Introduced during the early 1960s, BMW’s Neue Klasse four-cylinder sedans returned the Bavarian company to profitability and spawned a fast-growing model line continuing through the mid-1970s. One of the most respected models, the two-liter 2002, debuted in 1968. Sporting, tractable, and able to meet US emissions mandates, the 2002 model was produced through 1976 and was available in progressively faster specifications – from the 2002 ti to the fuel-injected 2002 tii, culminating in the FIA-homologated 2002 Turbo. In 1973, the BMW 2002 still featured the handsome and earlierstyle round taillamps, a feature that is coveted by collectors today.

This 1973 BMW 2002 tii is a very attractive example, equipped with desirable features and options including a five-speed manual gearbox, air-conditioning, Becker Europa AM/FM radio, and manually operated sunroof. Handsome in its blue over tan livery, this 2002 tii was beautifully restored in previous ownership and earned AACA national first-prize honors in 2011.

The tii clearly benefits from the care of the current owner, who acquired the BMW in January 2015 from a fellow collector in North Carolina. The BMW is accompanied by service records issued by a BMW dealer documenting the work performed to the intake and cooling systems in 2015 and 2016. Wonderfully presented, this 2002 tii is simply a desirable example of one of BMW’s best.
