Value of a non running car

Has an 85 380se, hasn't run for almost 4 years... 220k miles... Good condition palomino interior..

What would this be worth as a parts car.... Neighbor came over to see what I would want...I have no idea...

A little help here?

Depends upon what parts are good, but $1000-1200 maybe?

The true value of a car is what it's worth to the buyer. Ask him to make an offer to take the whole thing off your hands.
If you want to mine it for every dollar you'll have a wreck in the yard being stripped as you sell individual parts. You trade inconvience for higher return. Plus you'll have to pay to have whatever junk is left over removed.
A non-working car being neatly removed in one hit is actually a bonus to you, worth keeping in mind.

driving a fast car should feel like falling off a building.
