Price: $15000
Location: Colorado Springs


Description:

 

Ive decided to sell my 74 verona no roof 2002. My itch for a 911 has become too much to tolerate mixed with having far too many cars in any case. 

 

1974 BMW 2002, Verona red w/tan interior. PNW car brought to Colorado in 2014. Incredibly straight survivor with 3 areas of rust: 8" strip in nose panel, 1" lower left front fender, 1" rear wheel well, forward low. Spare tire well was replaced with a 320i well. There are two areas that were re sprayed in the past (when is unknown to me): LF fender (no evidence of filler), LR quarter panel (slight evidence of filler). Floors (F&R), rockers, shock towers, doors, trunk, hood and rear valence are RUST FREE. This car was undercoated when new, that, coupled with what must have been inside storage, have rendered a VERY unapologetic survivor. This car is 43 years old. It has dents, scratches and the like. I suspect that if you are reading this, you know how hard it is to find a survivor like this, and that more work might be needed to get it where YOU want it. 

The headliner is rough, having been hastily patched in the past. Seats, carpet and door cards in good condition. Dashboard has two small cracks, either side of the gauge pod. Glass and switch gear are in very good condition. Trim/bright work shows signs of being 43 years old.

Now, for the good part: the mechanicals. I have been a technician for 30 years and own an independent garage. I have been working on 2002's since the mid eighties. Good, we have that out there.

I might be forgetting something in the following description. If it needed replacing, even in the least, it got replaced during the mechanical rehab. I suspect any serious buyer/inquiry will be followed by a personal visit, so we can go over it ALL then. I have over $15,000 worth of PARTS receipts alone, with no accounting for my labor (which there has been MONTHS of).

Cylinder head: 1984 E12 casting, completely rebuilt with all new parts. Hot tanked, decked .002" TRW valves, guides, and springs. 3 angle cut on valve seats. Ireland Engineering 292 cam. Febi rocker arms, BMW rocker shafts with all new hardware and eccentrics. Lash set to .008" cold. 123 Ignition TUNE (fully USB programmable solid state distributor, no pints, condensoer etc) with an OE coil, new wires, cap, rotor and plugs. Weber 38/38 synchronized carb, OE 2BBL manifold properly opened for that carb. Jetted for Colorado (lowlander jets included). Fully set up on a rolling road dyno.

Block: 1972 2.0 liter. Hot tanked, line bored, mains and rods .010" over, crank ground and polished. Rods lightened to 713 grams and matched within 1/10g, new rod bushings. 9.5:1 "piano top" pistons .010" over. New cam and oil pump chains & all guides/rails. Most metal parts were media blasted and semi-flat black enameled. Valvoline high zinc 20W/50 oil used exclusively. 

Cooling system: OE LR metal radiator has been recored, tanks soldered and dressed, new water pump, IE silicone hose set, 170º F thermostat and new BMW 5 blade fan (410mm). 

Exhaust: Ireland Engineering 4:1 step header (black ceramic coated) with full stainless 2" exhaust system. New gaskets and hangers. Sounds good, not too loud. 

Chassis: Both front and rear subframes removed and pressure washed. All (yes, ALL) bushings renewed with urethane bushings that have been properly lubricated upon installation. New brake rotors and drums with pads/shoes, new wheel cylinders. All wheel bearings and seals are new and packed with Bel-Ray grease. New rubber brake lines. H&R springs (1.25" drop), Bilstein HDs, and new strut top bearings. OE 13" steel wheels were media blasted, repainted proper metallic silver and new tires mounted (with balance weights inboard for a clean look). 

Driveline: Getrag 242 (4 speed) has been resealed and filled with proper GL4 gear oil. New guibo joint, and center support bearing. Diff resealed and filled with proper GL4 oil. New LUK 215mm clutch set mounted to a surfaced OE flywheel. All shifter bushings replaced. ALL hydraulics renewed, battery moved to trunk. 

Seats are 2008 Honda seats, but I have a nice set of OE tan seats that go with the car, as well as spare parts. I have a ton of pics, just request and I will fill your inbox. Im selling this because I have too many cars. Ive relived my teen years with this, time for someone else to have some fun with it. 

$15,000 OBO - Yes, I know, Im probably high here, will make the right deal for a FAQ member. 

Please ask whatever questions you have, I will do my best to answer them quickly.
