10k: Mostly Complete Micro: 1961 BMW 700
The BMW 700 was an economy car designed by Giovanni Michelotti and built from 1959 to 1965. Following a cue from the Fiat 500, the BMW 700 was both unitbody construction (a first for BMW) and engine was placed in the back.

This BMW 700 is described as a 90% complete restoration, which is way more desirable than a rusting hulk being used for a chicken coop. The biggest concern is the wiring harness sitting on the floor in the pictures, but this is a wiring setup with about 10 circuits and rewiring should be a simple afternoon event.
The 700 used an enlarged version of the R67 motorcycle engine, a twin cylinder engine that puts out 35 horsepower on a good day. The only transmission available when new was a 4-speed manual and with only 1400 lbs to move around it isn’t bad to drive.
