|Well as I have been trying to straight trade my 1984 633, it has come to my attention that selling might be easier, and then buy a 4 door e36. Having said this, I am still open to a reasonable e36 325i, 328i, 5 speed factory with a clean carfax and history. The reason for sale is I would really like to get in to a 4 door car, I am relying heavily on my 09 jetta anytime I would like more than just a passenger. Not a sob story, just some information.
For those who have already seen my FT thread, the pictures are basically the same, for those who PMd asking about a straight price, there is one included!
Details about my e24 633csiA:
5/1984 build date: North American built VIN: WBAEB7402E6728178
-I have the title in hand
-Car is registered in North Carolina, no smog is required on cars this age here, cannot say whether or not she will pass, she passed last in Maryland in 2008 (which after 25 years also no longer requires smog in state)
NO accident reports, no insurance claims (to my knowledge & carfaxs), all responsible parties owned, 4 owners since 1984. Started in Denver, CO, car made its way to Maryland where it was sold from the original owner to 3 individuals, me being the 4th. I have owned the car since 2008.
Since owning the car I have only driven her approximately 6,000 miles. She is my daily driver, and this number changes weekly now. For the first 2 years I put only 1000 miles on the car as I was traveling and living away from the car. Very sound, reliable engine, no abnormal noise, misfires, etc. Does take a moment on the coldest North Carolina mornings, does not hesitate to start ever, just in first takes the revs down to about 800 but doesnt stall.

-small 2 inch dent in drivers quarter panel (could probably be punched out)
-sometimes blower motor kicks out some heat (need to put a resistor in between relay and motor)
-small crack in driver and passenger side door seal (water only would get in it you pushed the hose against it while washing it)
-several rock chips but for a 27 year old car, not bad - might be able to see in pictures
-small scratches in some areas from washing/waxing/being a car that got driven
If I forgot anything I will edit, on to pictures!
Sorry you can search my name for in thread pictures, but I hate how it distorts the text to a point that it stretches across 2 computer screens.
Asking Price with all extras included: $4,800
Links to previously marketed cars; asking prices; price guides:
I know there will be some talk about the price, I have my reasons, it is an asking price not a commandment set in stone, I was trying to price it appropriately for a running, lower miles (averages to less than 5,000 miles a year since 5/1984), factory 5 speed, desirable interior color, and to push out any 2-3k buyers who will not take care of the car the way that it should.
I am a bmwcca member, and proud of the care that has gone in to this car. Please keep the thread clean! More pictures on request!
