New E24 en route

Post by gray635 » Fri Nov 01, 2019 1:39 pm

Guys:

I've been casually looking for another "project car" over the last 6 months or so. Missed out on a 1990 318i cab and couldn't find anything else that struck my fancy.

About a week ago, I spotted a 1986 euro 635CSi, blue houndstooth interior, 5 speed, 182K, in the Roundel classifieds, out in Tuscon. Looked pretty nice. I contacted the seller and we came to terms. Essentially a 1-owner car. Original owner imported it back in 1986 and owned it until his death earlier this year. Seller purchased it from the estate, kept it about 6 months and, with 1 son in college and another on the way, decided he didn't need 6 cars, so he decided to sell. Will be loaded on an Intercity truck next week, bound for GA. Here is a link to a few photos:

So now I've got TWO white 635s! :D Looking forward to having something else to fool with.

Looks very nice! I guess the E class was an outlier.

Thanks! I've got a set of open lug 16" Alpina wheels that'll be the first thing that goes on the car. I've been saving those for just the right occasion.

Hey Alan! You'll be seeing this one soon enough! Just need to get it here, find out what I've actually bought and start making my "to do" list. Then over to you. :D

^^^^ Unfortunately, no. Would have been fun, though. Coming via Intercity Lines - I hope by the first part of next week.
