Roughie: 1971 BMW 2002

The round tail light (roundie) BMW 1600/2000/2002 is a classic by any yardstick, so it isn’t often that you see one that runs/drives offered for less than a stack of 10 Benjamins…but here we are.  Find this 1971 BMW 2002 offered for $900 in Bremerton, WA. Tip from Zach Z.

 The seller admits that the car is cosmetically rough (understatement of the century folks) on the outside with its rust issues on parts of the body, but goes on to say that  structurally it’s very sound. Frame rails are perfect. Strut towers are
perfect. Floor boards are perfect.The dash is almost perfect. Head liner
is almost perfect. Glass is all in tact. Has roughly 120k. 
Aside from the leprosy covering 99% of the exterior, this thing isn’t bad.

The engine pics are not that clear, but the air cleaner housing looks like it was borrowed from a ’60s Ford and everything is really dirty…but the seller says it starts and runs great.  The only issue is that the brakes are no good, so test drives should be interesting and brief.
