1989 BMW 320i Convertible For Sale by Auction

H&H Classics - The Pavilion Gardens Buxton, Wed, 8th Dec 2021

Estimate £10, 000 - £12, 000

Registration No: G353 RNA
Chassis No: WBABA12070EB66284
MOT: November 2022

The subject of an M52 engine conversion and full respray by 'Big Bavarian Beauties' at a cost of £12, 575. 00.

Riding on genuine 16-inch staggered Alpina alloy wheels.

Fitted with an extremely rare factory hardtop.

Said to be 'very quick' and 'drives extremely well'.

Far, far rarer than its saloon siblings, just 32, 686 examples of BMW’s iconic E30-generation 320i Convertible were made (with most being to
LHD specification). Powered by a 1991cc SOHC straight-six engine allied to either manual or automatic transmission, the four-seater droptop was reputedly capable of over 120mph.

Finished in Schwarz black with black leather upholstery and matching factory hardtop, ‘G353 RNA' is a UK RHD example and was purchased by the vendor in May 2016. Sharing a garage with more than fifteen other classics, the four-seater was treated to a no expense spared Alpina-inspired conversion in April 2017, with all work carried out by marque specialists 'Big Bavarian Beauties' of Suffolk. An invoice on file for £18, 625. 00 details all work carried out which included the supply and fitment of a BMW M52 engine (including bespoke gearbox, engine and prop shaft mounts), new water pump, thermostat, radiator and an electric cooling fan. The increased output of the replacement engine is transmitted through a solid flywheel, sachs clutch and limited slip differential, whilst much of the front suspension was also replaced and improved with the fitment of E46 power assisted steering. Aesthetically, 'G353 RNA' benefits from a full respray in Schwarz black, complemented by an original Alpina front air-dam and decals. Original staggered Alpina 16-inch alloy wheels were sourced at a cost of £2500. 00 and a very scarce factory hardtop provides protection from the elements, purchased at a cost of £3000. 00.

Pleasingly retaining its factory-fitted leather interior complete with Alpina steering wheel and gear knob, the convertible is said to have covered less than 1, 000 miles since the work was carried out. Described by the vendor as being in ‘very good overall’ condition with regard to its engine, gearbox, electrical equipment, interior trim, bodywork and paintwork, this increasingly collectable E30 drop-top has covered 113, 000 miles from new and is offered for sale with a UK V5c document (showing six previous keepers) and MOT certificate valid until April 2022.
