Question '39 Benz Engine Conversion to Late Model

I want to put a late model, relatively, drive train in a '39 320 cabriolet. I'd like to go with an engine and trans that doesn't present black box (electrical) nightmares. Essentially, I need a powerful 6 w/ as simple an installation as possible. Any suggestions??

320 Cab

From the only 56 built copies today only about 20 vehicles exist. Such a vehicle in its collection to possess, is therefore for many lovers a worthwhile goal.

I'm right there with Arthur Dalton. You are about to DRASTICALLY decrease the value of a rare classic.

Good luck,
