1977 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series 240D

We are offering up a 1977 Mercedes 240D 4 speed manual sedan. One owner blue and yellow California plate car. 151k original miles. Original owner passed away early 2016 and his family is selling the estate.
I am a amateur Mercedes enthusiast but I do know a little bit about Mercedes diesel. I have also had a very well known Mercedes Diesel mechanic look at the car. Engine is unbelievable! No blow by and purrs! Only pump diesel was used in this engine! The car had been sitting awhile and so numerous things have been done to the car to ensure this car can be driven across the country if needed for new owner. Car has had oil change/diesel purge/both fuel filters replaced/upper control arms/alignment/valves adjusted/new master slave and slave cylinder/new rear axels/new tires.I might be forgetting more new parts. Some of these parts needed to replaced and some were optional and we had the mechanic do it anyway. Car is pretty impressive for almost being 40 years old. Drives great and steering is straight and a pleasure to drive.
Original owner was an electrical engineer and was his own mechanic on this Mercedes. All maintenance was performed by himself. AC and heat work along with most everything else. Maintenance booklet was filled out for the first 7 or so years. All other manuals come with the car. Owner also purchased a 1980 Mercedes 300D wagon which kept a lot of miles off both vehicles. That car is sold but I feel its important to let the new owner of this 240D understand why this car is such low mileage. Any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Overall my assessment of the car is that it is a true surviving blue and yellow plate California car. It seems to run and drive like a well taken care of car. I have put over 100 miles on it. While not a lot of miles, I just like to have an idea what I'm offering on eBay for the new owners benefit. Although a used car, I got that typical Mercedes diesel feeling that I could drive the car to New York and back and be fine. If you know these cars then you know how reliable they are. Car shows very well and I think it is nicer in person than the photos show. Im not a photographer and I feel as if my camera is average at best. Paint is nicer than photos show and interior color is more of what the door panel pictures show. As you can see in the photos, just a nice survivor oriignal owner/original paint/original interior and original blue and yellow california plate car.
