ONLY 51,000 MILES
FINANCE EXAMPLE - £1000 DEPOSIT 60 * £852 MONTHLY PAYMENT
Here we are lucky enough to have a truly outstanding example of the BMW 2002 Tii. This August 1972 car is an exceptionally original, low mileage, low owner example, matching numbers, ready for any show or any collection now.
This BMW has covered only 51,000 miles from new. In its 47 year life, this car has been cared for by 5 former keepers. The last 2 owners I know personally, they have owned it for the last 9 years.
This 2002 Tii is an amazingly original car, all bodywork and panels appear to be factory original. In 2012 , the owner realised they had an exceptional car, something very special that needed preserving. So at some considerable expense , the underneath of the car was sandblasted, all suspension parts, bushes, fuel pipes etc replaced. No panels replaced, no welding, all factory original. The underneath of this car is as good as the top of this car, all preserved for years to come.
This example benefits from the sought after, round rear lights. It’s never had a stereo fitted.
Bodywork / Interior / Wheels / Underneath etc
The bodywork and paintwork are in excellent condition. Finished in Verona Red, as you can see the car has the deepest all over shine. Look closely at this car, look down the sides, look across the bonnet, boot and roof, no dings, no dents. Look at the lovely chrome bumpers and chrome trim. This car is ready to show now.
This interior is finished in Black. Again its all in exceptional condition, with only the slightest wear showing on the drivers foot well carpet, not bad for 47 years. No cracks in the dash, perfect door cards, perfect seats, headlining all good. Look at that lovely steering wheel.
The alloys are all in excellent condition, no curbing etc, all tyres recently replaced.
The underneath of this car is just as good as the rest. It’s in outstanding condition, all nuts and bolts / pipes / suspension parts / original floor pan, sills and jacking points, all present perfectly.
Engine / Gearbox
The 2.0 engine is a delight. It’s starts straight away and performs perfectly. It’s a delightful engine, lovely engine note when you push it a little.
The manual gearbox and clutch all feel and perform as they should.
I note at 48,000 miles the engine was stripped down by a BMW specialist, all gaskets replaced (to fix various oil leaks), a new clutch was also fitted.
This 2002 Tii comes with an excellent history. We have the original manual, the original service book, original sales brochures, a thick folder full of service invoices / old mots etc. It’s a lovely read, it gives the next owner all the details they could want for, how well this car has been serviced and maintained. Lots of regular servicing, lots of evidence of all the fluids being regularly replaced, brakes and suspension parts regularly replaced.
I’m sure if you are looking for a 2002 Tii, you realise that most have been rebuilt / restored at least once by now, if not many times. You will also know what a cracking classic car this model is, fantastic revving 2.0 fuel injected engine, manual gearbox, lightweight and balanced handling.
This car drives and performs as good as it looks. If you are looking for one of the best and most original examples, you have to come and see this car.
This lovely BMW will come with a years MOT on sale, so its ready to enjoy.
