Can you see anything amiss here?


Recommended Posts

Hi group:

I am wondering if I should check out this car. From the photos anything seem........amiss?


Discription said 'automatic' and I can see that is not right

Front grill looks odd to me

Price is bit steep for what I am seeing, but it is a dealer so.......

Color is cool! Have not seen too many 72 mntgrn tii's

It is near my zipcode!

Looks to be a nice example from the photos. One thing that jumped out at me is the statement that it "Passed through dealer inspection" and "Dealer maintained". I wonder how many BMW Dealerships have service technicians knowledgable on 38 yr.-old tiis. Hope it checks out OK and you get the car.

This one has been beat to death for a year.. There used to be pics of it pre-resto. Rusty car it was.

Maybe Les has images saved..

So it was rusty, big deal. They're all rusty pre-restoration. You just need to properly inspect them, in person not in photos, prior to purchase so you know the restoration was done right.

The thing that stands out to me is the notch cut in the heater cowl for the timing light their is no way a 72 would have this cutout as it was not fitted of needed on plastic runner cars, unless it was added later and this one seems way to smooth to be cut by hand, you would have to see the car in person and check the vin but I would bet it's a latter 73
