No, the MB engine was only sold in Europe - although there are a couple in the 
Antipodes and at least one in Japan.  To be even more specific -I've never 
found a left-hand drive one. 

Chassis 85-J-900386 is a _VERY_ early MB.  I think the first one went into 
85-J-900337.  There was never any provision for lambda control on the MB 
engine, although one or two of us are looking into it as a potential cure for 
one or two of the MB's little foibles.  

It's a 1988 car, BTW, and was probably manufactured in March/April of that 
year.  I'd be _VERY_ interested in a photograph of the rear of the engine bay, 
showing the vacuum line plumbing around the wastegate and the back of the inlet
