Automatic Roundie: 1973 BMW 2002
Something isn’t right here. A ’73 round tail-light BMW 2002 with decent paint offered for a bit over $5k — did I just jump back in time? Maybe. Maybe not. Take a closer look for yourself at this 1973 BMW 2002 Roundie offered for $6,000 in Ventura, CA via craigslist.
DT’s resident 2002 owner CFlo writes: It’s a ’73 2002 with what looks like really nice paint and
bodywork. Blue plate original CA car. Sadly it’s equipped with an
autotragic slushbox, but that can be remedied with a nice 5-speed swap,
which is more fun and less expensive than rust repair and paint on a
ratty example. For $6k OBO, and given it’s been on CL for 16 days, I’d walk up with $4500 cash and see what happened…
For the asking price you end up with a chrome bumper classic that can be driven around as-is or hot-rodded to oblivion, which
seems like is a fantastic deal in today’s market of over-hyped and over-inflated German classics.

This one is like the last single girl in the bar at closing time. It may seem to be a good deal, but approach with caution and plan for some regret when you wake the next day.
Hopefully when Cflo walks up with $4500 cash, there won't be a thug there to take it away!
I'd leave it auto and drive the heck out of it. were I to change something in this 2002, I'd just add a/c.
I once took a sunroof automatic w factory/dealer air and dropped a Gettrag 5 speed in it. Baikal blue w silver basket weaves….. Sold it for six grand……another mistake!
Dagnabbit! This car was reposted this am for $3,000 obo. By the time I finished my coffee it was sold.
There are some fast sharks on CL and I am not one of them.
