Someone on the forum can probably address the complexity of this European car to my U.S.-focused mind. It's a '73 car with a round taillight rear end but a square taillight front end. The seats have what I view as the '74-specific style: the backrests have a flat panel above the pleated central area. The steering wheel is what I view as a square taillight version. Outside rear view mirrors are also the later mirrors. If this were a U.S. spec car, I would say it's been "doctored" a bit and I would probably doubt the low mileage claim. But it's a Euro car, and it's '73, so could this combination of round and square taillight elements have issued from the factory as is?

(I'm not a buyer here; I'm just a student!)

In the category of "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing..", I believe that all tourings, for the life of the run, had round tail lights. The other "74 for the US market" specific things then fall into place for a late 73 Euro spec car; touring or not. Later 73's in Europe had "new and improved" steering wheel, front facia, etc. In Europe, a new late 73 would be sold a few weeks after mfg in the Netherlands, whereas a car coming across the big pond might be several months "old" when it floored in, say, Dallas...and thus be reg'd as a 74 in the USA.

Y'all touring guys correct me if that's a lot of chaff...wont be the first time my history was off...

Cars sold in Europe are "titled" different than cars in the US.

'02s made from Aug '73 thru' mid '75 in Europe were known as "model 73". Tourings basically had all the "upgrades" except the rear lights. They retained the round taillights which are larger than the sedan round taillights.

'02s in Europe sold in 1973, were titled as '73, likewise if they were built in '73 and sold in '74, then they were titled as '74.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
