  1. Probably, planning this as a slow burn refresh and repair before rebuilding the original numbers-matching motor. Then, planning to pull the current engine, repaint, then reinstall the rebuilt engine. Someday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Alrighty - some more pics from this morning. Title issues should be cleared up in about a week, hope to take delivery by next Thursday! Weird that there is no roundel on the back and no holes to mount it. I think it’s had at least one respray and possibly took a hit on the back? It’s also missing the reflectors and mounting holes just above the rear bumper. Also loving the assortment of parts and books and old stuff in the trunk. Wegweiser is right, the hub caps are always in there for some reason... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Went for $7250...just a bit more than his original ask! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Thanks Mark! It’s coming in the next few weeks. Seller is working through title issues with the DMV right now so may take a little longer than usual. He’s been helpful but it’s not done until it’s done. Keep you all posted!
  6. Someone better buy it quick, at this rate it’ll be priced at $25k next week! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. No snorkel, rough rockers. I’d take a flyer on it though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. What a great car, love this color! Looks like you have a Chamonix / Sahara as well? Very sweet. My wife basically said the same thing - it's a $25K project, but not all at once, plus I'm interested in working through the process over time as wrenching is a hobby and completely different than my day job. I went through the same thing with my E30 318iS, where I spent $8.5K on the car up front, then another $12K or something (never count up your receipts, it's bad for your marriage) over the last 3 years bringing it up to daily driver reliability. New head, suspension (x2, decided I wanted it lowered just a tad to get rid of body roll), brakes, tires, Euroweaves (from Germany), etc, and then the various leaks and fixes as you go. It's not the cheapest way, for sure I'm in the E30 for more than it's worth and will probably be the same with the 02 over time. But doing this with my son makes it worthwhile...he's learning to fix things and appreciate old stuff. And, it's a lot of fun to maintain and bring it back to life.
  9. It's awesome to hear, as I've put a deposit down and should have it here in the next week or two! All the research and good advice pays off...as does listening to Mark when he says he'd buy it :) I've been up early researching what to do with the numbers matching motor, and if it should become a father / son rebuild project (he's 8 and LOVES 02s!). It will stay a bit ratty for a minute, but definitely going to be as original as possible as we go. Except to add driving lights. That's absolutely happening. And it's staying Polaris. Such a great color and love your 76! First though, will spend some quality time with some cleaner and a rag to see what we're working with. Brakes and fluids, tires, suspension, lots of elbow grease. Maybe a build thread. Never thought I'd say that!
  10. It’s in Monterey, unfortunately. I don’t mind rolling the dice on this given what I’m seeing, but would much much rather see it in person. Thanks for taking a look though!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Getting ready to possibly get this one - if anyone sees any cardinal sins here let me know... https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/251341-wtb-02-in-ca/?tab=comments#comment-1373746
  12. More. Rockers / cam pics are of replacement motor. Comes with numbers matching engine but it needs a rebuild. Compression on the replacement checks at 145-150.
  13. Looking for show stoppers...
  14. I liked the white one, but...in touch with seller with the 69. Waiting for pix. Stay tuned! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. And you said it'd be hard! Wanna go on a road trip?? Sent the seller a note for more pix.
