Hurry: ’71 BMW 2002
The great David E. Davis wrote in April of 1968, “To my way of thinking, the 2002 is one of modern civilization’s all-time best way to get somewhere sitting down.” We could not agree more. That article caused much turmoil in my head back in ’70. I was a mere college age kid who wanted one in the worst way. I fulfilled my dream in almost the worst way: spending the summer working nights running telephone cable in office buildings for AT&T. Made almost enough to buy a slightly used Polaris Gray ’69. The rest came from the sale of my Oldsmobile 442 (with a 2-speed automatic). But I got it and it was great (although everyone thought it was one of them there Toyotas back then). I came across this Inka Orange, astoundingly low mileage, example right here in Mint’s own backyard. So why am I sitting here? This one will surely be gone by the time the post airs Friday morning. But if it is still up, I would be happy to check it out for you. It has an original interior, radio and more importantly, the original drivetrain. It is the desirable round tail light edition in one of those great ’70s colors too. The seller says it is worth $13,500. I think I paid $2700 for mine. If it checks out like he says, I wouldn’t quibble over a few bucks. Click here to contact the seller.
