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

Asking $6500

Upgrades and Goodies: early bumper conversion; e21 Recaro seats and steering wheel; e21 3.91 LSD; 5-speed conversion; Weber 32/36 DGAV (water choke); Ireland Engineering shorty headers; IE stainless steel exhaust; IE urethane motor mounts; IE sway bars front and rear; IE springs and new Bilstein Sports; IE big brakes w/ss brake lines (e21 rotors & hubs, volvo calipers); IE aluminum radiator and electric pusher fan; urethane subframe mounts; s14 starter new differential hanger mounts; 002 distributor with cap, rotor, and wires; Pertronix Ignitor; Bosch Blue coil; New tie rod ends and center drag link; new coolant hoses; new rear light assemblies, clear; MSW 14 basket weaves w/Sumitomo HTR200; Kosei K-1 15s w/Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star; Top End Performance Rear Strut brace w/battery relo; BMW quick ratio steering box

Not-so-good: handful of small spots of bubble rust; front and rear valence could use some body work (or add a front spoiler); some trim needs work; needs sunroof seals and window seals; cracked dash; doors, trunk & gas cap don't lock

[strong]Tossing in:[/strong] set of used Mikuni PHH44 sidedrafts w/manifolds; original rotors and calipers; e21 alternator; Haynes manual; BMW ’02 Restoration Guide by Mike Macartney; The BMW 2002 – a comprehensive guide to the classic sport saloon by James Taylor and Mike Macartney

That's a well done 2002. That five speed conversion makes it.

Awesome looking 2002. Back when BMW made non complex non bloated cars.
