ThisSouth African Mercedes has certainly seen a lot in its lifetime. What startedout as a 1971 Mercedes-Benz 220 diesel sedan was later converted into a sportypickup truck with a large bed, a closing lid, and what a seller's claimof "Good paintwork and interior and drives very well." Whatmakes it even more appealing is a surprise that comes under the hood: the olddiesel has been removed, and replaced by a Lexus V8 with an automatictransmission.
