Extract from the Tii VIN Number Thread:
“2762096 motor is in my 74 tii. I bought the motor from Jeff Ireland years in 2003 and Jack Fahuna rebuilt it to Euro tii specs (9.5:1). Jeff said it was a midwest tii that made its way to So Cal with lots of rust so the tii was parted out. I do remember emailing Andreas at BMW archives and the reply was that 2762096 was a fjord tii so obviously fjord blue was the color of the day.”
The manufacturing date above is an estimate: not yet confirmed by a Group Archives report.
