1972 BMW 2002 2002 Tii Additional Info:

Up for sale a 1972 2002Tii, the most desirable of the Tii’s, both in year and color. I purchased the car new in 1972. It spent two winters in Wisconsin. You can see by the pictures that it looks

pretty clean. I’m not sure what you will find underneath the paint if you take it down to the metal for a repaint. When I cleaned out the trunk and opened the tire well I saw rust there.I’ll show it in a few pictures.I don’t see any indication of rust underneath the car. I did have it undercoated when I bought it to protect it from Wisconsin winters.

It runs great and has 49,583 miles on it.The car is solid but needs some things due to its age. New rubber around windshields, doors and trunk, under hood foam, new front windshield. I have an oil leak. The dash is cracked and would need to be redone. Steering wheel has a crack in itSun roof felt gasket needs to be replaced. I had a parking lot ding 30years ago, I don’t remember exactly where.Had the car painted by an employee’s husband who cleaned up a few other minor dings and repainted it with the same golf color.The motor, transmission, and Kugelischer, are all good. I’m told the warm-up regulator has a vacuum leak. I’ve not noticed any loss of performance over the years, it has always run great.

The plastic intake runners crack and break and today's replacements are not as robust as the originals. That is why you see my attempts at reinforcing them. I do have a 1973 intake, I bought it 25 years ago, tried it and didn’t like the way the car ran. I was asked after if I replaced the throttle body with the later version. I had not and that was probably why I wasn’t pleased with how it ran.I suspect the purchaser of this car would want it original and continue with the plastic runners. I do have some additional parts that I will include with the cost of the car.(tune-up parts, plastic intake runners, cold start valve, oil filters, air filters). All parts are for this car.

The air conditioning is pretty much non-existent in the AZ heat. (Behr system)I believe the best home for the car would be on either the east or west coast where there are still a few people left that know how to service them, I would guess it will likely end upin someone’s German car collection after restoration, The car is pretty much original. The car has lived in my garage in Scottsdale, AZ for the last 44 years. I take it out once in a while in the fall and winter and drive it a little just for fun.

It’s a beautiful time of year to visit AZ if you want to see and drive the car before purchasing. All sales are final. The car is offered as-is. I will be sad when it’s gone, it was my first new car, in fact my mother had to sign for it because I hadn’t established any credit history.

Finally, I was told by my bank (Wells Fargo) yesterday that it could take several weeks for a cashier’s check to clear. A cashier’s check from Wells Fargo could possibly reduce that time.I will release the car once the check clears my bank. Likely several weeks after I deposit it, it takes them that long to verify it’s authenticity. I’m repeating what my banker told me.

If you’ve always lusted for a Tii this might be the one.

Good luck
