1964 GTO-what to do with it?
Hello everyone, this is obviously my first post. Here is the situation.
I have a 1964 GTO that I just inherited from my father. My father bought the car in the Spring of 1965 and has had it every since. He passed away last year and now I need to decide what to do with it.
It is a 1964 hardtop model, 2 speed automatic, 389 single four barrel carb, power windows and AC. He always said this was kind of a rare 64 because he bought it from his dealership where he worked from a old woman who ordered the car with those options and ultimately traded it in, then he bought it.
It has had body work restoration over the years but nothing frame off or anything major, just him and local body men. It has the original engine, tranny and rear end---as he always told me he never did anything to the car except valve cover gaskets years ago. The body is now in pretty bad shape from sitting outside for so many years. It ran up until a few months ago and just stopped, not sure if it's something minor or major causing it not to run.
I have the original AC comp, front seats, back seat frame, radio, misc parts that he took out and kept. Obviously it has a newer radio, current black seats-in decent shape.
I am going to get the PHS papers soon, I checked on this site to decode the VIN #s and the car was built in Pontiac.
The BIG question is---what do I do with it? It saddens me to get rid of it but looking at it sit there makes me sad too. I grew up in that car and drove it as a teenager and had so much fun in it---just like he did as teenager!
Im not sure what its worth in its current conditon and who would know what price to ask and where to sell it?
Im sorry for long post but any help would be appreciated.
