Thinking of selling my NK

Recommended Posts

This car has been a labor of love for me starting with the chase about a year ago. Once I saw it, I knew I had to have it, but since then lust has worn off and reality has set in. I don't have the necessary space or time to give this car the attention it deserves, and it hurts me to just let it sit there. The car is currently taking up the garage space of my 2002 Touring, and one has to go...


The car is a 67 2000A in original Bristol grey with oxblood/black interior. It's SUPER original, 99% all there. The engine bay is all stock, interior hasn't been modified besides some under-seat speaker boxes I took out, and the body is original as well. The main issue is rust. The car sat outside for a few years with no rear window seal lockstrip and so the floors pooled up with water until rust holes formed and the water drained. Most panels have some surface rust, and some panels have holes. This doesn't bother me, as I like the original/rat rod look, but for a full restoration it would obviously need attention. The car wears resprayed Bristol paint, but there are some primer spots, fortunately also grey.


The good news is, the car can be a runner with minimal work! It ran when I bought it (6 months ago), but poorly, because there is no exhaust after the header. No backpressure = no idle. Funny story, the car had the transmission completely rebuilt (over $1k) about a year ago, and the shop lost the exhaust! I was going to have a custom exhaust built for it, but I haven't gotten around to it. To be a decent driver, you'll have to go through the brakes, get new tires, check all the bushings, etc - the usual stuff. In a weekend's time this car could be moving under its own power again. It does leak a bit, so that will need attention. Overall, the car is a good project for someone, and that someone is not me.


See more photos and read more about the car here: http://thepaddock.xyz/blog/2017/3/17/bristol-barn-find-1967-bmw-2000

FYI, since the photos have been taken, I have given it a comprehensive cleaning.


The car is located in Seattle, WA. While this is just a feeler, for the right offer I'll let her go. I just want to see this car get the love it deserves - it's a super rare car and it needs a special caretaker. It's one of just a few NKs in Washington, and the only one in this spec. If you know about NKs, you know how special this car is.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. After some contemplation, I'm thinking I'll make room to store it and get to the project later. It's too special of a car to let go.


Good for you.  Take your time and enjoy the project

    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
