1973 BMW 3.0 CS

Adam Wickstead sent in pics of his very lustworthy 1973 BMW 3.0 CS. Built by Karmann for BMW, the 3.0 CS featured a 2985cc motor with dual carbs good for 180 horsepower. The CS line helped to establish BMW as a driver’s car, largely due to their success in European Touring Car racing.

Adam’s ride sports Alpina wheels and wears a rare shade of green paint. The E9 coupes, as BMW called them, were prone to rust so clean examples are getting hard to find.

Nice perspective, beautiful car. Not a trace of tinworm to be seen.
