I have a friend who installed this Mercedes Turbo Diesel engine into his Custom 37 Chevy Street rod and got 46 mpg with it. He tells me that it will fit into an Astro or Safari if you use an electric fan instead of the factory bladed fan.
He has since removed it and will sell the package for $1500.
Here is what he has....Mercedes 300D Turbo Diesel engine with 80K miles. (He rebuilt the turbo before he installed it into the street rod)The adapter plate to bolt to a Chevrolet Transmission and all the bolts for the motor mounts, After market Air conditioner compressor mount for the motor, Factory Vacuum pump and a new water pump.
He is out of town for the next 5 days but I will give you his phone number by sending me a private e-mail.
I am planning on coming to the 45th Nationals and if by chance anyone makes a deal with John before then, I will gladly bring it with me to the event.
