When is a restoration no longer viable? A great many people embark on restorations of classic cars and for one reason or other and often these reasons are beyond our control, we are sadly unable to finish what we have started. At Classic Bahnstormers we can be quoted as saying we never put good Bahnstormer down, where possible we always strive to resurrect these cars. This E28 M535i began its restoration several years ago but sadly the owners health has deteriorated and is no longer able to finish the restoration. We will be taking delivery of this car on June the 2nd 2016 and running a feature on its restoration.
The car is a genuine m535i with an interesting spec which includes desirable black sports leather and the much coveted glass (moon) roof. Despite not having been started in some years, fresh petrol and a good battery where applied and after some re-lubrication of the head had taken place the car fired into life and actually ran pretty well.
This is going to be an exciting project that will hopefully illustrate our dedication to saving these marvellous examples of excellent engineering and returning them to the road where they belong.
