South Africa: 1971 Mercedes Pickup Has a Lexus V8

Can be yours for $6,742.

This South African Mercedes has certainly seen a lot in its lifetime. What started out as a 1971 Mercedes-Benz 220 diesel sedan was later converted into a sporty pickup truck with a large bed, a closing lid, and what a seller's claim of "Good paintwork and interior and drives very well." What makes it even more appealing is a surprise that comes under the hood: the old diesel has been removed, and replaced by a Lexus V8 with an automatic transmission.

Few other details regarding the car appear on Sedgefield Classic Cars where it is listed, but if you have 75,000 Rand (roughly $6,742) to spend and an adventurous curiosity, this might be the car/truck/ute for you.
