1968 Bmw 1600 2002


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm selling my 02 out of sheer necessity. If you guys were at the last Bay Area Swap and Show or the East Bay Loop drive, then you've already seen this car in person. Reach out if you have any questions:

CL Ad:


Early 68 BMW 1600. Vin number indicates that it was produced in 1967 but registered and titled as a 1968. This car looks completely stock but has internals of a much newer, funner, more reliable model.

Engine is a completly rebuilt 1974 BMW 2002 2.0L M10 motor with piano top pistons, Weber progressive carburetor, 320i radiator (blue bmw coolant), 320i alternator, valve job done 1K miles ago. Ireland Engineering Tii distributor, Header, New Water Pump, New Thermostat

Transmission is a 5 speed Getrag from a 318i, syncros are in great shape (no grinding in any gear). I believe the rear main seal has a small leak and the throw out bearing needs to be adjusted or replaced.

Rear End has the original long neck diff, with 4:11 gears (lots of fun), replaced gear oil 1.5K miles ago

Drive Shaft has new Guibos and center bearing, brake lines have been replaced with steel braided ones

13 inch original wheels with rare original hubcaps, wrapped in brand new Falken perfomance tires

Interior has been re-covered by previous owner, recently stripped out original carpet and layed down new sound deadener throughout before installing Esty carpet kit.

Paint is original Sahara and does not show any signs of respray (except for the rear where it had some minor body work done by previous owner)

Kenwood AM/FM/CD/MP3/USB stereo and Pioneer 6X9's in rear parcel tray.

All lights and electrical items work.

Too much to list, come see in person. 925-321-6736

    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
