One Owner: 1983 BMW 733i E23

I've always dreamed of opening my own high end car restoration shop, along the lines of what Icon does with FJs, Eagle does with Jaguar, or what Singer does with Porsche...but I would restore nothing but shark-nosed BMWs. All of those inexpensive 6-series, 5-series, and 7-series are begging to have their bumpers tucked, modern conveniences added, and body lines adjusted to perfection.  Unfortunately, this past weekend I spent most of Saturday in the garage hacking up a piece of box steel to replace a broken link in my garage DT Restoration Shop yet.  Find this 1983 BMW 733i offered for $8,900 near Albuquerque, NM via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck.

From the seller:

For sale $8900. 
one owner 1983 BMW 733i that looks as if it was never driven. 3.2 liter engine with a very RARE 5 spd manual transmission. Carfax shows 1 owner no accidents and 87,000 original miles. Every single thing on this beauty works including cold A/C. Interior is a 10+. Paint looks amazing with only expected minor rock scuffs on the front. Not a single curb rash on the wheels and the tires are 75% good tread remaining. Car is very special. Feel free to call or text me. show contact info 
Thank you!

See another car with a 10+ interior?


  1. well, dang - that's kind of the one i'm looking for, except the steering wheel is on the wrong side, and the Albuquerque is on the wrong tectonic plate - the red leather is fab

  2. I just want to point out it's very difficult to curb wheels when you have that much sidewall. Not a criticism, that's the way I like it.
