This ’73 Roundie has already met its reserve. The seller gave the car a full rotisserie restoration, down to removing the original undercoating to “expose any issues” and re-coating it in POR-15. Very important, as rust is the biggest killer of these cars.
The 4-speed manual transmission suggests that this may not be a true tii, as it should have had a 5-speed from the factory—but either configuration is more desirable than an automatic. New bits include thermostat, hoses, cap & rotor, plugs, front and rear glass, trunk gasket, exhaust, wheels, tires, headliner and more. Engine, brakes and clutch were disassembled and checked over.
1,850 BMW 2002s sold on eBay in the past three years, with the best examples averaging about $11k. Tiis, by contrast, averaged $12k–$21k, which helps explain why regular cars often get cloned into tiis. This one looks like a sharp little restored car that will be a blast to drive, but be sure you know what you’re bidding on. See the listing here.
