New to forum. Just getting back into a 66 GTO after 30 years messin with a 1959 Panhead (that's an old Harley.) Gave the panhead to my son now want another GTO. Kinda miss her,(the panhead) she is pretty cherry now!!! Anyway I had a 66 goat as a 17 year old in 1974. Sold it around 1979 for what I bought it for-$450.00. Yeah, imagine that. It got totalled 2 weeks after I sold it!!! It was a 389 with the 3- 2's. I had 428 heads on it with a huge isky cam and 488 gears in the rear. Yeah, I know, I shoulda never sold it !!! Anyway, I am researching motor codes and the like and looking at what's out there for sale. Just getting to learn the market. It looks like there isn't much middle ground as far as prices. They are either rust buckets, usually without a motor, for say 4-7000 to "restored" ones starting at 30K. Forget the convertables, to be honest they are way over priced- I say that mainly 'cuzz I could never afford the current asking prices!!! Anyway, what I will be buying is a 1966- 389- 3 2bbls. 4 speed. I just finished "restoring" a 1952 Chevy P/u (3100) and will purchase my goat as soon as that sells. I am capable of doing 75% of "fixin' up" but am getting tired of big projects so I want one at least most of the way "done". So my ? is, Is 30K about right for what I want or does the current market force these sellers to go down on the initial price? It does seem like many have been for sale for quite some time. Sorry to be long winded, just getting excited, and at 55 yrs. old that takes something special- LIKE A 1966 GTO !!!!
