Ebay Description:


For auction is one the original Amante GT made by Voegele Industries out of Santa Clara, California. This is one of the earliest produced and is in very good condition for restoration. The body is strong and solid fiberglass, The rolling chassis is a 1964 beetle and in very good condition. Front brakes are early porsche [aluminum] with a 1965 140hp corvair engine. I bought the partially finished kit around 1976 and only drove it for two years in mid 80's then got interested in other things. I moved and it has been exposed to the elements for the last eight years and ruined the paint job. Inside of the kit has never been finished. The paperwork has long been misplaced or lost. No cracks in front or back glass. They only made around 150 of these.

The frame measures roughly 55" wide and 68 1/2" in length. These are pictures from last week. I am still cleaning and doing minor work on the body, doors, and trunk lid. The car was parked because I lost interest not for any repairs or damage to the drive train. I have rebuilt the carbs and started the engine last week and it starts quickly and runs fine. Please ask questions and I will do my best to answer. good luck bidding. - Tom

Lots of questions and interest from the watchers waiting for the bidding to start tomorrow morning. Here are a few points. The body with gauges and harness by itself is a great deal at $750, as it is one of only 150 manufactured by Voegele industries which started the Avenger line that later became Fiberfab. The conversion kit to hook up the vw trans to corvair power -$200, the transmission ring work on the vw- $150, four rebuilt carbs for the 140 hp corvair engine and new lines -$125, the porsche aluminum front brakes $75, the complete frame in great shape for a 64 vw with excellent koni shocks and like new brake pads-$1,000.

If you do not believe these are lowside prices. Get a few quotes if you can even find the items. Good luck!
