Gold in Scrap Cars?

February 24, 2011

Is there gold in scrap cars? We have a Towing and Auto Salvage Business. We scrap cars and trucks all the time. If there is gold in the cars where would it be? I know about Cats.
Just wondering. Thanks for any help.

Hi, Mary.

To my knowledge, except for some possible thin gold plating on small areas of radio and other electronic connectors there is no gold in automobiles.

I do not know about gold, but I believe that there is some platinum and palladium, around one to two grams used for the catalyst converter.
