I'm VO VT47834....the car you are asking about, VT47835, is the last 1M built for the US market...refurbished or rather reconstructed by Glassoman55

The posts of Glassoman55 reflected passion, devotion and commitment to revive the "lost" 1M cars, including the ultimate US one (#740 - VT47835). Deserves respect.

From http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=709162

"4th - Valencia Orange 1M
This past Monday when I was checking the auctions again I found another one for sale!!! It was being sold yesterday (6/21). well.....I won that one also......It's a VO coupe fully loaded with left side damage.....parts are already on order.....
Which brings me to the reason for my post.....the vin number on one of the aw coupes I have is vp75925...after doing a little research I think this might be the first AW coupe sold in the usa. The VO coupe that I bought yesterday has the vin vt47835.....I searched the vin on this forum and found a post saying that it might be the last VO coupe for the USA ?.....any input or help would be appreciated.....oh...and the other 2 vin numbers were vp76303 which is a fully loaded VO coupe that was european delivery and vp76122 which was an aw coupe owned in upstate New York... Again, i love this forum and thanks for any help in advance concerning the vin #s....
EDIT: the VO coupe purchased yesterday with VIN VT47835 has been confirmed to be the last 1M coupe delivered to the US!"


"I know it's going to bother alot of people to see #740 in this conditon. This is one of the pictures that I had to bid off of.......if you try to look past all the obvious bent sheetmetal, it doesn't look as though there are any major issues......then again.....i wont be sure until its in my shop and on a lift....being that this is a special car i might start a thread and document all the repairs on a daily basis..."

Let drums roll and be ready for a round of applause...

This is the same #740 after Glassoman55's surgery.

Hi Rikx1M, help us out here. It says Salvage Certificate pending. Who currently has the certificate? You or Glassoman? I'm assuming you're the 3rd owner. 1st owner (who wrecked it), 2nd owner Glassoman and you're the third owner. Who put the 1K miles on it, you or Glassoman?
The reason why I ask all this is because your location says your in Heidelberg, Germany and selling only after such little miles have been put on it.
Thanks in advance

This car isn't Rikx's. His is #739/740 while the car in question with the salvage title is #740/740.

Hi Ayao, thank you for the heads up.
Borabora, to answer your question it's $45K plus the buyer fees
So I guess it's Glassoman trying to sell it, then.

I think it's great that Glassoman55 is restoring these to original condition.

I'm very interested to see what the market is for salvage 1Ms. I would have to assume the lack of financing available and loss of BMW factory warranty would cut out a large portion of potential buyers.

I'm curious if the minimum bid == Buy It Now price.

For those interested, the car went for $32.5k to a party from The Republic of Armenia but the minimum bid (reserve) was not met. He's got a lot more invested in it than that. So we'll have to wait and see if its put thru the auction again, or a deal is struck with the winning bidder, otherwise it might crop up for sale via a different channel.
