76' 2002 Wagon concept!

So I was photoshopping a picture of my 76' 02 to post on social media and I thought I'd want to see what it would look like if they had made wagons of these beauties. So there you go! I kind of like it, but I thought I would much rather here what you guys think about it, and if you would have one!

Whenever you are building a station wagon out of a sedan, step one is to visit the wrecker and pick out a nice tailgate. Design-wise, the rest will solve itself. BMW wagons got a lot easier to fabricate when BMW started making factory ones and you could get the tailgates, etc.

 

Early days, it was VW squarebacks and Volvo for tailgates.

This one doesn’t even have a tailgate. It’s more like a limo

Yeah, they just stuck a front windshield on the trunk!  😋

Yes, but that's a fastback, not a squareback.

Unlike BMWs, their notchback was the rare one; never offered for sale in the US.

I’ve always wanted a Notch, and Type 34 Ghia.

Someone (on the west coast I think ) had a partially finished ‘02 wagon for sale a while back. Seems like it was agave with no glass in it. Maybe a shop owner? I’ve often thought a wagon build would be a fun/challenging experience.

In BMW nomenclature, it's a Touring. The same name applied to BMW wagons after the 2002s

When my Touring was originally titled in the UK, it was called an Estate. Just to confuse matters further.
