1974 BMW 2002

Potential base for conversion to a turbo replica; Euro spec LHD model; manual and non-sunroof; interesting example driven regularly by our vendor after many years in storage

Dating from 1974 this 02 series BMW was the forerunner to the 3-series which replaced it in 1975 in E21 form and is a European spec car originally from Verona, in Italy.

Finished in Polaris Silver, this left-hand drive example comes to us in desirable 2002 guise, featuring the 1,990cc M10 four-cylinder engine driving the rear wheels via manual transmission.

The car has been with our vendor for the last year, being owned by his friend prior to that who had been unable to use the car through the pandemic.  Their plan had been to turn this car into a 2002 Turbo replica (with turbo) but it just hasn’t got there, so, instead, he’s just used and enjoyed the car over the last year.

This cool coupe shows 7,425Km which we assume to be at least 107,425Km the car having worn its age and Km well, the interior tidy with blue vinyl seats and the exterior tidy bar the obvious corrosion to the leading edge of the bonnet as seen and pictured. That aside, the car looks solid in the boot, which is a common problem area and underneath too, so much so in fact, the current MOT valid until April 2023 shows no advisories at all even though it is of course exempt.

In addition, the history file includes the V5C revealing three former UK owners to our vendor, also confirming the car was imported and registered in December 1999, an old V5C, older style V5 from the first UK owner, user manual in Italian and service book revealing four old stamps from 1975-1981.

The file also includes a selection of old bills for parts, information on the car’s origin from BMW Group, six old MOTs and old SORN docs.

Ready to be enjoyed and driven 50 miles to the sale, the car makes an ideal base to be used, restored or even perhaps turned into a Turbo replica as the vendor had intended – that’s up to you.
