Good morning! On 3/19/76, my mother purchased a model 75 ( October 24th production ) Arktisblau Metallic 1976 BMW 2002 from Otto Linton's dealership in Devon, PA called Speed Craft Enterprises - Dealer Number 74800. Mr. Linton is a "Legend of the Glen" and has a great background in racing and dealerships in the Philadelphia area.  Here is an excerpt from Mr. Linton from Veloce Today:

 

"I started my own business as Speedcraft Enterprises in 1948 in Exton, Pennsylvania and built new facilities in Devon, Pennsylvania in 1966. Racing was good advertising. I sold MGs, Austin Healeys, Rileys, Mercedes, Porsches, BMWs, Lancias, Jaguars, and other odd makes which Max Hoffman and Tony Pompeo imported. I sold the business in 1984."

 

I spoke with Don at The Werkshop yesterday and got some information on dealerships in the 70s, but was curious if anyone in the Mid-Atlantic also purchased their 2002 from Speed Craft Enterprises or had one that was. I am now the caretaker for Sister Mary Matthew and am gathering as much information as possible on my mother's "first baby."

 

Thank you!

 

John

I had a 76 02 that was from Otto's BMW. Its still around and its located in West Chester, PA. I believe the dealership is now owned by Mike Vadasz.
