He believes it to be a 1971 but not registered until 1978 common with kit cars.
It runs a stock 350 on the Crown style Corvair transaxle. the front end is also Corvair but the frame is a custom 2×4 from Fiberfab.
This would be the last or “late” Valkyrie, it is a bit longer than the early ones and has the molded in front spoiler, you get at the engine by removing the rear louvers and in this example it also has a hatch between the tail lights. the doors are also longer on the late models and you can run one piece side windows.
What’s really rare is this one runs and drives great so it’s ready to play with.
Here is something that looks like it started out life as an Avenger or Valkyrie,
Somewhere along the line it had odd ( ugly ) box flares added and a big part of the front end smashed,
It comes with a large amount of rust and other detritus.
If it’s a Valkyrie it’s the late model that you had to get at the engine through the rear window opening.
Asking price of 9500.00 makes this mess my pick of the week, perhaps pick of the month.
So how much would YOU pay for this jewel?
Thought it was about time to post one of my pieces of yard art, Ahem, “Projects”.
This is my 71 Fiberfab Valkyrie, admittedly she is something of a basket case, looks worse than it really is. I got a killer deal on the car because the seller who was less than savvy mistook a stuck shifter cable for a bad transaxle.Mine is the early Valkyrie being a two piece body with full tilt rear, the wheel base is around 98 inches and the later one piece Valkyries had a wheel base of 100-101.
The keen eye will see my car has had something of a hard life, the hood was cut open and the scoops modded, the front grill area was also modded.I plan other body mods including larger scoops, flared wheel wells and “fixing” the tail lights.
For now my car is powered by a Vortec 4.3 6 Cylinder, while a great engine part of my old school build will include dropping a V8 in there. While I know all it’s short comings if anyone knows of a Kelmark style Corvair mid engine transaxle for sale please hit me up.
George sent us this great photos of his Valkyrie. He purchased the body new but it still needed a ton of body work to get it right. He also made several changes to the body to give it the great look it has.
Check out that custom dash. I think this should be on all of them.
Well I do not know where to start on this one. I really had to rub my eyes for a minute to make sure I was not having a moment of of double vision. This one comes to you from the fine state of California and can be yours for the low price of $19,000 . Did you notice how I made the price bold and red t0 make sure everyone could see it?
Now I have a soft spot for the Valkyrie just like I am sure many of you do . They are a cool car and unfortunately have am yet to own one. But when I do decide to bite the bullet I can tell you I will NOT be paying $19,000 for it. I am going to go out on a limb and say the reason it is a head turner is because it needs body work and paint. Just sayin.
This is a 1968 GT40 replica THIS IS NOT A VW CAR!!! It has a new engine. Glass window in back shows off mid-engine. This car is fast AND you can’t find any more old GT-40′s IN THE USA. This car is a head-turner at EVERY car show. The car goes 0 to 60 in 3.9sec. Tons of power in a fiberglass body. Only $19000
This one comes to you from the Lexington Ky area and they are asking $9900 . If you are in the market I am sure you can get it for a better deal.
Avenger, FiberFab, For Sale, Valkyrie | Thu, 22 Jan 2009 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
George thought he was selling an Avenger GT15X but because it’s mounted on a square tube chassis, not a VW pan, I think he’s actually selling a Fiberfab Valkyrie. The engine (a 110 HP Corvair 6-cylinder with a “Spider” Carter 4-barrel AFB and headers) runs and much of the hard work is done — he just finished installing the steering — but there is definitely still much left to complete it and any buyer should be mechanically competent. The car is located in San Jose. If you’re interested, contact George at firstname.lastname@example.org.
***Correction. George has informed me that this car is an Avenger GT15X***
FiberFab, For Sale, Kelmark, Valkyrie | Fri, 03 Oct 2008 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
I asked Tucker if I could post about his two kits he’s got up for sale, a Kelmark GT and a Fiberfab Valkyrie (both located in Tahlequah — near Tulsa), and he said, “fine with me… the more potential victims, er, buyers, the better!!!”
It’s so true!
Kit cars seem to be these albatrosses that hang around people’s necks until they eventually land in the garage of the person that turns them into the amazing beauties they have the potential to be. Both the Kelmark and the Valkyrie are some of my favorite kit cars, and Tucker is asking only $1,500 for the first, and $2,000 for the latter. The Kelmark is on a VW pan, and the Valkyrie is on a square tube frame with a Corvair transaxle and a radiator up front. As Tucker says about the Valkyrie — and I think this really applies to both cars — “it won’t be a weekend project by any means, but for the right guy it will make a super car.”
Willing victims should write him at Wemail@example.com.
He’s decided to keep them!
FiberFab, Valkyrie | Tue, 02 Sep 2008 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
Andrew purchased this Fiberfab Valkyrie with I the intention of making an electric car. He doesn’t know much about its history other than that it’s been sitting for a very long time, and is looking to get in touch with other Valkyrie owners/builders — you can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The frame is the original Fiberfab Valkyrie frame, and the car originally had a Chevy small block, which has since been removed, along with the front and rear suspension to prepare the frame for a complete work-over. This has been started, and all the rust has been cut out and new metal has been welded in place. Andrew says that for all points and purpose this is a complete ground-up build, as he’s starting with just a frame and a body. It does have good front and rear glass at least!
Stay tuned for future updates on this build project and check out his blog at evmania.com for more indepth coverage of his project.
