1972 BMW 2002What a sweet driving Roundie! Yes- REALLY selling at NO RESERVE!
No better time to grab a REAL tii roundie before prices get too far out of hand- we've seen it with Porsches and Ferraris...
This is what I can safely call an "Honest Driver". Fairly nice looking paint, good supportive seats and a really STRONG and willing drivetrain. While this car has received lots of restoration over the years- it is NOT a restored car. What it is, is a REAL "276" numbers matching '72 Round Taillight Tii that looks great going down the road and has that fantastic eager tii performance.
The story as I can tell is the car was an East Coast car that has had a bunch of restoration work done. Looks like the nose was replaced, the floors gone over and the whole car painted Inka Orange. The factory "Colorado Orange" is still visible in the trunk. The original seats and wheels were removed and a GREAT sitting pair of recaro sport seats installed and a set of 14" E30 "Coke Cap" wheels. I have three of the original 14" wheels and a 13" spare- all steelies- included with the car. I DO HAVE the original seats and while the vinyl is shot, the seats themselves are restorable- they come with the car.
There is some email documentation of the car having a gearbox rebuild and a rebuilt Kugelfisher- that is evident by how the car drives. I have no info on the motor but it does not leak or burn anything, so i am assuming similar care was taken. Under my care we have removed and resealed the intake runners and given the car a really thorough tuneup with new points, plugs, wires, cap and coil. It fires first turn of the key and pulls VERY hard through all four gears. The gearbox is slick and absolutely "graunch" free. I recently resealed the gas tank, and the car is just a phenomenal driver.
The body overall looks pretty good- plenty of small areas that have been touched up but I just had the airdam resprayed and much of the car touched up, so it looks good. The worst areas are two small areas of bubbling on the rear fenders, a large crack on the dash just to the right of the gaugaes, which I have tried to picture, and the brightwork, almost all of which is oxididized. For me- I would just ignore them for now. As values continue to rise this car would be well worth giving a REALLY good sheetmetal once over and respray- remove the snorkel and make the engine bay correct, re-cover the original seats, new door panels, headliner and trim and BOOM- You have a $50K++++ car!
The car is running a K+N cold air filter now- but the original excellent condition airbox IS INCLUDED!
I would say the car is a "10 footer" but it's slightly better than that. I get nothing but thumbs up, horn honks and shouts of "nice car" whenever I driver her. Other than the two small wheel arch bubbles I see no evidence of rust top or bottom- I have pictured the underside of the doors and the frame rails- looks OK to me.
The car is for sale locally so I reserve the right to pull the auction if a suitable offer is made. It seems to me that with where values are going it is impossible to get hurt with this car- A great driving, nice looking REAL tii sold at no RESERVE!
