1974 BMW 2002 Additional Info:

Car comes out of the San Diego area and I believe it had sat for a period with the original owner doing some restoration and not completing the project. I will start with the exterior which was color changed and repainted I would guess a while ago. The sunroof was removed and closed up. The car was color sanded and polished and shows really nice but it does have a few blemishes mainly on the roof where there are a few hairline scratches. All the door jams were painted but the engine compartment was left the original color.Car has the turbo and European look due to the bumper and the spoilers and the front turn signals. All the running lights were removed and the holes closed which also included the outside gas filler which is now in the trunk.Car has solid floors.The interior has a new headliner and carpet and not sure where the seats originate from. I do not have the original seats. All the rubber weatherstripping was replaced which included the door seals, the front and rear windshield, the trunk and the hood. Unfortunately the dash does have a few cracks and has a dash cover. New pedal rubbers and a new gas pedal was installed and the foam rubber seal that fits under the foot controls was replaced.The mechanics - the car was not running when I purchased it due to the fuel injection having a problem. I had a BMW 2002 specialist repair and tune the vehicle to get it to run like it should. An enrichment control on the back of the injection pump was not operating so the pump was flooding the motor. That part was repaired and new spark plugs, wires installed and the valves were adjusted and the ignition timing and idle.Car has a new battery and a new intake boot. I had to install a button on the left side of the steering column for cold starting which works perfect. The transmission shifts smooth and the clutch feels really good.Car has also a brand new electric fuel pump. It also appears to have new front struts and comes with new front and rear suspension springs with rear Bilstein shocks. Newer front and rear sway bars. Brakes are all good but some rust on rotors surface due to the car sitting unused. Tires are in decent shape just some sidewall cracking on the front tires. The chrome wheels also have a little corrosion. All the electrics work as they should. The headlights have been replaced and halogen bulbs were installed. No interior light. The T shirt goes to the buyer.Note: The BMW technician remarked that the engine had been totally rebuilt from his observation and has matching numbers.If you have any questions you can call me at 310-259-5755 or email me through ebay.
