Bavarian Hot Rod: ’75 BMW 2002
Who is Metric Mechanic and why do we care? We care because they provided the guts that make this build special. Metric Mechanic was created out of necessity when the founder, Jim Rowe, set out to build an indestructible transmission for his autocrossing efforts. He was so successful it became a business. And that business grew to include complete drive trains – all race quality built. This ’75 BMW 2002 has a Metric Mechanic engine (details on the listing) , dual 45 DCOE Webers, Tii mechanical advance distributor, MSD 6AL and plug wires, IE Motorsports step header, 325I lightened flywheel with 228 mm clutch. The transmission is a rare dog-leg 5-speed conversion from Metric Mechanic with limited slip differential, new drive axles and drive shaft. The suspension has been upgraded with Bilstein shocks and struts along with Ireland Engineering front and rear sway bars and strut tower brace, BBS style wheels with Kumho 215 45 ZR16 tires. The interior sports Recaro seats with netted headrests and a McIntosh head unit with 4×6 Infinity speakers all being driven by a JL Audio amp and 10” sub woofer. The exterior is Darth Vader black with nice striping and no noticeable dents or dings. The car is said to run and drive great. The build has about a 1,000 miles on it and we are sure the seller has some good reason to part with it. Hey, there are plenty of stock 2002s out there. Why not mix it up with this one? Bidding is at $20,200 with a Buy It Now of $32,500. Read the details at eBay by clicking here.
