1978 BMW E23 733i -Stunning Classic - B.A.R Legal M30B35 Engine Swap My 733i is one of the coolest cars that I have ever owned. The E23 is a special car on its own but this one is in a league of its own. This two owner car (I am the second) was sold new in Northern California and has never left. Purchased by an attorney and Bmw aficionado the car was driven every day from 79 till 2017 when he passed away. The car has been cared for and loved with an open check book...zero expenses spared. If it tells you anything, it lived in a garage next to an e30 M3, E9 3.0csi, and a 2002tii. The car is well known in the BMW CCA and won a few awards at Monterey car week in the early 2000's for its originality and cleanliness.
