Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this charming 1973 BMW 2002 "roundie" finished in correct Agave over Tobacco interior. This '02 is an honest, long-term North Carolina car that is original where it matters but features many nice upgrades for driveability: five-speed manual transmission, adjustable sway bars, tii header, Weber 38/38 carburetor, Ireland Engineering distributor with electronic ignition, H4 headlights. Recent factory exhaust, shocks, steering box, differential, front end and steering rebuild. Fresh oil service, new front brakes, four new tires, alignment and passenger window regulator. The previous owner claims the engine was rebuilt and bored .030 over. Just over 11,000 miles is shown on the five-digit odometer and we believe actual mileage to be 111,000. This is an excellent car mechanically that is fun to drive.
Cosmetically this 2002 shows as an attractive driver; it was repainted to a nice standard about ten years ago in the correct color, Agave. Original paint in good condition remains in the engine compartment. Underneath, all of the panels appear original and in good condition -- with the exception of a patch in the rust-prone spare tire well. The lower body moulding was removed during the repaint for a cleaner look; the factory steel wheels with hubcaps are a nice touch. A brand new windshield was just installed; other glass is believed original and in good condition. It has been driven since it was cosmetically restored so a few nicks and touch-ups are present but overall the car presents quite nicely.
Inside, brand new OEM door panels were just fitted at great expense; otherwise the interior is mostly original. Even the dash pad is decent by 2002 standards although it does have a few cracks. New berber floor mats. The gauges are clear and working as is the period-correct Becker Europa radio. Original upholstery remains on all of the seating surfaces; both front seats have a couple of split seams on the bottom panel.
We have just completed 500 reliable miles in this car -- it's ready for touring use or local shows. For more information about this 1973 BMW 2002 five-speed for sale at Motorcar Studio, please call 404-692-5250.
