Large Bmw Collection Being Sold Including A Tii Touring Rolling Shell


Recommended Posts

My Lemons teammate, Mark B, called the seller yesterday. The seller apparently has 15 2002s, two 3.0 CSs, and a host of other BMWs. However, his pricing sounds wildly optimistic. He's asking $4k minimum for each 2002, some stored outside and others inside, and he's unwilling to sell any parts individually from his parts cars. The two 3.0 CSs are non-op and need work, but are priced at $10k and $12k.

Given how easy it would be to disprove the seller's proposed pricing by reviewing recent sales of similar cars, it seems the seller is maintaining a position of willful ignorance. Perhaps he'll come around to market. Perhaps the market will come to him. I guess we'll find out shortly.

I believe this is the collection in Manchester. It is a warehouse filled with BMW's. Not a small warehouse either. I was in the building with Matt McGinn probably 5-6 years ago. Blew my mind! It is well and truly "Candyland". He has a lot of cars. Some of them were invisible due to parts being stacked on top of them. You could sort of burrow into the pile and find a car. I am not exaggerating, for a change;) Parts, parts, parts!


Baroque Angels, one really nice one, as I recall. M5's, E30 M3's. Assorted others! I was interested in the E28 M5 and the M3's, but kind of occupied with the Turbo and while the owner is a really nice fellow, I felt his pricing was way high, IF, you could get him to put a price on something. I think he is the kind of fellow who takes comfort in being surrounded with his stuff and is loath to part with it. That said, everything is for sale now, so perhaps he has had a change of heart.  


I hope he does well with it and there is a lot of cool gear in that building!

there is a similar stash to this in colorado, except it is all porsches, some very rare.  same story.  owner made collection, it is all "for sale", but he really can't part with anything, so all is priced astronomically high or he backs out of deals at last minute.  you basically have to wait for the owner to pass away and deal with the estate.

I think the owner is exactly as described in the comments posted here.  I spoke with him today and asked about selling any of his 2002s.  He has plenty of them but has not decided what the prices would be.................

    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
