W123 Black Dash With Few Cracks; What's it Worth?

I have a black W123 dash in my wrecked car that I'd be willing to part with but I don't know how much its worth. Anyone? I also have decent palomino interior bits if anyone's interested.

Seth, once the dash is cracked it loses most of it's value.

Kinda like virginity.....

I had an 85 300TD with a pinkamino interior and what I swore was a black dash. I looked at it in the car everyday for four years.

Then I pulled the glovebox door to do some repairs and had it next to a blue dash and realized that it was actually a very very dark brown.

Just a thought.

I've had that argument several times. The black dash came with grays and black, all of the bamboo/palomino/cream/tobacco et al interiors through the 124 and 201 have dark brown.

To the OP, I think that most people aren't willing to go through the effort of putting in a dash unless it is perfect, a dash cover is easier, but maybe I'm wrong.

Another problem is that the cracks are virtually impossible to repair, making even a lightly cracked dash just about as undesirable as a heavily fissured one. Cost wise and appearance wise, a dash cap is generally the better option.
