diesel engine?

hi im new to the forum and i own a 1964 220s. it originally had the straight six gas engine and an automatic tranny before i bought it. when i bought it the engine was completely shot the owner ran all of the oil out of it on accident and locked it up. i was going to try and find another engine just like it and put it in this car but i decided that i would like to have a diesel more. so my question is where can i find a 4 cylinder diesel engine from around that same era in running condition. i already have a four speed tranny that im going to put in it. all i need is the engine so if anybody can help please reply. thanks[:)]

RE: diesel engine?

The engine you want is the 200 D diesel engine. Sad to say that most of these were junked long ago. You may find one in a wrecked car however. Search your area for import junkyards. You don't say where you are located. You can plan on buying the transmission for the diesel as well. This is a project!
