so i went over to my friends house to talk about local body shops for my 74. he owns two 1965 mustangs (fastback which hauls ass and a convertible which is for cruising). anyways he used to own a 1980 320i "S-PACK"??? and it sits at his parents house unused. if i were to pick it up, what could i use on it for my '74 02?

the rear brakes can be used for the 250mm rear drum swap

the five speed can be used as well as the linkage

the seats are great and bolt right in

the front hubs can be used for big brake conversions

the front brake calipers can be used for big brake conversions on single line cars (early 02's)

the fuel pump setup can be used for a fuel injection conversion

the fuel lines can be used if you bend them straight and rebend them for your car for a fuel injection conversion

the mirror is a direct swap for your car and is larger

the rear seat can be made to fit... remove your 02 cover and horsehair seat padding and put the same from the 320i onto your back seat frame. It'll bunch in the corners but they look okay

The seat belts can be adapted for a three point retractable seat belt the rears will bolt in too.

The rear end and at least one set of cv's can be used for an Limited Slip conversion

Some have been known to put the e21 dashboard into an 02 (never done it myself)

The steering wheel can be used

Turn signal switch can be adapted

There may be more, I'll think about it.

Make it different... or just do it differently

1970 2002 RIP -- crashed then quartered

1971 2002 M20/02 RIP -- nothing but pieces now

    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
