1977 BMW 530i Callaway turbo

Post by kingforward » Tue Jun 21, 2011 7:02 pm

These E12s were the first "5 series cars" made and not many survive. This is the only 530i Callaway turbo car I know of...any others out there?

Going cheap...
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1977-E12 ... 257af7f513


1977 E12 BMW 530i, 5 speed. Very solid car that needs TLC. Has BBS style wheels and rare Callaway turbo conversion including gauges, exhaust manifold, plumbing and turbo (not installed). Odometer reads 129,270 miles and believed accurate.
Buyer will receive copies of detailed drawings and technical information to help restore and maintain the Callaway turbo setup, which may be the only Callaway E12 in existence.
Here is a link to a video of the car ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRBowTkAaRE

Sold on Bill of Sale with open title, as is, where is. Pickup in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
