1973 bmw 2002 roundie

Steve, my sense is that some sellers, even though they might make more on the sale, do not like BaT because they do not wish to subject themselves to the crowd sourced commentary and the high maintenance nature of selling a vehicle there -- multiple videos, ever attentive to the myriad of questions, etc.  Just my guess.  That said, your initial advice was spot on.  All I was suggesting was that given his reputation, if Terry Sayther worked on it you can likely bank on the work having been done correctly.  For what it's worth, here's the listing of the car when previously purchased on BaT:

Charles,

 

If you blend in the BaT photos with the current auction photos you have a complete picture of the car in its present state.

 

Terry Sayther has made significant improvements, up a few notches. The door cards still need cleaned and there is no photo of the headliner in the ebay auction. If you look at photo # 73 and 74 you  can almost smell the mold and want to reach out and reattach the falling down headliner. I can't imagine it hasn't been attended to.

 

Time to follow the auction.

Charles, could not agree with you more about BaT. But it is the go to site if you want to get top $$$.

 

Right now there is a Malaga coupe on BaT that will certainly fetch over $150,000. However the posts on e9coupe by the owner are typical of what it takes mentally and physically to reach the point where BaT posts your car. Without warning of course.

for some reason, it still looks like a project car to me. $40k.......really!

no bumpers, no waist trim (holes are there), seats needing reupolstery, ill fitted "new" carpet, well cracked dash, missing motor room side seals, etc. Hmmm...........

02Les,  am with you. Terry has done a lot of important stuff. But it still needs much more. Summer of 2021 it might have gotten close. Now, not so much.  Consider two months ago an all original 1600 that needed only paint, and I do mean only, went for $32,500.

 

Really nice drivers are in the $20s. We shall see. I am watching. Curious.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
