The Fruits of eBay (BMW Race Cars)

There are not one but two fantastic looking BMW race cars currently on eBay. The first is a 1973 CLS which was converted into the race car it is today. Here ‘s a description:

1973 CSL it is belived that this car was converted in Germany by Alpina (the badge showing number “046” is still on the dashboard) in 1973 and was then raced from 1974 on in Group 4 specification. At some time (probably in the early 1980s), the CSL was imported into American and sold to an owner in California. On his death, it passed (via an Estate sale) to the last owner who raced it for about twenty years. It has the two-valve 3.5 liter engine, now on Weber carburetors and the correct Getrag 5 speed close ratio gearbox and is running and driving well. I do not have any proof of its racing heritage in Europe unfortunatlly.The car was raced in Vintage races in the mid-west up untill a few years ago.

The second is the famed E46 M3 PTG race car from the a few years back created for IMSA.

A very unique opportunity to purchase a ex PTG factory built BMW E46 CHASSIS #1 . Originally built and campainged by the BMW North American factory team PTG. In its first season of Grand-Am competition this car posted 3 GT class victories and a total of 7 top 6 finishes. After its pro race career was over the car has contined to race in the HSR SVRA vintage race series.

The car has a fresh PTG 3.4 liter full race motor, Hewland 6 speed gearbox, massive Brembo brakes. EFI management system. This car has been maintained to the very highest standards with no expense spared.

    The 3.0 CSL shown above was not converted by Alpina. The information posted is misleading.

    sort of a tangent, but a fellow is restoring a 69 2000 and documenting it on his blog here:
