This purpose-built 1975 BMW CSL race car was built to FIA specifications using an original chassis in white from BMW Motorsport. The chassis originally was purchased by Vasek Polak from BMW Motorsport. It was then sold to Rug Cunningham amid a plethora of other parts and spares. Upon the death of Mr. Cunningham, the spares were sold to Mr. Schmitt along with chassis number 2275988. Soon after purchasing the spares and #988 he sold on #988 to another collector and set about creating the 1975 CSL FIA Tribute racer. The motor was built by Bill Watson at Road Rockets using a 3.5-liter block with a S38 4-valve modern cylinder head and a set of original headers. The engine itself has around 14 hours of running time on the clock and is around half-way through its life cycle. The hours on the chassis are limited to shakedown time only. The engine has a reported 500hp and the total weight of the car is around an impressively light 1800lbs. It is not often that a vintage race car built from a new fresh factory OEM chassis comes up for sale. Especially one of this caliber and specification. This is certainly one of the most attractive qualities of this vehicle to any vintage racing enthusiast.

The chassis number assigned to this car was given to Mr. Schmitt by former BMW Motorsport technician Rudi Gmeiner. Mr. Gmeiner consulted the original chassis numbers assigned to the CSL race cars in period and discovered a chassis number that had not previously been used by BMW Motorsport. That number is 2275994. By using the Sebring winning car #987 as a reference, Mr. Schmitt and his build team were able to faithfully create a car that will easily qualify for most all vintage racing events. This turnkey vintage racing entry is truly one of a kind. A new/unused chassis platform with a professional build and all of the documentation to go along with it is certainly a rare find not to be passed up.
