1972 BMW 2002Tii Lil’ Bastard – Anthracite
This is a great little tii that we found local not too long ago. 1972 black plenum tube, number matched car. With condition of the original interior and all other signs leading us to believe the 75k on the odometer is true. Car was born in Agave green, and was painted Malaga and subsequently a faded Anthracite. This makes for great patina. While the look is great, the body needed some help. Having spent some time on the east coast, there was some rust in the pan, one frame rail, rear fender arch, and a couple other spots. This was all fixed properly. We also filled the US side marker light holes before touch up. Otherwise she’s straight and unwhacked.
She’s now fully mechanically sorted and runs and drives well. The underpinnings have been all redone. Diff and trans have been resealed as well as complete suspension and brakes. I’m sure there’s a few more things that will be sorted as she gets ‘fettled’. We took a light touch with this one as it’s a car to drive as is and will be amazing to restore down the road.
Currently living a new life in sin city. Was sad to see this one go, but she’s got a good home.
