1974 BMW 2002 Estoril Blue, Turbo Body

posted in: Online Around the Net | 0

“1974 BMW 2002, finished in stunning Estoril Blue (a factory color introduced on the M3) with black interior. Full cosmetic restoration, with Turbo body kit, including flares, front valence, trunk spoiler, and matching lightweight rear bumper with center exhaust. The interior has also been completely reupholstered with new carpet, headliner and door skins, as well as E30 sport front seats and rear bench completely redone in new black vinyl with an accenting carbon fiber weave-patterned vinyl inset. The latter material is also used on the custom center console, which houses 3 new VDO gauges and the radio.

Over the past few years, the car also received a significant amount of mechanical attention from previous owner(s), including but not limited to a full engine rebuild, clutch, brakes and suspension. Nearly $14k (!) in receipts dating back to 2006, with more going back 20 years, all of which will be included. It starts right up, idles smoothly, runs great, shifts easily, and steers and stops as it should.”
It’s always curious why someone would sell a car so soon after purchase.  He’s says “I purchased the car earlier this year, and I’ve enjoyed the car, but my timing was lousy. I just don’t have the time to drive it much, and the kids’ activities are becoming more and more expensive.”  
He quantifies his toyness as previously owning a “mid-year 911.”  Not sure if he means 25 years ago which would place him in an ’88 Carerra.  Not sure why you would sell that.  And if he did, I would expect some left over salmon in the trade to pay for the kids activities.  
Nice looking car.
On eBay in Palm Harbor, Florida with a reserve.
