That appears to be the 40mm version for the 2002. There is also the 38mm version for the 1600-2.  I was able to identify it by the larger 30mm Venturi and size 100 pump jet at the bottom of the carb. The pump jet appears to have been removed and disassembled in the past. You can tell by the wear caused by a screw driver. Many of these carbs still have the metal factory tag still attached. Judging by its appearance, your carb may have been lightly used and cleaned at some point . The lid is very much still intact where the vacuum plunger has not worn a hole through it. I would guess it's still a good carb.

    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
