Please Read Entire Post.

Offering an E12 head with modified/opened up combustion chambers, freshly overhauled.

But no pressure test performed, was cleaned and inspected with a 10x magnifier

Thickness measures at 128.78mm.

Straight, did not skim during overhaul

4ea exhaust valve guides replaced

2ea exhaust valve seats replaced

2 new TRW intake valves

1 new TRW exhaust valve

8 ea new viton valve seals (new style)


Head was removed from a running engine fitted with 9.3:1 E21 euro pistons.

Modified Combustion Chambers!

Looks like the combustion chambers were opened up a little to accommodate the different pistons.

So now it will fit piano tops as well as the E21 euro 9.3:1 style,  Possibly bathtubs as well but I can’t confirm this.

Camshaft, rockers, shafts ect NOT INCLUDED

I have $450 into it, willing to let it go for $400 plus actual UPS shipping.

PM me with questions/shipping quotes.

    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
