Grant, You might try chatting up Randy Steele at EPS, Ltd. You can google that to find his web site and contact info.
Randy has a warehouse full of NOS stuff, but I don't know how much of it is W123 related. Can't hurt to ask. Tell him I told you to contact him. That will make the prices go up, I suspect. I had a W123 coupe once. An 85 model, it was fully dressed out and I tweaked it as much as possible. Despite being a diesel, it would haul *ss big time. Great car, horribly impractical with two growing boys. Sometimes you just gotta take the plunge so you can have the experience, however....
