Fs Feeler 1973 2002 East Coast - Philadelphia, Pa

Recommended Posts

I am considering selling my 73' 2002 and wanted to put this out here to get a feel, mostly on price. I purchased this car in 2005 after almost a two year search. Here is what I know, mostly from the previous owner (I believe he found me on here trolling for an '02). The color is Porsche Red (Guards red) repaint over the original Ceylon Gold, Black Interior in fair shape, seats are okay, but will need to be repadded as the horsehair has crumbled. 73,xxx miles but odometer has stopped. I have put on maybe 2k miles since 2005, it is a garage queen.

According to the previous owner, this car was in a time capsule, stored inside a garage since '92 and was ressurected by him in 2004. Originally an Arizona car was driven to Canada in 1990 by the 2nd owner. Car has no rust holes whatsoever, some surface rust. Engine and tranny are in good shape, does not smoke or have knocks. The car is one stock down to the hubcaps and it still has the original solex carb and all the emission stuff in it and they all work fine. He replaced the front windshield gasket and lock strip, replaced all fluids, tires, he installed a newer radio cassette, replaced the speakers on the rear parcel shelf that were already cut out. He did a tuneup and valve adjustment.

In 2006, I completely replaced the suspension with new sway bars, shocks and struts, brakes and rotors, plugs, alignment and another tuneup.

I take her for a joy ride about every 3 weeks.

I know the respray hurts the value, but ceylon is a fairly rare color. I haven't really kept up on the values lately, am I crazy thinking $8-10k? There just aren't many '02s in good shape on the east coast.

    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
