Ideal: Engine Swap


I recently bought a 1964, 190dc (W110).
I would like to get more power into the vehicle and was thinking that an engine swap might be a good idea.

What would an ideal donor be, considering a near perfect match for the chassis, transmission, axle, brakes.

I would appreciate any help on this.

What I have done is drop in an engine from a W123 240D . I just had to fit an oil filter on a remote bracket but that was basically all that was needed. If you are going for a LOT MORE power ,go for a 606 turbo diesel.
