I never knew that the early Aston Martin v8 Zagato Volante had headlight covers?

The Amante GT

First introduced in 1969 as the Gazelle (no relation to the CMC neoclassic of the same name), the original manufacturer was Hebina Plastics in Santa Clara, California. The styling was an original design and the body would fit any VW pan except for bus or truck.

The Gazelle stood only 44” tall and engine choices included VW, Porsche or Corvair. The body had a steel roll bar, side bars and other body reinforcements molded in during the assembly process.

To add rigidity and a finished appearance, most panels had bonded inner panels. Dashboards were built-in and used optional clip-on upholstery to match the black vinyl interior liner. It used Rambler Marlin front and rear glass and roll-up side windows. The headlights had solid covers that hinged down to uncover the lights. Price was a reasonable $795 in 1969.

By 1970, Hebina had changed their name to Voegele Industries (for owner Bill Voegele) and the car had been renamed the Amante GT. Improvements were made, including an emphasis on the VW Variant Squareback / Fastback chassis option.

These VW’s were using fuel-injected engines and front-wheel disc brakes long before the Bug. One of the smarest options was a roll cage that added roof bars and tubes that extended forward to the nose and back to the tail inside the wheel wheels.

Coggiola obviously had a thing for popups - the 1971 Volvo was called the “Viking” :D

Their 1972 Alpine A310 concept is already listed
