1971 280S 6cyl

I have a 1971 280S atomatic and the motor died. I have found a 1965 220S Finback with 2195cc 6cyl twin carb, 4 speed. would this motor fit in my 1971??

Hi drhy, how exactly did your motor ( I presume an M130) die. Those are particularly good motors, with certainly more ooomph than the older 220. It would fit in the engine bay by the way, with a bit of rejigging on the engine mountings, manifolds and hoses. Also, from my past experience it is easier to find the 280 motors and parts, than the older model.

good luck
