  1. Glad you liked the car Chris, I think it found a good home!
  2. Updated price before going to BAT, now $33K.
  3. Thanks Mario, and paint work to this level is easily 20K today. The parts list on this car is just staggering, if I had a few hours with nothing to do I would add up the hundreds of receipts...
  4. Totally agree ..and even for those that do all the work themselves, the price of parts alone to do a car to this level could eclipse 40K. Obviously build costs and end value are two different things, but I'm hoping somebody can appreciate and see the value in what's here.
  5. Good to hear that Jim, thanks, and your 02 looks super sharp! I agree, it will sell, and a truly interested buyer will ultimately determine what it's worth.
  6. Marshall, I've been following BAT like a crack addict since it's inception, I know many of the buyers, the multi time sellers, etc, and of the hundreds of cars that sell each month you see maybe one relisted due to a non paying bidder. Doesn't mean there are others that also don't sell, but I don't think it's a regular thing. ... and even if they are as you say not following up, what's the difference between that and all the tire kickers both here, Craigslist, Ebay and so forth don't follow through on a "deal" you've made.. it's all part of the game when selling a used car.
  7. Thanks for the kind words, it's the sort of a car that needs to be seen and driven in person. If it goes to BAT the dual snorkel will drive em crazy
  8. Yes, the roundies for sure have a wider audience, so I expect it may take some time to find the right buyer. Those that know or have built one to this level know you could blow past the asking price here pretty quick. To the few that seem concerned I'm trying to rob a bank here.. well, I paid real money to get it and had no intention of ever selling, so I'll be happy just to break even, which is totally fine.
  9. Thanks Les, it's just a one week ad, not a auction. I've got BAT lined up for an auction, but that takes some time, and honestly I prefer to represent and sell items myself, but as you say BAT may be the best showcase for this car.
  10. Brandon, no offense, but I think you're a little behind on 02 prices, "really nice" Tii's are not in the 20's. I think you're mixing my car in with run of the mill 02's that may have a nice paint job over aging components, two very different things. The $93K Tii https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1973-bmw-2002tii-10/ did sell and was paid for. BAT is not Ebay, when you make a winning bid your credit card is automatically charged 5% of the sale price, so the bids are not folks just fooling around, the cars sell and are paid for. Bill
  11. Thanks for recognizing that. Yes, the price is up there for a 76, but for anybody who has done a restoration to this level you know the cost can be eye watering. Many consider a car that has been repainted up top and had the seats recovered to be "restored". This is not that car, even the silly items like windshield wiper arm motor were replaced with new items. Everything that could be purchased new pretty much was. Dash (new), gas tank (new), seat belts (new), wiring harness, tail lights, mirrors, trim, and on and on. ..and it is an asking price ;)
  12. Those are heat shields, and are actually on both sides on the tunnel. That pic was mid assembly.
  13. Wasn't aware I was soliciting help with pricing, but thanks, I guess.. You are aware multiple high end Tii's have sold in the 50-90K range? ..and maybe it's just me, but I don't see a Tii on the tail of any of these below from BAT, the 74 being the only full resto, and to be honest is lacking in many respects. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1973-bmw-2002-26/ 37K (partial resto) https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1974-bmw-2002-33/ Bid to 38K https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1973-bmw-2002-30/ 37K (partial resto)
  14. *** SOLD *** Selling my Jade Green 76 2002, because honestly it's really too nice for me. This 76 was restored by a meticulous individual in 2001 to near concours standards. The number of new and NOS parts used in the resto is just something you rarely see. From large items like the new BMW crate engine, to small items like sunvisors or seatbelts, everything was purchased new from Maximillion. All body trim, lights, mechanical components, if it couldn't be found new it was refurbished during the build. The car was stripped to an absolute bare shell during the process. The engine was a new crate motor from BMW, with 9.5 pistons, a 121 head, and Tii exhaust manifold. Everything down to the wiring harness was replaced. Transmission was freshened with new synchros and shifts like perfection. No stone was left unturned during the build and the car drives as well as it looks, like a new 02 should. There is apporximately 8K miles on the car since the restoration. Specs: -- 380 Petri steering wheel and hub -- H&R springs w Bilstein sports -- BMW crate motor with 121 head, 9.5 pistons, 38mm Weber, Tii exhaust manifold, w Crane ignition -- Factory 4 speed, rebuilt at time of resto -- OZ Alpina wheels with new Falken 615's. Also newly refurbished bottlecap wheels with new tires -- Authentic Coco mats -- Custom kick panel speaker boxes made of fiberglass done during the build, with Infiniti reference speakers. -- Factory tool kit, and jack Once completed the car won several awards at east coast 02 events, including best square taillight at the big East 02 fest. I've recently converted it to euro bumpers, and while they are mounted properly, I couldn't find a paint shop I felt comfortable with to patch and paint the remaining holes. Two shops wanted to paint the entire rear quarters after metal work, and another didn't seem interested. Not wanting to mess up the stunning paint that's there or risk a funny color blend, I simply filled the small holes with JBweld and painted them while the two holes on the sides have colored plugs. The small holes turned out so well I may go back and fix the plugged holes in the same manner.. Also worth mentioning, the E21 sourced recaros's have a slight bend in the backs that is really only noticeable in pics from the rear, but are perfectly comfortable for even longs trips, so I've never looked into fixing. $33K Full album of pics here.. https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/albums/72157708910486188/with/47995512821/
