Description for BMW 2002 1968

Hello!!

I am very sad to be posting this ad but the time has come for me and my roundie to part ways. It is a 1968 BMW 1600-2 born on March 1st1968. He was delivered to Hoffman Motor Co. in NYC on 3/27/1968. The BMW's original color was Bristol (code 058). I have owned the BMW for over 4.5 years and I purchased the car locally from the 2nd owner. The car has had an older restoration by the 1st owner. He has been re-sprayed a metallic silver/grey color. Paint is great and still shines on all sides of the car except for the roof, trunk and hood where you can see some fading. (Mostly on the roof & trunk). That doesn't bother me because the patina goes great with the color of the car. The belt line trim is all there but does have dings. I've seen complete new sets selling for around $1000.

The odometer shows approx. 37K miles and the odometer and speedometer still work. Brakes where all redone by the previous owner and the master cylinder was replaced also. I was told the clutch was replaced by the original owner and I believe it because the clutch is nice and smooth and grabs right away.

The engine bay will need some detailing (see pictures) but I have left it untouched just like the two previous owners did. The carburetor was rebuilt by the previous owner and it does have a manual choke. Oil changed every May and air filter has been changed.

The interior is in great shape except of course for the cracked dash. The original Blaupunkt radio still works and the middle speaker is original. All seat belts are there and are stamped 1968. Headliner has noholes but the dome light is missing. A replacement can be purchased for around $50. A new carpet was installed by the original owner.

Trunk area is all original including the spare tire which is stamped 1967. The only minor rust hole this car has is the one typically found in the spare tire well. Nothing major and this is a typical rust area on roundie's. Shock towers are solid and original.

Therear bumper has a big ding in it but there is no body damage behind it. I pulled the bumper to make sure. I got the car like that and it never bothered me but a new center bumper piece can be purchased from Roger's Tii for approx. $350.

Glass is all original and front windshield is showing somedelaminationat the bottom corners. Front and rear windshield gaskets where replaced but the middle chrome lock molding wasn't installed. I have 2 new rolls of the chrome lock molding that I will include in the sale.

The drivers side view mirror is also original but pitted. I believe it is called a Swan Neck mirror. Both rain gutter moldings are missing but used or new gutters can be purchased for approx. $75-$100 each..

The wheels aren't my favorite. They came with the car. All center caps are there. I am including OEM steel wheels with brand new tires. They are all stamped 11/70. I have to check on the brand of tire and the size. I am also including a nice set of OEM hubcaps.

Finally, this is a matching numbers car and the engine still runs great and very strong. The VIN number is1563747.I will try and upload a video of the car cruising at 60 mph on the highway with no vibrations at all. The suspension and exhaust system are original to the car. Car rides smooth with no rattles or vibration but I would refresh the suspension if I where keeping the car.

Well folks, I can go on and on about my roundie and I probably forgot some stuff. The only reason I am selling my beloved BMW is because I bought a house and I'm sure allot of you know how that story goes! This a no reserve auction so highest bidder wins!! The BMW is being sold AS-IS and WHERE-IS. I will assist with shipping but arrangements and costs are the buyers responsibility. If you have any questions feel free to send me a message or you can call or text me at516 398 1204. Have a great weekend! Thanks for looking! I hope the BMW goes to a good home!!
