2001 CL600 At Wrecking Yard

A local wrecking yard is going to be selling this CL whole, rather than parting it out. No key and suspension took a dump. Any idea on what a fair price would be? Interior is in great shape. Front bumper is damaged.

they go at auction for 1000 to 2000.....be careful and make sure the key is available before buying. do a Carfax. and if a salvage title deduct money, start low, like 750. if they want stupid money for a junk yard tell them to go get a key before buying. and mention miles. and then the battery condition, that's another 150-200. the more I think about it, it's a money pit.

Thanks for your comments. They ended up listing it for $3,000. I’m not even thinking about it. Quick question....I know it’s a prior model, but what do you think of a 97 S600 coupe with 90,000 miles on it for 5k? Looks to be in excellent shape.

I believe this would be a wiser decision on the 97 S600 if it's a clean well maintained car, and one that will at least maintain its value if properly cared for. It's definitely less headache than the 01 CL600
