Is a non running 300SEL worth anything ?

I am helping dispose of the remains of an estate of a friend who
passed away three years ago. Of the cars there are two to go.

The Mercedes is a 300SEL. I am helping search for the title to
get the year etc.

The car until last year had been in storage for something like 15

Any suggestions would be appreciated

I'd say the combination of it being a 4-door, non-running and the devastating fact that it's sat still for so long thus requiring lots of going over to make roadworthy again, aside from other possible issues, means it's not worth much on today's depressed market. It would be a good project car for someone in the family perhaps who has the money to put into it and maybe at least try to get it running for better resell, or even as a driver.

Take the grill off, hang it on a wall, and junk or part out the rest of it...

Tell me more about the car, I love 300s and know them well. Interior pics please? Detail pics, like seats, dash, miles, history etc. I would hate to see a noble beast die so young. I am in Spokane, WA. A detalied PM is fine.
