I'm new to the forum. 1st car was a 1969 firebird blue/blue 350, 2bbl, th350. Had many 1sts in that car
Fast forward to today and wife has given the go-ahead for project-GOAT!
I've done the 5.0 mustang thing for years (347 stroker, powerdyne blower, vortech blower motor, bolt-on motor.... autocrossing, drag racing)......
Recently got an 01 Z06.... but gave it to the wife...... not my bag.
I"m an old school muscle car guy at heart.
SO I'm looking at a 1969 GTO with paperwork showing it is a true GTO, RAIII car. Blue/blue, Factory AC, PDB, PS with the reverberator rear speaker.
It's always been a Texas car.... so no rust on the body or subframe. Paint is a 6/10.
Has all orig emblems trim/interior. Interior is a 7.5/10.
Engine is a date correct WS 400, RAIII with correct cam, heads, intake,carb. Just not no's matching.
Trans was switched to th-400 at some point. and hurst his/hers console added. I noticed the clutch pedal was removed, but you can tell it was a 4spd because of the small brake pedal.
It's missing the RA bits and the CA parts.
Runs/drives. Needs tune-up. Been sitting for about 9 yrs in a where-house.
Glass is good.
His 1st asking price is $18,400.
Would this be a good GTO to restore?
Is this a fair price?
I can do all the work on the car myself. No big deal for me to swap back to 4spd. I can install all the AC bits and the ram-air stuff can be had off of fleabay.
What do you guys think?
