Need help with price


Recommended Posts

I need to sell a project car and am soliciting your help in determining a price. 


1969 2002, no motor or transmission

Its in somewhat rough shape, and will require rockers, outer arches, and a drivers side frame rail.  There are pinholes in the spare tire well and will probably need a floor patch on the drivers side.  Otherwise the body is straight - no visible signs of being bumped.  It's in primer grey and it rolls.  It appears someone rattle-canned silver and clear - both of which are peeling off.  It's been garaged since I've owned it (2 years).

The rear shock towers are good.

The nose is good, needing just a small patch near the lower lip.

The grills are there, with one vent fin needing to be reattached.  The round taillights are painted, but in decent condition

This is a west coast car for most of its life.  I bought it from a guy in Utah that bought it from California.  The car is now located near Washington DC.


I've been collecting parts for 2 years for it:

m42 motor from a 1991 318is and the matching 5 speed.  Good compression on all 4.  Includes ECU, harness, driveshaft

3.91 lsd

Recaro fronts, needing re-upholstered

Rear seats from an e24 6 series, black, no blemishes

a/c unit and center console

replacement windshield

belt trim


What's a ballpark figure for selling?  I'll add photos tomorrow.

A 1969 BMW 2002, no motor, no trans in somewhat rough shape should fetch $500 to $1500 depending on the location.  The other parts have some value, the M42 motor and 5 speed, LSD, Recaro seats, E-24 rear seats, belt-line trim should fall somewhere between $2000 - $3000.  So ask for $5K and be happy with anything over $3,000, or just take a lot of pictures, load it up on eBay at no reserve and see what the market thinks.





1970 BMW 1600 (Nevada)

What's the VIN?  If it's below 1664760 it's a "first series" '69 with a long-neck diff, two speed heater fan, separate clutch hydraulic fluid reservoir etc. They were produced before 1 January 1969 What that translates to is needing a late style rear crossmember and drive shaft to use that 3.91 diff.

    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
