Rare Fiberfab Caribee/Banshee Body For Sale17 Comment

Banshee, Caribee, eBay, FiberFab, For Sale | Mon, 14 Jul 2008 Posted by :

The Fiberfab Banshee (later renamed the Fiberfab Caribee after Fiberfab sold the Banshee name to GM in 1966) is one of their earliest and most beautiful cars, with long sleek lines highly reminiscent of the Daytona Cobra, with a more steeply raked windshield (out of a Corvette of the time) making it only 46″ high (and that’s with 6″ of ground clearance). Entry to the “spacious” cabin was through a pair of slightly small gullwing doors, and the car was first designed to fit an MGA, Austin Healy 6, or a Triumph TR-3 (and the TR-4 with slight modifications).

Michael bought a Caribee/Banshee that some numskull had mounted to a jacked up truck chassis (the fourth picture is as he bought it). He promptly removed it, with the intent of mounting it on a Corvette, but hasn’t got around to it and decided to put this rare body — only a dozen were made — up on eBay (#160261291277). Where he’s asking only $1,000 or best offer. Personally I think it’s worth this in a heartbeat, even for just the body — it’s a stunning vehicle when complete as you can see from the factory demo model photos and the pictures from Michael Luongo’s example. He’s located in Warren, MI — hurry and make your offer, because there are only six days left on the auction as I post this.

    I have a Caribee/Banshee kit mounted on a 1962 Austin Healey 3000. I need to know what year corvette windshield is used since mine is cracked. I also would like to know what year glass is used for the rear window so I can replace the plexiglass window.

    Ha. I’m the current owner of the yellow banshee. I did not build it, but have worked on it. The car in Detroit was something on Craigslist a couple years back. Not my car though. :)

    Hi Shannon – Is this caribee body off your radar? Do you know of any others, or a Jamaican body available? Thanks, Chuck
