They are out there. Of note, more than a few appear to have been de-Taiga’d at some point in their histories and now need to be re-Taiga’d:

 

 

 

Attached below: somone’s gorgeous Taiga. I’m sorry I forget who owns this!

 

Good luck,

 

Steve

I had one...at least the shell and engine.....VIN # 2781879  You can only tell the original color by the dash mount, trans tunnel and doors.....as Steve pointed this one out in his post previously...

The amazing power of an international Internet forum! I owned ‘02’s continuously since 1973, but I don’t believe I even saw a Taiga metallic ‘02 until the 1990’s, and then saw one on the Internet. Here you find lots of Taiga ‘02’s!

 

Regards,

 

Steve

Not a tii, but a 1973 Taiga. Mine "passed" in Mons, Belgium in 1978.

 

 

A shame, glad you were ok! Possibly a repairable car today...

 

Question: Les, was it common to have the vinyl black top on these cars in the UK?

 

I love Taiga!

The car was parked on the side of the street and a car struck the car behind me and then it was the domino effect. I think 5 or 6 cars were damaged. I was enjoying an amber nectar in a local bar. With all the kerfufle, I never paid my tab!!

Vinyl roofs were quite the thing in the UK in the '60s & '70s, and roof aerials centered above the front windshield.

While neither a Tii, nor an original Taiga car, here's my 71 2002.  The original color was Sahara and it was painted Taiga sometime before I acquired it nearly 4 years ago.  Until maybe a year ago, I didn't think it was a actual BMW color - I really thought somebody had made it Kia Soul green (the first generation).

Candy Apple Green homage to American Hot Rods.

A lot of variation in the pictures. Failing metal flake, monitors, old film...
