BMW 2002 friends,


I'm regretfully (but not too regretfully) selling my Verona red '74 2002. I recently picked up a '72 Bavaria (thanks Scott Barnes) in Malaga...not God's own Verona red the pinnacle of BMW paint codes, but it's a bewt so it'll do. As such I think it's time to let someone else have fun with this red 02.


I'm looking to get $6500 and it will come as seen in the pictures linked below with a few extra bits and pieces as noted in the informational document also included in the link. The car runs great, has loads of upgrades but does have some surface rust poking out here and there. All the major structural rust (rockers, frame rails, shock towers) have been repaired as needed. This was an autocross car when I bought it and it is pretty much still a fun go-kart with Spax adjustable struts/shocks. It would be a perfect fun autocrosser as I did plenty of runs in it while I owned it.  I have owned this car since Feb. of 2004.


Currently there is a pair of mismatched seats in it now, a black leather Flo-Fit driver and a brown stock passenger. Both are in decent condition, see the pics. I deleted the rear seat years ago. I have also taken off the rare 15x7 Weds Bavaria wheels I had installed and replaced them with some ugly BBS 13" 320i sport basket weaves with crap tires. The Weds are for sale but they will be $1200 for the set. There is a picture with the car wearing those wheels in the link. I also have an M20 swap set up that I had planned on dropping into this car. That is also for sale separately or with the car if you are interested. It includes an M20, getrag 260, engine and transmission swap mounts to fit a 2002, associated wiring and ECU and other random stuff.


If you are looking for a fun 02 project, please get in touch. Link with more photos, a video of the engine running, and document with upgrades and repair info below:
