1975 BMW 2002


Recommended Posts

1975 BMW 2002. I have owned the car for roughly two years, and when I purchased it I had it shipped here from Reno, NV. The time I had the car it was garage kept and did not see snow. I did drive it daily April through October, including multiple 5 + hour trips with no issues. The car is in excellent shape and has very little rust considering it was in a dry climate most of its life. Last October I spun a rod, so I took it to Nikolas Motorsports where the entire engine was rebuilt, which cost roughly $7500. I have the receipts. The engine also has a Weber 38/38. (Engine has only 38 miles on it, the odometer reads 55,xxx). I was also told that the car has a TII block and a hotter cam, but cannot verify without cracking the head open.

Parts included in rebuild:
- Ceramic coated pistons and bearings (bored .030 over)
- Engine gasket set
- Rod bearing set
- Main bearing set
- Chain guide
- Head gasket set
- Crankshaft
- Piston ring set
- Rod set
- Head bolts
- Oil pump
- Rod bolts/nuts
- misc. parts

In addition to engine rebuild, I also had them install a new driveshaft and install new suspension bushings throughout the car.
Other upgrades include Alpine stereo system throughout car with bluetooth, Rota 15" rims with almost brand new Yokohama S-Drive tires, Ireland Engineering stage II springs with all around, dash cover (that's a cover, not the original underneath which has cracking), new window seals in rear and door seals (which need to be glued better) and the beautiful vintage wooden steering wheel. I will throw in all of the original springs and tires as well. I'll even throw in the extra wooden steering wheel, although I feel this one looks better, don't you?

The bad:
I tried to take pictures of all the bad with this car, although none of the issues are severe or major.
- Tears in both seats.
- Speedometer glass fell out, but I do have it, just never got around to putting it back in.
- Rear of headliner is tacked in (in pictures).
- Hood has a weird cracking rust spot, which was POR15'd by previous owner. Rust and cracking has stopped, just an eye sore.
- Misc. chips and dings on body (I drove it daily, as did the previous owner in Reno...isn't that what you're supposed to do?)
- Right Window sits kind of funky when rolled up all the way, an easy fix I just never took it apart to make it perfect.
- Missing washer fluid reservoir.
- Missing left license plate light.

I have tried to list everything about the car as thoroughly as possible along with many pictures, but would be glad to take any additional pictures upon request.

The car runs incredibly strong and drives beautifully with all of the recent work that has been put in


 Asking $9,800. (586) 604 - 6170.

    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
