SOLD 3-30-2013...1971 BMW 2002 SF Bay Area

Recommended Posts

Bimmer Pilots…

After having BMW 2002s since the early 90’s I have decided to go a different route. I purchased this car approximately six years ago. I probably have driven no more then 7,000 miles or so since I’ve owned it. I have two other cars so this was my third car. It has spent much time in the garage relaxing.


Strong motor –numbers match. I’m sure the head had a valve job at some point. No smoke on de-acceleration.

Recaros (great shape)

New carpet


SS brake lines

Poly bushings

15" Wheels & new tires

65A alternator

Weber 32/36

I replaced the original pod with one from a later model.

I purchased parts ie. tires, shocks, etc. but I did not keep records on the fluid changes since I did most of them myself.

I did not have to change the cylinder head, block or transmission. The car pulls hard so I’m sure that the compression is even estimating 140 to 145 psi The steering box is a little sloppy but I think it can be adjusted with out a rebuild.

Plus I won the triple core radiator and header from the '02 meet two years ago. Great addition to the car and I had a new whole exhaust pipe and muffler.

The clear coat on the hood and top and some issues and a little rust. The rust is behind the right front fender, some in the front nose and some by the pillar. Not terminal, it seems like it was treated by the previous owner so it has not really spread since I’ve owned it. This car is from Sacramento CA. For the price of the Beyond 02 car you could have this car with so many more additions.

I'm looking for $5,500 OBO and will consider reasonable offers. Not looking for any trades and please no low ball offers. These cars are getting harder to find....especially the Round tailights that are decent. These days $3,000 wont buy you much.

I have more pictures if requested.

    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
