Modifications: THIS 1974 3.0 CS CAR IS A TWO OWNER NEW MEXICO VEHICLE. I HAVE OWNED THE CAR SINCE 1981 WHEN i DID A CASH TRADE FOR A 78 911SC TARGA THAT ME AND MY WIFE HAD PURCHASED NEW. THE BMW AT THE TIME WHEN WE GOT IT WAS A FADED BRONZE MATALLIC, UGH. THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD BOUGHT IT FOR HIS DAUGHTER WHO OBVIOUSLY KEPT IT OUTDOORS. THE NEW MEXICO SUN IS NOT VERY GOOD FOR THAT COLOR OR ANY OTHER COLOR. A FEW YEARS AFTER WE GOT THE COLOR WE HAD IT REPAINTED TO A BMW GREEN(A FAVORITE OF MY WIFE'S) THE CAR FOR THE MOST PART WAS SANDED DOWN TO TOHE SKIN(SOME OF THE PAINT IN THE ENGINE AND TRUNK COMPARTMENT HAS CHIPPED OFF), ROCKER PANEL RUST CUT OUT AND REPLACED, AND THE SOLEX CARBS, REPLACED WITH WEBERS. IN 1999 WHEN THE CAR HAD 99,198 MILES ON IT WHEN I DECIDED TO HAVE SOME EXTENSIVE WORK DONE. THE ENGINE WAS REPLACED WITH A METRIC MECHANIC 3500 ST HIGH FLOW ENGINE(270 HP) i ALSO HAD METRIC MECHANIC (WWW.METRICMECHANIC.COM) PROVIDE NEW FRONT AND REAR DOWN PIPES, EXHAUST MANIFOLD AND EXHAUST MANIFOLD PORTING. i ALSO HAD A CUSTOM EXHAUST SYSTEM PUT ON. ALSO AT THIS TIME HAD ALL THE BELTS REPLACED, NEW WATER PUMP,FAN BLADE, HIGH TORQUE PRESSURE PLATE,CLUTCH DISC,EXPANSION TANK,, SHORT SHIFTER, REPLACED TIE ROD ASSYS. REPLACED FRONT AND REAR SPRINGS, NEW FRONT AND REAR BILSTEINS, NEW FRONT AND REAR BREAK PADS, REPLACED POWERE WINDOW SWITCHES(ALL WINDOWS SUN ROOF WORK) . WHEELS ARE 16" BORBET TYPE E( I STILL HAVE THE ORIGINAL WHEELS) THERE IS NO VISIBLE RUST ON THE CAR, SOME MINOR STONE CHIPS, SEE PHOTO. THE CAR HAS SINCE I OWNED IT, BEEN GARAGED AND NOT DRIVEN IN THE RAIN. SINCE WE DID THE ABOVE WORK, THE CAR HAS BEEN DRIVEN A BIT MORE THAN 23, 000 MILES, AND MOST OF THAT HAS BEEN ROAD TRIPS. THE ORIGINAL 4 SPEED WAS REPLACED WITH A BMW FIVE SPEED...WHAT A DIFFERANCE, NEVER LIKED THE FOUR SPEED, RPMS TO HIGH, NOW CRUISES VERY NICE AT SEVENTY FIVE. THE CAR DOES NEED NEW LEATHER, AND THERE ARE SOME CRACKS TEARS IN THE DASH VINYL. THE WOOD DASH CAN USE A BIT OF WORK, BUT IT IS REALLY NOT BAD CONSIDERING THE AGE OF THE CAR.
