This is the last year of the roundies, 1973 BMW 2002 that made BMW famous, this car is in great condition and has always been a Southern California car from day 1 and has no rust. It is currently driven a few times every month since 2011. The car was restored approx. 10 years ago and engine was rebuilt soon before that. Previous owner who removed side markers and relocated muffler exit to center did the paint re-spray. Paint is good and shiny with minor dents, scratches and some fading. There are 2 areas with some very minor corrosion around rear side windows. Interior and dashboard are in very good condition with 320i Recaro Seats upholstered to match ’73 interior along with new Black weave carper kit from Gahh. Sunroof works great. Reason for selling, time for a new project.

Approx 60,00 miles on rebuild. Starts right up and drives very strong and is very reliable and has run cool in 100 plus outside temps. No oil or transmission leaks at all.

This is classic. I’m building a very similar car and am likely to be into it for more then 18k between the purchase price, 5spd, limited slip diff, Tii front and rear suspension, rear disks, paint, interior, and have yet to purchase, wheels, sway bars, stereo, and do something with the rear seat. Dsigner, you need a project? I would like to have my 100 plus hours back and not spend another 100 plus building my car. I’ll trade you straight across! Just kidding about the trade, but did want to make a point. Your car looks like a well sorted value. It would be hard to build for 18K today. I’m a masochist and enjoy the building process, so off I go to toil.I'm a little shocked that your add is so old? 18k seems like a deal. I don't know the seller. I'm just a guy questioning my own build at the moment. Somebody buy this car for 20k to make me feel better about what I'm building please. Best of luck on your next project Dsigner, your 02 is sweet.
