All-wheel drive, turbo power and a Q-ship’s stealth.
SOLD After three years of looking for the time and not finding it, I'm going to part with my 1976 BMW 2002. Too many other priorities got in the way. It runs incredibly well and is absolutely reliable, so could be a daily driver, but some upgrades are there for improved performance. Enjoy Sunday drives or really push it, either way it’s a great ride.
It's a ten-footer in the looks department. The body overall is in nice condition and paint is in good shape, but there are some issues noted below. Drivetrain and suspension are excellent. The engine was rebuilt in 2009 and the suspension upgraded at the same time. Has less than 3k miles since the rebuild.
Located in Knoxville, TN

That's a well done 2002. That five speed conversion makes it.
Awesome looking 2002. Back when BMW made non complex non bloated cars.
