Hi, I found a r129 300sl-24v (1992 model) equiped with 3199cc engine for sale but not sure whether this engine is factory fitted or been replaced. The engine number in registration card is 104981xxxxx and chasis no 1290612xxxxx. Google around found that 300sl-24v is equiped with 2960cc and not the 3199cc engine. Please share your view. Thank you.

That, I believe, is the case.

In Europe, all 300-24s were all 3 litre, not 3.2. I think that, in the US market, some 300s had the 3.2 litre.

However, your registration card says 104.981 and that is definitely the 3 litre 24 valve engine. So, if it has the 3.2 engine, it's been changed.

Can you post a picture of the engine? That way, someone can confirm which engine's installed.
