Pay attention to this car as it will not last long on our floor. GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this excellent, 1972 BMW 2002 for all to consider. This highly original 2002 was purchased new at Mt. Vernon Datsun – BMW of Alexandria Virginia on September 1, 1972. The car came delivered nearly precisely as you see it here finished in Granada Red over Black interior. This is a rare factory sunroof car, it is highly original having just one exterior repaint in its original factory color, the car has never been disassembled, and it retains an outstanding core structure. The car is powered by BMW's proven 2.0 liter inline 4 cylinder engine, 4-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive.
The interior remains original including original seats, original dash, and gauges, original headliner, all original panels, original shifter and console, original glass, etc. It appears that the carpet may have been replaced at one time and the original steering wheel has been upgraded to a sport style wheel. All the windows, including the vent windows and sunroof, operate as they should.
The exterior paint is vibrant and shows excellent throughout. The panel fitment is factory and remains outstanding. The chrome, trim emblems, hubcaps, and roof rack remain unrestored, complete in excellent original condition. Inside the trunk reveals the original trunk flooring, original paint on the painted surfaces and underneath the flooring, the original jack and spare remain. Under the hood remains excellent. The compartment is not freshly detailed, however, it is extremely clean and complete. All factory wiring and hose configuration remain intact and are free from “freelance” electrical work. The original body number is clearly stamped on the passenger side fender, and all tags and specification decals remain in place. The underside of this BMW remains original and excellent. The entire original body and structure of this 2002 is amazing. Mechanically, the car starts with no issue and is wonderful to drive.
The BMW 2002 delivers the purest of driving experiences, a car/driver connection that only a few vehicles can achieve. Its simple but elegant design and driver characteristics make it one of the hottest European collectible today. A highly original car in this condition leaves nothing to hide and is a must consider.
The car comes complete with original owners manual and service book.
