1972 BMW 2002tii For Sale in the Pacific Northwest: Project Car or Driver?

Here’s an interesting listing on Portland Craigslist for a 1972 BMW 2002tii in Sahara Beige:

quote from seller’s Craigslist ad:

Sahara 1972 2002 tii (the vin is correct for a 1972 tii). this is a tii that you will enjoy driving and not worry about parking downtown or in parking lots.

saddly, the body shows old body work and the many seasons in the nw weather. ive tried to take blantant photos of the numerous imperfections in the body. i do not believe any structural integrity is compromised in the floor of the car and the jack points. most of the rust seems to be in small patches around the car including the spare tire well and about a 2in strip on the left shock tower. a plus on the body is the original tii nose that does not have the passenger side snorkel.

the interior shows its age. the carpets and rear seat look great but the driver and passenger seat show years of use. the dash is cracked and the clock does not work. sunroof operates properly. all instuments work except the odometer, and the temp gauge reads high but that seems to be due to grounding issues because it is jumpy depending on the electrical load and engine load.

[…]

i have owned the car for over 5 years, driven it alot, and have had very few problems, only needing to rebuild the injection pump. the odometer has not worked for the entire time i have owned it so i do not know the milage.
it is a blast to drive and certainly a good candidate to restore to perfection if so desired.

So as I suggest in the title, how would you treat this car? Address the rust and mask the paint to make an immediately approachable and cool driver, or would you take this one to the back shed for immediate tear down and restoration?…

1976 BMW 2002: Beautiful Resto-Modified Example For Sale

Isn’t that what the Barret-Jackson folks would call it, a resto-mod? A very well done restoration with a custom touch to make this one a one of a kind, while not straying far from the original BMW 2002 formula.

1975 BMW 2002 Custom 2002 on Roadfly:

quote from seller’s Roadfly listing:

The beautiful paint choice with ‘shadow line’ trim treatment, spotless interior, period correct looking HRE wheels, and nicely warmed over Korman built motor make this car a standout. But with a $25k price tag, it stands amongst the most expensive company in used BMW 2002’s like this Turbo on BringATrailer. Like most cars that I post like this, I often wonder how the owner can part with it considering the effort and money invested.…

1973 BMW 2002 on Bring A Trailer

This is a cool spot by Bring A Trailer for a 73 BMW 2002 ’roundie’ with some tasteful modifications. Furthermore, the owner states that he’s selling the car to finance a trip to Targa Newfoundland.

There’s a lot of whining in the comments of that post about the modifications and the fit and finish. I think it looks great and appears very well sorted. And apparently bidders agree as there’s only 2 hours left and high bid is over $16k. Not bad for a car that’s not a tii and lightly modified!
