1984 Mercedes 190E with Ford 5.0 V8 Engine For Sale

Hello everyone, I have a 1984 190E for sale with a Ford 5.0 V8 conversion. Because there are a lot of Mercedes enthusiasts on this site, I thought I'd list it here first before it goes up for sale in San Francisco.

Professional installation (Stuttgart Automotive Website Homepage) with much time and money invested. 115,600 miles with 11,000 miles on the engine. This V8 is light and has a lot of aftermarket support available, with legal mods could reliably put out 300+ hp. Weighed in after conversion at a little over 2800 lbs. Very solid chassis for the swap. Handles well and has great acceleration from idle to redline. Straight body and most of the interior is in good shape. The only way to tell the car is modified is a slight bulge that was professionally grafted in the hood to accommodate the V8 intake. The 190E is a very solid chassis for a V8 engine swap, will make a great project that needs minimal work to finish. Although it could be driven anywhere in its current state, finishing the 4 things listed below will make the car ready to be approved by the air resources board here in California. Out of state buyers may have different rules depending on where you live. After building two other V8 conversions my time has since gone into other motorsports, will sell for $2800. Adult owned and never abused, located in Sacramento CA. Serious inquiries only, please PM me if interested.

Thanks,

Brett

could this car be driven as a daily as it sits right now (if emissions weren't a problem, I live in FL)? What would it take to make this a reliable daily driver?

1966 Ford Falcon: 150 shot of nitrous, swapped in AOD tranny. Stall converter. 408 installed

1995 E320: gone...sorta

1996 SL36: AMG///|Getrag clicky

Vipercrazy - They all had their perks...below you'll find some pics of the others. The 240Z with 400 carbed hp at 2400 lbs had a very raw, badass feeling to it. In many ways the 190E has more potential than the Z though, as the suspension is superior and has a MUCH stiffer chassis that is well suited to the swap. The RX7 to be fair though is in a whole other class. With 530 crank hp and 2800 lbs, it handled ridiculously well and could keep up with a lot of motorcycles (quarter-mile in the high tens).

1966falcon - If you don't have to worry about emissions then the car needs very little. As stated, the motor only has 11,000 miles and judging from the reliability of these engines should get you an awful long way. Front sway bar bushing, gear shifter boot, and some back tires would be the main things you'd need to do. It currently doesn't have a radio either but I guess that falls in the fluff category.

Just curious???

Does anyone offer a kit for this sort of swap? I have an 84 Lorinser 190e that I have been thinking about dropping a 5.0 or LS2 in. I can't find a kit for this anywhere. If I can't get a kit I can fab, but if someone knows what and where to grab it would make things SOOO much easier.

Thanks for any help,

Sean
