Very Custom w123 with V6 (Supercharged) for sale

For sale is my w123 with a Vulcan 60 degree V6. It is mated to a 5 speed over drive transmission that makes roughly 180HP with engine and exhaust work...bolt up the FMIC Eaton M90 kit...and I know it makes a lot more! (I had it hooked up for a while)...

For Sale: 1980 Mercedes Benz 230

I am the "Third Owner" and have had it for the past 16 years...it was imported by my parent's neighbor in the early 80s...and it is a True European Model (Fire extinguisher, Hazard Triangle, etc.)
((German Ownership, Importer's Ownership, My Ownership))

I "restored" it back in 2004;
- Brand new Vulcan V6 with about 35,000 miles now ((I4 was destroyed before I purchased))
- Gets roughly 20MPG
- 17" Monoblock Rims
- Mustang GT rack and pinion with 2.5 turns lock to lock
- Aluminum radiator
- New blue paint with pearled clear coat.
- Rust all removed at the time, chassis painted black
- All new hard lines and soft lines
- Diamond slotted discs
- Custom body kit
- Custom "SL 500" Tail lights
- Power locks, Manual windows and roof
- AM/FM Tape deck with 10 disc CDC

$5,000 OBO

Thanks!

Best retrofit to date...Code 248!

Yes, it is a Ford Powerplant. It is normally traditional in truck and van applications OEM.

This engine is gasket matched, ported and polished with phenolic spacer and JBA Headers connected to the 2.5" stainless exhaust with Borla muffler.

Thanks!

Thank you. It has great pull in the w123, and the final drive gear to the rear end gearing are almost OEM ideal...I can pull up the ratios.

The way my dad and I engineered it into the w123 - it is an absolute breeze to maintain as well...we made it friendly, on all accounts.

The "Vulcan" is essentially Ford's 5.0...minus 2.0. Very robust, very "simple", very solid...

Great car. Thank you. I hope it goes to a great owner / home (garage)
