Aztec, FiberFab, For Sale | Sun, 13 Jul 2008 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
The folks at Freddie’s Transmission in Dallas, who have quite a few neat old cars for sale (including a VW Trike) have a first-generation FiberFab Aztec (being sold for a customer) — which I prefer to the later slew of GT40-knockoffs that later dominated the exotic kitcar market — with the flip-top for sale for one of their customers. It’s definitely a project with a lot of work, and hasn’t run in years. “Make an offer”, they say. In my opinion it’s worth in the realm of $500… hope you have plenty of time on your hands. Love the paint job it used to have. Very Austin Powers.
…but does it come with the ketchup bottle?

Speaking of the FiberFab Aztec GT front end, this 1965 flip-top model — painted in a mean looking matte black primer — just got posted to eBay today (#130235523264) so you can see what I mean by the similarity.
It’s built on a Corvair driveline mated to a VW chassis, but like the previously posted vehicle, it’s in rough shape (needs new floor, no brakes, engine work needed, and more) and has neither paperwork nor keys. Mike in Attleboro, MA is asking $750, which is what the tires and wheels cost him. This is the first generation car, which debuted in 1964 as FiberFab’s first original design, and the start of one of the biggest kit car empires in US automotive history.

Tim Zeigler sends in these old pictures of his gorgeous classic 1963 Aztec GT.

This actually got sold as a Devin (which it looks nothing like), but of course it’s a 60′s-era first generation Aztec by Fiberfab. This one is built with a three piece body (including a hydraulically actuated canopy) on a VW chassis powered by a Corvair 6-cylinder.
By the way, take the time to zoom in so you can check out the very cool headers exiting just in front of the rear wheels.

Long ago Jim D. bought this first generation Aztec from a friend. This is a picture of it back in 1976. He’s asked me to try and help him find other pictures of Aztecs of this era, so if you have some email them to me, and I’ll try and dig some more of from my archives (I recently posted Eric’s Aztec GT).
I remember when I was in highschool and desperately wanted my first kit car, my father and I nearly bought one of these, although the owner had build a V8 chassis for it rather than a VW based one.
