No where have I seen mention of a 1982 325e with 2 doors.

Search results are a little squirrelly, since it was the first year of the e30.

I will know more when I see the car, but that won't be for another week, when the guy has some time to show me. He has no pictures to send of the car in the meantime. I wanted to do a little homework before-hand so I know what I'm looking at, but I'm flying blind at the moment... TIA (again).
