Might look a bit rough but this is a rare vehicle. It's a factory E21 323i JPS. There was only 70 of these delivered to Australia!

Due to the arcane nature of BMW’s ordering system, the paper trail for the JPS goes cold very quickly, leaving quite a bit of speculation as to which cars are real and which are replicas. BMW rejected Munich’s standard option packs and came up with the 323i Motorsport Special Edition, with a 5 speed overdrive gearbox, Motorsport suspension (shorter stiffer springs plus Bilstein shock absorbers), BBS 13" wheels, a sports steering wheel, Recaro sports front seats with anthracite trim on all seats, M-Technic spoilers front and rear (rear a delete option) and a limited-slip diff.
When the sponsorship of the BMW Super Sedan and Touring Car race team, run by Frank Gardner, was switched to low-tar coffin nails, BMW released this JPS Special Edition. Effectively, this model was the Motorsport Special Edition given a new lease of life, with black paintwork, actually bronze tinted windows and a wooden gear knob. On arrival in Australia the JPS cars went to Gardner’s workshop where the gold stripes, JPS C-Pillar badges, JPS wheel centre caps, JPS steering wheel boss and JPS dash plaque were all added. The BBS wheels had the centre gold anodised or, as an option, replaced with 15" gold centre Simmons BBS lookalike wheels.
