1980 BMW


Chestnut Red Metallic with Black leather interior and Ivory Headliner, 29,000 Miles from new, 2.8 liter inline 6-cylinder with 169bhp, RARE 5-Speed Manual Transmission, one family owned until 2017.

The BMW E12 is the first generation of BMWs classic 5 Series luxury sedan. Originally am inline 4-cylinder in 1974, BMW face-lifted the 5-Series in 1976 and introduced their renowned inline 6 and then added fuel injection in 1977/1978. The 1976 face-lift included wider taillights, fuel door on opposite side, redesigned hood with a power bulge, and the dashboard vents were repositioned to improve air distribution in the cabin.

This immaculate 528i has had one West Coast family ownership from new until 2017 when purchased by a New York collector. The 528i has always been properly stored and maintained-serviced as needed and retains mostly original factory paint in superb condition. The 528i has electric windows, sunroof, and mirrors. The only modification being Hella headlights and matching fog lights which were installed shortly after new. Original factory speakers were replaced due to age with new speakers fitting under the original covers. The black leather seats were re-stuffed in 2015 and retain their original covers.

Most recently, the 528i received a $15,000 servicing by Autosport Designs to bring to outstanding condition and without disappointment in any way. A 30k mile service was performed with all fluids and filters, new spark plugs, new seals for front and rear glass, new drive belts, alternator, a new headliner, and new tires. The 528i includes all original books, tools, sales brochures, build sheet, unused spare wheel and tire as well as an additional spare wheel and tire. This 528i is an absolute time capsule and would certainly be a showpiece at any BMW event or other vintage car show.
