Newbie with a whats it worth question

Hi I'm new to the forum and I have a car I have been thinking about making a offer on but I'm hoping you folks can give insight on what a GTO would be worth. I have this one picture and thats all. I appologize for that. The car seems to all be there and it had very little rust from what I could see. It is a automatic and I don't know what motor it has. I do beleive the car is all origianl and the windows are all good as well as the rims and the interior. It will need the usual brake work and gas tank draining and carb cleaning and other odds and ends to get it drivable. So what would it be worth in driving shape with no real rust issues, and a decent motor and transmission? Thank you for any help and advise.
Johnny

If it is a true GTO (PHS would indicate) as it sits in this picture, I would say around $4k - $5k.

Thank you, but what is PHS and what should it say to indicate it's a real GTO?

That depends, does it include all the mystery boxes inside? It truly depends on options, trans etc. Get vin and post more pics if you can. I say anywhere from 3-8k

PHS is the Pontiac Historic Services. They purchased all the original dealer paperwork from pontiac and can provide you with all the cars original paperwork if you provide them with the cars VIN. This will give you all the details about when and where the car was made and what options/engine/trans it had.

Here is a link to their site

Here is a link to show you an example of what they can provide you with

LOL, Well if you can tell that it is not a GTO Then that implies that you can tell if it is a GTO. With only 2 options if you know 1 you automatically know the other

They can be identified either way, but you can't do it just by the VIN or Data Tag on the car. You've got to research the VIN through PHS. They've got the records that will say if the car was originally equipped with the GTO option or not.

Do the 65's stamp the VIN on the engine and transmission? To prove numbers matching original drive train?
