280se engine hi compression fully functional many new parts $4200

This is a 280sl engine out of a 280se coupe, production date 11/1969. It can be easily be used in a Pagoda all you need to do is take out the plug and hook up your tachometer drive. That is it, nothing else needs to be done. This engine was disassembled and completely gone through by a Mercedes master mechanic and winner of the Mercedes worldwide award in 1980. All questionable parts were replaced. The block has original sized pistons, no need to bore it out was in good shape to start. Honed, new rings, new front and rear crankshaft seals, cleaned and lapped valves, this engine is the high compression later heads (the ones with the oval gaskets). Engine and lines painted (incorrectly but looks great) Was ready to go when the owner sourced a 3.5 V8 for his coupe restoration project. The shop I use was stuck with this engine, I said I would help sell it. I am putting it up here before we ebay it. Any questions just call I can get more pictures or connect you directly with the mechanic who did the work this past winter and spring. Asking 4,200
Thanks, Bob
The engine is located in Downers Grove ,Illinois, the shop does have a crate they can use to ship but the engine is very heavy.
Again they have done me many favors in the past so I would love to help them out. I witnessed this engine being worked on for a few months and I can attest to the good work the shop does.
