Hey! It's nice to see another South African around here. Go have a look, it can't hurt to at least have a look at it. As frankflynn pointed out, look for rust. Remember that a little bit of surface rust means a lot of underlying rust so use your own intuition in this case and keep in mind what your budget is. For that price it MUST be in a good state as I've come across beautiful examples of the w114/5 series in that price range. The other thing, those side mirrors are not the original and is seems that they have modified the little swivel window to house the mirrors. Good luck and be sure to post some pics.
