67 GTO find

Hello,

Im new to this board. I recently found a 67 GTO. The car is a 4 speed car hardtop. Thinking about buying it. The car has sat in a shed for the last 20 years. apparently the previous had to much to drink and hit a light pole in the parking lot. The drivers door has a dent and the rocker is pushed in. The Drivers quarter has some indirect damage as well. I looked the car over and it is complete. however upon looking i discovered that the passenger quarter has been replaced as well but they cut off the quarter from another car. There is a weld seam on the sail panel that is visable from the interior of the car. There also is a weld seam under the filler panel behind the rear window. and a seam on the tail panel. After reading all this is the car still worth putting back together. The owner is asking $3500. The body is otherwise damage free and rust free, The frame is straight with no issues as well also clean title. Like to read your comments and advise. If I buy this I would like to find some quarters to fix these issues or a parts car that has decent quarters and a good passenger side quarter and inner braces on the sail panel.

options for rear quarters on a 67

I am curious what is available for a 67 GTO quarter panels. I have a car that needs both quarters. the left side is damaged and the right side was replaced and was done poorly. What do you recommend or suggest.

Thanks

As a recent 67 purchaser myself, I can tell you that any part you're looking for is available. Whether it be used off of sites like frankspontiacparts.com or new reproduction parts. Just depends on your budget. Pretty easy to spend thousands of dollars, especially on a car that has been sitting for 20 years.

Full repro 1/4s hit the Westcoast a few months ago. Ck with Ames, or for that matter any nearby Camaro/Chevelle supplier that orders in shipping containers of Dynacorn repop sheetmetal.

Does the car come with the original numbers matching engine?

The owner said the engine is not original. The original one was replaced after it was blown in the 70's

Please don't take this the wrong way, but you will spend 2 to 3 times what the car is worth restoring it. If the engine was the original engine you could narrow that down to 1.5 - 2 times the value.
