Feeler Clean 76 2002 with 5-speed


Recommended Posts

I've been offered this car and am considering helping the seller out since he's not a big BMW guy and doesn't know where to go to sell it... The story goes it belonged to a relative of his, she bought it from a seller in California 4 years ago and it's had limited use and mild "refurbishment" since then. Other than a 5-spd gearbox, pseudo recaro seats, a momo wood wheel and possibly some mild suspension upgrades, it looks pretty stock. He said he had it gone through recently, just to make sure everything was up to snuff, they did some maintenance things (belts and hoses) and the car is turnkey. He says it runs like a clock, handles well and breaks straight.

Trying to gauge the interest level and value before I pursue it too far.

Anyone interested? What do you figure it's worth?

While a big-bumper carbed car is not the most sought after combo, if it's as clean as it's supposed to be, it would be a good base to do some simple upgrades to.

Give me your thoughts or email me directly at zacm AT classiccarclub.com

If you're looking for a clean stock car with tasteful upgrades(although the seats would be a lot better if they matched the interior). I'd say 3500-4000 if he can prove it doesn't have any rust problems. I'm not a fan of the color but the paint looks very good, the car looks straight, and if it runs like stated, definitely worth more than 2k.

NADA book ranges from $6K to $18K depending on condition. 2K won't even get you the 5sp installed let alone a car. Get some perspective here, a Volkswagen bug similarly described ( no 5sp) would probably fetch $8K. A rusted out '75 or '76 that is complete & solid mechanically is worth $2K.

There is still a complex among 02 owners...its fairly common I see, until cars reach a certain status of collectability. It has just about ruined the early 911 market for the not so rich.

I feel 02 owners just do not see the true value of good cars. Many still think there are still good cars w/ good bits for 3 ,4 or 5 k......most comments I read make me think people tend to underestimate these cars...yet the funny thing is, ask these same people what THEY want for their cars!!!.

Ill stop ranting..

Oh...NADA and classic cars is not really a good match
