i'm thinking of buying 65 gto no motor or trans for $2500 .is that a good price ?
has rust on roof rails fenders, floor ,
I think so...........I suppose it depends on how involved the rust repair would be (and if you can do it yourself), is it surface rust or rust through requiring replacement of fenders, floor, roof rails ect....? What I can tell you is that I paid $6500 for mine and i made the deal having to give back the motor/tranny to the owner (he rebuilt and and was in love with it and it was the only way I could pry the car from his fingers). I could have left the body alone and enjoyed it but..........I decided to have the body done. The body work I had done.....replacement of both rear quarters, outer wheel wells, trunk pan patches, the trunk lip that holds the weather stripping replaced, patches on the inner wheel wells, trunk supports above the gas tank replaced, door hinges replaced, couple of patches in the doors, complete paint strip, re-working of the entire car body and put in epoxy primer, that ran me 8K.
I realize with this being a clone, when Im all said and done I will have more in it than its worth but Im totally okay with that as this car is the holy grail of cars for me and plan on having it for the remainder of my years (Im 36 y/o) so in the end if I make it another say 40 years enjoying this car it will average about 600 dollars a year. thats only $50/month!!!!!
Well worth the money as far as Im concerned.
