I was not aware that BMW built its own version of the Corvair. That’s essentially what this is as the BMW 700 is a rear-engined vehicle offered in a handful of body styles. Actually, both the Corvair and the 700 landed around the same time, so these are more alt-universe versions of each other. And I’ve found one for sale.
It appears that the owner has run out of patience and a place to finish this build. It’s not done, and per the listing, the current shop can no longer work on it due to the health conditions of the shop owner. So the car is being sold in pieces in a sort of “Please Take This Off My Hands” plea of an ad. Here’s the text:

There are a lot of parts there. It’s a car you don’t really see over here. And it clearly needs to go to a BMW-addict owner eager to get this thing done. I don’t see it lasting long especially with that wonderful “obo” tacked to the asking price. Someone is going to scoop this up and hopefully turn it into something great.
