If this one-owner, three-pedal W123 diesel sedan checks out, it could be a great buy at $8000. There aren’t many details in the ad, but among the promising signs I see are sheepskins covering the seats front and back, which could mean the original surfaces are still showroom fresh. The dash is covered, as well, which has hopefully protected it from any cracking. And the rear parcel shelf also appears to be unfaded.
Offered on craigslist HERE by its original owner in the Monterey area for a reasonable (given the condition) $8000. Definitely worth a closer look if you are shopping for an outstanding W123 example with a rare manual gearbox.
