Ebay Description:

UP FOR AUCTION IS A 1973 FIBERFAB AVENGER GT-12 SERIAL#022022. HAVE CLEAR ARIZONA TITLE. THIS RED BEAUTY GETS LOTS OF LOOKS AND IS FUN TO DRIVE! MY BROTHER OWNED THIS CAR FOR OVER 30 YEARS AND DID MOST OF THE FABRICATION. I'VE BEEN WORKING ON IT FOR THE LAST 8 YEARS TO FINISH THE PROJECT. I HAVE ONE MORE PROJECT CAR TO FINISH SO SELLING "RED" WILL ALLOW ME TO PROCEED FORWARD WITH THAT PROJECT.

I USE TO OWN THE IOWA FIBERFAB, AND ARIZONA FIBERFAB DEALERSHIPS. SO I KNOW DAN RICHER THE OWNER OF FIBERFAB AND HAVE SEEN SOME UNIQUE DESIGN IDEAS HE HAS IN THE WORKS FOR THE NEAR FUTURE. POTENTIALLY, ANYONE HAVING AN AVENGER PRODUCT WOULD BE ABLE TO GET SOME INTERCHANGABLE PARTS THAT WOULD WORK ON VARIOUS MODELS MADE THROUGHOUT THE YEARS. I WILL PUT A PICTURE IN AD OF PROTOTYPE (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH CAR IN AUCTION FOR SALE THAT IS RED IN COLOR WITH WHITE STRIPE) THE OPEN TOP ROADSTER LOOK- ADDS A FRESH NEW UPDATED LOOK TO A FAMILIAR DESIGN.

"RED" IS ON A KARMANN GHIA CHASSIS SHORTENED 18", THE FLOOR HAS BEEN LOWERED A COUPLE INCHES FOR ADDITIONAL HEADROOM CLEARANCE, THE INTERIOR IS FINISHED IN RED WHITE AND BLACK. CAR COMES WITH AN A/C KIT, COMPRESSOR INSTALLED ALL OTHER COMPONENTS COME WITH CAR.

FOR 42 YEARS OLD, IT'S A NICE EXAMPLE OF THE EARLY FIFERFABS." OLD RED" NEEDS WIPERS THEY CAME UP MISSING AFTER IT LEFT THE BODY SHOP A FEW YEARS BACK. NEVER DROVE IT IN THE RAIN IN THE DESERT! IF YOU ARE OVER 6'2'' IT MIGHT A WORKOUT GETTING IN AND OUT OF THE CAR. THAT BEING SAID, THE FOLLLOWING SHOULD BE NOTED: THIS CAR IS FOR SALE AS-IS WHERE-IS. THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES IMPLIED OR EXPRESSED, IT IS WHAT IT IS. THE BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SHIPPING OF THE VEHICLE, I MAY HAVE CONTACTS TO ASSIST YOU WITH.THE VEHICLE IS FOR SALE LOCALLY AS WELL-SO I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END THE AUCTION AT ANY TIME.

ONCE AGAIN THERE ARE 2 PICTURES IN THE GALLERY THAT FEATURE FIBERFABS WHITE OPEN ROADSTER, THERE IS A ALSO A PIC OF A "FUCH" WHEEL ON THE FRONT OF THE RED CAR-OTHERWISE IT HAS WESTERN TURBINE WHEELS FROM THAT PERIOD.
