Ever seen a Dash-Swapped 02?


Recommended Posts

Went down the Rabbit-Hole of German Ebay-Klien for a bit... Because boredom. 

 

Besides the fact that he's asking 17 grand for a very odd 02... What the heck is going on with that dash? I can't say I've seen too many dash-swaps on 02's.

And it's hard to see, but it doesn't look like there's an AC compressor in there, but maybe? Bizarre. 

 

Anyhoo. Carry-on.

Funny,  the car seems unmolested save for the dash and steering wheel swap.

Well, at the rate that '02 dashes like to crack in the sun, I guess it's not surprising. Still wonder why he state's it's an original interior, when the facts are literally looking you in the face. haha. 

 

Guess it's more common than I thought, but this was my first one I've found browsing.

One of the weirder interactions I had while at IE was when a customer called in from New York for some suspension components for his 2002 (which he had claimed to have owned for a couple years).  I sent the parts out and got a call a couple weeks later that they wouldn't fit on the car (and why had I sent the wrong parts!?)  He started to describe the issue and it sounded very very strange; control arms were "bent", steering rack, etc.  I told him to send over some pictures as best he could.

 

Could. not. believe. the. photos .... The entire 2002 body had been grafted onto an E30 chassis/guts (whilst retaining the M10).  There were neat weld lines and everything.  Super crazy; and the kicker was that the owner had no idea.
