Looking for a 2002 in WA/OR/Northern CA


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I know you see these posts quite a bit, just thought I would throw my two cents in. I'm looking for a 2002 in or around Seattle to buy. Most important for me is limited rust and a straight body. No specific year requirements, and I'd prefer to avoid Tii's. I know we're talking about 40 year old cars so I'm pretty realistic. I'm happy to travel a bit for it so anything in Oregon or northern California works too. If you have anything in mind or are looking to sell please reach out.

Thank you.

I have a 1972 BMW 2002 for sale in Boise. I have an ad on this site that has slipped to the bottom of the first page of the cars for sale. That ad has a link to the Craigslist ad with pictures. If you are at all interested I have 20+ other pictures I can send you via email that show the shock towers, engine compartment, underbody etc.

The body is in primo condition and the paint job is spectacular. Let me know if you want more info or photos after looking at the ad. I've pasted the link to the Craigslist ad below.

1974 BMW 2002 - $2700 (Ferndale)

I had dreams of restoring this cult classic but priorities change. I'd hope to see this go to someone who can really appreciate it. Come to think of it....who else would buy one of these?

3rd owner

Garaged since I've owned

Runs well but burns oil.

Weber carb

Body is straight with minimal rust. Only bad part is in the spare tire well which is typical.

Wheel bearings recently repacked.

Rebuilt front calipers

New U-joint

Front struts replaced 4 years ago.

Dash is in good shape with only a couple small cracks

Head liner is torn but repaired

One repaired rock chip on brand new windshield (damn it!)

All glass intact

Driver seat is worn.

Passenger seat is near perfect.

I removed and stripped the rear seat for rebuilt but never got around to finishing. Springs are intact.

Just keep in mind this a 39 year old car that has never been rebuilt but is a GREAT candidate for restoration.

Hi Kurt,

Don't mean to hijack this thread, but could you also send me pictures of your golf '02? I'm in southeastern WA about 5 hours from Boise and looking to get back into a 2002. My email is gary74tii at yahoo dot com

    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
