Anyone know where to find a Gto?

Anyone know where to find a gto that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I am looking for a project gto that is in between a 1965 and 1970 that runs and drives. And I dont want one all done up but just want it in one piece. What I was looking to spend is like 3,300 or 3,500 but depending on the condition I will be willing too pay 5k. If you know where there's one it would be great if you could reply to this post and let me know.
Thanks, Bill

Hi Bill

I would look on craigslist in your area.


But the running kind you speak of may be rare at the price point you are looking for.

I just got a barn find for 2500 with rust in the usual places but anticipate getting it running with few entailments if I can.

Here are some examples in my area and as you can see price is kind of asymmetrical.

1970 GTO Tempest Ram Air III

1969 GTO

1966 Pontiac Gto

1969 Pontiac GTO This one is a run & drive

1968 GTO Project

This should give you a sample of my area but good luck

Yeah it may take some time. The other things to do is like on that show american pickers you just drive around and see what is out by the barn. You could go to swap meets and some car shows will have something for sale there but not likely at your price point. Essentially if you find one that is street-able and inspectable then miraculous things do happen but keep up hope. Also try this site: eBay Classifieds (Kijiji) - Post & Search Free Local Classified Ads. along with any local auto trader and newspaper type publications.

Kind of shocked me, weird that they are mostly 68's but there are a couple up here in the rust belt.

I spent 5K a couple years ago on this in northern California. A little steep, but I had been looking for close to a year and got tired of looking. Had to drive 5 hours to get it. But look at her now. It is well worth it. And thankfully I'm not done.

for 5k you will be HARD pressed to find a car that both runs AND drives. As Rukee said he searched for YEARS and that was some time ago, keep saving your $$$ so when you do find a car you dont miss out on it. Just look on ebay to see what you get for 5k these days,unfortunately its not much. Hope you get lucky though.
