Double Vision – 1976 BMW 2002 Automatic and Parts Car

September 12, 2016

Among lovers of BMW’s 2002, the 1976 model year, fitted with the automatic transmission, is something like the V12 E-Type coupe with automatic is among Jaguar enthusiasts. You can still see the original vision somewhere in the car, but like fat Elvis, it’s lost its direction and edge, its vision blurred by emissions controls and safety regulations instead of drugs and food. But with the 2002 moving ever more firmly into collector territory, it’s time to give even this rendition a second chance. Let’s take a look at this 1976 BMW 2002 Automatic for sale for $2000 in Hayward/Castro Valley, CA.




Pinstriped 3-Box – 1968 BMW 1600

February 27, 2016

If someone asked you to pinpoint a hotbed for affordable early E10-body BMWs, would you think of one of the wetter parts of the country? With the recent feature of a 1967 BMW 1600, perhaps a better question is whether two cars constitute a hotbed, but in any case, these are fairly rare vehicles. Being nearly fifty years old – yes, really – the early E10s that haven’t been restored yet have been subject to all sorts of treatment, including quick fill-n-shoot jobs, brush painting, and in some cases, unusual two-tone and pinstripe color schemes. So let’s take a look at this 1968 BMW 1600 for sale for $2250 in Vancouver, WA.

Pow, Right in the Kisser – 1967 BMW 1600

February 10, 2016

One of the two key ingredients in BMW’s iconic 2002, the E10 BMW 1600 lives in the shadow of its bigger brother. But the early cars have their own charms, being from a time when we were less concerned about safety, and more about hey look at that shiny thing in each dial! Though a bit down on power, they have everything else that made the 2002 great – tall greenhouse, stark interior, and light, tossable platform. And you can always have the oddball appeal of having that proud “1600” badge on the back of the car, except when it’s been removed by a self-conscious previous owner, like on this 1967 BMW 1600 for sale for $2800 in Portland, OR.
