69' 2002

1969 2002 auto.

Replaced head gasket with top quality competition head gasket
Cooling sys totally re-placed
re-cored radiator-water runs @180-190 degrees @ freeway speeds even in the desert when it's over 100!
replaced water pump
replaced thermostat
replaced alternator
rebuilt starter and solenoid
replaced battery
cleaned block and oil pan to bare metal and repainted it
installed new freeze plugs in block
installed NEW timing chains (both)
cleaned and trued all mating surfaces, oil pan, head to block, valve cover, front timing cover, etc
new German gaskets for every component-NO LEAKS!
re-cored radiator-water runs @180-190 degrees @ freeway speeds even in the desert when it's over 100!
removed trans cleaned, brought up to factory specs, fabricated small part no longer available for input shaft.
replaced guibo, and all drive shaft bearings front to back
rebuilt passenger side drive shaft and installed new rubber boots
Complete new exhaust and stainless steel polished tip
Here's the other things done to the car,
Painted original color-Colorado-not concours show job, or bare metal but a nice street driver paint job. Car is straight, gaps good no dents-$3700 for paint
Left original paint where possible, engine bay, trunk, etc.
Had passenger side mirror hole filled-car came with only drivers side mirror.
Removed side reflectors front and real and had holes filled. Euro cars didn't have these, makes car look cleaner, I still have parts and car is wired for them-and these parts come with the car.
New Bilstein Sport shocks and springs (lowers car .5 inch-doesn't look modified, just better than stock ride height)
Front and rear sway bars from Sway Away-parts alone over $500-came bright green, I had them repainted original black so they don't stand out
New brakes-100% new, calipers, drums, wheel cylinders, master cylinder, brake lines, hoses, all German top quality NEW.
Transmission perfect-chirps tires between 1st and 2nd, VERY quick.
Cooling system overhauled, new or refurbished everything
Motor out, freshened up, has terrific compression, no leaks, runs strong. Weber single carb.
New drive shaft
New heater valve
Electric fuel pump installed in trunk near tank-totally sano pro installation.
New windshield rubber front and rear-done right!
New chrome windshield inserts front and rear
New sunroof seals-ALL 3, not just the easy one-sunroof works perfectly.
New door seal rubber both sides. The seal alone is $200 per side, shop cost, you know.
Doors close like new, no wind noise at speed.
Everything else, steering, lights, flashers, turn signals, all gone through and work terrific.
5-Original wheels, 2 with '69 date, (2 have 71 I think) wheels were straighted, stripped and powdercoated original silver.
Original Stainless steel hubcaps in beautiful polished condition with original roundel in center with nice patina.
New tires-expensive tires from Tire Rack. I got 185 series, the widest tire you can put on stock rims but got the softest, most high performance rubber made in the limited size of these old BMW wheels
15'' rare BBS euroweaves w/ Dunlop tires (new)
interior is just PERFECT and everything works =)
OEM 2002 turbo 3 spoke steering wheel
New black carpet
Newly custom recovered Recaro E21 sport seats
Newly custom recovered rear seats same as front
New Optilox round rear fog lamp
Euro Amber turn lights
Correct owners manual
All 5 original keys included
lots of records including an appraisal
Original number matching block will be included and more.
I will post updated pics soon
Asking price is $15k

Fog lamps are not included and italian turns has been changed to euro turn lights.
