  1. If the eyes are the window to your soul, then what about a vintage car? There's something about a vintage car that evokes so much emotion.Maybe it's the smell of the old vinyl or the sound of the engine turning over.We connect these inanimate machines to so many important life memories. This BMW 1600 was a project started over a decade ago by our late dear friend, Nick Reed. I am so excited that it is finally on it's way to completion!
  2. Hey everyone, I've put my 1600 back on the market. Let me know if anyone has any questions. Open to offers. Cheers, Shawn P. https://orlando.craigslist.org/cto/d/1968-bmw-1600/6426221790.html
  3. Hi guys. I'll make this short and sweet. I had a little 1600 but then it was swiftly taken from in the form of a car accident. After about a month in bed and another 2 months taking it easy, I stumbled across another 1600 that is promising. A 1969 (built in 68) 1600 in Florida Green on Tobacco. Numbers matching, unspoiled, but very dirty car. It has exterior rust issues that need addressing but I can do most of that myself. This car will stay mostly stock. I'll probably update the rear end with a short neck 4.10 diff, subframe, and standard driveshaft, throw on a set of swaybars, lower her a bit (thinking IE stage 1/Bilstein HD) and calling it a day. I do intend on running the stock wheels, though widened another inch or two and keeping the hub-caps. This should make for a nice replacement. It will be my surf car. I bought it a few weeks ago but finally had a chance to bring it home last night: I spent three or four hours washing the car, as this was the first wash in 7 years. This wool wash mitt was brand new before I started. Now it's destroyed. It was a worthy death. And look what I found in the trunk! New! I'll probably make a blog in the coming weeks, to keep track of progress. So far, I just want to get it cleaned up and running. Then onto the minor modifications (rear subframe, suspension, interior, etc.) But yes, I'm stoked. It's time to relieve the m3 of surf duty. 1600. I like them.
  4. Make:: BMW Model:: 1600 Hey guys What is good clean solid no frills BMW 1600 worth looking to get one also whats the main differences between a 2002 and a 1600
  5. Hi guys, Posting a So Cal-specific question in Gen Discussion for greater visibility. Does anyone know of a great appraiser? I am in the process of countering my insurance's first offer, and would like to do so with the aid of a proper appraisal. If you have contact information of an appraiser who knows these classic 02s, and is available this upcoming week, I'd very much like to speak with him/her. The last thing I want is to accept an offer for half of what the current market dictates to be true value for these cars. Any information is appreciated regarding this matter. I think it's a good idea for most 02 owners to know what their cars is appraised at. You never know when someone might make an illegal left turn into oncoming traffic and leave you 02-less and seriously maimed. Be prepared. Best, RDanco
  6. I'm currently watching a auction of a 1968 1600. Any knowledge of this car would be very helpful. To restore it will need : Engine rebuild Possibly a rear dif rebuild Dash Consoul OEM steering wheel Seats OEM Carpet and upholstery OEM This looks like a nice dry start to a project Any thoughts about costs or availability of parts ? I'm sorry I'm unable to include link
  7. Maybe this is the wrong question to ask, since a 1600 was never a powerful motor to begin with, but I'd like to know regardless. Is it possible to increase horsepower of a 1.6L m10 with the 118 head? I like the 1600 platform, I really do. I want to keep the latest aquisition with a 1.6L powerplant, but I'd lie if I said I didn't want to give it a few bolt-on upgrades to give it some more pep. Things I'm considering for "upgrades": Dual Weber DCOE 40 mated to the correct intake manifolds for the 118 head. I already have a lead on these and should be in my hands in the next week (the manifolds, not the carbs). 123 Electronic Distributor. This allows for programable and adjustable timing curves. A few of our members have had very good luck with these. I want to join those ranks. 292 Cam (aggressive-ish). I have a brand new one in a box somewhere. Also have new rocker arms, valve springs, rocker arm locks, and whatever else I would need to do this. This is more of a "why not?" modification. Exhaust headers? The only issue (and a rather large one) I'm having is finding a header system that compliments the 118 head and it's smaller exhaust ports. I don't want to throw just any header on there. Doesn't seem smart. This is where I really want some suggestions. From what I gathered, Stahl made a nice set with 1.25" primaries specifically for the 1600 with 118 head. Except I can't find this system anywhere. What else is there? I can't think of much else that would actually give more power to the engine. I'm all ears! Help me reach my insane power goals of 100hp. I want to break records here! -Ryan Danco
