Challenge hell, that is a short trip to the funny farm. I bet he has had it since the '70s. Looks more like a kit called a Valkyrie made in the late '60s and early '70s by some outfit in Santa Barbara. It was based mostly off Corvair running gear. They also made a shoebox looking kit for a VW Beetle that had only one sliding door on the passenger side and redwood plank bumpers. Hey, it was the '60s.
Yep, It is a Fiberfab Valkyrie. I had one with a midengine Ford 302 adapted to the Corvair transaxle, and '85 Corvette disc brakes. The windshield is Corvair, while the back window is '65 Mustang fastback. (Everyone needs a project)
Valkyries have a ladder style rectangular tube frame, and the Avengers use a VW pan.
They have a club that is at Kit Car Carlisle each year.
