Hot tii parts on BaT

Bring A Trailer has a really rad fuel injection setup for auction right now: 

016c6a5b-6d7f-4469-a5c3-e2f97bac5cb7-191
BRINGATRAILER.COM

Bid for the chance to own a Camshaft, Slide Throttle, and Mechanical Fuel Injection Components for BMW at auction with Bring a Trailer, the home of the best vintage and classic cars online. Lot #93,173.

 

Can't wait to see what this brings in the end. I imagine any one of those parts individually is worth a fair pile more than the current bid. Also, BaT's dreadful writing is only getting worse as time goes on. "The belt-driven Kugelfischer mechanical fuel injection pump features an aluminum case and four fuel outlet ports." 

 

That sentence basically means: the fuel pump features being a pump and provisions for moving fuel. I'll be damned. Who would have thought.

"the magnesium inlet trumpet... requires repair"

 

aka, here's some busted junk...

 

"The parts are said to have been removed from a car"

Whose car?  hmm.

 

I can't help thinking that I could assemble an EFI setup for not too much

more than the $1k bid  (less, if you'd let me go to the junkyard) that would

run circles around that.

 

But, I know, that's not the point.

 

I do note that the front engine cover and linkage don't seem to be included...

The last pic in the BAT listing indicates the seller has some more goodies in his/her collection. 295B8F7A-2CCD-451F-B80A-161DAAC5AAB4.thumb.png.f064c19a3ea2a863ef0155e6bb9ecb6c.png

No doubt they do. I think the injection setup is pretty cool. My beef, as ever, is with BaT.

    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
