Yes its a 5cyl turbo OM617 in it. Its in full running condition.
I already have a blue 116 with non-turbo OM617 and a W111 fintail with OM615 4cyl.
I'm gonna buy the green w116 parts car and graft its stuff to:-
To The blue 116 = entire front-end suspension; auto window motors; trunk lock assy;brakes calipers & discs; Alternator; Fuel gauge (tank part);Rear seat belts; Pwr Steering Pump; Water pump;Merc Rims x5; steering wheel
To the W111 finny = All 4 seats; centre console; bonnet lock; differential; carpets & mats; Aircon vents & controller; Head light switch; fusebox & complete wiring; battery
The remaining things I will sell eg: manual gearbox & lever; windscreen & rear screen & surrounding chrome;windows glasses; bumpers; front grille; dashboard; speedometer cluster.
Then I will decide which of my existing cars get the turbo 617 from the parts car and I will sell its own engine after swapping.
I hope all this ends well and Godforbid I don't end up regreting the decision to buy the parts car.
