Valkyrie GT-X Project Car For Sale

Carl in Tijeras, New Mexico, is the third owner of this Fiberfab Valkyrie GT-X but has lost interest in the project and has put it up for sale on eBay (#110274594321). He has all the receipts from the purchase in 1967 onward. He completed the car mechanically and has driven it about twenty miles in testing, but it’s unfinished — it needs paint, interior, inner fenders, side glass, door handles (the doors are hung though), mirrors, and so on.

The gauges and electrical and driveline all work. The engine is a 327 V8 out of a ’67 Camaro, mated to a 4-speed Corvair transmission. Both are rebuilt with low miles. Radiator and steering are out of a Corvette, and the wheels are American Racing. Carl says it handles great and has driven it over 60mph in his testing (4500RPM in 2nd), and says it handles better than his ’88 Lotus did.

Especially because the Valkyrie is back in production by, this is very much a project that someone could take over. The car is currently at $5,600 and was listed without a reserve. It comes with all the manuals.

    um, having the fuel cell in such close proximity to the exhaust? Any vapor release and you get an ‘external combustion engine”…

    isnt the fuel cell in these usually behind the driver’s compartment, with the engine back a bit more towards the rear axle?

  2. I was thinking exactly the same thing, Rick… If this was my car I would definitely relocated that fuel tank!

    dont most all Manta mirage run the tank in about the same location?

  4. No — the Mirage has a pair of fuel cells, one under each door.

    You mean after people upgrade the Mirage or the way Manta sold them in the 70’s?
    I know I have seen a few with the tanks over the tranny, and all Valks were done that way,
    If manta built them with side fuel cells that rocks,
    I know the Mirage had extra bracing on the sides of the frame but no where near enough to keep the fuel cell out of your lap if T boned hard

    I’m looking for a set of SBC 180 degree headers like the ones in the picture above. Any idea who made them and where I should start looking to find a set or ones like it? Thanks
