There is nothing wrong with post 84 diesel w123's; as long as they are well maintained, etc. You want full service history for these cars as well as unmolested condition.
This car is fairly "molested" and shows signs of neglect. If it weren't for the new paint/rust free condition it'd be a sub $3000 car easily. Hack speaker install, SLS removed, broken headlight surround, broken blinker, and overall doesn't look all that "fresh" on the inside. Having said that, the car would probably be priced a few grand higher if it didn't have any of these issues.
You're looking at another $2000 easily in repairs. Which brings the total to $5000. We still haven't addressed the interior, which is rare due to 1) wagon specific parts and 2) blue wagon interior parts.
So for $5000 you can find a nicer wagon, no broken lights, etc., w the functioning SLS, original stereo equipment, etc.
Nearly 800 page views and no one has bid the minimum...which should tell anyone that its overpriced...seller should be lucky to get $3000 for the car.
Also, you should post this question in the w123 forum as it will get viewed by folks who know these cars inside and out.
