Hi, my name is Marty. I apologize for the wait. If both of these cars are the same chassis (W107) the engine and transmission will swap over but if you are trying to put the motor and transmission from a W107 chassis into a W113 chassis it will not be possible without major modifications to the chassis.

Please let me know if you have any further questions on this project.

Hi Joh, I'm just following up with you on the Mercedes. It looks like you have not yet rated my service on this question. Do you need anymore help with this?
