1981 380sl engine swap

I've got a 1981 380sl with a blown engine, and I'm wondering if a MB diesel motor has a chance of fitting in the car. I'm getting into the biodiesel thing and thought it would be nice to use the 380 as a daily driver when its not raining.

Probably. There should be plenty of room once the v8s out.
