1984 BMW 735i SE (E23)
From a deceased estate; two owners, the current since 1988; hidden away with Lot 158 for the last 4 years and requiring some recommissioning
Dating from September 1984 this cool old 7 comes from the E23 generation and is in desirable 735i form. Finished in dark green, the car sits on a set of Lenso X-spoke alloy wheels painted gold with polished lips. The car appears also to have been lowered and is fitted with chrome wheel arch lips to accentuate the style, shape and stance of the car.
The 735 comes to us along with the preceding Lot from a deceased estate and comes with no documentation at all bar the keys, so the buyer will need to apply to DVLA via form V62 for a new log book with cheque for £25. The Experian report does however show the car has been in the current ownership since 1988 with just one former keeper.
We have not attempted to start the car given its been in storage for the last 4/5 years but it rolls freely enough. The last MOT on record was in May 2018 which it passed with no advisories at 202,125 miles – the odometer currently shows 202,158 miles.
As with Lot 158, it has had some rather unusual things done to it, with extra switches and other bits fitted inside the cabin along with a coating of black underseal-like substance and much red paint and tape/cable ties under the bonnet for reasons unclear. It would no doubt benefit from a major service and cleaning to restore it back to what it should be.
Under the bonnet we find the 3.4 litre fuel injected M30 six-cylinder petrol engine which developed 218Bhp and 310NM of torque, driving the rear wheels here via four speed automatic transmission (introduced in 1984 to replace the old three-speed unit).
Looking properly retro, this old cruiser could have life left in it yet but needs a fair amount of work to put right some of the more unusual features added to the car by the last owner.
