1983 BMW 635csi

Recommended Posts

Vehicle is a 1983 BMW 635csi euro spec car that was converted to use the US spec engine (M30B35). Has engine currently installed but it does not run, zero compression. It hasn't been driven since 2015. It was built for and raced in LeMons and ChampCar in 2013, 2014, and 2015. Can be run in ChampCar, WRL or LeMons. The engine blew up in the last race and has been sitting since. Team got busy/lost interest. It's time to pass it on.


I do have a lead on another engine if the buying party is interested. It is still in the running & driving vehicle.


We raced at Gingerman, NOLA, Nelson Ledges, Gateway MSP, and Heartland Park.
