W107 Engine Swap

I'm thinking about buying a seized up W107 (560SL) and swapping the bad 5. liter engine for a 351 or small block 350 for max performance. Am I insane, or has anybody heard of this being done successfully? Where would I find a conversion kit?

Run "engine swap" through the Search feature and you'll find all sorts of transplants. Each was a custom job, there are no "kits" so to speak, like the ever popular Chevy block into Jaguar XJ chassis kit.
