'74 For Sale - $7,000.00


Recommended Posts

FOR Sale: 1974 BMW 2002, Polaris.

Daily driver for the past 8 years – certainly not a concours competitor but has been maintained and cared for.  Interior needs work (see below – I have all missing trim pieces) – rear seat has been deleted (cover was too far gone to attempt to save).


Much of the work needed is cosmetic – there is a transmission issue that should be addressed sooner rather than later (see below)


The good:

1.     Solid body everywhere

2.     New tie rods, bushings, and control arm. Stainless Ireland exhaust; re-cored radiator and new thermostat, water pump, coil and Ireland distributor installed

3.     5 spd transmission w/ limited slip diff and oversized front brakes.  Upgraded short throw shift kit

4.     sound deadening throughout interior of car

5.     working sunroof, crack free dash

6.     current VA safety inspection

7.     Rear seal, guibo refreshed. Stainless steel brake lines installed


Needs additional work:

1.     Pilot bearing in transmission may need replacing

2.     Front seats need to be covered or reupholstered; interior trim needs to be installed (I have these in a box)

3.     Struts and shocks could/should be replaced ?  Not really sure but I have replacements

4.     Driving lights need to be wired in

5.     Bumpers need to be bolted in and covers and corners need to be reinstalled (I have those)

6.     Fan motor needs to be adjusted so it doesn’t rattle when operating

7.     Dash underpanels need to be installed (I have those)

8.     Should replace sunroof seals (I have those)

9.     Fender reflectors need to be reinstalled (have those)


II'm sure there are some other things that I've missed and I'm sure that forum members in the DMV will chime in.  In any case, you can reach me at bmw20024sale@yahoo.com or thru this forum or via text.  Pics are sitting in Dropbox - let me know and I'll send you the link.

    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
