1968 BMW 2002 Additional Info:

For sale is my 1968 BMW 1600 (I apologize for the title saying "2002" it was the only way to post this car since "1600" wasn't an option). Very rare car in good condition, this one runs solid and has had a lot of work done to it. It comes with it's flaws and quirks since it is 50 years old, but it's a beautiful car that turns heads everywhere it goes.
Originally Sahara color, this is a California car that was painted Inka Orange before it made it's way to the east coast. I purchased it in Savannah before bringing it here to Orlando. This car is super fun to drive and comes with all the desirable features of the early roundies. Small bumpers, euro turn signals, chrome grill, no head rests, etc. Mechanical clutch works great.
Done since I've owned it:
Complete rebuild of the top end
Upgraded aluminum radiator and electric fan
Converted to 2-barrel weber carb
Master Brake Cylinder
Fuel pump
Distributor, wires and plugs
Boots replaced on rear half shafts
Entire exhaust except the manifold
New Tires
Sound dampening throughout interior
The bad (and not so bad):
Brakes have been done all around and work great but fronts squeak
The original 4-speed transmission will eventually need to be replaced, which on these cars is not that major of a job. 3rd and reverse whine a bit. I've been honestly hoping the tranny goes in order to upgrade to a 5-speed but it just hasn't happened yet.
Rust in some of the usual (non-structural) spots, passenger side rocker and spare tire well being the worst but the shock towers and floor all around are solid.
Takes a little long to warm up as the electric fan and radiator keep it very cool.
Starting up takes a little time when hasn't been ran in a few days, but it always starts.
Needs windshield wiper motor
The speedometer is broken thus no true way to tell mileage.
Turn signals don't work.
This car is sold as is. If the car stays local, it comes with a phenomenal mechanic who knows everything about this car.
