Possible Free Rolling Chassis...

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I was recently offered a free 1976 car that has been left outside for ages.

Apparently only had 18k miles on it before it was parked and abandoned (and id believe it, judging by the interior!). I haven't gotten word if I will actually get it, but it is highly likely at this point.

I will end up taking the interior (its tan and in good nick, with a nice AC and original stereo and a good dash, so I'll end up selling on the interior since I dislike tan and keeping the dash for myself), and the engine, trans, and diff.

This leaves the shell with windows and the suspension components, rotors, hubs, etc etc. The bumpers are nice (big bumpers) but the wheels are shot (rusted through).

Now here is where you come in: I have no space for a shell so I will need to take what I can and get rid of the rest, which means either the dump or someone takes it. Having sat outside, it is a rusty shell, and some of it will likely be unsalvageable (the trunk lid looks pretty rotted), but a lot of trim is still there as well as good doors/front quarters. I have yet to inspect the car in person and am just going off of pics, hence my lack of detail. I would post pictures but I would rather the car remain anonymous until it is in my possession.

Any interest? All you would have to do is haul it away and you can do with it what you please. I'd rather see the bits go to good use rather then to the scrap heap, but I simply do not have the space for everything (I don't even own a garage, so I'd have to use a family members to take the parts out).

    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
