Weekend Quickies

1993 BMW M3 Powered 525iT - I've never seen this conversion done before. This is an E34 wagon with an E36 M3 engine in it.

This conversion was done by Strictly German in Atlanta, GA. They are known for dropping M engines in non-M cars and have a very good reputation. (You can see a Grassroots Motorsports magazine article about them here.)

This car appears to be in great shape. The seller says the engine has 235,000 miles on it, but does not mention how many miles are on the rest of the car.

Located in Orange Park, FL, click here to see the Craigslist listing.

1969 Austin America - As I've said before, I like Austin Americas. I have no idea why. (I once owned one, but never got to drive it) This Austin is a project car or parts car. The seller states, "Running car that moves under its own power as of last year. Brakes? Nope. But at least there is a hole in the drivers floor for you to put your feet down."

The $300.00 asking price is a bargain. You could probably get that money back in a few days by selling some parts on eBay.

Located near Minneapolis, MN, find the Craigslist listing here.

1967 Sunbeam Tiger - This is a one owner Tiger. How many one owner Tigers can be left in the world? The seller has every invoice starting from the original purchase agreement. He lists the mileage as 10,177.

I'd love to own a Tiger. I'd be very, very happy with a well used, well taken care of, driver quality car. However, if originality and low miles are your thing, you most likely won't find another Tiger like this one. It will be interesting to see what this car sells for.

Located in Lees Summit, MO, click here to see the eBay listing.

12/26 Update
- I wrote this post late last night. Since then there have been some changes to the Sunbeam Tiger listing... As JaCG reader 767driver wrote, "Please read the seller's Q&A and it becomes apparent there is more to this story. First flag, mileage incorrectly stated. Next flag, seller does not seem overly interested in answering questions from potential bidders or taking additional photos. This will most likely be a difficult transaction from the kind of seller that drives us all nuts."
Caveat Emptor.
