*sorry if something is not correctly identified, I am not a 2002 expert!*

 

Next on the chopping block, is my 1968 2002 race car project. This is number 1661076, one of the very early ones. I bought the car, from a good friend of mine, who owned it, in stock trim, since 1973-4 sometime. This was his main driver for many years. Along the way, he decided to start taking it to track days, and was slowly upgrading parts, along the way. 

 

In the early 80s, he decided he was going to build a roll cage, and turn it into a legitimate race car.  This car was incredibly successful, in GT3, for many years.  For a multitude of reasons, my friend last raced this car on September 15, 1990, and the car sat in a dry, climate controlled, storage bunker, from that point forward, until earlier this year. 

 

My original intention was to get it back on the road and take it to track days, but with the acquisition of a property, in the very near future, all my toys are going away.

 

Enough of the story, here are some details...

 

Car:

 

1968 2002 - clean Oregon title in hand - NO RUST

 

Full custom roll cage
custom fiberglass front fenders and rear "overfenders"
fiberglass hood and trunk
plexiglass rear window and side windows

 

OE Turbo rubber trunk spoiler, in excellent shape, studs are present

 

Engine/ancillaries:

Custom, race spec 2.0 M10, built by Ray Korman, in 1985 
121 head - lots of port work done. "83" date stamp 
13.7:1 compression - 108 octane required
Dr. Schrick 336 degree camshaft
Alpina valves
Febi HD rockers
Schnitzer 20-4 front timing cover ($$$$$$$$)
Bosch "R" (racing) distributor
Dual Weber 50 DCOE carburetors
Reverse flow cooling system - Bavaria water pump
"Accusump", dry sump, oiling system
MSD electronic ignition system
Fuel cell in trunk, with four electric fuel pumps
Pyrometers on each exhaust runner

 

Transmission and driveline:

Getrag 235 close-ratio 5 speed (2002 turbo, NOT the E21 close ratio box) - rebuilt in 1986, minimal usage since
Good driveline
Tilton twin disc clutch and flywheel
Stock shifter andwafflesshift tower assy
3.91 LSD - 75% lockup

 

Suspension and brakes:

 

Close-ratio steering box

 

Custom built springs and adjusters, to make a fully adjustable coilover suspension setup (very high tech, for its time period!)
Bilstein sport dampers

 

Turbo front disc brakes with ventilated discs
Custom rear disc brake conversion, similar to the Alpina setup

 

Larger sway bar setup

 

BBS 13" Magnesium wheels - 8.8 lbs each WITH tire!

 

This car has been off the road, for almost three decades. It needs to be freshened up, before being exercised again. While I do have a title for it, the chassis has been pretty modified, and I wouldn't consider it to really be road legal again, but that is your call to make.

 

The biggest issue is, there is a broken rocker arm. The previous owner was preparing to put the engine in "storage mode", as he referred to it, by taking all the rockers off the valve springs, to keep the tension off them. On cylinder 3, exhaust side, *when turning the engine over by hand*, the rocker arm broke, and he walked away, never to return to it again. 

 

I'd love to find this car a good home. Ideally, someone that would put it back on the track. It has a great history and a TON of neat parts. 

 

$20,000 USD. Located in Portland, Oregon, USA. Will happily help load it on a trailer, if the buyer makes any and all shipping arrangements. 

 

If not sold by December 1, 2018, I will start the part out (regretfully), but I would much, much rather get this car a proper home, as a whole; however, at this time, I will *not* be parting the car out.

 

NOTE: Scheel/Mann seat, steering wheel, and "BMW" vanity plate NOT included with sale. Stock steering wheel will be included.

nice! glws

 

If you do part it out (and that would  be a shame and a tragedy) I'll take the strut bar and close ratio steering box. Put at the top of the list if you will..

I will make notation of that!

 

Bump.  Motivated seller.

no such thing as a "close ratio steering box"   there is only one ratio inside a steering box..

 

it is a "QUICK ratio steering box".  probably one of the most overrated and overpriced items for a 2002...

Right. When I was typing that I  remembered you saying that exact thing awhile back which made sense...

 

but somehow I messed up my choice...doh!

 

I know I'll never drop 2 or 3 grand on a steering box. I got morals

 

...Is it worth it? Maybe but I've driven a larger tire car with that 'quick ratio' box and it was like wrestling a Grizzly

 

hyper priced. like dash boards, mudflaps, tii struts, Alpina parts, bumpers....

Per the previous owner...

 

"There is no charging system.  Too much weight, too much drag on engine.  Wrong place for weight.  What we would do was; look for power outlet and park by it, or bring a little gasoline generator and charge it often."
