Building upon the immediate success of its versatile Neue Klasse fourcylinder sedans, which returned BMW to profitability, the two-liter 2002 was derived from the 1602 and debuted for 1968. Delivering agile handling and delightful all-around performance, the 2002 model was offered in the all-important North American market through 1976. Model development swiftly progressed through faster 2002 ti and fuel-injected 2002 tii specifications, culminating in the FIA-homologated 2002 Turbo.
Accompanied by an impressive document file containing service and parts receipts, correspondence, photographs, and prior owner history, this 1974 BMW 2002 tii is a very well-maintained example with known provenance dating to the early 1980s. According to the document file, this 2002 tii was lovingly maintained and selectively restored as required during its lifetime, and it remains in the stunning shade of Inka Orange.
Acquired circa 2013 by the current owner, a dedicated BMW enthusiast, the 2002 was further serviced and sorted by an authorized BMW dealer. The $20,000 worth of drivetrain work included a valve job, fresh gaskets, fresh fluids, and a rebuild of the injection pump. Equipped with Mahle alloy wheels, a four-speed gearbox, Nardi wood-rimmed steering wheel, and Blaupunkt radio, this 2002 includes a jack, owner’s manual, and service documents, and stands ready for continued enjoyment.
