Hi everyone, my name is Evan.  My mother owned a red 1968 2002 but  unfortunately had to sell it in the late 1970s.  She loved this car and truly regrets selling it.

 

I'm trying to locate a frame-up restored 1968 BMW 2002.  Please contact me if you have one for sale that meets my requirements.  

 

Truly, Evan

Evan,

 

This is not mine and I have no affiliation to it, but I'd like to point out that bona fide U.S.-spec 1968 model year 2002's are quite rare, not only because of survival rates but also due to production rates.  The 2002 model was introduced late in the model year -- approximately March-ish 1968 -- and 1969 model year production began in September 1968.  So a 1969 (as Mike shows above), or a 1970, or even a 1971 manufactured before April 1971 would give you a much wider choice of cars while retaining 97% of what made a 1968 special, including its clean, almost austere, appearance!

 

If you're also looking at 1600-2's (same car but with 1.6-liter rather than a 2.0-liter engine), a 1968 model might be a bit easier to find as 1600-2 production began in 1966.

 

Good luck with your search,

 

Steve

Ok, so it's not Granada and it's a 1600...but Florida is a sublime and extremely rare color that's really hot right now! ibjettin's freshly restored Florida 1600 on eBay:

I would buy this in a heartbeat if I had the funds.

I know of a pristine 1968 2002 for sale but I am pretty sure that Evan is not active anymore on here, I have commented and pmed him.
