Well, I’ve talked in previous entries about my desire to own one of these old New Six sedans. I really do love the E9 coupes, but I already have an Alfa coupe, so this would help me maintain the full convertible-coupe-sedan lineup in my little collection. And there’s something really cool about old-school European luxury – just a big engine, some firm leather seats, and no modern distractions or toys, since the car’s able to keep you entertained in a more mechanical way. I could even go for an E12 5-series, but the smog testing most of them require, plus the big bumpers, mean the ownership experience is not as easy.
So let’s start with the first car for today. The word about writing proper descriptions of a car you want someone to buy seems to be getting out. This car is exceptionally well-described (as is the other one), although I’m not sure where the seller gets the idea his car has a slant six – maybe he’d popped the hood on his Dart and had temporary confusion. The car seems to have had a lot of work done, including a recently rebuilt engine with 1983 head, full fuel system service, recent brakes and tires, dual Weber carbs and electronic ignition. This Bavaria seems to be a steal at $3300 in Sacramento, CA.
