This BMW 2002, '2649046', was manufactured on October 18th 1971 and delivered on the 21st to the BMW main dealer in Wietis in Ludenscheid finished originally in Agave Green, paint code 071. According to the vendor, 'SFL 261K' originated in West Germany in 1971, and after purchase, went to Gockel Tuning in Gammertingen and had an extensive, documented engine build, to the tune of over 15,000 Deutschmarks.

Later on in its life, this car was purchased by a UK collector, who subsequently sold the 2002 to our vendor four years ago. The intention was to transform the car into an Alpina 2002 wide-arch replica using the 2.3-litre, four-cylinder, 16 valve S14 engine and E30 M3 running gear, however, this did not transpire due to other pressing projects. The current owner has had extensive maintenance carried out on the car during his ownership which was in preparation for the S14. All the maintenance work is fully documented and comprehensive and is available to be viewed in the history file. Also included in the history file is the original German paperwork and dyno graphs showing an output around the 185nm mark. Sitting on 13"split-rim BBS alloys and accompanied by the aforementioned history file, a UK V5C, roll cage, twin 45s, race seats, and reportedly in good mechanical condition. New arches are supplied with the car by the vendor but will need fitting as the fibreglass has crazed.  Offered at No Reserve, this is a rare and interesting opportunity.
