So what does a salvaged 1M sell for when it's been fixed?
I understand you might not have an exact figure, but what's a ballpark figure?

thanks for posting photos. this is a very interesting thread.

you really did a great job restoring the first two. cosmetically i would never had been able to guess they were in an accident. The stripes look good on the alpine white.

VP75913 is the first US car regarding your Qs in 1st post.
VP75925 is the 3rd US car with March 2011 production date.
Vp76122 is 137th with prod date of June 2011.
VT47835 is the last US car.
VP76303 is 279th.

Great collection of 1Ms.

When people ask me what's a ballpark price on what these cars will sell for I answer with the old cliche that there worth what someone is willing to pay for them......with out getting into details on what I paid for each, i can tell you that I paid in the 20's for all 4.....factor in parts and labor and rarity and I think that getting high 30's or low 40's is realistic....I think these coupes are good options if your someone who wants to modify by either changing the color or by mechanical means.... I've seen people take brand new cars straight to body shops and paint them.......I could never bring myself to do that but with these cars the sky is the limit to modify them.......its guilt free......lol.....light fat free yogurt.......and alot cheaper....

You do have the first Alpine white. If you click on the link I posted earlier and under 1st column titled "Row" VP75925 is 3rd US car and 1st AW.

And for those interested, the self piercing riveting is something I have never seen and is a pretty cool concept. Theres a great illustration in this video. Enjoy!
