Free: Rusty Survivor: 1972 BMW 2002Tii

If you've wondered where the term basket case came from...this next feature might shed some light on the subject, but you will certainly be exposed to some tetanus during any in person inspection.  Really, the most solid thing about the car is the price, cause it doesn't get better than free.  Find this 1972 BMW 2002Tii offered for free in Monterey, CA via craigslist.

The BMW 2002 is an appreciating collectible classic that it still affordable for the average car buyer. The Tii version (touring internationale injected) is the premium version to get -- it adds fuel injection, rarity, and some special under hood parts to up the cool factor on an already cool car, but prices have skyrocketed recently...unless they are rusted out rollers.

 See another freegan transporter?


  1. I'm scared of what lies beneath the bodywork.

    Nothing like a rust: free car.

  2. I guess it is worth it, especially if someone is looking for the front vent windows, then scrap it for $50.

  3. This is the kind of thing the Brits would call an easy resto.

  6. Basis for a race or track car... Take the vent windows, door handles, and rims from this one, and... Well, go and buy a complete car. I'm not sure there's even parts value in this one.

  7. This stretches the definition of survivor too far.

  8. Needs a lot of work! Even if you got this for FREE you'd be hard pressed to... Oh wait.. Never mind..
