Description for BMW 2002 1974

This 1974 BMW 2002tii is a thoughtfully restored square taillight model that features Eurochrome bumpers, flush side-markers, high-quality repaint, a 5-speed transmission, limited slip differential, and other high quality cosmetic touches inside and out. The restoration process began in 2000 and resulted in a 12-year restoration, and service records and receipts from the restoration date back to 2003 and total over $45k.
A southern California car it's entire life (receipts dating back to 1976) the previous owner purchased the car from a UC Irvine professor, and then went through extensive restoration of exterior, interior, engine bay, suspension, driveline, and all other systems. This car was maintained at Schneider Motors from 1977 until 1998 with supporting documentation. The previous owner has been a member of the Tii Registry since 1984, with many mail and print documents to support.
Exterior was painted locally (Long Beach, Ca) through the assistance of Coupe King. At the time, all US-side markers were removed and European bumpers added to tie up the exterior. At the same time, all exterior trim and rubber gaskets were replaced with new, OEM units. European bumpers, and a series of other parts were sourced through Aardvarc Racing in Southern California. With the trim also came new center and side grilles, new tail light lenses, all BMW emblems and model emblems as well. There is no structural rust present on this car.-The only exterior issues I would notate are on the sunroof panel itself (scratches present) where there was a slight rubbing of the panel and the inner roof. This can be left as-is, or remedied. I'm not personally a fan of sunroofs, so I never use it.
Interior was also meticulously gone through. New 1-piece dash was sourced and installed, new tii dash clock, rebuilt gauge cluster, freshly rewrapped 320iS steering wheel, rebuild and modified center console (with three gauges (coolant temp, oil pressure, voltage)), CD player w/ radio (good sound system), fresh Recaro Seats with matching rear seat velour (also commissioned from Aardvarc Racing). Fresh BMW Square Weave Wool Carpet installed, fresh headliner, and all new rear view mirror and Golde sunroof crank handle replaced at the same time. I should also mention that the air box and fan were completely overhauled. This includes the heater core and it's valve. Everything light, fan variation, button, or electrical unit works correctly.
Engine was completely gone through and rebuilt through JF Pro or Jack Fahuna. JF Pro rebuilt the engine, kugelfischer pump, injectors, warm up regulator, and any other wear/tear item requested by Jack. Nothing was spared in this department. The previous owner wanted a problem-free driver and that's what he got. All work was rendered 27,000 miles ago as per receipts and gauge cluster rebuild.
At the time of engine-out rebuild. PO sourced a rebuilt Getrag 245 5-speed Transmission, rebuild 3.91 Limited Slip Differential, and all ancillary/supporting modifications to make this work correctly and efficiently. With this came fresh suspension bushings, Bilstein HD Shocks and Struts, Suspension Technique swaybars and sport lowering springs, Miller Norburn fixed-camber plates, IE front strut bar, Top End Performance Rear Battery Tray, and various other modificationsthat made the car tighter, and can easily be reversed in the event of originality was once again pursued. This car was build to drive confidently around the country or around the corner to your local coffee shop. It does both very well.
In the last four months, this 2002tii has undergone change of all fluids, new OEM motor mounts, new Starter, new Battery, coco mats, trunk panel refresh, door lock/gaskets refresh, door brakes replaced, euro turn signals, and many other things that significantly improved the car. All work was performed by myself or Jeff Tighe of Tighe Productions in Costa Mesa, Ca.
If there was a 2002tii that I would call "good", it would be this one. Please see photos for greater details and reach out to me directly for questions. I would prefer you come see the car before you purchase, so you can get a sense of it's incredible condition.
As should be expected, this car is sold as-is, where-is, with no warrantee expressed or implied. Not that it should matter, because it's one of the greatest 1974 Tii's to exist, and it happens to be for sale.

Thank you for looking,Ryan(310) 916-7751
