Clean and original W123 examples are pretty hard to find these days, but this one from the penultimate year of the model looks to be the real deal, with shiny original paint, a tidy interior, no dash cracks, an original windshield (with Daimler sticker), and even an unfaded speedometer needle (still orange while most on these cars have faded to pale yellow).

There are plenty of lesser examples out there for lesser money, but I think it would be near impossible – or at least impossibly expensive – to bring them up to the level of this one. That’s why I’d say the almost $13k ask is not too unreasonable, especially if, as the seller indicates, that this is basically a needs-nothing car.

Offered on craigslist HERE by a private seller in the Atlanta area for $12,850.
