Although the majority of stock steel rims appear to have been manufactured by Lemmerz, stock steel rims were also supplied by Kronprinz and Suedrad, two other German rim manufacturers. BMW part numbers for the 5x13 styled-steel rims are 36111112631 (Lemmerz), 36111112452 (Kronprinz), and 36111112604 (Suedrad). Below, an example date May 1975 (“5” over “75”).
Edit: Recent price movement from initial price of $3300 to $3000 then finally to $2800 suggests you could probably snag this one for about $2000. Which I think is a great deal considering only two or three problems need to be solved to get it street worthy. https://huntsville.craigslist.org/cto/d/1974-bmw-2002/6601514456.html Over the past two weeks I've been traveling around the Southeast looking for a 2002. I sold my '76 Fjord a few weeks ago and already need to scratch the itch . . . anyways, this car is one of the ones I have driven. The owner was quite nice and burned a lot of his time to accommodate me, so I feel like I owe it to him to help sell it forward. We agreed on $2800 to ship the car to my door in Atlanta, and this was back when he had it listed at $3300. I believe the price adjustment is due to the rust we discovered, see description below. Photos tell most of the story. Car starts and runs fine but won't idle and would putter out after running at high revs until the throttle was messed with. Could be due to old fuel, but unlikely. Seals are in good shape. Most electrics worked, even the dome light door switch. Body was fairly straight but needed a bit of help on the rear quarters. Rust is depicted in photos. What turned me off the car was a massive crack in the rear floor pan, stretching the width of the car, right where the rear subframe brace bolts into the floor pan. I have photos somewhere if you'd like to see them. If you find yourself interested, PM me and I'm happy to discuss what I saw in detail in hopes of saving you a trip or convincing you to go take a look.
The re-painting of the '76 is providing me opportunities to examine items I've seldom or never fully viewed. The original carpet is out for cleaning. I figure that if it lasted 39 years with the car, it deserves: (a.) to go back in the car for the next 39 years; and (b.) some love, for perhaps the first time in 39 years! And I was surprised to see that it's actually in better condition than I anticipated -- I had considered replacing the carpet in the late '70s because I thought it was looking tired. Fortunately, I had more pressing uses for my cash during that time and that allowed the carpet to survive. The worst fading is confined to the driveline hump, particularly under the emergency brake handle. The back seat foot area has filth or stains due to....I have no idea! But I also had no idea the carpet was dated, on its back. An ink stamp on the reverse of the driver's side, roughly between the seat tracks, shows a manufacturing or inspection date of April 12, 1976 (12 . 4 . 76), and a label attached to the separate carpet piece that covers the rear seating area's lower kick panel has an ink stamp of April 14, 1976 (14. APR. 1976). The car was manufactured April 23, 1976. I don't recall any dates on round taillight carpets -- and the '73 lost its original carpeting -- but, who knows, maybe there are dates!
