This 3.0S looks super with its period 16-inch Alpina alloys and matching front splitter. The Fjord Blue paintwork presents very well indeed with a deep shine, minimal imperfections, and a few light stone chips. The car is very straight along both sides with even panel gaps on close inspection, and the chrome is still very presentable throughout. All rubber and plastic trims also remain in fine condition, with the lights crystal clear and free from any chips. The factory chrome front bumper is also included in the sale.
The interior of the E3 is really very sharp. The dash is free from any cracks or damage and the wood inlays are excellent. The current owner has fitted the period Shield seats and wonderful ‘70s four-spoke Alpina steering wheel; the original blue leather front seats are in great shape and are also included in the sale. Other details such as the headlining, carpets, and door cards are also in fine condition. At the rear of the car the boot area is very tidy, still present with the original carpet and a matching 16-inch Alpina spare wheel below.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Lifting the bonnet and seeing the triple Weber 40 DCOE carbs is a real treat for any petrolhead – and the sound is fantastic! The car also benefits from the desirable upgrade of a five-speed manual gearbox for smoother high-speed cruising.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The highly desirable 16-inch Alpinas are in very nice condition all round. They are shod in a matching set of Pirelli tyres, all of which have over 6mm of tread remaining. The brakes are all fairly recent with minimal pad wear and no lips to the edges of the uprated drilled discs.
This 1972 E3 comes with a file full of invoices detailing the work that has been carried out over the last twelve years. Such works include the upgrade to triple Weber carburettors – the carbs alone costing nearly £1,800 – plus the full strip down and repaint of the body that was undertaken in 2008. There are also some interesting magazine articles, lots of MOT certificates, and an original owner’s manual.
