Absolutely in amazing condition, seems everything’s there except the headlight covers. Odd that a new car delivered to Zambia wasn't RHD.

My 2002ti also came from Zambia in LHD... Not sure what the deal was then, maybe just after independence the switched to LHD for a bit? Don't know, but in Africa anything goes, mostly.

Fetched my boys from school today in the CS. No seatbelts! Similar to being naked... It was still awesome, and they loved it.

I was watching this one for sale in South Africa for quite a while. I never would have suspected that the buyer would surface here!

Congrats!

We have a renown seat belt specialist on board, surely members could point you in the direction of BlueDevil? He can advise and hook you up, pun intended.

Looks beautiful! Unique color that's for sure.

What year was it made?

Mine was made in February 1970. My seats are the older style w/the recliner lever down low.

Thank you. According to BMW Archive: "The BMW 2800 CS VIN 2205653 was manufactured on October 23rd, 1970 and delivered on December 08th, 1970 to the BMW importer Canberra Motors in Kitwe, Zambia. The original colour was Sahara, paint code 006."

Great looking car in what appears to have been well-loved condition.
Great buy! Check under the back seats for rear seat belts. My 2800 came to me because the Senior owner refused to wear seat belts when they were mandated. She had hidden the rears under the seats. Any sign of retractors under the rear armrests?

Fantastic car. Love that all the windows are down and the driver's vent is open. I bet that car has never been driven any other way!
