My Euro 635CSi

Post by mmmeat » Wed Nov 27, 2019 11:25 pm

Hello Gang!

Well I'm embarrassed to say, I finally figured out how to log on here successfully and have some photos to show. I acquired this car last Spring and have enjoyed it immensely. She's an '85 Automatic Euro which was converted to a 5 speed (non dog leg) a few years ago in California. It was a California car all it's life till I found her on Bring a Trailer.com and had to have her!

Mods thus far include original 16" Hardy and Beck Wheels (completely original finish and bolts!); H&R springs (was outfitted with B6 Bilsteins previously, sat ridiculously high); Becker Mexico stereo cassette; new original copied pinstripes and a complete touch up of a couple panels painted incorrectly and/or needing repairs (the nose, the front left fender); and some minor seat cable repairs. Everything works pretty flawlessly now, and the single stage Zinno paint is, IMO, gorgeous ;)

The car was over in Bend, Oregon till only recently, so I haven't managed to get too many photos in before this colder/wetter season..But I nabbed a couple.

88K miles on her. Cheers!

Brian

:shock:

Cars like that show up and it makes me want to hide mine in the bushes!

Welcome to the group!

Happy Thanksgiving!

OMG, it's so nice :o I like the gearbox conversion, 5 speed manual is the way to go! =D> Now I suggest you to install the manual Sport seats, that's the only thing missing... after that it will be perfect [-o< :wink:

That's certainly a consideration, but I love these seats, frankly. I don't tear around corners too hard, and these are the originals and never touched and nice and clean..So ;)

I saw this a while ago and thought I had replied. Thats such I nice car. I love those H&Bs I have been half heartedly looking for a set but they don't come up very often. Or WEDS which they resemble. Welcome Brian, I hope we see more of that car.

Image wheels in the uk have just started making these which are very similar to the H&B's:

Can order in 15"/16" diameters to a variety of specs to suit your needs.

Wheels are beautiful but it looks like they are only offering 4 stud mounting....unless I missed something
