Potential Example, 1977 BMW 530i Sedan For Sale

Found this a nicely example of the BMW 5 Series lineage being offered for sale at Craigslist for $5200 located in San Diego, CA. As shown here is 1977 BMW 530i 4-door sedan was listed as a barn find and one owner example with 77k original miles on it. The car looks nicely show by photos, unfortunately the engine bay not included.

The car looks well preserved from every provided angles, however photos are limited and neither lighting not 100% ideal. This is not perfect but is a potential bone as a light restoration project, if you're one prospective of the seriously buyers, must see directly to get a real data to consider as a good deal.
