Bobby Massaron's Venture
Kustomrama Marketplace - Aquila Kit Cars for Sale
The Venture is a fiberglass car built by Bobby Massaron of Northville, Michigan.
The Venture featured a body called "Aquila."It was manufactured in Cupertino, California, and Bobby bought the body from the manufacturer. "I mounted it on a VW platform," he told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama in 2022. He then installed a 1989 Pontiac Firebird rear engine and a VW transaxle with an Adapter from Kennedy Engineering. "Engine is a V6,2.8 liter.60-degree V6. I did not like the original two single taillights so I made that real polished aluminum bars grille. It has a full-width taillight across the back." Once the bodywork was completed, the cart was painted Candy Apple Red. "I did the Interior in the car. The bucket seat base fiberglass mold, that I still have, was from the original mold that made the bucket seats in the A Brothers Deora. I did the interior complete."
Ridler Award Runner-Up
The Venture was a second "runnerup" at the 1990 Detroit Autorama for the Ridler Award. "They did not have "The Great Eight" back then."
As Bobby is getting up there in age, he has decided to sell the Venture. He is asking $80.000 for the one-off car. Please contact Bobby at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 313-608-6100 for more info and details.
