Now in need of recommissioning, this BMW E3 3.0S has been a Norfolk car for all of its life and was a regular sight in Great Yarmouth during the 1980s and 1990s. We're told that long-term owner completed a major restoration which included a brand new later 3.5-litre engine from BMW in 1985 and a new automatic gearbox in 1992. Lots of other parts were also changed and updated, with the total rebuild cost being £8500 30 years ago. The distinctive paint and adornments were applied at the same time. The owner was very particular, knowledgeable and passionate about his car. After he passed away, the car was briefly used by a friend but has been in storage for most of the last 20 years. 

The BMW was registered in October 1972 and is now showing 04129 miles on its odometer. It is currently not running, having been stored for around 20 years. Paperwork with the vehicle includes an older V5, photos of the car in use, Autotest brochure, the owner's handbook and various bills. There's also BMW, Haynes and Autobooks workshop manuals, brochure plus a BMW-branded silk scarf and tie.
