Antonio's V12 DOHC w/ ITBs powered 280Z

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I present you my Zonda/Mercedes Benz V12 powered 280Z build. I've been working on this project for almost 3 years. I'll share more as I make new progress. :)

 

 

When I picked it up...

All frame rust done! Bad dog frame rails, coilovers, polyurethane bushings, seam sealed, and bed liner coated

Still needs new body panels. I've started, but I need to take pics.

Wow, you're ambitious. That's a lot of rust! Is 'earth' located in Canada? I've never seen rust like that in the strut towers.

Hahaha I know right?! Previous owner had it parked really close to a pond :( And yes, I'm very ambitious :)

Hahaha I meant to say M137 but typed M156 lol! I did manage to power wash the block so I can start honing the cylinders. Unfortunately Sunnen AN-30 silicone compound is out of stock through my supplier :( I'm going to make some calls tomorrow :)

Great build! I see you have poly bushing in your Tension Rods... Might want to take a look at the thread below, as there have been some rod failures due to them...

Thanks! I guess I have to make some tension rods then

Little update, I eventually got rid of all my Z car stuff. I told myself that I wasn’t going to build any more cars. Well... idk about you guys, but that’s no fun so I bought another Z and another V12. Follow me on Instagram: datv12z 🤘
