor wear on the seating surfaces themselves, there are no splits or cracks in the leather and the materials underneath are still supportive enough to be all-day comfortable. The black dashboard is rather dramatic, with a pod ahead of the driver hosting a full array of highly legible white-on-black instruments, and an upper tier with the A/C vents. The center stack has the controls for the A/C system (which has a fresh compressor and R134a refrigerant), the original AM/FM/cassette stereo, plus a fully-functional trip computer! The dash pad shows a few minor cracks, which is typical of these cars, but on the plus side the back seat looks almost completely unused. The 6 also offered a spacious trunk that carries its original mats and a complete factory tool kit.
BMW's famous line of inline-six engines were the foundation of their lineup for years and years for good reason. The 3.2-liter six was given Bosch fuel injection and electronic controls in 1980, making for a substantial boost in power and reliability, and for turbine-like smoothness, it's hard to beat. Extensive recent service work includes a full tune-up with cap, rotor, plugs, and freshly cleaned fuel injectors, so it runs superbly. It's backed by the highly-desirable 5-speed manual transmission that makes the car a joy to drive, and the supple yet athletic independent suspension and 4-wheel disc brakes guarantee that it's always entertaining to drive. The front control arms were recently replaced and the rear end was re-sealed and serviced, and the brake calipers have been rebuilt and new cross-drilled rotors help shed additional heat. It currently wears 15-inch BBS wheels from a later 5-Series, but the original 14-inch alloys are included with the sale.
A very impressive car that's gaining traction as a collectable. Buy this one now and be ahead of the curve and have an extremely enjoyable car to boot. Call today!
