1967 250se 2 door coupe possible project
I have my eye on a 1967 250se 2 door coupe automatic that I may buy and do a restoremod. It's in ok running condition but definitely needs work. I want to make it into a daily driver so I'm thinking that the only mods I'll do are to swap in a 280se motor and rearend gear cluster. If possible I'd like to swap in a DOHC 2.8L with electronic injection, but I don't know if this is feasible.
What is the newest 280 6 cylinder I can bolt in without any major modification? Do I need to swap the tranny? And am I going to find one in the US without breaking the bank?
Also, where is the best place to buy parts for this car here in California? I'm sure I'm going to have to replace most of the suspension bushings and mounting bushings at least.
Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jim
