Classic Car Auctions says:

A rare, early 1972, 2000 Touring 3 door. Presented in fabulous BMW Inka Orange, this car is being offered in need of recommissioning. 

Purchased by the vendor 3 years ago, and has been dry stored with the intention of driving whilst restoring. No paperwork has been provided with only the V5 present. We are told circumstances have now changed hence the reason for sale. This car has 3 former keepers. The vendor informs the car has no current MoT Certificate requiring welding on the drivers floor pan. We are informed minor work recently involved clutch slave cylinder, new tyres and refurbished wheels plus a battery, and some other small parts e.g wiper blades, pedal mount repair plate, new rear shocks, number plates, boot gas struts etc. Said to be an unmolested original example showing just 14,165 miles, unwarranted.

Please note this car is offered with no reserve and is sold without a current valid MoT certificate. All prospective purchasers should view the vehicle and satisfy themselves as to what work may be required to make this car road legal.
