"Unusual 280 S converted to diesel operation. A 3 liter 5-cylinder diesel is now fitted."


The previous owner was a skilled mechanic who fitted a 5 cylinder 300 diesel engine and 5 gearbox in this car, the engine was converted for rapeseed oil operation. He then put in a 50 liter tank for rapeseed oil in the trunk at the back seat of the rear seat, the original 60 liter diesel tank still remains. The car starts on diesel and runs until it gets warm then you turn a button on the dashboard and the car runs on oil / rapeseed oil. Before stopping the car, switch to diesel and drive for a while before turning off the car.
In this way you can go both luxurious and cheap, the car is tax exempt and the insurance is about 1200 SEK a year. It comes with 15 pcs of 10 liter cans of rapeseed oil.

  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends.
