Default 70s 280 - Diesel?

Hi folks. New member. I've been offered a ~1975 280 (no letters, just 280) that looks in fundamentally good shape. It has a four-cylinder diesel and for the life of me I can't find any reference to the diesel being an option for that model. Am I looking at someone's FrankenBenz?

Likely a W114.

Thanks. Based on that and the fact that someone's drilled out the VIN, I won't be taking on this particular project :-)