  8. Price:: 145 Location: : Savannah,TN BMW gas tank. This is a clean gas tank with some minor surface rust bubbles and a couple of dings and dents. The inside is fairly clean but has some minor surface rust. It's got the original paint on it, no drain plug. My apologies, but I can't remember which car I took this out of, could have been my 1969 1600, 1969 2002 or the 1976 2002, though I don't think it was the 1976 car. $145 USD plus shipping/insurance from 38372. Will accept Paypal. email me at; [email protected] with your zip for total. NOTE: It may take a couple of days for me to answer, as I'm out in the sticks, no internet 24/7. Thanks, Tom
  9. Hi All, I have to present a few ads to my appraiser for cars comparable to my own for "market valuation". It's very hard to explain that no two cars are alike, and finding a comparable 2002 or 1600 to my late 1600 are basically non-existent. People who have good cars typically don't sell them. They live in garages and in private collections. It's extremely difficult finding a comparable 1971 BMW 1600 similar to my own. Mine was very modified (mechanically), but left alone aesthetically, with a substantial amount of rehab and restoration thrown in. For those who don't know the car, you can read about it's life under my ownership here: http://www.bmw2002faq.com/topic/151207-just-in-time-for-summer-1971-bmw-1600/. My appraiser friend suggested that I also find comparable 2002 ads, as the differences between the 1600s and 2002s aren't big enough to neglect a decent 2002 as well. He said he would use it in his analysis. Both he and I would like to wrap up the appraisal process by next week. As an incentive to help, I will publicly disclose the final price that I accept from my insurance, as well as a general breakdown of the negotiation process. I think it will be very helpful to some as our car's values are increasing, and getting top-dollar for your car shouldn't be an impossible task. If, like me, you weren't insured under a classic car policy (stated and agreed-value), you will have to negotiate with your insurance provider for the true value of the car. For some, this is a daunting experience, but for me, it's actually quite fun. I've been very successful with this process for past cars, but the 2002 is new for me as it is probably the most "expensive" classic I've had to negotiate for. If you can post great ads of current and past cars for sale/sold, I would be very grateful. Please no tii cars. Mine was a carb'd car and I don't want to get greedy on this valuation. The price difference between carb'd and MFI 2002s are quite different. Thank you -Ryan Danco

  12. Hi there! Looking for a suitable 2-barrel intake manifold that was designed for the smaller intake ports of the 118 head (bmw 1600 head). I know there is an e21 intake manifold that allows for a 2-barrel carb (Weber 32/36). This is what I'm after. From what I understand, the correct e21 part number is: 11611261604 Cannon also makes a correct intake manifold that I would also be interested in getting my hands on. I believe it is model 99004-095. I have four or five 2002 intake manifolds, both OEM and Canon, but the intake holes are too large on the manifold and won't work well with the current 1600 engine. It's imparative that I find the correct manifold to allow for a 2-barrel carb, or if that proves impossible, then I'll go after a 1600ti set up with the dual solex carbs. If someone has the correct set up for a 1600-2, I'd be interested in that as well. Please let me know what you have. Thanks! -Ryan Danco

  14. Hi guys, I did a quick search but was unable to locate an exact match for these under-hood stickers for the 69 BMW 1600. My painter is asking if he can remove them for a quick engine-bay respray. I have to give him an answer by tomorrow so I'm reaching out for your help. Do you know where I can purchase these exact copies? Photos attached. Thank you all. -Ryan Danco
  15. What are the differences between the BMW 1600 vs. the BMW 1602? Was it just the badge? Why are some badged 1600 and others 1602? Is there a point in time where BMW decided to rebadge the BMW 1600 and call it the 1602? I tried searching and Googled until I couldn't google anymore. I'm still stumped. I'm looking for a history lesson here guys. Thank you, Danco
  16. In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast, or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show. BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars. Then the 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.” Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic. Then BMW took a cue from American manufacturers and stuffed their largest m10 engine in their smallest body and created the 2002. That opened the floodgates, and established BMW as the premier performance automobile line in the US. ’02 series sales alone in 1969 were 9637, 2/3 of those 2002s, in their first year of sales in the US. By the end of 2002 production in 1976, BMW’s annual US sales were over 26,000, and BMW was no longer an unknown make in the US; it was—and still is--The Ultimate Driving Machine.

