Hey! I found an 1800 four speed for sale, some rust on the bottoms of doors, drivers floor,rear wheel arch, front of hood, and the worst part is the lower valance. Car is complete, has 70? 2002 engine installed, original engine in trunk, last on the road in 2000. Would make great little ti/sa type street legal racer. Please don't make me buy it! Email me for pics.

If you buy that particular car, make sure that the de-rusting will not cost you an arm and a leg.

But should be saved nontheless, if at least for parts. Post a pic here of it would be cool to see!

Sometimes there is a little patch of rust, but nothing.

I bought my 1969 2002 from North of San Fransisco. I took the entire car to bare metal. I only had a small patch of surface rust, about the size of a quarter. The car was original, with one respray and faded paint.

Myself, coming from the North East, I had doubts about rust free 02s, but they are there, saving you thousands of $ in body work...

my red '69 2000, from Antelope Foreign, in the Sacramento area; sure, some blemishes and some scratches but that's about it. All 4 door bottoms are excellent, same with the inner hood, inner decklid; fenders are like new, very clean nose panel/headlight buckets; floors, trunk floor and rockers are excellent; brushes are probably gone in the fan motor but all other electricals work fine., the key is to keep it off of the roads here in western N.Y. while road salt is on them for winter. I took the car out today, the car just purrs! I had the engine rebuilt, clutch slave and master renewed, flex line replaced and new oem exhaust system on recently, I've known the guy that did all the work for about 20 years, paid him $1500.00 for all., the guy was brought up on these cars ( 1600's, 1800's, 2000's, 2002's, Bavaria's, E-12's), his dad ran a BMW shop from the 60's through the mid 80's. Look at the '70 2000 Dave Lumbra is selling at "2002 Restorations", in Oregon, it's priced right about where it should be, great body but needs the engine rebuilt, they're very fun cars when everything is in sync.

Not badly, had some care in its lifetime. This is my 3rd NK and they were all rusted to some degree.

This helps make them rare.
