Also known as a type 114, the 2002 was the epitome of performance available at the time. The market for these cars is moving upward drastically in just the last year, this is a fleeting opportunity to obtain a relatively untouched version before they get out of reach. This car has the 2.0engine with the base singlecarburetor mated to a fourspeed synchromesh manual transmission. The car has the following new parts clutch kit, Weber carburetor setup, suspension and brakes.
Dressed in new Chamonix White paint, this 2002 shows very well on the inside and outside. The paint is in very good shape, with minimal blemishes upon close inspection and some of the trim shows wear. Car includes a bodycolored front air dam. All glass pieces are intact and have appropriate appearance relative to the car's age. Some of the exterior seals have been replaced and the new chrome bumpers are in good order. The car has 13inch BMW steel wheels with factory wheel covers that show minimal wear or curb contact and the car rides on 175/70R13 radial tires. The body panels are all straight and car has a locking fuel filler cap. In 1971, the 2002 Series received afacelift. Other changes included wraparound bumpers for all models, a twopiece instrument cluster and new seats. This car's trunk is in good shape and has a layer of undercoating sprayed on the rear wheelwells.
Inside, the upholstery is in great shape overall, as is the matching carpet. The threespoke BMW steering wheel is in fair shape and the dashboard is in good condition, although there is a crack or two to the right of the main instrument binnacle. Car comes with a set of VDO gauges, main and ancillary ones in the center console. The horn is inoperable but the door panels are in good shape, as are the mirrors and the gear shift lever. Most of the interior trim is present and the white headliner contrasts nicely with the rest of the interior. Completing the interior is a Clarion AM/FM stereo with CD player with two 6x9 speakers in the package shelf.
The 2002 joined BMW's model stable for 1968 and lasted through 1976. By 1971, the 2002 came in its bestloved shape, with the rounded taillamps and heavier, safetymandated bumpers that didn't detract from the car's sporty good looks.
Helmut Werner Bnsch, BMW's director of product planning, and Alex von Falkenhausen, designer of the M10 engine, each had a twoliter engine installed in a 16002 for their respective personal uses. When they realized they had both made the same modification to their own cars, they prepared a joint proposal to BMW's board to manufacture a twoliter version of the 16002. At the same time, American importer Max Hoffmanasked BMW for a sporting version of the 02 series that could be sold in the United States. The 2.0engine was sold in two states of tune: the base singlecarburetor 2002 producing 101hp and the dualcarburetor high compression 2002 ti producing 119hp. The 2002 tii used the fuelinjected (130hp) engine from the 2000 tii, which resulted in a top speed of 115mph.
