urgent help! 66 & 67 GTO

Long story short, I found a guy who supposedly has a 66-67 gto. Im from California, so I fly out to see these cars we meet up I take pictures fly back the next day, both vehicles are missing the vin tags on driver door panel. But they both have all the badging and look like gtos! He only has the title to the 67... my question is how do I tell if its a real gto or not? Fyi both vehicles are 4000 for the pair........pictures uploaded, thanks guys

Both of these cars are the sport coupe model. The cowl tag on the firewall should have the these numbers for the 1966: 66-24207 and the 1967: 67-24207. These are the GTO post window codes.

Also if the guy has the title to the 67 in should have a VIN on the title. It should have 24207 in that VIN number as well and you can get a PHS from that VIN.

One might be a hardtop though, The 2 look alike in your pics with all the mismatch paint jobs.

It looks like the so called blue car is a non post car so it should have the numbers 24217.

With the VIN tags gone and the condition they are in, they are parts cars at best and not much in the way of usable parts left. The grilles in the '67 are the most valuable pieces between them. The amount of rust is significant and the interiors are trash from the weather. I wouldn't pay $1000 for the pair....sorry....

You would need to get state assigned VINs for either if you ever wanted to get them on the road. The cars were scrapped at some point and that is most likely why the tags were removed. They were never supposed to be back on the road.

The 67 or blue car does not have the correct GTO grilles installed in the car. The ones laying on the seats with the GTO logo are not 67s either.

My brother does sheet metal work for a living (ultimate hydraulics) Does that do any justice? Or did I buy the short end of a stick

Personally, I wouldn't touch them without VIN tags. That's a whole legal can of worms you may regret. Rebuilding the car is possible. Getting tags in CA may not be. Don't spend another dime on them until you are certain you can get them legally titled.

If the trunk floors are as rusty as I suspect they are, peel up what's there over the left frame rail behind the wheel. The partial VIN should be stamped on the top. The state police will want to run the numbers to see if they come up stolen. I doubt they will but from there, you may be able to apply for new VIN numbers and titles.

Very ambitious projects. 1000s of hours whether they become a resto-mod or true restored car. It looks as though the 67 may be the real car. Not a 67 expert, but isn't that tail panel a GTO exclusive? Doesn't appear to have been changed and "tributes" were a much later practice than their years of rust tell. I'd be more worried about the frames than the sheet metal. Also, under the mirror on the roof support you'll find the original vin.
