'76 2002 Verona Red/black 4Spd $6200 Obo


Recommended Posts

Selling the house and some projects have to go.

I bought this 2002 about a year ago. A month after I bought it, the engine spun a rod bearing. Since then much of the car's mechanicals has been overhauled. Here's the run down

-last production run 1976 2002

-factory verona red on black interior

-factory sunroof, 4-speed, factory a/c (not hooked up but included)

-E21 turbine wheels including spare

What's been redone over the last couple months:

-newer BMW factory rebuilt M10 2.0 with flat top pistons and E21 head.

-new clutch, flywheel, pressure plate, throwout and pilot bearings

-completely new ignition system

-converted to electric fuel pump

-weber 32/36 downdraft carb

-Stahl performance 4-to-1 header

-newer factory downpipe in great shape

-brand new factory muffler

-newly rebuilt, warranted front calipers

-hard brake lines replaced as needed, all soft lines replaced with braided stainless lines

-new rotors, pads, wheel cylinders

-new wheel bearings

The interior is in good shape. The door cards and rear seat are excellent. The front seats are very good, carpet is new. Dash has typical cracks and headliner could use a little love. The body has had an older respray of the factory color done and would need to be done if you are restoring the car.

And now everyone's favorite subject: the RUST:

The chassis is completely straight and from inspection is obvious was never in a serious accident of any kind, which is harder and harder to find. Also, all structural areas are very solid. Body has small patches of surface rust; lower lip on front bumper, driver's side corner marker and under hood on fenders, front outer rocker panels, rear driver's fender, rear trunk. Most spots the size of a penny or smaller. Passenger floor pan has been repaired already, driver's side pretty good but has one small hole about diameter of pencil. Spare tire well has small hole in bottom about the same size. Engine bay is extremely clean for an original car; only some surface rust under battery tray and brake fluid reservoir, which is to be expected. The battery tray has been replaced with a new one. Front shock towers 100% solid and in great shape. Trunk in very good shape with newer fuel tank and original shock towers in excellent condition.

Overall the car is a great candidate for a "classic daily", and easily worth restoring if you care to invest in body work and a little interior. The asking price is what it is considering the amount of work put into this car over the last month. There are many selling for 4k...but that's how much I paid for the car and I learned the hard way what that buys you.

Email me for pics this new uploader isn't working for me.
