Breaking B3S

Post by Dans » Tue Feb 12, 2019 11:19 am

I'm breaking a B3S saloon.... (I know, but there's a why) I'm only selling it whole as I don't have space or skills to part it out. It's complete apart from a few crucial bits; the engine and all ancillaries, ECU, Exhaust, instrument cluster are missing, but the alloys, tyres inclucing a spare one, interior (the leather needs some love as it's been badly refurbished at some point), gearbox and T/C, Front spoiler (with a small corner chip) are good. The body is straight, with no signs of accident damage and only a little rust bubbling through on the front O/S wheel arch where they all go.

It's number 038 which isn't on here, but is on the archive https://www.alpina-archive.com/?p=7565&nmt=B3-S-038.

I'm open to offers for the whole thing, it should be ready to move in the next couple of weeks, obviously on a trailer it's located in Iver just outside London.

To answer the whys, I need an Alpina engine for a project, the engine is getting a rebuild for that project anyway, so the fact that this engine is a bit shagged didn't matter to me. Rebuilding it is going to be expensive and simply not worth doing for a saloon, so I'm scavenging the parts I want and getting rid of the rest.

Dans - A sad end to a Alpina - but totally understood as to why this is the case.

How much are you asking for the complete car (minus parts missing)? I need some spares for mine, but not the whole car, so i would have to trade off breaking the car myself.

Feel free to PM if needed.

Not sure I'd agree with that, but I can partially see your reasoning.

Do you have any photographs of the car as it stands now?
