On the 30th July 1970, our rare UK RHD BMW 2800 Coupe Sports Automatic was supplied new by Brian Eldridge Ltd in Gloucester to Lord Banbury of Cirencester finished in Polaris Metallic with Blue leather. The car has arrived with us having covered a genuine 88,000 miles with an exceptional supporting history to include its original manual and service book and remained with just one family from 1975 to 2011. Most of the car’s mileage was covered in its early years with services up to 1977 stamped at 3839, 7961, 12058, 17281, 24667, 27892, 39284, 51502, 57375 and 60792 miles. It’s also lovely to see a Shell service report from Mynd House Motors to Lord Banbury at 7961 miles in February 1971 is still present in the history file. The original ‘buff' logbook confirms Lord Banbury sold the BMW in September 1971 and we have a bill of sale on file showing the BMW selling for £2500 on the 18th February 1975. The car was supplied by BMW agents Walton Garage (Stafford Ltd). The car then stayed in single family ownership from 1975 to 2011 and from 1984 to 2011 when the cars was in the hands of the owner's son, it covered just 3000 miles. Although the car covered very little mileage, it did stay taxed, insured and MOT'd during his ownership. A large selection of the tax discs are with the comprehensive history.Since leaving the family after 36 years, the BMW was treated to a professional body restoration by Brown's Classic Cars of Derrington and several photos are on file showing the level of work carried out. Other work included new front shock absorbers, headlights, and wiper motor. Since 2011 the BMW has covered over 3000 miles and in January 2019 at 87952 miles the car was treated to further re-commissioning work to include new front brake discs, pads and calipers, rear brake shoes, rear brake wheel cylinders, handbrake cable, auxiliary drive belt, stainless steel exhaust system, exhaust mounts, engine and gearbox oil change and new ignition items to include contact breakers, rotor arm, distributor cap and spark plugs. We sold to the BMW to one of our long term clients on arrival with us in 2020 and the car has performed faultlessly in the 100 miles or so it has covered during his ownership. The BMW has been part of a stunning small collection and now returns to us superbly detailed and looking exceptional.
This rare RHD E9 BMW is a beautiful looking car, it is also equally as impressive to drive. Amongst the masses of paperwork with the car is an original brochure and this is what BMW had to say about the car. "The pleasure given by a top-quality car is pleasure in precise engineering, in the efficiency of well-harmonized technical units and in the supreme feeling of command over spirited movement on the road. BMW have set themselves the task that the design of even their middle-class cars should be an outstanding achievement. Thus a car which is the paragon of the BMW production program must really achieve brilliance and a certain superiority in refined taste which is necessary to meet the competition of the International elite class. BMW 2800 CS". This statement really sums up the car, there is no doubt this high quality, fast ‘super coupe' with its newly developed 6 cylinder in line engine was a magnificent machine with true build quality.
The attention to detail on this car is excellent throughout. The elegantly styled body has superb panels and gorgeous, high quality paintwork. The interior is exceptional, is extremely comfortable and ensures a relaxed, luxury driving experience. On the road performance is something special, it feels so well balanced, holds the road perfectly and the performance and acceleration power are impressive. The six-cylinder inline engine is the basis for smooth, refined driving at low engine speeds and for vivacious pulling power and acceleration at high speeds which ultimately makes for an incredibly fun, and impressive car to drive. Even the automatic gearbox feels sporty so the car will suit many different styles of driving. This is a fantastic car, it will not disappoint and looks and drives like it should have a much, much higher price tag.Classic Cars For Sale
