It looks like a [potting] shed. With that rear overhang, once loaded it will drive like one. $7,000 - I sold an E23 7 series for <$700 in 2000. A few days later it passed a UK MOT test* without work (so the dealer who took it in part-ex could sell it for >$1,500).
Hardly a classic, and with no official mod' to run on unleaded AFAIK, not an easy car to keep running thirty years after it was made.
Very poor value at the price.

Well, that's the understatement of the year... I wouldn't take a 30-year-old 7-series unless it was, like, *free*, and then I'd sell it for $200, or $500 if it was in really great shape, which may be its true market value.
$7,000 Guffaw
