Bats Valkyrie

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.

    I forgot to mention that after decades of poorly fitting, silly looking Avenger Valkyrie headlight covers Mark Clapp has announced his are ready to go, ( They will be at Carlisle ) The big problem was the crisp style line that ran down the fenders onto the headlight covers,
    The covers that have been offered in the past had no style line at all, more or less just plastic forced over the headlight hole, really hurt the look of the cars.
    What mark did was to clam shell mold the new covers, he used good original covers sent to him by myself and other owners for his guides.
    The product Mark offers ( I have my pair just not fitted yet ) have a nice style line, while these first few, what I will call “beta” pairs are not as sharp as the originals they are the best after markets I have ever seen and Mark who I want to add makes the headlight covers for the top end replicas sold today will keep working with the Avenger, Valkyrie covers to get the very best line possible. For the price he asks these just can not be beat.
    So if your car needs Headlight covers be sure to hit Mark up,

    My valkyrie is reluctantly for sale,
    I need funds for the 69 Corvette custom project and the valk being it’s own full project I just do not know if I have another project left in me,
    I posted this original tread in 2012 and I haven’t really touched the valk, it looks like it does in the pictures,
