Hello!

Glad to see there is message board and a big group of people keeping these beautiful machines alive!

Thank you to Paul for finding me information on my 600
100012-12-000358

Besides hearing the " I hope you have deep pockets " Line. I wanted to see what my 600 might be worth. I recently had the gentleman from Beverly Hills Car Club Alex Manos offer me $7,000 I refused the offer of course.

The 600 has been sitting outside since 2012. The vehicle did run in 2012. The weather took its toll on the 600 leaving a fair amount of rust on fenders doors trunk etc... Bodywork does not scare me but what does is the Hydraulic/Suspension on the 600 and where would I even start to get the wood refinished.


Please let me know your thoughts I wouldn't mind doing a 5-10 year project on the car. But also would just like to know what YOU feel the car is worth as it sits today.

IMHO your car looks to need >$60-80K to get back to good running condition. I imagine others that know more than I here may up that price. There is a fair condition one on fleabay for $74K that admits he purchased it for $65K 2 years ago and does not indicate why he is asking $20K more for the car.

One sold on bring a trailer in a better condition than yours Sold For $43,000 On 5/24/18
and a complete basket case for Sold For $33,001 On 8/10/18

A rather nice one Sold For $82,500 On 9/18/18. You need to examine your intents closely as for your 5 years work it may be a much better decision to buy a good solid driver car and sell what you have to someone else. Of course if you enjoy the work and want to do that is fine also.

Please continue to let us know what you do with your car.

Good luck, you will need it

On the Komforthydraulik and Air Suspension system contact Martin Werminghausen. He is the last word on these systems, based out of Massachusetts. Prices are very fair for the level of absolute professional level of work you will receive in return.

Rumb thank you very much for the Reply. I did see the 600s you listed as-well while doing research. I am unsure what I am exactly going to do with the car its tough simply because it was my uncles that recently passed away.

Given the prices listed and the research I am thing 12-18k would be a fair for sale number.

I don't know.
