Car description

History of the BMW E9 Cabriolets

The Karmann company built the E9 Coupe’s for BMW from 1968 to 1975. During this time, Karman designed an E9 convertible as a model and presented it to BMW. However, this idea was not well received by BMW, as the competition had the Baur company with a finished 02 convertible ready for the market in 1968. A decade after production of the E9 was discontinued, Dipl-Ing. Jürgen Dreschel (as the then President of the BMW E9 Club) revived this idea and first developed a BMW E9 convertible for himself. Dreschel certainly received further inspiration from the first German-BMW convertible, which was created in Cologne in 1969. In search of perfection, harmony, style and elegance, he used the convertible top from the E30. This version had the advantage that the top "disappeared" completely when it was opened. In addition to the ingenious stiffening of the convertible, this is one of the great advantages over the German convertibles and the later "wild" convertible conversions by some body shops at home and abroad. 8 of the kit he developed were licensed. These were then immediately acquired by other Coupé friends and built over time under the leadership and control of Jürgen Dreschel. The prototype of the BMW E9 Cabriolet is also owned by the owner of Scuderia Sportiva Colonia, number 2 is in the Technik Museum in Sinsheim. In 1991, the old-timer practice reported in detail about Jürgen Dreschel and his convertible. In 2021 the magazine "Motor Klassik" will present the prototype of the Dreschl convertible with a unique Jaguar XJC convertible.

Jürgen Dreschel aptly called his convertibles: "One of the most beautiful convertibles that BMW has never built".

The convertible "Nr.6" offered here

Number 6 went to a BMW enthusiast in southern Germany. Over the years, with the help of a well-known local body shop and under the direction of Dreschel personally, another fantastic example of an E9 convertible was built. Scuderia Sportiva Colonia has made a name for itself over the years as a contact for BMW E9 and so we had the honor of purchasing this extraordinary convertible from this owner after almost 30 years.

The craftsmanship of converting the convertible is perfect and fully documented with photos. This convertible was painted in the color nautical blue of its time and even today the vehicle looks as if it had just come out of the paint shop. The three-part 16 "BBS rims are also painted in the body color. An M30B35 3.5 liter engine with catalytic converter from 1986 with 211 hp is currently installed. In conjunction with the 5-speed Getrag transmission, it guarantees fantastic driving performance. Bilstein shock absorbers and a modified brake system does an excellent job in terms of safety and comfort. In addition, a sporty exhaust system with 2 tailpipes is installed. A light gray, very high-quality leather has been used in the interior, which still looks as good as new today. A shapely Takata Petri sports steering wheel completes the picture The convertible top is completely in order, the rear window has been re-polished. The last owner only moved this convertible over the decades when the weather was proven to be good and for extraordinary events 20. - 30,000 km altogether, one of the reasons why this the vehicle is still in this remarkable, almost immaculate condition. The driving behavior of this convertible is terrific. The ingenious stiffeners convey a feeling of security in every situation.
