Define “fit”. It’s not going to fit as a 280Z is unibody. Can mounts be created to secure it to the truck frame? Yes but it will be an expensive project. Everything will need to be custom made.

Gary is right, everything about this project will be custom fit, and another thing your going to put a metric body on and standard frame so some things just aren't going to match perfectly. I once knew a guy that was into this stuff, he had a 4 wheel drive Camaro, and a 4 wheel drive 57 Chevy, a V8 powered VW Bug. He said over time he has spend thousands of dollars doing one thing finding out it didn't work and redesigning something else, over and over again.
