1966 GTO's For Sale...Worth it?

Hey all,

I am new here and I am in the market for a 1966 GTO. I am trying to get a feel as to what they are worth currently.

Here is an ad of a 66 GTO that looks great. What's it worth?

Thanks!

It's worth whatever a buyer is willing to pay for it. It's not original, so now it'a love and quality of build. Lots of restomod stuff on that car. Really nice car.

Burning rubber since 1982!!
My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.

I know Jeff likes that color combo. It is nice. I like the modded options and I'm a '66 fan. For me, if I looked at it and it was very solid with no hidden agendas and extremely clean. I personally would be interested. Although they contradict themselves by saying, restored to PHS documented. Is it worth $38,900? Hmmmm, I guess the buyer would have to determine that...... Might come down to, how bad do you want it?????

Just looking at it, of course I want it. Love the color, the year, the body, the style. Problem is, looks can be deceiving. So, I need to figure out the fair market value.

If a car you want is many states away, is there a way to have a trusted person look at it and assign a fair value?

Thanks again.

i thought same thing Green, just worded funny, PHS Paint and interior color i think is what they are saying....nice looking car...partial to 66's, is good you Know what year you like, look around, there are plenty of them out there and your buying in a buyers market, really depends on what you want to have it for as to what it will cost, driver, weekend cruiser, car shows, investment? and how much work you are willing to invest in it as well as cash.

I am looking for it as a first classic car purchase. Weekend cruiser, a show or 2...nothing serious as far as competing. Looking for something in the year and style I like that is in good shape and drivable. I am not looking to buy something and have to put a ton of work into it right away. Not interested in flipping it.

Man, I love this color!

Thanks!

That pic doesn't look bad, He has put some nice things in it as well. It's what he's not telling in the ad that I would be cautious about i.e oil consumption, how does it drive, steer, hidden rust, frame, etc. There is always a ... but.

If it pans out ok 20K for a driver isn't too bad if he's asking 20 surely he will settle for a little less? If you are after a driver and not concerned about originality 17-20K with it panning out isn't too bad, IMO.

66 GTOs - Pricing Differences

Hey everyone,

I am new here, and have a general question to throw out there.

When looking for a 66 GTO to purchase, what makes the difference between a ~$20K GTO and a ~$40K GTO.

For example...

A ~$20K GTO:
CarsOnline.com: Pontiac For Sale

A ~$40K GTO:
CarsOnline.com: Pontiac GTO For Sale

Would love to hear some thoughts on this. If you can point me to any resources on 66 GTOs, that would be great as well.

Thanks everyone.

Ok....my favorite color combo! '71 455 with 670 heads=race gas or booster. Compression too high for pump gas with that combo. T-10 trans: weaker than a correct
Muncie and not a GTO application. Was this car converted from an automatic, or did the trans get blown up? Dash: not a rally dash, and all the chrome at the guage bezels appears painted over with black. Overall, a clean looker that bears further investigation: phs docs, etc. '66 is a great year GTO!
