BMW 3.0 CSL (E9) @ Practical Classics & Restoration Show Sale

BMW 3.0 CSL (E9) @ Practical Classics & Restoration Show Sale

Probably the most highly coveted BMW of the early 1970s, this 1973 Coupé Sport Lightweight in Fjord Blue is in need of a little TLC. What an opportunity.

GUIDE PRICE: £60,000 - £70,000


DESCRIPTION
Visually indistinguishable from its more 'run of the mill' relations, the CS and CSi, the 3.0 CSL (Coupé Sport Leicht) was creative homologation at its best
Mechanically, these cars were almost identical to the fuel-injected CSi (which meant 200bhp and 140mph-plus) but to take it into the over-3-litre class, the engines were bored out slightly to 3,003cc
We understand that only 1,039 CSLs were built in total with 500 of these finished in right-hand drive for BMW UK. Offered here is number 361 (#2285 361) of the 500 UK examples
Finished in Fjord Blue, #361 was first registered in the UK on 27/09/1973 and now has 67,544 miles indicated and the V5 shows three former registered keepers.

Offered from a deceased estate with no paperwork apart from the V5
Starts and runs, needs a radiator. It's hoped it will have one fitted before the Auction otherwise will be sold as is. Missing its 'CSL' boot badge (presumably taken off when paint was being applied in the past)

We would recommend any interested parties to come along to the NEC and satisfy themselves as to the amount of work that may be required to return this rare car to the road
