Wow--a nice, original squarelight tii...great find and goes to show they're still out there, waiting for us to discover 'em.  Lots of great information on the FAQ, and friendly folks who'll answer your questions with a smile.  

 

Hope to see you at one of the 02-themed events--some on the east coast, some on the west coast and some in the middle, depending on where you're located.  

 

Cheers and welcome to the 02 fraternity/sorority...

Welcome to the madness, and the joy of 2002's. Your other cars are ones I admire and have never owned.

Don't count on the miles being correct as some others will probably talk to as well. And in fact it doesn't matter anyways unless your car is a unicorn form the original owner and he/she has documentation to prove the mileage.

Love the color and the fact it's original. Obviously a well cared for car.

Beautiful Tii, it looks to be a unmolested well cared for example. Welcome aboard the FAQ ask any questions you want here and someone will have worked thru the same thing. 

If everybody in the room is thinking the same thing, then someone is not thinking.

Congrats and welcome! Just joined the club myself and you'll find that the community here is an essential part of the ownership experience. Such a beautiful car! Riviera Blue is the best color and it looks especially great with those 'early' alloys.

 

Where is its new home? Would love to see it in person someday!

Thanks for the warm welcome all ! very nice, and similar to the 914World forum which is very good also. I am located in Connecticut. The car does seem to be only 53,000 miles according to the paperwork and all the service records. The prior owner had it almost 40 years. But I accept that you never know. Certainly the wear would seem to also suggest low miles. In any case, I love the originality. The one area I need to tackle is the rear seats which have sagged. But I love it, including the square rear lights.

    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
