1973 BMW 2002 Baur
Reg. no. EUF 298L
Chassis no. 2791156
Engine no. 2791156
The origins of the BMW 2002 lie in some modifications carried out by senior BMW personnel to their own cars. The company’s director of product planning and the designer of the M10 engine both realised that they had installed larger 2-litre versions of that engine in their personal 1602s. They rather liked the improved performance, and they proposed production to BMW’s board – who accepted. Thus the 2002 was born. The 20 refers to the capacity, and 02 to the body – a two-door saloon. Stuttgart-based coachbuilder Baur had already been making a convertible 1602, and in 1971 this was switched to 2002 specification. Baur had been making convertible BMWs since the 1930s and enjoyed an excellent reputation for the quality of their work, and the superb handling and quality of the 2002 was further enhanced by the joys of open-top motoring.
This 1973 Baur convertible was subject to a bare-metal restoration at some point in the past, with photographs in the file documenting this. It remains in very good condition and has recently been fitted with a new brake master cylinder and all-new copper brake pipes. MOT exempt, it comes with the aforementioned photographs, some bills, and a V5c.
