Listed over this past weekend is a 1976 Colorado Orange over black BMW 2002 you can find here on Craigslist in Annapolis, Maryland where the seller is currently asking $16,500. Using the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool as a guide, the private seller has their 2002 priced between the #2 “Excellent” level of $20,300 and the #3 “Good estimate of $11,600.
The 2002 was the updated 2.0L inline four version of BMW’s “02” sports sedan launched in 1966 with a 1.6 liter engine. With excellent handing and nearly perfect steering feel, this was the car that started the sports sedan craze popularized by the E21 “Three Series” BMW launched in 1975 to replace the 2002. Styling-wise, BMW launched the famous “Hoffmeister Kink” on the 1600/2002 – this is the forward curve placed towards the bottom of the rear window that remains a design element on BMWs and many other cars to this day.
The current caretaker of this 1976 BMW 2002 reports his car is properly serviced and up to date and mostly original. Upgrades include 302i Alloys, a Weber 32/36 carburetor, electronic ignition, Bilstein shocks, and the battery relocated to the truck. We love the period correct floor mats throughout the car, including the trunk floor. Also included in the purchase is an original sales brochure owners manuals, and even a service manual. Based on the owner’s account, this appears to be a solid and well-maintained example of BMW’s original sport sedan that will get you noticed wherever you drive it.
Good luck with the purchase!
