    No prior detailed records of this car in my database, either. I added it this morning.

    It's not really AutoCheck's fault. If a car is in an accident that was not reported to insurance or DMV... there may be no record available. Note on this car there has not been any registration since 2004, my guess is the car was wrecked somewhere before renewal was due in 2006, and it was parked. Strange why it just popped up for sale now though. Would be interesting to see a CarFax report on it.

    That's my next victim if I don't get the approval on the "mature mileage" CoPart car!

    There are some clean/straight cars available with clean titles, some possibly from southern/western climates without rust, which may be a far better deal for ~$10k or so. This particular car could have some expensive damage up front, a 400E parts car would likely be needed to sacrifice parts for the resurrection. Which makes the $10k+ cars start to look more enticing...

    Yea I understand that very well, Im in the auto body business and I happen to have a friend who has a 400e laying around that I can probably get for under 1000 bucks and it has all the parts I would need.

    Hi,

    It seems that it has been auctioned. Do you have any clue how much it has been sold for?

    cheers

    A day before the auction i saw it had $4300 as pre-bid. I don't know what was the final selling price, but i assume it ended up being somewhere around $6500 - 7000. Just my assumption based on other 500E-s I saw being sold at IAAI lately.

    Month or two ago there was one with 360K that went for 6.5. pre auction bid clean title Crazy prices these days people hold on to the 500's I bought this one here you guys are talking about by the way Let me tell you guys this way I cant say how much I paid but I can tell you these cars went up in the last 3 years. There was one a gold one 90K few weeks ago Salt water damage went for 7K pre live auction. People say I cant sell this car for 7K fixed on the forum well I bet on copart fixed People will bid to 10K easy which would not really be profitable for me but I would make lunch money so to say. I would not buy it if I did not have a 94 e420 and a 300ce with a good front same collor for parts. I hope I saved another one from the crusher STOP CRUSHING w124's PPL!!!!!

    You misunderstood, I meant NON-fixed cuz your initial post/offer was to sell it as is (non-fixed).

    If it is fixed and a decent car it should be something around 10-12K max though
