Description:

’72 BMW tii, One-owner from new, just pulled from a barn/shed. Car was purchased new in Charlotte at Performance Cars, Ltd, has spent its entire life in and around Raleigh. Owner was an engineer, and was Sales Manager at Miller & Norburn, the BMW Alpina specialists, in the mid 70’s. He then owned an automotive accessories and art business for nearly 40 years. A true enthusiast!

 

This car was involved in an accident in 1995, where it was hit in the right rear, pushing the car into another ahead of it. There is obvious damage from the accident. Car was being driven daily until this wreck. Car was put into storage with the intent of a restoration, but that was not to be.

 

Car is complete, and has over 200,000 miles on it. I knew the owner, and the car since 1979, and I know that it was truly loved!

If it were a carbed 2002, perhaps not a parts car. But as a ‘72 tii, definitely not a parts car!

 

Fjord, Navy Blue. 👍 Too bad not numbers-matching, 😙 but worth the (substantial) investment regardless.

 

Good luck with your sale. $7,500 might be ambitious!

 

Regards,

 

Steve

VIN 2762105 was probably manufactured on or about June 26, 1972 (VIN 2762108 was manufactured June 26, 1972).

 

Originally, this was a type-121-head, plastic-runner car, produced after (a.) the initial “test” of type E12 production (VIN’s 2761944 through 2762014), but before (b.) the final changeover to type E12 heads (VIN 2762373). Despite the absence of the original block, I’d restore it as a 121-head, plastic-runner car — if I could find a worthy head!

 

Anyway… I don’t need any more ‘02’s presently.


The Campy Ragno’s are a most pleasant surprise — but I wouldn’t focus on them until all four were checked for cracks, dents, and trueness: a cracked, dented, or un-true Campy is a hose rack or wall art… No shop which recognizes it as magnesium alloy (Elektron) is going to be willing to apply heat to it.

 

Regards,

 

Steve

Again, the tii engine in my 69 had 121 cylinder head, aluminum runners 2762332.  I guess someone could have swapped the intake from plastic to aluminum and used closely date stamped parts.

Thanks, Jim,

 

And even BMW dealerships were swapping plastic runners for aluminum runners after the leaking and cracking issues with plastic runners became evident.

 

We’ll probably never know for certain whether a few tii’s came off the assembly line with 121 heads and the “new-style” intake manifolds, aluminum runners, etc. The parts catalogue, however, shows the “new style” parts for the same VIN’s as the E12 heads.

 

Best regards,

 

Steve

Looks well worth 7500 to me, exactly the car I would be looking for if in the market to completely refresh one…early car/tii/good color from pictures looks rusty from setting outside which is “better” than that road salt rust…very savable.

Don’t let the fear of what could happen

make nothing happen…

I agree.  Looks good and would be tempting if I weren't already in the process of a similar project and lived closer🙂

Merry Christmas, Barney,

 

You are, without a doubt, more in touch than I with current values for needs-work tii’s. But a non-numbers-matching, open-to-the-atmosphere engine (see airbox), that has not been run in 27 years sounds like a big question mark to me. Of course, I also refuse to count Campy’s until they’ve been certified straight, true, and un-cracked — so I might be more conservative than most!

 

Best regards,

 

Steve

I’ve probably said this before… In 220+ thousand miles, my parent’s 2760007 never had any plastic intake elbow issues. When we put the car back together in ‘15 and ‘16 and installed the NOS ‘84 US E12 Tii crate engine, I decided to use aluminum intakes in keeping with the head.

 

All the best,

Tom

    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
