Hello Faq Members,

 

I'm selling my 1972 BMW 2002 M20 Project.

Lil History.. I'm 4th owner, owned car 16 yrs. Has tremendous sentimental value to me personally... I've taken great care of this car, always garaged, kept clean, and maintained. Unfortunately my divorce and relocating have put me in a position to sell my most loved possession.

There is a PDF with great details attached.

I will run through the important details....

 

M20 drive-train from 87 325is.

M20 Engine

Bottom end rebuild including Piston rings, bearings, rods, oil pump and chain. Block was decreased and sand blasted. Replacement parts were of OEM quality, all gaskets replaced. 

Cylinder head was cleaned and pressure tested, new valve seals were installed, valve adjustment done to cold BMW specs. All timing components were replaced.

New Fuel injectors (Bosch Blue) were installed less than 6 months ago. New Coil, Cap Rotor, Plug Wires and Crank Sensor were replaced.

Motor is tight, runs amazing.

 

260Getrag

New clutch assembly, clutch slave, and master slave installed. Secondary reservoir installed for trans purposes only.

Driveshaft is from 325is, cut and balanced by local shop. Guibo mount moved 6" back o accommodate.

 

Rear Diff is a 3.91 LSD from a 83 320is, new inner and outer boots were installed and packed.

 

Box Flares

Are authentic AC Schnitzer 1968 stamped Box assembly with matching from air dam...

Body work is not my thing... Where I hit a road block... I can rebuild and M10 or M20 in a weekend, put a sanding pad and fiberglass in-front  of me and I'm lost...

 

Hoping someone can see the true potential this car has... I know I can and I hate to watch it leave my possession...

 

Asking $5500 obo

Cash price is very negotiable,

I'm willing to take deposit of 500$ (50% refundable) and take car off market. Provide buyer with VIN verification and receipt.

Buyer can pay off balance in increments, and must have paid off and removed by 4/30 2017...

Located in Lakeland Florida..

 

Trades considered with understanding 2500-3000 is cash. A solid E46 M3, E39 540i, or 97-2003 X5 would rethink the cash part...

99-2003 E39 M5 items anything except engine parts.. 

97-2003 E39 540 Msport

E30 Coupe,

97-2003 E46 M3

Firearms

Thanks for looking guys

Shawn

Thanks Guys!

Have any of you sold a vehicle then shipped it? at buyers expense of course....

I got 2 people asking me about that situation, if I would do it... One is in Rancho Cucamonga Ca other in Phoenix... Both FAQ Members.. 

Just unsure of the process and or risks.. I suggested they fly out for a day and actually put your hands on something you are paying 5k for... I know I would...lol

I've never sold a vehicle this way but I did buy my 2002 like this. In my case it was rather easy, although somewhat scary since I bought the car from photos, a PPI and many hours on the phone with him and his wife. After I received the PPI report, I sent the seller a bank check  for our negotiated price. Once the check cleared his bank (2 days), I contracted with a shipping company who then contacted the seller and made all arrangements to pick up the car on a certain date. The car was picked up from his home and delivered to my door 3 days later, New Jersey to Ohio. The title came in the mail the following day. I thought the process was pretty painless, however, I probably wouldn't do it that way again.

Shipping is pretty easy.  they are probably looking at at least a grand to do it.  For what this is, I'd pay for enclosed shipping.  I would also buy it but I want to live to be 61.  My wife would steak knife me in the middle of the night.  I have used U-ship since it's inception and have only ever had one bad experience and that was over a decade ago.  

LOL, for someone who has spent a ton on 02s only to sell them for less to people that mostly still own them, I would say this is a helluva deal. less than the cost of the transplant and fenders for sure

I purchased this car from Shawn and would like to sell it back to him.  He contacted me about selling it back to him, but he hasn't returned any of my messages lately.  I just don't have time to finish it.  I may just put it in storage and finish it later.  Thanks for having me on.

 

Maybe someone else would be interested. (I don't go on message boards for the cars that I no longer own, for example. In fairness, some of them no longer exist.) Have you worked on the car since his post, does it run, where are you located, and how much are you looking for? Good luck.

With all of the talk about shady characters going on in the main section, it strikes me as odd that this seller has gone AWOL. It could work out, but any potential buyers who may be trying this via PM should tread carefully. (Get proof that the seller has the car, etc.) I’m not looking to blow up any sale, and haven’t tried to interact with the seller, but don’t want to see anyone get hosed.

I just posted the car on craigslist a couple of days.  I guess my mistake was posting on here thinking that I could get in touch Shawn or someone that knew him because the car meant a lot to him.  I have a couple of people that are interested here, but anyone can call me at 334-695-6279.  I'm not running any scam, and I haven't asked for any wire transfers.  The car is the same as when I bought it from Shawn minus some bodywork and paint.  Have a great weekend.

All good. Just seemed strange to me. Good luck with the sale. That should be a cool car when someone with a lot more mechanical ability than I puts in some work. If you put a link up here, maybe you'll get more interest.
