Amazing time capsule ’02
The best 1602/2002 we’ve seen in a long time. A non-restored 1602 of this quality is amazing and near-impossible to find. This BMW 1602 with VIN 3917605 was built on the 19th of April 1973 and delivered to BMW Italia on the 25th of April 1973. Via BMW of Italia the car was delivered to BMW dealer ‘Autosalone T Gulia’ in Formia, near Napels. The hand-over dealer service was performed on the 23rd of May and it was first registered on the 24th of May ’73. First sold to Mr. Iafrote.
We have recently bought this unrestored surivor from the Tuscany area and got the car to Oldenzaal.
The car was ordered in 002 Colorado orange over a black cloth/vinyl interior. The body shows no signs of welding, its wearing all original body-panels. We have bought the car in 100% original paint. Not because of rust, but because of scratches, imperfections we had the car repainted below the belt-line. Everything above the beltine wears original paint. Including doorjambs, engine-bay and trunk.
The paint thickness was measured (see pictures). The body is incredibly straight with perfect shutlines. The chrome on the bumpers is looking excellent. All rubbers are in great condition. The doorjambs are clean and the door bottoms shows excellent metal and paint. Not repaired, an excellent survivor. The grilles are in perfect condition!
The interior is one of the best original interiors i’ve encountered. It shows it’s looked after and has driven 87.000 kilometers. All original black vinyl and black cloth on the seats and rear seat. Very clean and looked after. Also the carpets are in excellent original condition. The doorpanels are straight as an arrow and the chrome trim looks as new. An original center console that never saw a radio. The 2-piece dashboard is in great shape and it has its orignal 3-spoke steering wheel. The headliner is the original and is beautiful. The glovebox shows the original manual and service book.
The engine bay is just as original and kept up to date. All original paint and decals. The engine is the original, matching numbers 1,6L unit. The engine runs nicely, silently and goes through the revs. We have done a major service on the car:
All new ignition parts (plugs, cap, rotor, wires etc), new fluids, new coolant hoses, new waterpump, tuned the carb, set the valve clearance. The engine runs like a champ goes eager through the revs.
The car sits on a restored set of the Italian-market Momo lightweight wheels. Nicely powdercoated and fitted with new tires, nuts and polished correct centercaps.
The trunk shows the original, matching Momo wheel with Pirelli tire, jack, tool.
We have done a recent, major inspection to make it drive and function as it should:
- Engine oil + Fiter
- Valve clearance
- Ignition Cap + Rotor
- Shock absorbers front axle
- Shock absorbers rear axle
- Hardy Disc / Guibo
- Center driveshaft bearing
- Shifter bushings
- Door-brakes L + R
- Differential bushings
- Heater hoses
- Exhaust supension rubbers
- Now ready for the next 49 years. 100% serviced and ready to be enjoyed.
