1971 Gt-37 How Rare ?????

I have the opportunity to buy a 1971 1/2 GT-37. I was wondering if anyone knows how rare these are. I am told it is a numbers matching 350 2bbl with original 350 auto trans. it has original paint and reflective stripes still. It is in rough shape but might be worth restoring. Any and all help would be great.

Thats a great FIND! It is rarer than the GTO! In the day it was advertised as " The GTO for kids under 30" Part of the GT-37 option was the Stripes & hood locking pins. The GT-37 was a $237 option on the T-37. Combined total of GT-37 built in the 71 and 71 1/2 years was 5802.It was the late John Sawruk's favorite car. His was a beauty. Hope you decide to go for it. Maybe I'll get to see it at a GTOAA convention some day. Be sure to say HI. LES

It's not going to have a value as high as a GTO or a GT-37 with the 400 engine option but it is a worthwhile restoration. As stated , there weren't many made so yes it is "rare".
Do you have more pics ?

Can't say I've ever noticed any of the vendors listing cloth covers. You might have to find an outfit making custom covers for that one. Call Legendary and see if they are interested. Getting the correct material and matching the pattern will be the hard part. There are companies who advertise that service on the web.

D1147 Thanks for the updated pictures Actuality looks like a pretty solid and fairly complete car. I know I have seen PUI Interiors listed before in the making of a LeMans bench seat prototype. I think you should be able to find it. Check out the cover of the January 2009 "LEGEND" if you want to see JOHN's GT-37. Does the Driver Front fender have the same rust as the original pass side one did cause looks like a replacement pass side is there already. Keep us posted. Les

They only made 8336 t-37's so i would think only about 5800 gt-37's were made
