My uncle passed and his dream car was always the '66 GTO. I inherited his and I've maintained it, showed it, stored it for a few years now but not being one to have time and get enjoyment from this car like him, I think it is time for me to prepare it for sale and think about my own dream car.
Anyways, I noticed that the VIN in the door and on the firewall are not matching. Why might this have been done? Maybe to make it a sports coupe instead of hard top? My uncle bought it as the more rare sports coupe and the b pillar does not disappear when rolling down the windows so I assume it is safe to market it as such?
What, in general, do you/did you look at when purchasing your GTO? What was more desirable?
This one is a tri-power 4-spd and has air though I don't know if it is factory or not. Anyway to tell? Does it make a big difference?
It has the original dash and stereo but someone added a CD changer in the trunk which I haven't figured out how to make work. Does this have an affect on the value if it is working or not?
Thanks in advance to anyone who gives me some help on this. I just want to get a fair value while getting this car to someone who would appreciate it more than me. I appreciate the history and seem to prefer the straight-line rubber burners over track cars, I just can't afford to keep it in storage and will have less time in the semi-near future thanks to an expected work promotion.
