Oh Fiberfab. Where would we be without your hauntingly beautiful customs that look mean but are no faster than a Bangladesh Tuk Tuk? I'll tell you where, in a world with less joy, less feigned extravagance, a world where I couldn't buy a GT40 replica with a 20 dollar bill and get change. Find this 1972 Fiberfab Avenger GT-15 here on eBay currently bidding for $4,200 with a few hours to go, located in Fremont, CA.
The Avenger was a model of kit car sold by Fiberfab, a small kit manufacturer founded in 1964 by Warren "Bud" Goodwin that produced all kinds of custom 60s/70s shaped customs with names that sounded like they came straight from a Marvel comic book. The Avenger was not technically a replica, but the design was certainly derivative of the MkII/III GT-40. This Avenger is a GT-15 version, so instead of using a VW Beetle floorpan like the GT-12 model, it uses a tubular space frame and Corvair running gear.
Power in the Avenger comes from a 2.7 liter flat-6 borrowed from a Corvair and fed via industrial fuse panel shaped air boxes. With something shy of 140 horsepower on tap, the Avenger won't move like a supercar, but it should make some interesting noises and attract attention like a million dollar classic.
