Year:: 1971


Make:: BMW


Model:: 2002


Price:: 2500.00


Location: : Los Angeles, CA

I saw this ad and thought I would pass it along.  A 1971 BMW 2002 in Riviera, over Black interior.  Missing some trim and has some serious surface rust on the hood, front bumper pushed in, but reasonably complete and owner says it runs.

 

NM/NA,

Steve-

You are looking at it all wrong. At $4500 it's almost twice as nice as it was at $2500. I'm just shocked they were able to do all the work overnight.

Has anyone seen this car?

You're certainly correct, James,

Better jump in before it jumps up to $6,500.

Regards,

Steve

Just my opinion here, but I sometimes feel as though this site and all its "valuation posts" glory feeds the flipper minded bottom feeders enough hype to try for the moon with prices.

Just look at all the crappy parts car asking prices as well as the individual items on CL. Such as when do used garden variety plastic front grills go for $100 each and who is buying?

 

But what do I know?

Also this car looks like it may have had some sort of front impact, I don't know the severity of the collision but if you look closely the front headlight bucket is dented in the shape of the bumper over rider and the front bumper sits slightly angled upward. I was interested at anything under #3k but it it's too much of a hassle above that....

They ALL do that. Bumper brackets before '74 were really weak. ('73 brackets are a smidge tougher than pre-'73 as '73 had to withstand a 2 1/2-mph crash!)

Wow! A whopping 2.5 MPh! Cool to know. Was it the same with the rear bumper?

Thanks,

Yes, that's why the bumpers on U.S. '73 models stand away from the body, unlike earlier '02s. For '74, the standard increased to 5 mph, necessitating a complete re-design of the bumpers and their support systems.
