I'm a new member from NY and I'm interested in purchasing a GTO I came across. I want some quick input as to what it might be worth since I'm a Chevelle guy and not well versed with Goats. Here are the details:
1970 GTO hardtop, original 400/TH400 car, 242 VIN. It is Canadian built so not only can you get the paperwork from PHS but you could also get it from GM of Canada. The owner has neither. The car should have come with a 10-bolt but currently has a 4.10 12-bolt which he says came out of another GTO (Chevy 12-bolt, not the Olds version). He's unsure if the tranny is original but it is a TH400. The car currently has a NOM 400 in it but it doesn't come with the car. Solid trunk/floors/frame and I believe it has the original quarters/spatter paint in the trunk. Disc brakes/F41 suspension still present. The current owner bought the car in 1979 and it has been local since new.
Atoll blue paint, black vinyl top (which has since been removed) and blue bucket seat interior. The car used to have sidepipes on it so it has a few holes drilled into the rockers which will need to be fixed but can be covered up by the rocker panel molding. The sidepipes were the reason the car has the incorrect rear valence without the cutouts. Has refurbished 15" rally II wheels on it with good rubber. The main issue aside from not having an engine is that it is mostly apart as it was disassembled for paint and never put back together. The owner claims he has every single piece in storage. The paint looks nice but is not a quality job. There is overspray in the wheel wells, on the frame, etc. and the window felts have been painted over. It also has some dings that were not fixed prior to paint.
It has some pretty cool options such as power windows, AC, buckets/console, rear window defrost, power drivers seat, etc.
I know the interior pic isn't that great but it has a new carpet but the rest is original. The headliner is in good shape as well as the passenger/rear seat but the drivers seat has some tearing and the sail panels/rear shelf needs to be reupholstered. The dash pad is also cracked and needs to be replaced.
So what's it worth?
