TacSew 111-155 is a nice solid machine. Several reputable online vendors sell it. (Allbrands, SewingGold, and KeystoneSewing are all well-known dealers, though there are many others.)

I know you're looking for used, but driving all over to buy a Craiglist machine, maybe facing a service fee, and definitely having to buy a servo motor (if you've never used a clutch motor before) makes the approx. $900 delivered cost of this unit seem like a rather good deal.

You can probably turn right around and resell it for at least 75% of your cost at the end of the project -- though you'll find this is a handy tool to have around for all sorts of DIY stuff, not just auto upholstery.
