This glorious pillarless coupé is finished in the classic BMW colour of Sahara Beige. The meticulous restoration of this rare RHD example was carried out in the mid-nineties and took two years to complete. The body was completely stripped and re-metalled where necessary. Then, with all glass out and components removed, it was fully repainted to the very high standard in which it remains today. The coachwork retains a superb finish throughout, free from any unsightly blemishes or corrosion; the trim is in fine order too and is largely original. The bumpers present with an excellent mirror shine having been renewed during restoration. Photographs taken during the restoration process are present in the history file.
The cabin space is positively charming. The finish is to a really high standard even on very close inspection, having also been subject to a full refresh. In the previous owners quest for perfection the interior was re-upholstered using original fabrics, including the headlining. The dash was dismantled and even the wooden fascia was stripped and re-varnished. The carpets were renewed and still appear fresh, and the boot area also remains particularly clean and tidy.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 1991cc 4-cylinder M10 sports twin Solex down-draught carburettors and produces 120hp. During restoration the engine was stripped, re-machined and converted to run on unleaded fuel. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via the 4-speed manual gearbox, which was also taken apart and given all new seals. Electronic ignition was installed for ease of use, and in 2014 the rear silencer was replaced.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 14-inch wheels remain in very good order, correctly finished with smart polished embellishers and the original BMW hubcaps. The appropriate tool for removing the centre caps is present in the boot along with the spare wheel, jack and tool roll. The wheels are shod in a matching set of Continental tyres although the spare is wrapped in a period Michelin XAS. New Bilstein shock absorbers were fitted front and rear in 2015.
This 1968 2000CS has seen just four owners from new. The previous keeper, an avid collector and restorer of historic BMWs, carried out the restorative work with numerous photographs detailing the process. It was MOTd on completion in May 1996, and hasnt skipped a beat since then. Every MOT certificate from that date is present along with nineteen past tax discs.
Over the years the car has been specifically featured in several magazines, including BMW Car and Classic & Sports Car. As such a rare and exquisite example it was also photographed and referenced for the Hot Cars publication by International Masters Publishers. The cars extensive documentation includes all these special features along with other period publications and the original BMW book pack. All handbooks are present and correct.
Worldwide shipping is available on request.
