1972 Mercedes Benz 280se
4 Doors (more whores), sun roof, power everything

This car is running an '02 LM7 using the f-body accessory drive, GTO front sump oil pan, 4L60e, custom driveshaft, and stock rear end. I will be pulling the engine/trans/wiring harness/ecu, leaving pretty much everything you need to bolt in your lsx swap. Everything is custom made, not the prettiest, but functional. Power steering hook ups, heater hoses hook up, etc. Here recently the windows stopped working, I'm guessing a fuse, but I can't find much about the electrical system on these cars. There is rust, it's mainly, but not limited to the trunk/lower quarters. This is a project car!! It does have full interior. I'd love to hold onto it, but I'd like to get a little more serious about racing and have an S13 coupe ready for the swap. This car with a half tank weighed out at 3600 pounds, so it's not too heavy, but I'm looking to drop 1000 pounds.

Shit's boss. If you can't handle it, move on! This car gets an unimaginable amount of attention. If you plan to daily drive it, learn to leave an extra 5 minutes for anywhere you plan to park and don't be caught off guard by people driving around you asking you to pull over to talk about it. Sounds like a salesman pitch, but you could ask about anyone around town and they'd know the car.

Firm @ $2000 but willing to take partial trades on S13 LSX swap parts, heads, engines, auto transmissions, maybe full T56 swaps, etc

I know this is old as hell but need to know if you modified the GTO oil pan to clear the subframe? If you cut the tunnel to fit the 4l60e? Had to modify the steering? ... and any other issues or custom parts you needed?

I wish you had a build thread....

Do you still have this? Really wish you were selling it complete...but literally all it needs is a pullout from a truck? Everything else is ready to plug up? Fuel, cooling, etc...?

Oh...just thought about A/C is there?
