Offered for an appreciating new owner is this rare classic 1976 BMW 2002a two-door sedan!
Finished in MOSTLY ALL ORIGINAL "Sahara" tan paint over tan interior, this last-year example of the double '02 sports a good running 2.0 liter inline four cylinder engine with new Weber carb mated to a rare factory-equipped three speed AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION with stopping power provided by front disc and rear drum brakes. This near-forty-year-old classic E10 sports very nice E30 BBS mesh wheels with fair to good rubber, updated cd stereo, reclining bucket seats, factory tool kit, E30 325i spare tire/wheel, original red-tipped antenna and original owner's manual. The working five digit odometer shows 56,900 miles which is strongly believed to be just about 156,900 actual miles THOUGH I cannot verify this via Carfax or service history. This 1976 2002 is being sold with clean and clear California title, PLEASE NOTE: This 1976 BMW can ONLY be sold to a non-California resident/buyer due to aftermarket carb and missing original air cleaner and smog parts! This is a great find for about the cost of the sales tax alone on a new quickly-depreciating three series BMW sedan!
As I hope is articulated in the many photos here, the exterior of this 1976 BMW is in quite presentable, very original unrestored "driver-quality" condition throughout with a nice shine to the paint. MOST IMPORTANT with these older BMWs is the "R" word.RUST! Having owner dozens of these classic E10s, I can confidently say that this is absolutely one of the cleanest, driest, most original untouched rust-free examples I have seen in the last two decades. Is it 100% perfectly rust-free? Very close99.99% with perfect shock towers front and rear, beautiful clean rocker panels, virgin body panels, There is only the beginning of surface corrosion in the spare tire well and some minute rock chipped spots where the weather has grazed the paint surface. Aesthetic imperfections on this car include some miscellaneous nicks, scratches, dimpling and wear to the exterior of this car. Overall a very nice driver-quality-example that will garner attention everywhere you drive!
The interior of this 1976 BMW is in very good to excellent original condition throughout! It features beautiful seat upholstery front and rear, amazingly pristine original loop carpeting, mint uncut door panels, superb original headliner with working dome light, nice dash with two or three heat cracks, upgraded CD stereo with rear deck-mounted speakers, working speedometer, odometer, lights and blinkers, working crank windows and the groovy vent wing windows. Imperfections inside the car include inop blower motor and horn, some cracking and wear on the steering wheel, slight pulling away of the door panel bottom corners. Overall this is one very cool classic well-preserved cockpit!
This classic BMW starts, runs, shifts, brakes and handles very well. With its whopping 100 horsepower on tap it will certainly not keep up with a new 135i but has surprisingly peppy acceleration, solid secure braking, smooth up and downshifting automatic transmission, tight non-power assisted steering and crisp rattle-free suspension. NOTE: the engine is believed to be factory original. It runs fairly well and smooth though smokes a bit and is a bit tired but still quite usable. Driving this car with its responsive handling and open airy cockpit harkens back to why the 2002 was THE car that put BMW here on the map here in America four decades ago!
