Dimensions/Measurements for a Straight body


Guest Anonymous

Recommended Posts

I came across an 02 that has been stored since what looks like an "off-road" incident. The car looks great from the outside/topside and inside. The engine runs - but the car cannot be driven because of damage to the underside of the front suspension.

Before I consider making any offer, could someone please post the most significant dimensions or measurements of the body undercarriage so I can see what's what. My factory manual is with a friend who is out of town and Haynes and other materials I can get my hands on do not have this information or I cannot locate it. All I am interested in determining is how out-of-square (if at all) the body is. If the subframe or control arms are wacked, I figure I can deal with those.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you to both posters. The axle to front cross member measurements ought to let me know if I am in the ball park! The body panels look straight - but the underpinnings do not.

    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
