2k: Back On The Block: 1975 BMW 2002

Update 9/7/2014: If you remember the cheap BMW 2002 picked up by DT reader OaklandJeff back in June, then you might be interested to see that it is back up for sale, this time on eBay.  Apparently the car had a headgasket failure that the previous seller failed to disclose, so OaklandJeff is sending it on to someone else who can properly care for it in a no reserve eBay auction with full disclosure.  Find it here on eBay, currently bidding for $500 with a few days to go, in Oakland, CA.

From 6/21/2014: The BMW 2002 is a fantastic example of a daily drivable classic (the Schmetterling exemplifies this principle) and if you act quickly, it can be a really cheap classic.  Find this 1975 BMW 2002 offered for $2,500 in East Bay SF Area, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Kaibeezy.

1975 BMW 2002 in Good running condition. Currently a daily driver.

*The vehicle has a NEW water pump, thermostat & 320i Radiator for superior engine cooling.

If you look online you’ll see the 320i radiator is a common upgrade.

*Recent rear brakes, full tune-up = cap/rotor/points/condenser/wires/plugs/fuel-air filter & oil change.

Pretty much everything is original. All the glass, seats, engine/trans, starter, etc. Is all original and in good working order.

I have the original leaky radiator (solid copper & brazed Brass) even the core on these original radiators are worth $150.

The vehicle drives very good & has No major mechanical issues.
However cosmetically she has numerous flaws. The interior is intact
except for the center console. And the original seats/carpet is dirty.

The body has scrapes & one dent on the fender plus one of the marker lights is busted & another one is cracked.

The paint still shines (garage kept) but like I said, a dent, scrapes & poor interior.

All the lights work, all the gauges work except for speedometer,
odometer works though. Heat works & she’s actually solid enough to
drive down to Los Angeles & back right now.

138k original miles. 4 speed manual transmission.

Pre-smog car with a solid rust free body. Owned by my 74 year old
Grandmother in Berkeley since new. She just got a new Automatic 3 series
Beemer. LOL!

Sorry no pics yet. But like I said this is a good running 75 2002. I see
right now on CL non running shells for this price. Or average &
salvage title ones selling for $4k & really nice ones selling for
$10k WOW! I figure $2,500 for ours is a Steal!

Clean title, current registration, no smog needed, Ever!

With all that being said the price is Firm & Cheap email if your ready to buy.

Here is a Very similar pic & a potential of what the car could be pic
