There was a time when BMW didn’t give its cars such massive grilles like the one on the current 4-Series. To be fair, there still are some cars in the BMW stable that don’t, but anyway...

We’re reminiscing the good old days because we’ve just come across a 1984 BMW 633CSi, and boy, were Bimmers unquestionably beautiful back in the day. We reckon it’ll be hard to find anyone complaining how ugly this vintage 6-Series is.

Under the hood, this BMW packs a 3.2-liter straight-six petrol mill factory rated at 181hp and 264Nm and is mated to a five-speed manual tranny. The engine still runs and sounds pretty damn good given its age, not to mention the fact that the car has already run 117,000km. Look:

Now, this one may not have such a colored past like that other 6-Series that was once owned by Sean Connery, but it’s still a beautiful classic piece in and of itself. Check out more photos of it below, and tell us what you think of it in the comments.
