Description
 
Registration Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 2713009 The BMW 2002 series is important in the history of BMW for several reasons, not the least of which it brought the company out of near bankruptcy in the 1960s and put BMW as a marque on the map in the United States. It was the ancestral grandfather to the BMW 3 Series and was produced from 1968 to 1976. German BMW importer Max Hoffman is credited for the car's creation. He had suggested to BMW's engineering director that a 2.0 L engine should be installed into the small two-door 1600-2 to improve performance and emissions. The engineering director argued that the larger motor would not fit, but Hoffman countered that it certainly would fit; if he refused to put the motor in, Hoffman would personally take a car with the new engine to Georg Meier, a famous motorcycle racer, for installation. Almost immediately, this brought action, and the resulting 2002 (named after the new motor's displacement) was popular in its first year on sale stateside. The BMW 2002 tii on offer is one of the rare examples that have not been raced or rallied all of its life, resulting in its still fine condition. It has been serviced as necessary and in 2012 it has received new alloy wheels and new tyres, although we are told by the vendor, that the original old wheels are available by separate negotiation. The 2002 tii is now arguably the most sought after specimen of the small and fast classic BMWs and this well presented example would offer a great addition to any connoisseurs collection.
