1965 230 Engine Swap?
Hi, I'm a new Mercedes owner, and new to the forums. My name is Kirk, and I work at Young Choppers and Hot Rods in Marietta, GA.
I just purchased my first Mercedes today - a 1965 fintail. It's a 230 sedan in not-too-bad shape. The engine is not running, and before I went through all the trouble of rebuilding it, I figured I'd see which engines have the same mounts, so I could know which engines wouldn't be too hard to swap into her.
It's got the auto transmission, but I don't see any need to keep that particular transmission. As far as difficulty goes, I fabricate metal and build cars for a living, so I am not a newbie in that aspect... I just don't really know a whole lot about Mercedes.
Looks like a nice forum you guys got here. Thanks for having me!
