IN being the operative word. The engine is so long that the back of the head would be at the cigarette lighter.

I'm unfamiliar with Benz motors; where does the starter mount? Does it have a separate bellhousing? Will you have to adapt the Chevy-pattern trans to the Benz bellhousing, or the Chevy bellhousing to the Benz block? How about the input shaft slines vs. clutches that will fit the Benz flywheel?
Every time I've bought a trans adapter plate I always looked at it and said to myself "damn I could make this without much trouble"... but, those were always Buick-Olds-Pontiac to Chevy adapters, and the alignment pins between those two are already correct. Since you need it to be PERFECTLY aligned I'd try real hard to find a commercially-available adapter, or use a different engine that does have a trans/transfer case that you can graft in.
But maybe (Probably!) you're a better machinist than I am!

Should I get it painted green, or would that just cause more pollution?

Shouldn't be that difficult, actually....
Hi, Yg! Happy Solstice!

I hear there are better deals out there.
And hybrids serve no purpose on the freeway at all.

The lower weight, cross sectional area, lowest top speed and lowest drag coefficient of a production car in the U.S. market make the Prius a very efficient highway traveler...
