A creative gearhead from New Zealand built the very unique ’79 Toyota MX41 Mark II sedan and made one extraordinary engine transplant.

At first, this owner planned on swapping the factory M-EU inline-six 2.0L with a 3UZ or the 1UZ V8. However, his original plan was altered when the 1GZ-FE V12 5.0L showed up!

This V12 engine was fitted very nicely and only needed the headers modified. And it was fitted using 1UZ to M engine mounts. They were only bent slightly in order to make the angle.

Also, this owner of the car decided to build custom-made individual bodies that can be found on the 20v inline four 4A-GE.

Elsewhere on the drivetrain there is the flywheel and a 1UZ clutch that are linked to the R154 five speed manual transmission. After this old school Toyota had its engine transplant and the old standard engine discarded, it produced 367.5 horsepower!

Now this car is ready to be the ultimate sleeper on the drag track. No one would guess what sits under a hood of this old Japanese car. Check out this video and enjoy the beasty sound of this extraordinary build which definitely made our day.
