RE: 1977 Mercedes Benz 300 D
Seems to be a pretty decent deal. It's not fast ( it's slow in fact) but reliable, fairly cheap to keep and easy to work on.
Your interior looks quite nice, actually. Get a good shop to rebuild the drivers seat with a new MB Tex cover, springs, etc. It's worth doing it right to avoid a miserable ride. You can throw sheepskins over it as a quick fix, but it's no cheaper for decent covers.
Have someone in a shop check carefully for rust under the body - particularly in suspension and brake hardware. That'll be important in an East Coast car.
The Becker Mexico was spec that year. It's expensive and not particularly wonderful, but looks retro stock. I've seem new stereos dropped in - not hard, work well, look a bit out of place if you even care....
