What is it?! Crazy Fiberfab-based V8 Custom

If cars could talk, this one would probably cry in shame. Listed as a “1968 Gt Avenger,” the description of this Bradford, Pennsylvania kit car presumably describes a Fiberfab Avenger GT-12. However the B-pillar suggests a stronger resemblance to the similar Fiberfab Aztec II. Both of those ’60s kit cars paid homage to the awesome Ford GT-40, and neither look much like the car you see here, except in the greenhouse. Perhaps someone took a badly mangled Aztec, grafted on the Chevy Monza front end, and reworked the rear to include a hideous ’70s bumper. Thanks to Chris W. for spotting this interesting supercar-wannabe. It can be yours for a mere $4000.

Check out the gorgeous 1969 Fiberfab Aztec II at dailyturismo.com for an idea of how far from attractive this DIY project has strayed. The apparent sealing over of the rear-opening engine cover should cause any buyer pause. Neither the Aztec nor the Avenger came with this car’s one-foot-square rectangular rocker exaggeration serving as a molded side-pipe cover.

Certainly Ian Roussel could make an awesome ride out of this Franken-Monza, but it would take some work! Fans of the Monza front clip would be better served to buy one whole. Bow-Tie fans may point out that, in fact, the Monza is named after an Italian race track and echoes the design of a Ferrari. Personally I prefer the Fiberfab designs.

While some Fiberfab kits rode atop an economical and easily-sourced VW Beetle platform, this one is built on a 1968 Corvette chassis with the same car’s 327 cid, 350 HP engine and a (sigh) automatic transmission. All joking aside, this truly one-of-a-kind ride could be quite entertaining if properly sorted. Modified with proper bodywork and running gear, it would be a hoot circumnavigating the Allegheny Reservoir. Picture this:  it appears in your driveway wearing a giant white bow. How do you react?

      Some cars are “1 of 1” for a reason.

    Well it looks like a Monza front end but the rear looks like a Opel with a oversized fitted bumper on it probably for being pushed by others .lol.

    I’ve always liked the Monza front end but I think this may have tainted it, possibly forever. Unique is a polite way of describing it. Screw it, quick, somebody kill it with a stick! Poor thing never wanted to be this ugly so it would be a mercy killing.

    I would be utterly grateful for someone bringing this to me! I love this car! I would meticulously restore or modify it to suit myself and drive and enjoy the looks I would get! I would have it totally done within a year! Please bring it to my door!

    When i was 16 back in the 70s i would drive my Capri to the Fiberfab dealer, sit in the demos and play with the overhead switchgear until they kicked me out. Those cars were so cool back then!

    Would’ve liked to have known where this is. Refab the Monza front end and get rid of that back bumper and those godawful tail lights. New wheels and update the drivetrain and it could turn out as a respectable kit car.
