Malaise BMW E12 Power Shortage Remedied By Judicious Application Of Sprint Car 427

Illustration for article titled Malaise BMW E12 Power Shortage Remedied By Judicious Application Of Sprint Car 427

Remember that 3-Series BMW with a V12 swap? We liked that car quite a bit, but now we've found one of the cleanest engine-swapped BMWs yet, and for some incomprehensible reason nobody wanted to buy it for $24,000! It's got a Chevy small-block stroked to 427 cubes and equipped with all manner of hop-up madness (including a carburetor, which is why this car isn't a 570i), a Tremec 5-speed, and a Jaguar/Porsche/BMW rear suspension with outboard brakes. Thanks to rjones for the tip! [eBay, via Bring A Trailer]

I wonder if somewhere out there, there's a 1969 Chevy Caprice with a 3 litre Beemer 6 in it, you know, to balance things out.
