I was wondering where this one was going to land. the youtube walkaround video landed up a few days ago.
Pretty nice. Lots of black spray bomb underneath.
Nice he removed the rockers covers. 1st time seeing that.
I like it except...that color.
I love Riviera - rare on an e9
I really like the color too. Is the wood on the dash a big decal? Something about it looks off a little.
I love this color. It is super rare, like 1% of the registry.
I like the color ! The upgrades 5 speed and bumpers , new leather are major pluses!
I wonder if there is an invoice for the engine overhaul, 5 speed conversion, paint job and bumper upgrades...
Everything looks good to me except the nagging disappointment of the spare wheel compartment! I am guessing it is an E10 spare wheel well that was used!
Going forward I make tons of photos during the repair , or my restoration, documenting proper repair , making it easier to know what you are getting without close up inspection!
I will be watching this!
To my surprise Haven’t heard guesses for what it would go for ! Anyone wants to go first?
Best wishes for all!
I don’t see that being an 02 spare tire well, looks right to me.
At first glance I thought, “another 6 figure coupe” but upon closer look it’s close but not perfect. Riviera is great, (I prefer Riveria over black) the car is super clean. I’ll guess $75k. But what do I know?
This is what the correct spare wheel well should look like
My friend did the bodywork unfortunately he did'nt take any pictures and has since passed away. I do have his signature about engine rebuild at 90,000 miles.
He did many 2002 restorations but this was his personal car. Those who knew him know he did quality work. The dash is 3m self adhesive walnut veneer. I did it myself so not madera or bella quality. Not sure about the spare tire well?
We just bought some land and are building our retirement home so no time for the car. I'm sure I'll get something when things get settled. And I will regret it.
Thanks for the comments, Mike
Very nice and seems to be a high quality coupe that has been well cared for. Love Riviera, don't see it enough on vintage BMWs. Hope you get top dolla! GLWS
Nice car. Good Luck with the sale, and the construction project. Hope both go well.
If you want some inspiration for a retirement home, the building in the background of the lead picture looks like a good place to start. You can tell your wife you are only thinking of her when you see the photo because there doesn't look there are stairs to climb and nothing else about it grabs your attention.
We’ve talked about this car for a while; I went to look at it in 2010.
I love Riviera and don’t recall seeing another one in that color.
Mike are you saying that Peter Kell passed away?
Hope it does well on BAT.
Sadly yes Luis. Great guy
I too am looking at $75k for this great car.
Is this the original color? I wasn’t aware that Riviera was available in 1974.
Markos, Yes original color. Paint code 036. Seems they did more 2002's than coupes. Mike
How about that.
They did a nice job of installing the wrong spare tire well. Suprised it fit.
Thanks for confirming Mike. For some reason I thought it was an early color. Here is the 1974 brochure that Andreas sent me, with Riviera on the list.
