hes not trying to get out of it because I won already. Someone from ebay emailed me the info(a bidder that retracted her bid due to this reason). If you look under feedback comments (conrtactor) you'll see he bought it from him for $9500 and that seller did discolse that info. Should I keep it and try to get the frame fixed? is it safe?
"I think the paint is original lacquer finish as it has checking in some areas. The vinyl top is in great shape. There is a small hole in the trunk deck and some rear fender deterioration. The shipper also damaged the frame at the tie down holes by using over tightened chains in lieu of straps. The car also came with lots of receipts documenting service and even the Midas warranty for the Dual Exhaust system."
The damage could be as minor as the paint being chipped, have you tried to contact the guy named contractor for more details? Have you ask the seller about the damage. I doubt the shipper could have caused major frame damage by securing the vehicle.
That car has the Optional HO 400ci 360hp engine. There were only 13,827 built with the WS, WV, XP, XS, YR and YZ engine letter codes. Properly restored it could be worth $35 to $50 K, I can show you cars being offered and selling in that price range.
Thanks 05gto I believe the car was PHS documented
I was able to clear everything up with the seller and I also had someone from the restoration shop contact him and found out more info about the car. Everything is find now.
I love my new GTO I been wanting one since '97 Can't wait to bring this baby back to mint condition!!
I don't remember the letter code in the E-bay ad for the engine, If it is XS or XP the Ram Air is standard on those 360 hp cars. Around 700 produced, 600 were 4 speed (XS) and only 100 or so were automatics (XP).
If that is the case you have a valuable and extremely rare 67 GTO. The XS and XP engines were documented to have 360 hp, because of the ram air the actual HP was closer to 400.
05GTO, I want to thank you because you have been the biggest help. I dont have the car in hand just yet. Its coming down from N. California. These are the pictures I got from the seller but as soon as I get the car, I'll let you know. Thanks again
