GT40 legacy: 1966 Fiberfab Avenger GT-12


The love we have for kit cars could maybe be related to our childhood when, browsing the car magazines (made of paper), we always saw these beautiful cars with an affordable price. Of course we couldn’t realize exactly why those cars seemed bargains.


That was because, just like this car, produced from 1966 to the early seventies, usually these cars were made of fiberglass and built on the most reliable platform ever: the VW Beetle chassis, a true plain paper on which everyone could design the car of his dreams. This model, clearly, was massively inspired by the Ford GT40.


Fiberfab built two models: the GT-12 like this one, made on the Beetle chassis, and the GT-15 built with a tubular frame which could accomodate a Chevrolet Corvair engine. This car is said to be a barn find and indeed looks very nice, nothing is apparently broken or misplaced and the interiors look pure (early) seventies. That would be interesting to replace the engine with a 120-150 hp unit which, unfortunately for the drivers of fourty years ago, were not available on the market. Last but not least: go figure other Avenger out there: you can find several but none of them is well-finished like this one. Find it for sale at $15,000 here in Miami, FL.
