Our eBay Finds series continues today with one of the most rare BMWs one can find on the popular e-commerce website. A 1991 E30 BMW M3 Touring is up for sale and judging by the current bid, it will sell quite high for a 23 year old car, even as a conversion.
With a bit of research we found out that a body shop used a 1991 BMW 3 Series and an E30 M3 to create this unique automobile. In previous coverage of the same vehicle, BMW purists regarded such a chop job as anathema, but nonetheless the beauty of this E30 M3 Touring remains.
Here is how the seller describes all the work done to the car:
One of only a few in the world – BMW E30 M3 Touring tribute! All custom made on e30 US chassis using Euro e30 Touring and US E30 M3 Body plus Euro E36 M3 s50b30 engine. There is nothing left original on this car except for the floor, roof, side glass and rear gate. Everything has been completely modified – body, interior, suspension, engine, wheels etc.
This Touring has been featured in Performance BMW Magazine (April 2013 issue) It also won numerous awards at different BMW shows! This car can be enjoyed as the show car or as a new daily driver depending on owner’s preference. Once thing for sure, the new owner will not be disappointed and most likely will never see another e30 M3 Touring on the road! I have all the receipts and documentation from the restoration as well as the documentation for the donor cars (US chassis, Euro Touring Body & US E30 M3 Body used in the conversion) plus all the parts that were used. This car is registered, insured and inspected as a collector’s vehicle. I have clean title in my possession.
