Whizbang's 2002!

Recommended Posts

Picked up this jewel (along with another 2002 for parts that will be discussed at a later time since im going to build it too) for a good price. She's mostly complete. Engine is present and accounted for! 


Had a minor incident using a dollie to get the car home (wheel came off and ate the 13x6 mesh up from the inside) but it got home despite it trying to kill me. 


Game plan? Track car.  Probably M42 swap (the m10 with the 121 head will be used as a core for Lina's rally car)

the rust isnt bad at all actually. the car was worked over some and then primed but not painted. So, primer did what it did best (absorb water) and it has a lot of surface rust. That's pretty much first order.


Probably build it to be legal for NASA time trails, redline time attack, etc.

    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
