Dat Patina: 1976 BMW 2002

The BMW 2002 is on our short list of cars to buy now before they make the jump from classic junk to collectable junk.  Especially keep an eye out for patina'd versions that have been grounded to the ground...like this 1976 BMW 2002 offered for $5,999 in Burlington, MA via craigslist. Tip from Art C.



 From the seller:
I'm selling my 1976 BMW 2002. Its in good running and driving shape, new rear brake lines, rear brake pistons, new front caliper, new battery, new alternator, new tires, new lowering springs, some rust recently repaired with metal, solid little car! Shes a great driver with an awesome patina, roof is showing orange factory primer, not rust. Its an old car, so a few accessories could use some attention. M10, with head work done by Korman Motorsports. 4 speed manual. Sold with transferable registration.

  1. Stop driving your car to interesting photo spots and take some pics of the inside.

    1. I agree. So irritating. And we don't need to see more background than car in the photos. Don't stand 50 feet away to take your shots. If you're trying to sell a car, SHOW THE CAR!

  2. From the ad: "title status: missing"
    How would one go about getting a car registered after buying a car with missing title? Is Bill of Sale enough?

  3. I zoomed out 12 clicks to figure out where it is. I guess I get an f- in geography

    1. What, you've never been to verMAnt?

      You never have to worry about rust on the top of a car, it's what's below that's worrying. And on this car, I'd love some pics from underneath.
