BMW 2002 - A Famous Classic2002 Red 04.jpg (52699 bytes)

"The BMW 2002 is one of the most understated cars in history". 

 

The 2002 was a car ahead of it's time when it was first released in the late 60's and early 70's.

This particular model has a two-litre four-cylinder engine; a capacity that was considered quite large at the time for such a small car. Independent suspension all round meant the 2002 was a tidy handler, to say the least, yet still managed to ride better than just about any other small car of the time.

The 2002's are 2 door coupes with pillarless front windows, hence the slender roof pillars, large glass areas and sleek overall dimensions.

Leo and his son are sitting on worthwhile investments with their 2002's. Leo's red 2002 was fully restored about 9 years ago and his son's blue 2002 about 6 years ago. These models were originally built in 1974, so this year they are about 28 years old (they were classified as vintage cars at 25 years). Due to their age, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find parts for these relatively rare cars (especially parts at a reasonable price!) so evidently, restoring both the 2002's were not easy jobs. With Leo's expertise however, the finished products are close to immaculate collector's cars.

Swiss Motors for 25 Years

Since the establishment of Swiss Motors, two and a half decades have passed.

For about the first decade, the company was located on Hector street where Leo rented a unit. Then about 15 years ago he bought land on Howe street and built his own unit. This is where the company is located today.
