Mail Jeep with a 7.0 L Jaguar V12

Mail Jeep with a 7.0 L Jaguar V12

Devon West set out to build a very unique project. He started with a 1976 Mail Jeep powered by an AMC 232 ci inline-six. Devon replaced that with a 7.0 L Jaguar V12 making around 400 horsepower. The engine was bored to 94 mm and stroked to 84 mm by the previous owner. It also features a custom intake manifold with two 650 cfm carburetors and zoomie headers. The drivetrain uses a TH400 three-speed automatic transmission and factory Dana 40 rear end with a limited-slip differential.

  1. You sure the V12 is 7.0 litres? As motors with that displacement were only used in TWR and Lister build cars, most famously the XJR-9 Le Mans car and the Lister Storm… not something you find at your local wreckers.

    1. “The engine was bored to 94 mm and stroked to 84 mm by the previous owner. ”
      Did you even read the story…?

  2. I’m kinda wondering about that intake manifold. Looks like it is made from iron pipe. Kudos to the owner for making do with what he had around the shop.

    1. I give credit where credit is due, but not here. That manifold is going to allow SO MUCH fuel fall out of suspension and slosh it’s way into the cylinders, unless it being driven at high revs all the time. I can’t imagine how much is going to pool at the bottom of the “plenum”. This car makes a serious case for DIY or kit port injection.
