So yes , purchased through offerup and shipped to where I live in San Diego for $1095 , this is it. It has seen better days but I have seen worse and I am already eager to start the transformation progress . Original color Agave Green , Has a 5 speed (possibly g245) , Complete m10 , only thing is it doesn't run , and today discovered does not have a gas tank . Given the amount of bodywork and other things the chances of this thing driving again soon could definitely wait ; so the motor and transmission will definitely be coming out once my m52 for my e30 is off of the stand and the car is ready for Bimmerfest '19. That way I will have a lot more room in the garage for this thing and all of the parts that will be dropped off here soon . I do want to keep the M10 and have a set of Italian weber 45DCOE carbs to mate with an OEM intake manifold plus cast velocity stacks with foam opening covers on them , I want a full rebuilt m10 with raised compression , nice flowing head with 292-304 schrick cams .

 

 

 

First things are first , Tail panel/under section plus quarter panels are going to be cut out and replaced. The person I am getting the body parts from thankfully had a great condition tail panel/under section and quarter panel all cut out together off of another 02 , Should be getting those dropped off this week along with good fenders from a 1602 , a nose piece looking better than mine that will be re-skinned with either a walloth or jaymic nose skin . It happens to have a good trim delete which I am fine with . Fix any dents , san to bare metal , undercoat and paint interior since it is already bare , with zero to little even surface rust , not even where the pedals are .. so we are looking good so far .

Awesome !  And congratulations- I think.

 

Looks like it will be a fun one. 

 

Bonus on the 5 speed trans, those sell for what you bought the car for these days.

 

have you had a chance to see what kind of differential is installed?  

 

If you are lucky you may already have a schrick Cam (because of it’s racecar pedegree).

 

looking forward to reading about your progress.

 

if you haven’t already you can email Bmw to find out when your car was made and imported.

Thank you , I do not want to be sure about what exact trans is in this car yet , I still need to take a look at under it , i plan to pull the entire driveline out anyways given the point of it needing mostly body/interior work first . then we will see the 'craftmanship' that these previous owners went into to make it worth in there eyes of a Lemons race , of which this car allegedly did well in. I hope I do have a schrick cam already as that would be dumb luck ; already feeling lucky about the level of rust that is on this thing , and it not having a 4 speed PLUS it having a full cage regardless of if the welds are trash . I will definitely send those guys an email though , just send them my vin ?

Yup....tell them you just bought the car and ask what details they may be able to share about the car.
