Glenn Esau's 240Z with Jaguar V12 engine swap in Ontario, Canada

Intro Notes on V12 240Z

In late 90’s one of my ZPARTS.COM site fans sent me a photo of a never before seen 240Z at a Canadian car show with a Jaguar V12 engine swap, a first to my awareness.

For years after I searched for the name of the owner and his whereabouts, but to no avail.  Then, in November of 2012, I stumbled upon references to the car and owner and an “archived” website built years ago for the purpose of selling the car.  There was the most unlikely looking email address on that page that started with dotdotdot@xx.xx, which I sent a message to expecting to get a “bounced” server notice.  To my surprise, 2 days later I received a lengthy reply from Glenn,  the original builder of the car .

Long story short, the Glenn told me that the 71 240Z with V12 engine, had sold off many years prior, along with all records and photos of his Z project, that he had first started in 1986 which had progressed through 3-4 different engine swaps and several paint jobs before being sold.

However, as luck would have it, I have now obtained a few quite descent historic photos of his Z project as it evolved up to 2004.  Free time allowing and after I have a chance to interview the original builder for more details and get all the material organized I will published the best of it here.  Included will be a c”build record” and a few historic photos.

In addition, Glenn has indicated that he has some “Z stories” to share.  Please come back in the near future to see it all.
