Wrecking yard alert: Mint W114/115 dash still there.

Put in today PM at Aadlen auto wrecking, Sun Valley, CA, a bright blue W123 300TD turbodiesel with a nice veggie conversion kit.
Should be of interest to one of the diesel / veggie proponents here.

There is also a 1976 W114/115 with great dash. Instruments, wood, and dash look perfect (first row).

I had a look around the yard today, the dash minus instruments is still there.
I think the yard charges under 100 bucks.

A W114 dash with wood, MUST come from a 230.6, 250 or 280(E)..
No W115 model were delivered with wood. At least not as standard..

1991 W140 400 SE - SOLD !!
1973 W115 200 -For sale as project.

Could be an option on the latest models maybe ?
OR, some previous owner may have replaced the original ... ?

i did notice though a 240 of the same year did not come with wood..thought maybe it was an option for the 300's also the 75 240 had manual windows where my 75 300 has electric windows

Also, I guess the 300D of the W115 series are US-specific.. Because here in Europe, it was named 240D 3.0

I think it is a diesel. The dash is black with wood.

Just what I need. The dash on my '75 280 is horrible. I take it you can only grab the parts in person. No website?
