Summer Fun: 1975 BMW 2002 Baur Targa

1975 Bmw 2002 Tii Baur Targa Side

BMW 2002’s are a fairly common sight, but when was the last time you saw one of these? This 1975 BMW 2002 Baur Targa is one of 1,973 produced and although it has some flaws it could make for a fun summer driver. Find it here on eBay in Los Gatos California with bidding at $50 and the reserve unmet.

1975 Bmw 2002 Tii Baur Targa Back

This 2002 was updated to tii specification, which basically means that they added fuel injection. If it was done correctly this could be a welcome upgrade. It could be switched back to carbs though if needed. There are no photos of the engine included in the listing so it would be a good idea to request a few photos or take a look at the car in person.

1975 Bmw 2002 Tii Baur Targa Interior

The rest of the car looks very original with the exception of the steering wheel and rims. We like the looks of the minilite look rims and the M1 wheel does not look too out of place. We would probably want to stick a black Momo Prototipo on there and sell the M1 wheel.

1975 Bmw 2002 Tii Baur Targa Top

The rear widow is foggy so the top will need to be repaired or replaced. We are not sure how hard these are to source and you may end just having to have someone make it from scratch.

1975 Bmw 2002 Tii Baur Targa Shock Towers

Our biggest concern with this car is the rust the the rear shock towers. Luckily the seller is including new tower metal to make the repair. This car is a special model, so if you know what you are doing this car would be worth saving.

    I’d be worried about a car that is so nice on the outside and so obviously NOT nice in the structural areas that aren’t visible at first glance. It would lead me to believe that it’s been selectively restored in the worst way.

    I recognize the location in the first photo – this car apparently belongs to a friend of mine. I haven’t seen this particular car but he knows his BMW’s and has had numerous Baur targas, from 2002’s to E30’s, in the 20-ish years I’ve known him. He’s a great guy and will be completely straightforward to deal with.

    It’s a British registered car so the rusty bits no surprise. Would have been quite pricey back in ’75!. It’s different to usual convertibles and stiffer with that extra tin.
