Previous Owner listed the following narrative regarding the Vehicle : Authentically restored by Owner / Driver over a 12 year time period. Originally 71,000 Miles, the Car now has 72,965 Miles. History ; The Car was delivered new in Italy to a Doctor who arranged for overseas delivery to the U.S. where he lived in Brooklyn, New York. He drove the Car until the early 1970's until it was taken off the road for mechanical repairs. However, the work was never completed and the Car remained in storage until my purchase from a re-seller in 1998 ; Effectively making me the second Owner.

Owner / Restorer posted many problem solving Technical articles on the Original MBZ 300 Club Forum. Headrest are optional Accessory for the 300 d and no other Mercedes. They are difficult to find and require the chrome mounting Cleats which are even more difficult to source.
