1971 BMW 2002
Probably the finest BMW 2002 in existence.
One of a very limited number of the iconic 2002 models delivered new to the UK market, this numbers matching example must also be the finest, indeed it was awarded a Class Winner Trophy at the BMW National Concours in 2018.
Finished in its original stunning period shade of Colorado Orange the concours condition of this 02 is truly incredible, the detail fit and finish, panel gap alignment and depth of finish are beyond reproach. It comes as no surprise to find that the previous owner and restorer was a body specialist at highly regarded Rolls/Bentley specialist P & A Wood, recipients of the world’s most prestigious concours awards including many Pebble Beach victories.
The detail involved in the rebuild is truly astonishing, for example, all brightwork required including light lenses and badges were bought directly from BMW, new carpets and correct headlining were sourced and the wiring loom, no longer available to original finish was removed, painstakingly checked and then re bound in the correct braided cloth. The body shell was stripped bare for the work and all components refurbished or replaced prior to reinstallation, including the running gear.
The 2002 has covered minimal mileage following the award-winning restoration on dry roads only. A full check over and service has recently been completed and any snagging issues dealt with. Supplied with history file and original handbooks this must be the finest example of its type bar none.
