Les, you are correct. Was an ebay car. If it was manufactured in Dec 72 - is it a 72 or 73? Silly question.

All Service records from the 70's describe the car as a 73. Sold to me as a 73. Titled it and vin came back 72 ????

Thank you to all whom replied.

Mod 71 1972 Jan-72 Dec-72 2-580-114 2-587-307 7194

This is from the VIN table on 02 faqs.

Built in 72 --- So is it a 72 or can it be a 73 style manufactured for 73?

Any "upgrades/differences" on the '73 cars for the US market would have started to appear from the factory around September '72. Therefore, in the US, your car would be classed as a '73 model.

2 of my '76s were manufactured a week apart (sept 30 & Oct 6) in '75.

14 Dec 72. I suspect yours was built in early Dec.

They're both '73s by model year, as the 1973 model year began with cars assembled after 1 Sept or so. Beginning 1973 VIN was 2585137. The BMW factory went by calendar year production, not model year. Thus the descrepancy.

Your car should have the heavy Y-shaped front bumper brackets that bolt through the front frame rails, and the oval "loop"-shaped rear brackets (with rubber covers) that space the rear bumper about two inches out from the body.

Please post your car's actual build date (or drop me an e-mail with the info) as I'm trying to determine the average monthly production for US spec cars.

cheers

Mike,

Just saw your response here and noted your VIN (6 off from mine).

Here's my info for your average production calculation:

The BMW 2002 US VIN 2587096 was manufactured on December 14th, 1972 and

delivered on February 15th, 1973 to Iceland. The original colour was

Golf, paint code 070.

I have no idea why mine went to Iceland then US, maybe an Air Force guy's car.

    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
