    Update by current owner PFCDexter.  Per info.grouparchiv@bmwgroup.com: "The BMW 2002 tii (VIN 2763480) was manufactured on February 16th, 1973 and delivered on February 28th, 1973 to the BMW importer Hoffman Motors Corp. in New York City. The original colour was “Fjord Metallic”, paint code 037."  It does look like it was Chamonix before taking on its current Inka color.  The car is now in Houston.


    The manufactured date of February 19, 1973, has been estimated, based on an actual manufacturing date of February 19, 1973 for VIN 2763484, four cars later than the subject car. Neither the manufactured date nor the original factory color, likely Chamonix, has been verified by the BMW Group Archive.


    Delivering dealer: Boulder Import Motors Co., 3215 28th Street, Boulder, CO 80302


    Initial delivery and registration: May 25, 1973


    This is not my car. I made this entry because a generous forum member, maxxfish, has the original service booklet for this car and entering the car in the Registry seems like the good bet to re-unite the current owner and the original service booklet. Here’s the forum thread regarding this car.



    I also assumed, without authority, that the car’s 2011 exterior color, Chamonix, is the original color. Please correct me if I’m wrong!  The photo heading this entry came to us courtesy of 02Les’s inventory of ‘02 photos.


    Lo and behold, the car, color-changed and “Euro-ized”, sold on December 21, 2021, for $56,000.



    Bid for the chance to own a 1973 BMW 2002tii 5-Speed at auction with Bring a Trailer, the home of the best vintage and classic cars online. Lot #62,021.
