While the current 3-series can trace its lineage to the 2002, the current 6-series owes a debt to the 1968-75 E9 coupe. In top-of-the-line 3.0 CSi guise, produced from 1971-75, it came with a fuel-injected 200-horse straight-six and was succeeded by the “E24” 6-series.
This 1972 3.0 CSi is an original European-spec version that features the desirable combination of Inka Orange paint, four-speed manual transmission, sunroof, and air conditioning. Could it get any better than this? This Bimmer has received a near-concours, frame-on restoration by the previous owner. Current owner claims it is “fast, tight, and delightful to drive” with cold AC and electronics in perfect working order. This vehicle makes for a great grand tourer (although admittedly it looks almost too nice to drive), with BMW’s “legendary” handling that could help you forget about the Porsche that you so wanted. But at $67,000 Buy It Now, maybe you’d rather have the Porsche?
