1k: Seller Submission: 1969 Mercedes-Benz 250S W114 with Buick V8

Each day we at the Daily Turismo open the tips inbox with equal parts; curiosity, anticipation and apprehension.  There are few things, however, that we always want to see; classic Mercedes with perfect bright-work, anything with a swapped Buick/Olds/Pontiac/Rover V8 and sub $2k cars…so…imagine our surprise when seller Shaheen submitted the following.  Find this 1969 Mercedes-Benz 250S W114 with Rover V8 for sale in Bozeman, MT for $1,500 via craigslist.

It isn’t clear if this is the 215 cubic inch Buick/Rover V8 that was used in many British cars over the years, or another Buick V8 from the GM parts sharing era…but it is mated to a column shifted automatic transmission and needs some TLC to get back on the road.  Furthermore, seller sent us the following note: 

Got it for kicks, don’t have time for it. I’ll be adding more pics and
info to the ad this weekend. Funds from the car are going to my FD RX7

Everyone reading this, stop what you are doing and pray to whatever God or gods you believe in, this single thought.  Please.  Rover V8 powered FD.
