BMW 2002s are are really coming into their own these days, and this one owned by our friend 'Ruben' has to be one of the nicest "survivor" 2002s in the country. Sporting it's original white paint and nearly perfect body, it looks like it's 5 years old and it's hard to believe that it has covered nearly 225,000 miles. This car has been driven regularly for the 45+ years and that's part of what makes this one so special. The panel gaps are nearly perfect, the bright work is...bright, and everything else is as it should be. Sporting a small ammount of rock chips and a couple small dings just adds to the character.
Over the years it has recieved a handful of tasteful mods, like an e21 5-spd trans and big brakes (all original parts are included).
We hope this car goes to a like-minded enthusiast that will drive it like it's supposed to be driven.
The car is offered for sale at $25,000
