Unique Of the Week: 1970 BMW 2800

Unique of the Week

Our latest Unique of the Week is something that may be quite familiar for some. This 1970 BMW 2800 has around 99,999 miles, but the seller can't be sure due to a broken odometer. However, the rest of the car appears to be in solid shape and is being offered at $17,900.

As BMW endlessly rolls out new models and special trims, we thought it'd be interesting to check out something from the German automaker's past. This 1970 2800 CS is considered by many to be one of the prettiest BMWs ever made. It's powered by a 3.0-liter straight-six and mated to a four-speed manual. According to the seller it's still fully capable of being a daily driver. Originally dark green, it was repainted red somewhere along the way and the overall body is in solid shape.

There's very little rust and the chrome trim and rubber moldings are in near perfect condition. The tan interior is also equally impressive with new seats that match the door panels, new carpeting, and clean mats and headliner. It's fitted with Racing Dynamics 15-inch wheels (the original 14-inch wheels are also included) and Yokohama tires and comes with a custom cover, parts manual and two-volume service manual, carb rebuild kits, and some brake parts. Only problems are that the rear windows and odometer aren't working.

The seller claims there's about 99,999 miles on it, which, despite the odometer issue, is fairly accurate based on how much the previous two owners drove it. It's currently listed on eBay for a $17,900 "buy it now" price but as of this writing, there weren't any bids. Photos courtesy of Silverstone-Motors
