1969 BMW 2002

The term “yuppie” didn’t exist in the 1960s, but if any car from the era could have been associated with that subculture, it could probably be the 2002. Years after this model ceased production in 1976, subsequent 3 series models would be the object of desire for upwardly mobile professionals. The 2002, however, was the car that really put BMW on the map in the post war years and went on to represent something for which to strive for German families seeking to rebuild their lives. The 2002 would last long into the 1970s and pass the baton over to the E21 3 series after the 1976 model year. This earlier model is a nice find, as many of these lesser 2002s have been restomodded or done up as tributes to the faster, more upmarket 2002tii and turbo models.

This roundie has its flaws, but it is far from a basket case. Many of the issues could be easily corrected. One obvious benefit to California cars such as this is you won’t have to deal with much rust, which is the case with this car. If the 2002tii is a bit rich for your blood, you can still get a lot of similar thrills for less money with the base 2002. These BMWs are a great introduction in understanding what the Ultimate Driving Machine is all about.

    I am only an admirer, but I thought that these cars were four speeds?

    @ Early8q, correct, these were 4-speed manuals in stock form. The seller lists this as having a 5-speed transmission (a common upgrade) so we will take him at his word.

    Thanks Paul. That makes sense. Having driven a late tii, I think a five speed would make the car far more comfortable on a daily basis; the four speed works hard at highway speeds IME.

    This is a nice daily driver. I see the values of these cars increasing, particularly the round tail light models.
