BMW/ALPINA-A4 Tii Presented is a special hand-picked car from the greatly admired Rey Rivera BMW Collection. The selected 1974 Alpina Tii is a rare one off example of the pivotal milestones in BMW’s history and is clearly representative of BMW’s rise to prominence in the 1960’s and 1970’s automotive sporting world. 1974 BMW Tii Offered is a one of a kind, and perhaps the best ever BMW iconic 2002Tii previously owned by the legendary Bob Murphy and now part of the greatly admired Rey Rivera BMW Collection BACKGROUND: This 1974 BMW 2002 Tii was built January 14, 1974. With just under 10,000 miles on it, Bob Murphy purchased it in 1975. Bob owned the vehicle for thirty-three years. Bob was instrumental in the preservation and maintenance of the 2002 Tii. In addition to being director of the Tii Registry, Bob played a key role in bringing BMW AG Mobile Tradition and the BMW Car Club of America together when they were both in their nascent age. His relationship with BMW AG provided him with a voice for 2002 owners with his knowledge and input for the development of parts no longer made by BMW. Many a member was greatly aided by his writings in the Tii Registry. Bob’s Tii began as a normal restoration project and transitioned with a spectacular rare Tii combining the best of the 2002 Turbo and Alpina A4S with his Tii. Alpina new and original OEM parts were used throughout the restoration. EXTERIOR: Bob began the five year bare metal nut and bolt restoration back in march of 1999. The restoration was a no expense spared process with the body completely stripped and repainted with Glazurit Polaris base and clear coat. Parts not replaced with new were stripped and CAD plated. The color matched bumpers were replaced by Rey Rivera with a Euro Bumper Kit. Additionally, he added a Turbo Spoiler and a center mounted antennae to the boot lid. The trunk boards rest on an aluminum tray modified to accept the 2002 Turbo Fuel Tank for larger fuel capacity. The battery, accompanied by a trickle charger, was relocated to the trunk for battery maintenance with an hour running meter and additional battery terminals have been fitted under the hood. INTERIOR: A new OEM 2002 Turbo Dash was installed. The Alpina 320mm steering wheel and shift were installed by Rey Rivera. The gauge pod houses a specially designed knock sensor and matching air/fuel meter. The A/C blows ice cold helped by a modern rotary compressor as well as ungraded hoses and components. Additionally, Dynamat heat and noise insulation was installed under the “lux” black wool carpet as well as behind the door panels and above the headliner. Additionally, the Blaupunkt radio is enriched by the Hirschman amplifier and speakers. The Recaro Seats, installed by Rey Rivera, provide the complete sport feel for the car. MECHANICAL: During the late ‘60’s and 70’s the German Tuner Alpina offered a range of performance upgrades for the 2002. Alpina designated their four cylinder BMW M-10 Motor conversions with the letter “A” of which the A1-A4 versions were available for sale. The only version using the Kugelfischer injection pump was the A4 which came in two versions: 160HP A4 and the 175HP A4S. Over the total production period (184) A4 engines and (90) A4S engines were built. Bob selected the 175HP A4S version and added the rare Bosch Electronic Ignition System- Thunderbolt with the knock sensing transistorized ignition. He increased displacement with second over Mahle Pistons and had the head re-worked for increased air flow as well as adding late model new late model valve guides. Additional enhancements include: Abarth exhaust installed by Rey Rivera, Getrag 240 Close Ratio 5 speed, Limited Slip diff, 95 Amp alternator and additional Bosch relays, Euro Z-beam headlights, Hella driving lights, 2002 Turbo brake calipers and struts, 2002 Turbo external oil cooler, 2002 Turbo radiator and larger cooling fan.
