This brings up a not-very-interesting question---was the /8 the last MB with a column shifter? And if so, was it ever offered with a bench seat instead of buckets? ('Cause the two go hand in hand. If you don't know what I'm talking about, ask your wife.)
The 123 was available with a column shifter and a bench seat. The 116 could also be had with a column shifter, but I'm not sure about the bench (never seen one). I assume that all later column shift models were automatic, but don't hold me to that.
