I also think the knob on the Hurst shifter is wrong and should be a round black knob . I am the current high bidder and will bid more but my real problem is where is the top . This would be my first GTO since 1965 when I bought one new . If it were a Buick or Mopar I would be better at guessing at a price . So do you think something between $34,000.00 and $36,000.00 is in the ballpark ?
Thanks , George
I use Collector Car Trader Online
to establish a price. In my opinion there are 4 classes of 67 GTO's.
1- Usaully a GTO found in a pasture with a blown or no engine and transmission. These cars provide very few parts, some buy them for the VIN and data plate. May be restored using wrecked GTO, tempest or lemans parts and sold as a GTO. Price ranges from $1,000 to $4,500.
2- A GTO that runs, the engine may be an improper letter code 400, has been butchered and needs much work. Could be used as a parts car. Price ranges from $4,500 to $8,500
3- A GTO with matching numbers but needs alot of attention, the interior is in good shape and the paint is original. This car could easily be restored to a fine automobile. Prices range from $8,500 to $20,000.
4- A GTO that is somewhat rare, I.E. Convertible, Ram Air car, coupe and the HO car. This car could also be a hardtop and would have all numbers and date codes matching, all data plate information correct and would be detailed and spotless. Prices range from $20,000 to $100,000
The car you are bidding on is somewhat rare being a coupe, I like a car to be original with only the options listed on the data plate. I prefer to have the same appearance as the day it was purchased new from the dealer.
I was watching a 3-day auction on a 67 about 4 hours ago, there was no activity from other bidders for 3 days. I was the first to place a bid 30 minutes before the auction ended. Within 3 minutes 6 more bids came in. The car did not sell because the reserve was not met.
Check out the other Goats on Collector Car Trader, you may find another car or get a better idea of how high to go.
