Need advice on 1968 GTO project.

I am selling some car projects for an older guy. He doesn't want anything to do with the selling. He has a GTO 1968 project that I have put on eBay. I think he wants too much for it. I started it at what he wants for it. Anyone who would check out eBay item number 171437418661 I would appreciate any input you can give me. He has been reasonable on his other prices so far so maybe I am out of touch. Thanks

It appears to be a very rare Verdoro green 68. Even with that going for it... I'm thinking at that price you are looking for a very rare buyer as well. Matt

I have rebuilt 2 of them and I think that's way past it. If you restored that car you would spend triple what it is worth. I do not think its worth the price to tow it away.....

It's a better car than it looks like in the field there. But not worth the price to tow it away? Just the parts alone would have good value. Has a nice nose and hideaway headlights and the heads are in the trunk.

I think you are right, there are a lot of good parts there. However, I doubt you will find many that want to pay that much for a parts car. Parting it out would be a shame anyway. OK, that said, you indicated he maybe asking too much for the car. IMO you are correct. Might try to convince the owner to go with an "or Best Offer" selling strategy. I think you would increase interest in the car. Matt

It is a doable project, but I would not pay more than 2500 for that. Of course since it is Vedoro Green, I would not offer more than 1500...... I think if he is offered anything over 2k he would be lucky....

Thanks for the inputs. I don't disagree with anything said except the "it's not worth the tow bill". Comment.

What these gents said. It might be a $2500 car for someone who wanted a project. But it would cost much more than its worth to restore it. Easier to buy the same car finished for 20-25k and drive it off into the sunset. Unfortunately, it's worth much more in parts than it is as a complete car. Personally, being outside and weathered, its too rough for me to be interested in at any price. Good luck with the sale.

He said he would come down to 5k but will keep it if all he gets is 2500ish. I suspect it will continue to rust into the field.
