Sneaky seller - I was going to e-mail the higher bidders a link to this thread and the seller has kept the identities secret.

You guys are good at spotting this stuff.

My guess is that the shrivel is more dependent on exposure to direct sun and heat for years than to age itself.

Not every odo slips, just a lot. I wouldn't put it past that seller to actually roll it back, or replace it with one that was modified or "repaired".
I got a speedo/odo assy out of a '78 300D from a salvage yard, and it wasn't working. I repaired the slipping gear and installed it in the smoker. (I did notate that when I sold the car. )
