4th Tour: 1972 BMW 2002 with Ford 5.0

Remember that BMW 2002 that wasn't a BMW 2002?  No?  It was a tube frame chassis with some BMW parts hanging out on top of a small block Ford V8 and it went from $6k...then $10k..and finally for $15 with a new paint job each time -- just read up on this article from 2013.  The beast is back for sale -- find this 1972 (or 1969?) BMW 2002 offered for $11,000 in Dallas, TX via craigslist.  Tip from Jack.

From the seller:
 This is your chance to own a one of a kind remake car!! 1972 bmw 2002 race car!! This car is completely custom from suspension, engine, interior!!! This car has a Ford 302ci v8 in it!! Has suspension set up for road racing equipped with a tremec transmission!! This car could easily be driven daily as well as a track car on the weekend!! I have spent tons of money and hours getting this completely custom car the way desired!! Tons of fun to drive!! Has about 400hp which in a car that weighs 2000lbs means if it had wings it would fly!!!

See this car for sale yet again?


  1. Does THIS color make my butt look big?

  2. Hot damn! If I had the cash, I'd leave work now and go get it.

  3. I think this thing was made to eat at food trucks, those fenders look perfect for holding some food from a truck of questionable cleanliness.

  4. If you're going to put in a custom fresh air intake, why place it directly behind the radiator?

  5. Richard obviously owns it this time.

  6. Does the fuel cell take up the entire trunk?

  7. The wheels and tires need to be about 6 inches wider to need those flares. If you're going to do a wide-body, please don't leave the fenders hanging in the breeze.

  8. from the ad:
    "if it had wings it would fly!!!"
    I thought the idea of wings on cars was to prevent that messy flying stuff.
