This glorious pillarless coupé is finished in the classic BMW colour of Blue. The meticulous restoration of this rare RHD example was carried in 2018-2019. The body was completely stripped and re-metalled where necessary. Then, with all glass out and components removed, it was fully repainted to the very high standard in which it remains today. The coachwork retains a superb finish throughout, free from any unsightly blemishes or corrosion; the trim is in fine order too and is largely original. The bumpers present with an excellent mirror shine having been renewed during restoration. Photographs taken during the restoration process are present in the history file.
The cabin space is positively charming. The finish is to a really high standard even on very close inspection, having also been subject to a full refresh. The interior was refreshed using keeping it original, including a new headlining. The dash was dismantled and even the wooden fascia was stripped and re-varnished. The carpets are new, and the boot area also remains particularly clean and tidy with a new carpet.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 1991cc 4-cylinder M10 sports twin Solex down-draught carburettors and produces 120hp. During restoration the engine was stripped, re-machined and converted to run on unleaded fuel. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via an automatic gearbox, which was also taken apart and given all new seals.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 14-inch wheels remain in very good order, correctly finished with smart polished embellishers and the original BMW hubcaps. The wheels are shod in a matching set of Continental tyres although the spare. The front and rear brakes have been rebuilt.
This 1968 2000CS has seen just three previous owners from new. The second owner had the car for 15 years in a barn and the previous owner had the car for 7 years unrestored. The previous keeper, an avid collector and restorer of historic BMWs, carried out the restorative work with numerous photographs detailing the process. The car starts and drives and does not skip a beat. The are has 93000 original miles on the clock.
