Anyone have info on Tii 2781423?


Recommended Posts

A buddy of mine has the motor for this car and knows nothing about it. The car could very well be crushed but the motor is complete and Id love to see it reunited with the correct chassis if possible.

Its not seized and its all there

I got nothin' Steve!  The car's not in the tii registry.  BMW 2002 Club of Columbia's decoder only tells me it was manufactured during the 1974 calendar year.  My VIN cheat sheet is particularly weak in this VIN range, only confirming it was manufactured between January 24, 1974 (VIN 2781168) and June 1974 (VIN 2782059).  Maybe Les's database will reveal something...


Exhaust heat shield still in place!  Next you'll tell me that it has the wire hose-line clip on the top of the Kugelfischer still in place!


For these engines that may be true orphans, it wouldn't be a terrible fate to see them in a car close to their original VIN.  And it might, for instance, make an original-engine-lost 1974 car more "intact" to have a 1974, rather than a 1972 replacement.


Best regards,

Nope, I have no info on it.



2781410 was built 25 Feb '74, so the above motor would be real close, maybe the same day.

I have owned 2781410 since 1982. The VIN info that I requested from Andreas Harz in 2006 confirms that 02Les is correct, a manufacture date of 25 Feb '74. Does anyone know how many tii's were built, on average, per day?

    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
