1984 BMW 3-Series
141 cu in 6 cylinder engine
5 speed manual transmission
All wheel drive
BMW’s aren’t a recent invention; in the 80’s cars like this were the tops of the line in luxury transportation. Today they could get to be a popular car to add to any collection if kept well maintained. Texas Classic Cars of Dallas brings to you this 1984 BMW 323I. This cabriolet still wears the factory paint. The silver finish is not as nice as it could be but understandable for a car that has been driven for 29 years.
The current owner of the BMW has had it since 1987. Not actually a one owner car, but sincve 87 it has been. There has not been any recent service done on the car, but it runs very well. The original paint does say that the car has never been hit or rusted anywhere that we could see.
BMW has always had a high quality in the cars they have built and this one is no different. The interior is the cars weak point. In need of reupholstering, the front and back seats are worn and torn. Every gauge works fine, the center stack has the controls for the AC system (not working).
BMW’s haven been known for their performance, the inline six cylinder where the starting point for their cars now days. The 141 cu in engine gives the substantial boosts in power and reliability the car needs. 148 hp is in charge of making this car a bit faster, and it is backed by the desirable 5 speed manual transmission and 4 wheel disc brakes.
The 323I offers a spacious trunk that can carry any size luggage. The undercarriage is in very good condition. Again, you can see there is little sign of any rust. Part of the roof folds down, making it a very nice convertible for those spring days.
