Two more lots will reach their conclusion today on Hemmings Auctions. A two-owner, mostly stock BMW 2002tii from 1974 offers upgraded driveability, while a 1984 GMC Sierra that seems to have avoided a lifetime of heavy work will wrap up today. Be sure to visit www.hemmings.com/auctions for the latest results and up-to-the-second bidding.
The 2002 was a staple of BMW’s offerings by 1974, and this one is the vaunted tii model featuring mechanical fuel injection for its 2.0-liter, overhead-camshaft M10 engine. With only two owners so far, this example is said to maintain its original engine. The four-speed gearbox shifts smoothly with no issues, and the unrestored engine bay shows minor defects. Finished in Verona Red, the body shows no exterior rust, fading, or notable paint swirls, and the manual sunroof is free of leaks and works as it should. Inside, the seats were replaced with Recaro leather buckets that are slightly worn, but show no rips or tearing. The factory radio was also replaced, though the aftermarket system is currently not operating. This 2002tii shows 98,000 on the odometer, and bidding will end later today at 3 p.m. Eastern Time.
It’s harder these days to find used trucks that are over three decades old and haven’t been worked to the core and put out to pasture. This 1984 GMC C1500 High Sierra is still going strong today, though, with only 37,000 miles on the odometer. It still has the factory 250-cu.in. straight-six and column-shifted three-speed manual. This GMC is said to have been used primarily as a commuter instead of a work truck, and the stock engine has never been rebuilt; the only non-stock parts are the Flowmaster muffler and exhaust tip. The Colonial Yellow paint is original except for the driver’s side bed panel, which was repaired to fix a scratch near the wheel well. The optional Rally wheels are still in use today, and the bed is in pristine condition. The cabin is clean and the vinyl bench shows minor wear with no rips or tears. The High Sierra options inside all remain, including the finishes on the dash and door panels.
