The paint looks good but that say's nothing.
The wheels are not standard
Rust that say's it al
Look at the so coled A stiles front body panels if they are rusted.
It will cost about $5000 to repair it becouse
the rust never ends and you keep on restourating.
But you can diagnose it
If you look in the glove compartment and you take away the fabric material behind this glove compartment you can see the inner front fender panel and A stile if there is rust leave the car alone
For pictures look at by the head restauratie.

Greatings koen

with the exception of the normal rust (what else is new !!) the car doesn't look that bad. Of course I don't know of the mechanical condition. My suggestion would be to keep looking for a better example and spend a little more money (10-12K) you would probaly end up spending that much on this car after only minor repairs. Also, there is surely a reason that this vehicle is at a used car lot and not someones private garage !!!!! Keep looking good cars are out there.
Hello. I am an E28 owner and I am thinking about buying a 1971 3.0CS. I have taken some pics of the car in questions and posted them on a web site. I'd really appreciate it if you could take a look and let me know what you think. also, where are the usual rust places i should check and other things i need to look into.

I might be able to get the car for around $5700US to $6800US. I'd like to know what you think! :)

thanks a lot
