74 tii Clone (San Diego) (wanted?)

Recommended Posts

I didn't get in touch with Gordon in time to check out his car that was newly listed but once I got back into San Diego I heard from a friend about a 2002 that may or may not be for sale.

It's a 74 "tii" - meaning a 74 with a 73 tii motor and 5 speed transmission (if I have my facts right, I'm running on a wave of exhaustion right now. I know it's a 5 speed, iffy on the model years, pretty sure it's a getrag).

The owner is a local and mentioned it used to be "Bill's autocross car" or something similar. I believe he said Bill Holmes, but again...exhaustion.

It's inka (orange) and original paint. Recaros that have some tears, the motor has been massaged and has a very loping cam, Anzi (?) exhaust and very tight suspension.

Dash is cracked but it's a very presentable driver. Has Campy wheels (not sure which ones but they're gray and the tire size is P185/70R13 (I took a picture of the tires because they're bad and I wanted to check on prices of replacements).

Apparently all the motor and suspension work was done by Bill...

Basically wondering if anyone knows the car, etc. Not that I don't trust the seller (friend of a friend) but trying to find out some more info on it.

    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
