Lot 107: BMW 2002 Cabriolet

Classic & Vintage Cars & Motorcycles, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (13 July 2011)

In 1968, following on from the success of the 1502/1602 range, BMW added a new model, the 2002. The 2002 looked visually similar to the smaller engined models, although it gained extra bright-work and ornamentation. The new car came with a choice of either a two-door saloon or three-door 'Touring' hatch body, although a limited number of cabriolet models were also built by BMW affiliate company Baur. Powered by a 1990cc 120bhp overhead cam engine with independent front suspension and disc brakes, the 2002 offered excellent performance and established BMW's reputation for building small sporting saloons. First registered in February 1973, this particular Cabriolet has been in the current ownership for the last six years. When he acquired it in 2005, the car had been in storage for several years but responded well to recommissioning and a thorough service. It was also treated to a respray in bright red and was then pressed into service as a daily driver for the next two or three years, proving totally reliable throughout this time. For the last three years the car has been mainly back in storage apart from the occasional outing to keep things working properly  hence the reason for sale. Said to be in good condition throughout and to drive well, it comes with various bills for routine maintenance during the current ownership and most old MOTs back to 2005. Currently taxed until December and MOTd until June 2012, it is on the button and ready to go. These classic BMWs are real quality cars that make eminently practical daily drivers and this one looks good value at the guide price suggested today.
