Madeira or Malaga?

  • NMDerek changed the title to Madeira or Malaga?

Presuming original paint:  if it's a Roundie it's Malaga; if it's a squarelight, Madeira.

 

Also, according to the factory parts book, Madeira was a 1502 only color; IIRC that was an E21 color, and since 1502s were made simultaneously with E21s, that would make sense.  

 

Besides, it looks like Malaga to me 😁.

Probability of it being a factory Madiera 2002? Probably zero.

 

In 50 years of ‘02 ownership, I’ve never seen a factory Madeira 2002. I believe the color arrived after 2002 production stopped, ca. mid-1976.

 

Email your car’s VIN to BMW Group Archives, and request their data on the car. They’ll tell you the factory color, along with the dates the car was manufactured and that Hoffman Motors assumed ownership (took legal delivery) of the car:

vin shows 1973 tii so I deduce Malaga, I think. My paint sticker is gone btw.

If it’s a 73tii, then most likely the original paint is Malaga.  Have you entered your car in the Registry section?  Curious to know the VIN.

From your picture and assuming it's a factory Tii and not a swap out then it's a 74, no 75 were offered in the US and the 75's were offered in other markets and none of those would have the big bumpers,

    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
