WANTED: 250 S/SE W108 Radiator, trans cooler, oil cooler
I'm transplanting a 1968 W108 280S engine / trans into 1967 W108 250S body and also some of the accessories. The 250S came without engine, trans, radiator, etc. I have discovered that the radiator from the 280S is sized for an entirely different opening than the opening in the 250S. I am looking for suggestions as to what to do. I can either:
a) find a 1967 250 S / SE and salvage the parts (difficult but not impossible to find)
b) modify the 250 S to have a bigger opening (which I don't want to do given that the car is not going to be re-painted
c) have something built???
