If you really want, it should be possible to retrofit a 603 or 606 engine to a 90-ish gasser wagon body. The best car for the transplant would probably be a rear-wrecked '87 diesel wagon, that way you'd get all of the SLS pump stuff. I don't know about final drive rations, etc., you'd have to do some research.

I have also read on these forums that the 95 E300's have a 24 gallon tank but I believe it is only 21.1 gallons.....Was this an option or standard?
