    Looks like an interesting car. I've seen that conversion a done a couple of times. It appears that a W126 560SEL motor will drop right into a W123 engine bay.

    Wouldn't bother me a great deal, as long as the exposed metal isn't exposed rust.

    Yeah I've seen a few backyard conversions of M117 engine into a w123. What's interesting about this one is that it left the factory with that engine. Did some digging and it appears to have started life as a AMG brochure car. I'm guessing someone at AMG pulled a leg at MB.
