Without question, the 2002 is considered the definitive small sports sedan. While the diminutive Isetta is thought to have saved BMW, the 2002 is regarded as the vehicle that defined the company. The 2002 has its roots in the "New Class" and would become the first of a long line of BMWs to use a sturdy, imminently tunable, four-cylinder overhead-cam engine. Demands for increased power had prompted BMW to introduce the original 2002 in 1968, with increasing refinements and power output as the years progressed.

1660826 was built on April 18, 1968, wearing Granada (023) paint over black leatherette with sunroof, and was delivered April 29, 1968 to the US Market. The BMW made it way to California where it would receive much cosmetic and mechanical restorative work from 2016-2019. The idea was to freshen this early 02 to a proper "driver" level for carefree enjoyment and rugged vintage touring. Much of the car's recent work was performed by marque specialists 2002 AD of Pomona, California. Records on file include attention to suspension, steering, and brake systems, fluids, filters, ignition, carburetor and cooling system, rubbers, seals, tires (x5), sunroof, brightwork, upholstery and paint.

The car appears to retain original body and floor, although the floors have been patched / repaired in several areas (pictured). All side and rear glass are etched Duro-glas, along with an original Sigla windshield. Its cabin displays recent basket weave leatherette upholstery, padding, headliner and carpet - while its sunroof operates smoothly. Current mileage reads 52,300. The luggage compartment is fitted with new grey flooring, over the stowed spar tire, jack and tire iron. Ideal for immediate driven enjoyment and / or continued rolling refurbishment, 1660826 offers early 2002 desirably and pure "New Class" design. Now available for worldwide purchase and delivery from our Houston, Texas showroom.
