How much is my 66 GTO worth?

I am the original owner of a 1966 GTO and I sometimes think that I might want to sell it. The problem is that I have no idea of what it is worth. From what I have seen on ebay motors I have a very rough idea but there are so many variables to consider I don't feel confident in my estimate.

Does anyone have any recommendations on other sources of data that I could use to get a better idea of the value of my 66?

389, 4bbl, 4speed, 99%original not rebuilt
repainted with some scratches (one large gouge) in paint
Over 180,000 miles
Garaged for all but 3 years.

Thanks

NADA or Manheim Gold on the internet will give you ballpark figures. The most accurate way to find out what it's worth is to find out what it sells for: on ebay! Put it on ebay with a reserve and see what the market will bear. Prices have softened a bit in this economy, but they have softened on everything else, too. My advice: Don't even think about selling the car unless you are certain you will never be able to drive it again or want to drive it again. I guarantee that you will regret it!!! It's a beuty, and I would hold on to it!!!

One big advantage you have is you are the original owner. This category of cars usually bring more money because you know everything about the car and pass that information along to buyers.

Don't ssell it ...you'll be sorry !! But If you decide to , let us know first! Seriously, alot depends on the true condition of the body, rust, dents etc are all fixable, but it is VERY rare to find one that looks factory. I have been looking. Post some pics, the car looks sweet. Eric

That alone should add 15-25% to the value of the car.

Ebay seems to have gone 'wholesale' and I am sure that is due to the economy. There are some muscle car/collector selling sites online that have a better representation as to market value. They are sites that cater to true enthusiasts that are willing to pay what Goats are really worth. I even read where a member of GTOAA paid either $53k or $63k for an original, excellent shape '66 or '67 if I remember correctly. I, too, would recommend you keep it and drive it.
