    Unless your looking at a diesel powered rig your not going to get that kind of mileage in the rigs your looking for.

    So the ONLY drivetrain change was the engine, tranny and rear end? :rolleyes:
    Do you still have any of the original GTO drivetrain?

    The car is just as I bought it from my uncle who's had it since 1972, except for new Cragar SS mags on Grand Am radial tires. It has a 66 389 YC block motor which is a B body Pontiac. My uncle had ported the heads and installed an aftermarket cam in it. He took out the 4 speed and installed the turbo 400 automatic in it with the B & M shifter back in the 70's. The rearend itself is original to the car, but the third member itself was switched when he installed the auto trans in the car. My uncle didn't have the original motor, trans or third member to it still.

    There was only 77k and change made of 66 and 67 GTO hardtops from the factory. These cars just keep going up in price as they are few and far between finding one that's a survivor car.

    It's in decent to good shape, but IMHO the lack of the original drivetrain and the 'custom' interior hurt it's value somewhat.

    That was my comment.
    :D
    I know what you mean about limited numbers of a certain model.
    I have a 67 firebird formula 400 RAM air.
    they made 65k firebirds in 67, 68 of them were formula 400 ram air.
    I am missing the ram air hood the previous owner changed the powerglide to th400, but the original Powerglide is in the trunk.
    Now that is rare. :D
    But your GTO is really much cleaner than my FB.
    Good luck on the Sale Trade.
    Too bad i have no money now.
    :o

    Not having all the original drivetrain does bring the price down some, but if it was all original, it would be worth way more than what I'm asking.

    Thanks to Barrett Jackson, modified classic muscle cars sometimes bring more money than the all original cars do now.

    Don't get me wrong, I certainly appreciate the car and wish you the best of luck selling/trading it. The older Poncho's are among my all time favorite cars, and your's certainly is in great shape.
