That early 80's 7 Series is quite a rare sight. Not too many of those around in good condition anymore.
And that one isn't very great either... Needs a lot of care to get back to decent driving condition

Wow, those are quite special! Very expensive to run with timing chain replacements and setting of tappets but definitely one of the best 6 cylinder motors ever made.

Wait not for tomorrow to do what can be done today, live each day for one knows not what the next day may hold.

I think they made probably about 6 or something silly with manual. I saw a white one many years ago on a car lot, they couldn't give it away at R40k. Most people don't know that the 745 was practically hand built.
