1975 280 sedan. 1999 Chevy LS V8. N. California. $3900

This car is located in Sacramento California.

1975 Mercedes four door sedan. Has a 1999 Chevy 4.8 V8 (LR4). This is very similar to an LS1 but smaller and with an iron block. Rated horsepower is 270. This is approximately double the power the car came with from the factory. The car runs and drives. It has only been on the road approximately 50 miles since it was built. It has a 4L60E automatic overdrive transmission. Rack and pinion steering.

The AC is hooked up and charged but is not blowing very cold. It may need to be evacuated and recharged.

So far it runs right at about 195 degrees, which I think is right at the thermostat rating. Electric fan. Camaro radiator and AC condensor. The underdash part of the AC is mercedes.

Has new racing seats up front. Chevy Silverado gauge cluster mounted in the dash. Needs more trim work.

The motor and or tranny seem to hunt a little bit when you are cruising down the road. Not sure if the torque converter is locking and unlocking.
