V8 powered Mercedes Benz W123 wagon

1982 Mercedes 300TD V8 1

I enjoy interesting engine swaps and while this one uses the ubiquitous Chevrolet small block V8 it is interesting because the engine has gone into a 1982 Mercedes Benz 300TD station wagon.

The swap uses a 383cid V8 and looks very well done as well as including functional A/C. Looks like headers were used to solve for clearance issues.

The interior looks fantastic. I do quite like Nardi wood steering wheels but not sure if it works in this particular application. As well I might dye the dash cover to match the dash myself. Bonus marks for using the stock gauge cluster.

Outside the car looks stock except for the chrome later model Mercedes wheels. A set of coloured coded hubcaps would be my choice but that would limit the tire size.