By the end of the BMW 2002 production in 1976, BMW’s annual US sales were over 26,000, and BMW was no longer an unknown make in the US; it was—and still is--The Ultimate Driving Machine. After World War II, BMW was in dire straits. Their Eisenach factory was in what became East Germany and lost to the company, along with critical tooling and dies. Their Munich factory was in ruins, having suffered extensive bombing damage. For several years, the company survived by making aluminum cookware, bicycles and other small items. It wasn’t until 1948 that motorcycle production resumed; cars didn’t come until 1952. And those were basically warmed-over pre-war models—large and expensive. Not what was needed—or what sold—in struggling, postwar Germany. BMW Isetta A fortuitous licensing agreement in 1955 with Iso—an Italian appliance manufacturer—allowed BMW to build the egg-shaped Isetta, with a single cylinder BMW motorcycle engine replacing the Italian two-stroke scooter engine. While barely qualifying as a car—at least it had four wheels—an Isetta was the perfect step up from a motorcycle or scooter, allowing (at least small) German families to travel snug and dry—if not rapidly. BMW 700 The Isetta’s success—in one and two door versions--begat the BMW 700, a proper car, albeit small and still powered by a motorcycle engine. But neither the Isetta, the 700, the large 501 and 502 “Baroque Angels”--essentially pre-war designs--plus penny numbers of luxurious coupes and convertibles were enough to keep BMW solvent. With Daimler-Benz sniffing around BMW’s door looking for a bargain takeover, the Quandt family intervened and bought into the company with sufficient funds to keep things going—and to allow the development and production of the company’s savior model, the Neue Klasse (NK) sedan. This, BMW’s first new-from-the-ground up model since before World War II was a success from its initial introduction in the fall of 1961. BMW 1500 By 1964 BMW knew they had a hit on their hands, and were offering the basic sedan body with several trim levels and different engine displacements. But with the discontinuation of the Isetta and the 700, the entry price of the least expensive NK sedan was beyond the reach of many Germans, the country’s “economic miracle” notwithstanding. The company needed a car that bespoke BMW in performance, handling and appointments, but less expensive—and thus necessarily smaller—than the NK sedans. Enter Type 114. Running gear development was relatively simple: use the drivetrain and suspension from the NK sedans, already well-developed and mounted on subframes. Then design a smaller, two door body with lines that mimicked the larger sedans, and buyers would have everything a NK owner would have except for two doors and a bit more rear leg room—for considerably fewer Marks. By May, 1965 designer Georg Bertram had the final body design complete; the entire package was approved by BMW’s board in November, and the car— designated the 1600-2 to differentiate it from the four-door 1600 — was officially introduced on March 9, 1966 during BMW’s 50th anniversary celebration. BMW 1600 Window Sticker While the NK sedans were sold in the US by Hoffman Motors, the importer, annual sales were in the very low four figure range. They were relatively expensive, priced with comparable small Mercedes Benz models (and much larger Oldsmobiles and Buicks) and sold by a company that was practically unknown in the US—unless you were a motorcycle enthusiast. BMW 1600-2 changed that. Only a few two-doors made it to the US in 1966, but in 1967, BMW’s US sales jumped to 4564, from only 1253 cars the previous year. Max Hoffman knew he had a hit on his hands. He also knew the hit would be even bigger with a bit more than the 1600’s 85 horsepower; it was adequate, but not really Performance. He first thought to import the performance version of the 1600-2 with dual sidedraft carbs and 15 more horsepower. However, the looming US emission standards nixed that idea; all that carburetion would never pass Federal standards. But there was a 2-liter version of the 1600 engine, identical on the outside, that would bolt right into the two-door’s engine compartment. And with just a single barrel carburetor, it generated 100 horsepower, same as the now verboten BMW 1600ti. Coincidentally, two BMW executives had the same idea and had the factory fit the larger m10 engine from the BMW 2000 sedan into their personal 1600-2 cars. With US sales suddenly increasing—solely due to the two door, when Hoffman approached the factory with his two liter idea, they were receptive. BMW 2002 was born. BMW 2002 The first ones arrived in the US in April, 1968 and caused a sensation. David Davis wrote his 2002 paean, “Turn Your Hymnals to 2002” in the April 1968 Car and Driver, and the word was out. A SOHC m10 engine, fully independent suspension, disk front brakes and 100 hp (113 SAE). And it would outrun and outhandle almost every contemporary sports car (save 6 cylinder Porsches, XKEs and exotics) while wearing a two door sedan body with a big trunk and seating for four. The rest, as they say, is history. The 02 series put BMW on the map in the US—in a few short years taking the marque from unknown to The Ultimate Driving Machine—a niche it still occupies a half century later. View full article
