On part cars, for decades, I have typically bought where I could, minimum, triple out against the initial purchase expense. Thats if the partscar was being brought in to be processed for parts stock, & not to supply parts for my own projects. For my own projects, have always been very picky & have paid up more. Over the last 20 years, I've factored in transportation expenses as well. With my Cummins Ram, eventually the truck does have to have maintainence, expensive tires, batteries, etc.
Not sure what the seller wants for this mess, but I'd look it over closely if the idea us to part it out, esp if the asking price is over, say $600-700. On the 4spd, I'd make sure it is a Muncie 4spd, not a Saginaw, & that the 4spd shifter is a factory round handle GTO shifter, not a aftermarket Hurst or ITM piece. Decent '68 & 69 Pontiac A-body Hurst 4spd shifters will roll. transplanted ITM shifters, Scuffed up chrome 2nd Gen Bird 4spd shifters not worth much. Typically, my experience is nice used '68 pieces sell, but similar part '69 GTO pieces have always sold better.
