Sellers original description:

This 1973 BMW 3.0 CS/M6 "Hotrod" has only 25k original miles from new, with no rust ever! Silver exterior with blue leather. This 2 owner California car is the most amazing 3.0 CS you could ever imagine. Owner #1 bought new in Mill Valley, California from Mellow Motors the authorised dealer of the day, he sold the car to owner #2 in 1982 and he has owned ever since!

The story regarding the conversion is that owner #2 was out for a spirited drive one sunny California day and had a BMW 2002 Tii pass him and leave him behind, he loved his CS but was unwilling to think he would be beaten again by a lesser vehicle so started to formulate a plan to gain the much needed HP he was looking for. After agonizing over this dilemma for quite some time, he opened a car magazine one day in 1987 only to see that BMW had launched the new for 1988 M6 coupe. He knew this was the answer to his problem so he set out looking for a motor/gearbox for this brand new model. It didn't take him long to find an M6 that had an accident and he purchased the car post haste.

She has travelled 2500 miles since being built and shows like a much newer car than her 40 years would suggest.
