Hi, new to the forum but long time GTO fan. I am looking at purchasing my first GOAT. I am going to look at this 1967 next weekend but would like your opinions on what to look for and estimated value. I am not looking for a perfect car, I want a driver that I can increase value with some elbow grease. This particular car is a 67 sport coupe, with the original 335hp 400. Owner says he thinks the transmission used to be an auto, but I ordered PHS documents and verified this is an original 3 spd car. Color, engine and trans seem to line up with PHS documents. Car needs paint, trim pieces and a little TLC, he is asking $22K. Too much? I have more pics if needed.

Thanks

Hopefully others with much more experience will chime in. I've owned 2 67's which is my favorite year. I don't want to offend you or anyone else who owns one, but a 2d post model doesn't bring as much as a 2d ht. Don't get me wrong, I like them also. Does the interior need attention?? What about the undercarriage?? How are the floor and trunk pans?? Any signs of rust around the reveal moldings?? Bondo?? Are the quarters straight?? The bottoms of the doors. If you can drive that away for $22,000.00, it might not be a bad deal. I think I would offer 20 thousand and see what happens. I'd like to have that little wiggle room. I don't know your finances, but if you had that 20 thousand cash, on the spot, take it with you, tell him what you have, and a small wager says you'd be driving it home. I just saw you are from AZ. If the car is there, I would think it is probably pretty much rust free, Nicholas.

Thanks for the feedback. I was actually considering doing just what you suggested and bringing $20k cash. I just wanted to make sure I'm not paying too much. I realize post cars are not considered as desirable but I like them just fine. The car is a Texas car without rust except for a small spot in the trunk, at least that is what I have been told. I think I will pursue this car thanks for the help.

I recall one time I was buying a car and the guy wanted $20,000.00 for it. The ad said firm at that price. Made arrangements to look at the car and brought $18,000.00 with me and another $2,000.00 separately in case it was a really good deal. I looked at the car and it was nice. I offered $18,000.00 and told him I had the money with me. He said no and I thought my offer was fair and began to walk away. He said wait a minute. You have the money with you right now? Yup. Showed him the money all in hundreds. Bought the car for the $18,000.00 and the next day trailer-ed it home. My limited experience; money talks. Best wishes with your purchase, Nicholas.

i agree, looks like a solid post car and a great foundation to drive as you make it yours. Partial to the color, mine was barrier blue also, i sprayed Bahama blue metallic a 90;s GM color and its a near perfect match with a a fine silver flake. That made it easier doing the paint because i didnt have to take it apart to blend in door jambs.
i say 20....if it runs good and is mechanically sound. Go for it!!!

I say offer 18K. you can always go up, maybe end up at 20k. Sucks when you shoot out a number and he takes it so quick ,you have to think maybe you could have gotten it for less. 18k is probably a good investment number. I got a post car also. You can see a bit more in my garage. Good luck.
