Damn non-Americans using that damn foreign measurement system. :eek
That "foreign" system is only what the rest of the world uses. The US is still stuck in retardo world when it comes to this, and they wonder why they can't sell their shit outside their own borders, except for movies and airplanes. :wink

BTW, that Canadian E320 has orthopedic AND heated seats. Uber rare combo.

The owner (a member here) and I have been in talks about this very scenario, but he needs the thing gone yesterday, and I'm currently swamped with other projects and have very little extra space. I pulled the engine from a hit n' runned wagon a couple years ago. It started right up, as in right now. It's killin' me that it just sits on CL. I haven't seen the vehicle itself, but even as a parts car, it's worth twice as much as the current asking price

How many miles on the engine?

How much to install it in the body?

Funny you should ask...coincidentally I have the instrument cluster sitting behind me. 279k. Like I said, even after sitting for months, I glowed it, and the thing fired right up and settled into a very smooth idle. Smoked a bit, but I'm confident that an Italian Tune Up and fuel system service would resolve that in short order. To be clear, I have no connection to this, other than the fact that I sold the engine to the current owner.

Assuming he still has the stuff, I sold the engine with the harness, ECU and everything needed to theoretically swap the engine into a gas 124

If that car was in Texas, I would be all over it.

Convert SLS to conventional suspension? long time ago went to look at a TE wagon with my son and as the guy drove up the rear end was bouncing up and down really bad and almost dragging the ground,figured rear suspension had some kind of issue SLS?,still don't know enough about that system.
Cost of some of the sls parts new are so expensive. looks like basic air shocks.
w124 SLS Conversion
