Modified Car, 1974 BMW 2002 For Sale

Found this one of the coolest custom the German classic car has been fully modified like a race car. As you've seen here a 2-door sedan made by BMW in 1974 comes from the 02 Series family called the 2002. This example is being sold by the owner on Craigslist for $35500 in Lake Balboa, Los Angeles.

No background story was written on the Ad, only details of the modification, all exposed completely. Modifications touch all aspects of the vehicle, including the interior and exterior engine and brakes, and all components were rebuilt and upgraded.

The interior is very cool, with what looks like safety being a priority as a general racing car. Nice black upholstery with red Motamec harness on both front benches, good floors without carpets, and complete equipment including stock gauges, instruments, the very cool Momo steering wheel, and don't miss a roll cage.

The engine bay is clean and neat and fits with the correct inline-four engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission, free of mechanical issues, the battery moved to the trunk due to weight distribution reasons. If you're interested, please read the details below.
