Pretty car. Just a wild *** guess, I would say mid-30's. Others with more knowledge of the market will chime in I'm sure as I have not been in the market for fastbacks...

" Location makes a huge difference-

Mid to high 30's easily, in the right location I could see low 40's."


I agree with this 100% above....

Where you sell it and how your sell it will surely make a difference...

Some buyers will be turned off by the Non-Original Front Seats and White Faced "Pro-Comp" Gauges as they're not original....but it won't turn off too many...only real sticklers...and its something easily reversed.. DO you still have the Original Front Seats and Original Dash Cluster???

It certainly is the right color!!

Some will obviously want to remove the Original "GT" Stripe and change the Wheels though....to obviously make a "Bullitt" Clone wanabe... Which I can agree with...

I see you having no issues selling it...

:eek:)

I'm at the mid $30's to low $40's, depending on how nice it was done and how long ago it was done.

If it was all factory type original that would be one thing. If it had A/C that would be another thing. So there are market value shortcomings either way despite the GT pedigree. Mid thirties max if no rust is in evidence. Nice car.

When I bought the car it did not have the original engine, trans, seats or dash cluster so I wasn't worried about keeping it all original.
There is no rust and I have about two thousand miles on it since the restoration, it runs and drives amazing so I will be sad to see it go.

Now that you have a few people's input and the numbers being fairly close, what were you thinking the number would/should be?

We hardly ever get the input from the seller where they are on the number...

I've got over 40 into it but I know that I will never be able to make a profit on it, that's not why we restore them.
I am thinking to ask about 38 and settle for mid to low 30s.
Now I have to figure out the best way to advertise it, I'm a little nervous about using Craigslist, with the scams. .
Maybe Hemmings is better?

BTW , thanks for all the input

Try the "Bring a Trailer" website......Great website....High traffic of visitors...but low volume of cars offered.....Perfect place... They'll go nuts over it over there..

Most cars I see posted on Bring A Trailer draw an outrageous amount of scrutiny. They are going to nitpick every little thing and demand a billion different photos just to make snarky comments.

He's got a clean '68 GT Fastback... I don't see them nitpicking it too much... as its a very desirable car... despite its minor shortcomings...which are few..

:eek:)

Hi V1rotate, been a long time lurker here and your car caught my eye. I've been debating on finishing my car or selling and buying a finished one. Anyways I'm interested in finding out more about your car. You can respond back here or email me at; [email protected] Please give me a heads up here if you e-mail me. As I don't use that e-mail often.

Nice car.

To me the seats would be a deal killer though. I’m not a fan of aftermarket seats.

Seats are seats... Easily attainable...easily swapable... even today...there were so many cars of these made...including '68-'69's which is what this car's seats takes...
