Aztec Bodies

Aztec bodies, manufactured by CorBen, a Division of Harris Engineering, are rare birds; they only lasted about one year, and then they were gone. CorBen ads featuring these bodies appeared off and on in Car Model and Model Car & Track from December 1966 to August 1967. Auto World offered them in their 1967 catalog:

The Aztec were repackaged Pactra bodies. It is not certain that all the ones shown in the advert were all issued. So far we only have seen TWO with the original card... in over 20 years, the Chaparral 2D in a painted version and a clear Lotus 40. Hence my doubts that all were actually marketed.

 Could you possibly shed some light on the Pactra Body Patch product on the bottom right of the catalog page ? And can ib be found/duplicated ?
