Modified 1974 2002

Recommended Posts

Hey guys and gals, I wanted to let you know we have another 2002 available for sale. This 1974 BMW 2002 has been modified and recommissioned to running driving condition after a couple years off the road. We think this car will make a great drivable restoration project for its next owner. Although the body of this vehicle shows areas that need rust and paint repair it is a very structurally sound car that could be enjoyed as is if the buyer does not want to undertake a full restoration.




A long list of service and modification has been performed to this car over the past two years. During that time work has been performed on the engine, drivetrain, interior, and exterior to bring the car to its current condition. The list of recently installed parts below should give a buyer comfort that this car has been cared for. Service, modification and repair over the last two years include:


- Getrag 5 speed transmission install (2015)
- Ireland Engineering fender flare install (2015)
- Ireland Engineering rear bumper install (2015)
- Ireland Engineering air dam included but not installed
- Bilstein HD Strut Inserts (2015)
- New Rota 15x7" wheels (2014)
- New Kuhmo Ectsta AST 195/50/15 tires (2014)
- European turn signal install (2015)
- Vintage Autobahn Flag Mirror install (2016)
- Raid steering wheel install (2015)
- Procar front seat install (2016)
- Matching rear seat and parcel shelf install (2016)
- OEM door panel install (2016)
- Carpet kit install (2016)
- M3 starter install (2014)
- Ireland Engineering distributor install (2014)
- Pertronix igniter install (2016)
- Bosch blue coil install (2016)
- Top End Performance exhaust kit (2014)
- Spark plug, cap and rotor install (2016)
- Timing set (2016)
- Oil change (2016)
- Coolant flush (2016)
- Valve cover, timing cover & intake manifold gaskets replaced (2016)
- Rebuilt driveshaft install (2015)
- Getrag 5 Speed install (2015)







According to the BMW Archives this vehicle was originally delivered with Polaris silver paint. The car was repainted in blue at one point and is now in a mostly primer finish. The fender flares, rear bumper, and lower panels were painted with a satin black to clean up the look of the vehicle. This was a quick paint and by no means a complete job. Please remember this vehicle is over 40 years old so it does show rust, bubbling, rock chips, scratches and touch ups. As shown in the photos the interior is in very nice condition with no rips or tears in the seats. The headliner and dash board could stand to be replaced during a restoration process.






After performing all of these repairs this car is in usable condition but in need of further refurbishment to be a reliable daily driver. The transmission shifts smoothly and does not have any synchromesh issues, the engine does not smoke and the rear differential does not whine. While this car is on its way to being a nice resto-mod or project car, the buyer should assume that many more components will need repair before it is complete. The car is available for inspection in the Portland, Oregon metro area. Please contact us at Sales@VintageAutobahn.com if you are interested in the car, need more info on the car, or would like to see more photos. We are asking $5,000 for this car on Craigslist and eBay but would be happy to sell it for less to a faq member.

    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
