87 sdl for sale

Saw 87 sdl in the autotrader 42k miles $ 22500.00.The car looks good but does anyone think they could get that for it? Can this little use hurt the car as well.

They are dreaming!

And yes, if it sat in the sun and rubber seals dried out and algae started growing in the fuel tank then it deteriroated by sitting.
The best car is one that is driven somewhat frequently and for a diesel it needs to be driven hard.

I wonder if it still has the Nasty Trap Oxidizer in it? any bets?

Some idiot will buy it. The temptation due to the low mileage will be irresitable.

But, whether it honestly has 42K is the real question. Somebody with nimble fingers can clock an SDL in less than one hour.

Saw that one yesterday. Pictures looked nice, but too little driving is worse than driving the wheels off. Definitely too rich for my blood...maybe they'll consider a $3K offer
