  1. How does the headliner look, releasing anywhere?
  2. Sacramento your closest airport?
  3. I'd be interested. What do you have for mileage documentation? How long have you owned it?
  4. To go further on pricing, I have looked at at least 10 cars, 4 in person and 6 in detailed photos. I bought 3 of those cars. The 74 and 76 models were in the $14k range and were very good starting points for a restoration, both very good drivers and rust free. The '74 Tii was bought for $22,500. In my opinion it was also a good starting point for a restoration. It was a nice enough car and a good driver. The 2 previous owners had done some things I would have had to un-do and the car needed a total paint job. I guess my point is you can buy good driver quality square tail light cars in the $14k to $24k range all day long. If you send the cracked dash to Just Dashes, buy and recondition Recaros, have a quality over all paint job done you are probably pushing $35k invested. Bill did a great job in representing this car. I drove from Fort Worth to KC with a trailer and a cashier's check. I would have gone home empty handed if it had not been as nice as described. The value of a car is always established by what one is wiling to pay. I wanted a really nice 02. I would have ended up building one but I'm not sure I could have built one as nice as what I just bought.
  5. On her way to a new home in TX. This is the 4th 2002 I've bought in the last 18 months. Looking for the right car. I think I found it. Best driving 43 year old car I've ever been in. Now I need to decide what to do with my Chamonix '76 model.
  6. I sent you a PM. I'll send my phone number as well.
  7. The white car is not lowered and I did not have a problem with any contact. I like the way they look and the car handled well with them. The ride was more harsh with the 195-50 series tires. I prefer the ride of 13" tires and wheels. These wheels came to me on a Tii I bought. That car was lowered and there was some fender contact on significant dips in the road. The wheels had just been installed on the Tii. The fenders on the Tii were not rolled or modified. I put some 14" bottle caps on this car and problem solved.
  8. These wheels were on a car I bought. I changed to Panasports. These are 15" x 7" with 195-50-15 Dunlop tires. The tires have very few miles on them. These are not true "Alpina" wheels but they are a high quality and look nice. They do not have any curb rash. I have a complete set of lug nuts for them. One wheel center is missing but they are available on e-bay and I'm sure from other sources. I believe they are a 60mm diameter. I'd rather not ship them but I can if needed. I suppose I'd wrap each wheel and send 4 pieces with lugs packaged with one rim.
  9. I'm looking at buying a set of SS bumpers for $1,100. If your's is re-chromed steel it might be good to have as opposed to SS. I'm just guessing, maybe more like $650 or $700. No offense, just a guess.
  10. I’ve been driving both cars and both are great. The 76 has a much tighter ride. The Tii has the normal door rattles and little irritating things that come with a 45 year old car. I just need to pull the door panels and address it. The Tii has small bumpers, a 5 speed and lowering springs. Stock otherwise. The 28 year old paint job has held up very well but it is showing its age. If I were to paint and detail both cars they’d be extremely nice. I’m semi retired so maybe I need to dedicate my free time to paint work.
  11. I moved the wheels to my 76 and no issues. It is stock ride height. I guess if I hammered a big dip they would not clear the fenders. Under normal driving they have been fine. On the lowered Tii they contact easily. These are not true alpina wheels. Maybe the offset is less, moving the wheel out more. I have not measured offset.
  12. No sunroof on the Tii but it does have AC. I paid $22,500 for it. I have not transferred the title and have not done any work to it. I'd take $22,500 for it and keep my 76 model. The Tii runs and drives well. It does not have any oil leaks. It has lowering springs, 1" lower than stock. The ride is a bit stiffer than my 76. It is a nice car. The motor went through a total rebuild at 100k miles. It has 139k on it now. It has been converted to a 5 speed. I don't know what else I can tell you. It is a good rust free car that I'd drive anywhere tomorrow. If you are local I'd be happy to show you both cars.
  13. So I'm new to this community. I have been a motorcycle guy for the past 30 years, restoring multiple old BMWs, Guzzi and Triumphs. I had 2002s in the late 70s and early 80s along with a couple of 911s and other interesting cars. I decided to get back in to a car and bought a 914 initially, hated it. I bought an E46 330 coupe and it was ok but too new. I started my search for a 2002 and have purchased 3 so far, a black '74 for about $13k that was a good driver but needed some straightening out, sold it for $13k. Bought a '76 for $14k and it needs paint but over all a very nice driving 93K mile car. Now I have purchased a '74 Tii for $22,500 with 139k verifiable miles on the car. This is a nice car and would be even nicer if the PO had not lowered it. None of these cars needed restoration, just some tweaking. I guess value is what we are willing to pay. Maybe I paid too much for what I have in the garage and maybe not. I can say this, I really like driving my 2002s. It isn't even a money thing, I prefer them over the 911s, 914s and other toys I looked at. 02s are unmatched in smiles / dollar.
  14. Yes, my 1976 Chamonix car is for sale. My 1974 Tii arrived about 10 days ago but I have not received the title yet. Now I have both cars in the garage. I will sell one or the other but not both. Both are good, rust free cars and in what I'd consider good condition compared to others I have looked at. My intention is to end up with a good car to drive on a regular basis. I like the performance of the Tii but the carbureted '76 model runs very well too. I'm not a dealer and would sell either car for what I have invested respectively. I'll post the Tii for sale as soon as I have the title.
