Parts Car

Hey guys! I found a 1967 lemans about 200 miles away that is still intact but doesn't run. It looks like a rust bucket but there are parts I could use. He wanted $2000.00 for it. It does have the title. I got him down to $1800 WITH delivery. Is that a good deal?
I can use:
Radio
Steering Wheel
Ashtray
Outside Mirror
Lower door driver's side trim
Might need the front bumper
Rear view mirror
Maybe more stuff
I'd like to know your opinion on whether there may be enough left to part out to make up the $ difference, since I know I could probably find these parts for cheaper, but they wouldn't all be in one place.

Linda

If the car is rusty, are the parts you need going to even be good enough for your car with a fresh paint job?
You could swap out some of the parts and resell the Lemans as a builder.
Or you could just have two projects.

my car was once bought as a parts car, thankfully the guy went bankrupt and i was able to rescue her before too much damage was done. Sounds like a pretty good deal, but i'd always rather see one be restored than cut up. I guess it is just a lemans, and it sounds like it has alot of parts you need. I'd just do some shopping and make a little tally of how much you can save, along with how much you could make off other parts.

Hi Linda. It's a good deal if you need the parts. You can probably get what you need, and, with a little time and effort, sell off the rest and come out even. The Lemans might even have some options your GTO doesn't have. $1800? That's what I bought my '67 GTO convertible for! (In 1983!) Times have changed....They say change is good......I dunno.......

$1800?

Hey, I'd give you 1800 for it.....Just kidding. I have a contact here that maybe would like to go in on it. He's yep..another GTO guy. It's too bad it's not an AC car for the whole dash panel and housing is in great shape!

I like the custom "Driveshaft on the Front Seat" option. Rare! It looks lke it has '66 front seats. The dash "woodgrain" looks good, but I think your car needs the one with a bigger opening where the heater/AC controls are. Nice looking wheel. Are you sure you need the whole car, though? Small stuff, like wheel well mouldings, window mouldings, trim, etc. are getting harder to find, and this car does look complete. Can't use that rear bumper, though. GTO's have back-up lights in the bumper. I say, get the parts car, put a junkyard 455 in it, air shocks in the back, sponge out the interior, and go "Rat-Goating"!!

Linda,

I saw a parts car today on Ebay in Washington state which close to you I believe. Doesn't run, but it was for sale for $7.00, yes $7.00. I will go back to Ebay and lookup the item # and post again.

Linda,

It is a 66 in Blaine Washington. Item # 160222004133 on ebaymotors.com

It looks in better shape and certainly cheaper than $1800.
