Seller simply ended the auction early. That happens all the time, he probably had an offer close to what he wanted. Many sellers do this often on ebay. List an item to get the traffic and interest then cancel the auction early so as to not pay the final listing "fees" and sell to the highest bidder that emails him. Many times they list the car with a high reserve on purpose so that it won't sell.

I also think he didn't want it to go full auction end when he originally listed it... being it might not meet his price and sell for 1,000's less then he really wanted. Last I looked it was around $16K. I turned down a much nicer turbo 10 years ago that the seller wanted $14K for. At that time I wanted to pay $12K max. Eventually BMW themselves bought the car (I think for $12K!!!!) and shipped it back to display in their own museum! Yes it was that nice and original!

I hope who ever did buy the car has a good time with it and enjoys it for what it is. I myself can wait for the right car at the right price.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
