Man, I don't know if I've EVER seen such an unloved GTO. That car is an absolute mess, and a huge money pit. Someone will restore it, though. It has manual steering but power brakes.....kinda strange. You can tell that even before it was vandalized that it had been left to rot for decades.
Those pics are nearly 5 years old with the exception of the cowl tag. It will be in even worse shape now. Poor thing was raped and had its balls cut off. What they buyer is getting for the money is a series of numbers. Not much judge like left other than a decal or 2 and the stripes. It will take more to get that car back to life than what it will be worth for a long, long time. If those numbers mean that much to someone with tons of cash to them its nothing, to the average guy, not worth the money, the time, and aggravation. Someone made a nice pile of cash stripping it down and piece mealing it.
If someone does get it to restore it, there will be less official Judge parts on it than there is now. An authentic Judge with non Judge parts cloned back to a Judge. Its all a numbers game.
I been out of the restoration scene since selling my '67 hard top a few years back.
I picked this up last month and excited to jump back in.
The car is original Tyrol Blue/ Parchment, YS 400, factory A/C, Auto.
The car needs a ton of new sheet metal, full floor, full trunk, full quarters, tail...
First time poster and thought I would take a moment and share the details of my GTO frame off restoration. I have a 66’ GTO convertible that’s been in the family since almost day 1. The car came off the showroom floor in Missoula, MT. It’s the car my parents drove off in when they got married...
I need the center vent duct and the passenger side elbow that goes to the vent. I also need the vacuum hose harness. If anyone has these parts or even part numbers for the ducts it would be a huge help.
Not sure where to post this so here goes. Starting to put together the 65, and adding a like new reel out trunk light. Can't find the proper location and don't remember seeing one installed. Any help would be appreciated Thanks.,
