Valkyrie Kit car FS in Phoenix

I know nothing about this but it came up in my CL feed a few days ago since it mentions a Corvair windshield. I always liked these kit cars but rarely see them completed past this condition. Looks like it was getting close. Say it runs but doesn't drive.

That’s true, even the “finished” kit cars that actually make it to the road have half assed interiors.... that drives me nuts!

I wonder what kind of transaxle it has.

I can't speak for this car but the typical
gearbox was Corvair using the 65 4spd and
a machined input shaft similar to the CROWN
but for the 64-5 4spd.

Yeah, that could be a fun ride!
Half-assed interiors - well, if it's a choice between 'perfect' and 'good enough to have fun with', you know which way I go!

Yes, it started out in life as a 61 2door.
It has a custom fiberglass skin, and a transverse 3.8 Buick.

It actually looks like a good deal. Body work and electrical are the things most kit-cars need to finish. This is no exception. All the rebuilt hardware would cost more than that. I wish there were some interior shots.
