Can anyone tell me about car 52201? It sounds like it's in the ProvaMo registry but I'm not having any luck with registering. I purchased the car going on a month now and would like to know some history if possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

According to the registry it was offered for sale by Beverly Hills Car Club on 1/23/14 for $26,500. Pictures indicate it was pretty rough. And had an automatic transmission installed!! Came with a few odds and ends parts....and no windshield.
I remember seeing pictures of that car. I have no idea how the auto trans worked because it had no driveshaft. Amusing as to say the least. Hope you can turn the car around and make it a stunner.
EDIT: This is 2201. This is not the car being discussed below, Thank Gawd!
Seems like 2201 was missing the rear deck lid, as well. It may have had some issues on the test drive...
Hopefully they upgraded the transmission with something more appropriate....
Skoczek, Glad you have joined us as the new guy. Welcome. We have a really good group of very helpful people here. I assure you this is not hazing. Rocky posted pictures of what the seller (Beverly Hills Car Club) advertised a being chassis #2201. Those are the pictures that were posted in January 2014. I wonder if Husker has the original ad saved so that we can be sure we are all discussing the same chassis number. Either way you have a nice car now.
I find it odd that you car is an "L" version and the one in the picture is a Pre-L. Most people don't convert a Per-L to an L. Also #2201 should be a pre-L based on its early chassis number. Hummm I have a feeling we are not talking about the same car.
Mystery solved. Your car is #6493 that should be a L. The one in the picture is #2201 and not your car.
I was wondering why some people decided your VIN was 2201 when you had written 52201. The body number is a different method of identification not commonly used in discussion
your VIN plate indicates your car is what we would refer to as VIN 6493.
that would certainly explain why your car looks so different than the automatic equipped Beverly Hills car.
Now we can start discussing the car you actually have.
So many numbers stamped all over the car, I guess I was a loss to which one to go by!
