1968 1600 (new owner)


Recommended Posts


I was on the fence about purchasing this 02. The car use to belong to my brother, it was sold to my friend. Unfortunately the car lived by the ocean for several years. So the car has some rust (rockers, lower fenders, right rear window, and left frame rail).

The car is a pretty solid runner, the car has a salvage title because it was rear ended (damage was minimal, I saw the car after).

Car has the following mods:

Bilstein sports

Ireland Springs

Sparco steering wheel

New tie rods (few years old)

Pointless ignition w/ good wires

5 spd converted (shifts great)


320i rear brakes

Rear Ireland brace

Spare included:

2 barrel manifold

32/36 Weber (in box)

extra fender, left side

Tail section

Awesome parts:

M42 cylinder head

M42 block

Fully build M42 (built by me several years ago for my E36, later sold to my friend), had the following:

Schrick camshafts

Ireland engineering ported head w/ new guides

Pauter connecting rods

CP pistons, 11.5:1 compression

MLS head gasket

High capacity water pump

New oil pump






(rear end damage)




The M42:

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
