1969 2002, restored with M20 6 cyl.
1969 BMW 2002 with a M20 6 cylinder engine out of a 1989 BMW 325i (E30). One of the cleanest, straightest, best performing BMW 2002s around. Gets thumbs up everywhere the car is driven. Motor is strong, the sound of the engine/exhaust is AMAZING and the car rolls solid and straight.
The ground up restoration was completed in 2008 by a true BMW enthusiast with no corners cut. Since the rebuild, the car has been driven 15,700 miles without a problem. Speaks to the quality/reliability of the build.
