Among the most enjoyable cars to drive in the 1960s and ‘70s was the BMW 2002, and a 1976 BMW 2002 is the Pick of the Day on ClassicCars.com.
The car is being advertised by its private owner, who reports a pending move from Farmville, North Carolina, to a “colder climate” means less opportunity to drive the car “as often as I’d like.”
“My loss is your gain,” the seller continues, adding “It has been a joy to own and I will be sad to see it go.”
The seller is willing to let it go, however, for $23,500.
“I have owned this lovely car since 2020,” the seller notes. “Since this time, I’ve made several improvements and repairs and it is running beautifully. It has always been covered and out of the rain, both by the previous owner and myself.”
The seller reports the car to be “almost entirely stock” except for the seats and “some mechanical improvements.”
The seller reports investing around $4,000 in the car since its purchase, and the advertisement lists where that money went, including fuel pump, coil, front brakes, master cylinder, transmission mount, suspension parts, gaskets, carburetor adjustment, etc.
The car also received a new Weber carb, carpeting, rear brakes and tires just before the seller’s purchase.
“As I understand it, the car has spent most of its life in CA,” the advertisement says. “I purchased it from the owner after he had just moved there. Current odometer reading is 68,000. Based on my prior discussions with the previous owner, I believe the odometer has rolled over once.
“The original M10 engine is rock solid and runs great. The compression was tested as prefect when I bought it and continues to purr smoothly. Cold start is immediate. Acceleration is very lively and the (manual) transmission is butter smooth.”
