It's more like a Rolls or Jag than a BMW.
A restored version can sell for $25-$30K, it might be doable.
Cars not gone, but a more involved restore. All the glass is there, trim, numbers matching engine I assume.
A better drivable version.... cool car for sure.
Unfortunately it would prob cost $50-70K for the body/interior before anything else. Someone needs to recreate all the body panels which are toast. It was probably sitting in a field and has rusted from the bottom up. We are talking hand hammering out new panels, old school style. The interior is completely gone because of water damage, the wood is just gone. I've fully restored a tii with a good body, and I know what was involved in terms of cost and sourcing parts. Most everything on this car is NLA from BMW. And at the end of the day, you would prob be $80K into something worth $25-$30K.
