Classic Motorsports Car Catcher: Cool Kit Car

Love old fiberglass kit cars? We do too. That’s why this Fiberfab Jamaican caught our eye on the Orlando Craigslist page. In the 1960s and ‘70s the Jamaican could be built on the platform of a Triumph TR3, TR4, MGA, Austin-Healey or Volkswagen Beetle, with the Austin-Healey based cars tending to be more desirable.

The Jamaican in question isn’t just based on an Austin-Healey, but is also powered by a small block chevy. Sounds like a good mix to us. This one will need some interior and wiring work, but it looks like a clean example from the outside.

What’s the price? The ad asks for $4900. That seems very fair, assuming the car isn’t too far gone.

I wonder if the body could be re-worked to fit a more modern chassis like a C4 'vette. A C3 might be easier though.
