BMW E30 M3 Unused Factory Shell Found in Texas

BMW E30 M3 Unused Factory Shell

Spotted for sale in Dallas, Texas is a BMW E30 M3 Unused Factory Shell for $30,000 +. Here is a very rare opportunity to buy an unregistered shell. I am amazed something like this still exists. It still has all its factory stickers in place and this has never been registered. For anyone wanting a pristine M3 shell for a restoration project , you will not be able to find anything better. The seller has been holding on to this shell for 15 years. It has been stored in a bubble on its original wooden dolly until it was shipped to the USA. At that point it was moved to a new dolly to comply with US import requirements for wood.

Part Number 41 00 1979 078

AMG 3.6L Motor

  Spotted in Seattle, Washington is an AMG 3.6L Motor for $2,100 USD.  The seller states this is a very rare and hard to find motor.  It is capable of 280hp and came from Japan with 77k miles on it.   This motor would be a good candidate for a w1246 E320 Coupe swap.   It comes with a very rare 3.6 intake tube  and for W124 with HFM EFI (93-95), comes with an already-chipped ECU for non-ASR cars by Speedtuning to take advantage of the higher HP 3.6L.

1991 Porsche 964 Turbo

  Spotted in Tarzana, California is a 1991 Porsche 964 Turbo for $119,000 USD.  The seller states this 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo is an unmodified one-owner coupe finished in Slate Grey Metallic with color-to-sample grey leather sport seats.The car has covered just under 52k miles since. It retains matching numbers, which recently serviced and inspected the car at a Porsche restoration facility. It is offered with the window sticker, records from 1992-2014, and a clean title. The car was optioned without a Turbo script on the engine lid, and a power sunroof is equipped up top. The car was ordered with automatic climate control and an optional factory CD player, which has since been replaced by a more modern unit. The factory airbag steering wheel remains in place along with other stock controls and instruments. Just under 52k miles are shown on the 6-digit odometer. Grey leather powered sport seats were colored to sample according to the included window sticker. Carpets are protected by multiple floor mats and bear debossed Turbo scripts on the rear seat backs. The vehicle just went under a full paint correction and all wheels have been refinished in the original silver. What do you think of this car?

1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE

  Spotted in New Jersey is a 1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE for $24,900 USD.   This is my favorite color combination of white with tan leather interior.  The seller states the car was just serviced and is a nice driver.  It has 44,000 original miles.   The driver seat is showing more wear and tear as expected.  The passenger seat looks like it had very little use.  Overall the interior looks good or its age.   The Peter Stevens body style produced from 1987 to 1993  seem to be creeping up in price these days.   Recently a red 1989 Turbo SE sold for $29,700 USD. What do you think of these 80’s super cars?
