Unreal mileage, and the car is actually located right here in Oregon, in Eugene! The seller has the car consigned in Germany with 2-Shores and here is his explanation:
I consigned with 2 Shores for two reasons. First, I think the car will bring more money. European buyers are snapping up rust-free US cars and the Euro exchange rate is a huge help. Second, Jurgen is very well connected and has an excellent reputation.
Wow is the only word that describes this example. And even more so the thirst for clean examples abroad. I’ve been invited to take a look and if it’s still for sale after our vacation, I’ll have to do so!

Good luck with the sale Blair W, and please update us with your sale!
Check out his 1974 BMW 2002 Turbo for sale on eBay:
It will be interesting to see where the 1975 2002 Turbo Conversion I posted Friday, and this original Turbo auction end up. Especially considering the condition of this one is in rather, uh, original and un-restored. Bidding is already at $22k with 8 days to go! Considering other uber-rare BMW 2002 variants I’ve posted in the last year have commanded $30-45k, where do you think this one will end up?
Update: This car sold for a tick over $40k!!
This turbo converted 1975 BMW 2002 on eBay has been previously featured in European Car magazine:
1975 BMW 2002 Turbo / M10 Turbo Engine
This car has been featured in the December 1995 European car magazine, and the November 1998 issue of Turbo and High Tech Performance magazine. It has won numerous car show awards and race events. Before I purchased this California car, it had undergone a complete mechanical and cosmetic restoration, there are a few nicks here and there but otherwise beautiful. I recently purchase a new motor for this car which has less than 1000 miles on it, still being broken in. The Mitsubishi Blue and Porsche Silver paint scheme give the car a longer, lower appearance- yet it still passes for a nicely restored stock 02 and can be used as a daily driver. This is the ultimate driving machine… there is no area of the car’s performance that has not been upgraded.
Top speed over 150 mph, 0-60 around 5 sec, ¼ mile times 13.2 @108mph (with the previous motor…I have not Dyno’d or completed the break-in of the new motor, but we increased the the hp by roughly 25).
Current bid is $11k reserve not met. Considering what other BMW 2002’s have sold for that I’ve referenced on this blog, I’m guessing at best $15k on this one. If the car is still as sharp as it was in the article from years ago, maybe a few thousand higher. Any other guesses out there? Leave a comment!
Stunning car! With a 13 second quarter mile and all the right suspension bits, this car is serious competition at any track day!
Update: Car did not meet reserve at $15.6k.
