That looks rougher than the Grand Prix I recently gave up on and sold. So, I guess we're both looking now. This picture makes it look better than it really is. Lots of rust thru that doesn't show at this angle.

Have examined a lot worse, properly restored, when it came to GTO convertibles.

Is is originally Montero Red? How about original manual trans car? original 4bbl or Tripower?

The body doesn't look too rough. What do you consider too far gone? It need new floors and trunk pan?

But it is too rough for me to attempt.
I think its time for the junk yard

They both look very restore-able. Put them up for sale. You will probably be surprised at how much they are still worth to someone.

Both these cars have value in parts alone. Rear tail panels, quarters and sail panels are not reproduced. Contact Frank's Pontiac parts in Oklahoma.

Maybe your right I shouldn't be so hasty.
while they may be out of my league to restore
Someone else might think they are restorable.
Both cars were documented 25 years ago
as true GTOs by PHS
I will explore that option
