Saw that ad a week ago. If the velours had been without large holes, it would have been one to watch. However, the back seat is gone for sure. The (honest) seller shows a picture of the holes in the floor, representative of the other yet hidden holes and rot that will be. If you add to that the mess that is the engine bay, you're left with the (maybe functioning)ABS and the column shifter in a car that probably still needs all the normal repairs and doesn't stand out besides being an SEL.
Still, if one would be looking for a restoration object, if bought cheaply, it would have made for an interesting starter.
It'st 3500.. I would have walked away 1000 euros ago, already on a new hunt for another column shifter for sale.

NOS gear indicator. He says he'll sell for 50 euros plus shipping.

Great deal! They have about 600 of them in stock. They may give you a discount, if you can speak Chinese! ;D

Brand "C-Box" (0305), pretty big brand that's been around for a long time.
I would think this brand is for the US-Ca market, what Kissling was for the Euro-market

1st Gen LHD dash in black, with trim. Looks pretty good.

Luke, I think it's a 2ng generation late dash, as there is no ridge in the middle of the wood panels.  I make mention of this because the 1st gen early dash wood is not interchangeable with the 1st gen late dash wood, and vice versa.  The profile behind the wood in the actual dash is different between 1st gen early and late.

no, its a first-gen-dash. You can see it because the speakers are mounted below the wood panels.
And only some early dashs do have the ridge (my car with early dash also had no ridge).
Maybe only very early cars do have the ridge, or only the 280?

Mounting an late dash in early cars is no big problem - I have done it. There are only small
differences in the mounting of the handbrake knob (LHD-car). I just reused these parts of my
old early dash in the new late dash and it works.
