Getting back to the original question, it seems the 250SL shell on ebay is the right vehicle to put a light weight, alloy block v8 in. If nothing else, if it doesn't fit nicely, you haven't hurt a good car.
As for the current twists in this thread, you mean armed with a sawsall, I could have dealt with my rusty W111 220se/c and the titleless W126 500sel sedan (with hydro suspension) all in one shot?
