Available for auction is this 1972 BMW E6 1602 Touring finished in Inka Orange over a black cloth and vinyl interior. The BMW 1600 was introduced at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show and was available in several configurations including a hatchback Touring model which was produced between 1971 and 1972. This 1972 1602 Touring is said to have been acquired by the seller from its original owner in Germany and was subsequently imported and titled in California.
This 1602 came factory painted in Inka Orange and is said to have been refinished in 2010. The exterior shows minor imperfections throughout and the seller has provided a collection of detailed images. Features include chrome-finished front and rear bumpers, front fog lights, and 13” steel wheels with BMW center caps. The wheels are dressed in a set of Colus TA11 tires from 2020.
The seats are upholstered in black vinyl with cloth inserts, complemented by a matching dashboard and door panels. The cabin is said to remain original showing minor tears on the front seats and features roll-up windows, black and orange checkered floor mats, front vent windows and rear pop-out windows, a wooden shift knob, VDO instrumentation, and an AM/FM Blaupunkt Munster radio. The seller confirms that all gauges, lights, and features remain functional apart from the clock and horn which work intermittently.
Power is provided by a M10 1.6L inline 4-cylinder engine which has been upgraded with a Weber downdraft carburetor. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 4-speed manual transmission. The seller notes that under their ownership regular service has been carried out including oil and filter changes, a tune-up, a new battery, and new tires.
This sale will include a clean title.

@73tiguy OK, I can answer any technical question/s or other one/s relevant to the TOURING
however, I can NOT comment nor express anything about Mr. CARTER !?
Perhaps Jan Echeverry can confirm the TOURING's legitimate, assuming you know Jan!?
@FORMULAONE - I see. I'll check the 2002faq forums (which I'm a member 73tiiguy)
@73tiguy No Carter here!?
@FORMULAONE = Carter??
Most definitely market direction…
While big corps R laying off thousands and thousands, the collective and/or weekend Fun
and/or Classic events becomes much lower priority…
@FORMULAONE I wonder if it's direction of the market, or the chosen platform that halted the bidding? As I'm up in NorCal, and not local I can't come by for an in person look :)
@iamlostru that's 100 LS...a piece of....
Back around 1974 my college friend and I tripped around Scandinavia and Europe.
Rented a blue BMW 1602 (which we had never heard of, 2002 being all the rave here).
While slightly different design than here - (more like the US 2002) it was a great car. Far better than my Audi 10pMS at home and I can't imagine a 2002 being much different.
Good luck to all that want to keep this for fun and all to see.
