Here is a pretty sweet Aztec 7,
I do not know why but for me some cars have more heart and soul than anothers of the small color , make, model,
This is one for me, the interior is stunning, looks to me like a real import exotic,
The engine will never be mistaken as “just another VW” with speed to keep up with the looks this might just be the one for you if in the market for an Aztec 7,
And the auction is past reserve meaning the high bid gets the car…lets see how it turns out.

This is one of those “almost” kit projects that pop up for sale from time to time.
It started as an Aztec 7 but left all that putt putt VW stuff behind, this mean baby has a full tilt custom built chassis and transverse v8 power. ( I have to wonder will that rear mounted radiator keep it cool when things get hot. )
Seems no expense was spared in this build the passion and desire shows and I have to admit I feel badly for the owner having to sell it before seeing the dream come true. When finished I can see this as the ultimate Aztec 7. I would love that chassis under my Valkyrie.
The owner openly admits the body might not be to everyone liking and adds that being the chassis was built for a VW based kit car that the chassis could work under many other VW based kits to get a go that keeps up for the show, I would do some measurements to see if it would fit your body, just because it was made for “vw based” does mean it will fit all VW based kits with out some cutting and fitting. lets face it with a little work and tweaking regardless of body choice this could end up being a true super car.
While the investment was many times the asking price if you are bucks up and 15 K sounds like a deal, hit them up and give this car a home and the finish it deserves.
This is a stunning car for many reasons, The Aztec 7 was Fiberfabs answer to the Bertone Carabo a really stunning show car that the Aztec will remind one of,
I have heard that many Aztec 7′s were plagued with various malfunctioning issues like parts removed “green” from the molds causing warping.
And if you have never seen an Aztec 7 in person you need to, pictures do not do it, you will love it or hate it, but it has no under cut from bottom of the window down, it’s very flat and straight.
Fiberfab used a rather expensive hard to get windscreen from a lambo so many Aztec 7′s were discarded for that reason alone.
This example looks like they made all hurdles of an early kit in top shelf bounds, The body looks to be finished with a fit seldom seen on “kit cars” and the interior is breathtaking, it feels like I am looking inside a high dollar exotic not “just” an Early kit car.
While I am a VW fan I have never been a fan of overbuilding the VW engines but I have a feeling this one will do just fine.
At the time of my posting this is has no bids, I guess the economy is really hurting things because it seems to me that if a buyers dream was the Aztec 7 the entry price on this one isn’t that far off,
No doubt this is the nicest Aztec 7 I have ever seen and might be the best one there is.
Just came across this Aztec 7 while doing a late night eBay browse. It appears as though the owner does not know a whole not about it. The BIN price is $3000. In my opinion while a good starting point, I think the price is a bit steep. The auction number is (#200730468989)
Aztec 7, FiberFab, One-offs | Sat, 11 Jul 2009 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
Reading one of my favourite car blogs today, I saw this entry which managed to distract me from UFC100 — a post on Hemmings that linked to these pictures of the five thousand pound steam turbine “Barber-Nichols Steamin’ Demon” (currently for sale for a half million), an Aztec 7 kit car converted to break the steam-power land speed record, which it did at 145.607 mph on August 19, 1985 at Bonneville. Definitely NOT what Fiberfab expected when they originally designed this traditionally VW-based kit car! The previous record, set in a Stanley Steamer, had long held the record at 127.656 mph, set in 1906. A British team is currently working on a car to shatter this record, but this has got to be one of the longest-standing records held by a kit car.

Here’s a kit with a ton of potential — this Aztec 7 project car, largely unassembled, is for sale in the Tacoma, Washington area. Mark (firstname.lastname@example.org) is selling it for only $1,000 — a great deal in my opinion — and at that it comes with a licensed VW pan with drop floors installed, as well as the complete body with an intact and undamaged windshield (worth far more than the asking price). The fiberglass needs minor repairs in several areas, but I think this is a very viable project for someone to take over… To my eyes the Aztec 7 is an under appreciated car, and finished they’re very striking.
Here are lots of pictures of the various parts; write Mark if you have any questions or would like to buy it.

This is probably the strangest application of an Aztec 7 body you’ll see — an Aztec 7 Swamp Buggy — mounted on a 1984 Chevy 4×4 short pickup frame. The Chevy 350 V8 runs strong, and the transfer case is good, but the tranny is shot. Tires are 32X11.5X15 Super Swampers, and the body of course is an Aztec 7 kit car body. Andy at email@example.com is selling this for his dad, who figures the parts value of everything is around $1,200, but says, “I think he’s too high. MAKE ME AN OFFER that you think it’s worth and I’ll see if I can talk him into it. I need to get it out of his yard.” He’s also open to parting it out. The car is located in Cumming, near Atlanta, GA.

It’s been a little while since I’ve seen a nice Aztec 7 for sale, so I was happy to see this one — it’s beautiful and is yours at an asking price of only $6,995. It’s a second generation model, done in red/black paint with a tan interior, and is very classic across the board. It’s got a nice cloth interior with a full gauge cluster, and alloy wheels — I’m really blown away by how nice the interior (usually a weak point on this era of kit) looks. If you’re interested, it’s located in Kingman, AZ, and you can contact Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’ve been looking for an Aztec 7, this might be the one to jump at.
Edit: I just realized I’ve seen this car before!
