David bought this 1974 BMW 2002 tii in California in April 2022 then brought it to Pennsylvania. He wants the BMW to feel a bit more powerful than it does today. Keeping the transmission would be great, but David is open to suggestions. He will not be involved with the EV conversion and is willing to ship the car, preferably to Pennsylvania and its neighboring states.

David bought this 1974 BMW 2002 tii in California in April 2022 then brought it to Pennsylvania. With 126,000 miles and no rust, the car is in very good condition. It is rear-wheel drive, powered by a 1990 cc 130 hp MFI in-line four-cylinder coupled with a 4-speed manual transmission. 

With a curb weight of 2,315 lbs, this car has an excellent power/weight ratio. It’s also very well equipped with front and rear disc brakes. The last updates include carpet, headliner, and added stereo.

David owns various gas cars and an EV: a 2023 Rivian RS1. That’s how he came to understand how practical and fun it would be to convert his 2002 to electric.

He wants the BMW to feel a bit more powerful than it does today. Keeping the transmission would be great, but David is open to suggestions. His range requirement is conservative at 90 miles, and he is looking for a top speed of around 80 mph. The single Netgain hyper 9 coupled with the manual transmission setup would be the preferred solution for David, but he’s open to suggestions.

This conversion by Flashdrive is one of his inspirations.

David will use his BWM during weekends for leisure and charge it overnight.

It’s currently not equipped with AC, power steering, or power brakes, but David wants these options added during the EV conversion. Analog EV gauges such as Speedhut’s are requested to replace factory instruments.

He will not be involved with the EV conversion and is willing to ship the car, preferably to Pennsylvania and its neighboring states.

Finally, David wants to keep the motor and all the ICE-related parts removed during the conversion and desires the modifications to be reversible, thus limiting chassis alterations.
