The success story of the BMW 2002 is a well known one. Starting as the 1600-2, next gaining a 2 liter engine and culminating with Kugelfischer injection, we know this model as the 2002 tii...
Larger valves, bigger brakes, stronger suspension components as well as the all important fuel injection made the tii into the "whispering bomb"... The Kugelfischer injection system was a very costly system to install, but made a very dramatic improvement to the car. The tii was conservatively rated at 140 hp but was noted to produce an actual 150 hp and deliver over 30 mpg. The system is very high pressure: at approximately 500 psi, it is around 10 times that of modern fuel injection- thus better fuel atomization... Combined with a well designed intake manifold, the tii can produce 30-50% more torque than a base 2002.
This particular car was produced in mid year 1973. From Jan to August 1973, production was a very low 1302 units. Cars produced earlier did not have the more sophisticated "3 bowl combustion chamber, while later 1974 tii cars had less horsepower and more weight due to larger bumpers and other mandated items. This leaves the 1973 tii as the acknowledged "peak year" car. In this writer's personal long term experience, there is a definite 10-20 hp advantage in the 1973 specific cars.
The car has original carpets, door panels and headliner. The VERY rare optional sunroof works great, believed to be installed on less than 20% of the cars produced (valuation guides add 15% value for this option). Chrome bumpers and other trim are in excellent condition. Indicated mileage of 05xxx is most likely 105,xxx due to the overall feel of the front and rear suspensions - very responsive, without any excessive play or noises.
Highlights of this car include:
- Rust free California car
- Factory sunroof
- No evidence of accident damage in nose or tail area
- Recaro sport seats
- Near perfect running engine, with all gauges and lights fully operational.
It is currently wearing medium blue paint, in excellent condition.
