Description for BMW 2002 1974

Thanks for checking out my 1974 BMW 2002 (e10). No rust!
I bought this thinking "Hey, I've always wanted a 2002 and how great would a project be?!" After almost 2 years of work I've finally been able to enjoy it in the summer. However I'm now at the point in my life where a wedding and other adulting resposibilities have taken priority.
Here's the situation. I've put about $8k into this car to get to a point where I can actually enjoy it. It's a crazy amount of money to put into this car and I've done it because I have a weird emotional bond with this car. At this point I just want it to go to someone who's going to enjoy it, and continue to drive it. Here's the work I've done so far to get the car to enjoyable:- Engine crankshaft seal replaced- Drive belt replaced- Master cylider replaced- Brake pedal plate replaced- Power brake booster replaced- Pedal box removed and replaced- Radiator replaced with aluminum alternative (have orignal iron core)- Fan delete installed to replace original fan (have original fan)- Rear axel rebuild- Tie rods replaced- Suspension replaced- Lowering coils installed- Bushings replaced- New exhaust installed- Rear License plate light replaced- Body work and surface rust removed- Pastelblau paint (not engine bay or door hinges)- Rust removal below car take care of with rest of body solid- New glass (front and rear windshields - apparently the last rear windshield from BMW Germany for the 2002)
As you can see from the pictures I've started the work on the mechanics before I was really able to get to all the paint. I had the car painted because I am in Minnesota and rust is abundant. If you've made it this far you're probably somewhat interested so it's worth noting the pieces that will need attention:- The AC is currently removed as I was manuevering the new electric fan (Yes, this is a BMW 2002 that actually has air conditioning)- The car starts right up every time I drive it but the carb could use a good cleaning and probably reseal - The headliner needs to be replaced (haven't touched the interior)- The center console needs to be added (have the original but didn't like it)- Turn signals currently don't work but hand signals have worked just fine for me- New tires would certainly make the ride more comfortable
Help me find a new home for this car that doesn't want to give up.
If you have any questions please reach out!
