Sorry, overhauled. That sounds worse. Nothing bad with restoring, but to say it is "absolutely original, never restored" is far fetched. Good luck with the sale. You couldn't get away with that on BaT.

IMHO, a rebuilt original drivetrain does not make a car a restored car.
It makes it a maintained car.
I owned this car and I wish I had never sold it.
It was awesome when I owned it.
I can't imagine how much better it is with the rebuilt drivetrain.
Is it worth $69K?, I do not know; the market will decide that.
That being said, when I'm selling a unique car and a buyer "yips" at the price, I tell them to go find another like it and get back to me.
Just my $0.02!

There were 41 Ferrari GTO'S built, I do not know of a single one that has not had a full mechanical restoration, got a spare $25-40 Million laying about!

Original and unrestored is just that. I'm not arguing the fact that it is a wonderful car but the OP should choose his descriptive words better.

I just re-read the description and thought it was fine.
Let's just agree to disagree on that and move on.

Sadly we're right off-topic now but I think it's worth remembering that on a forum your personal opinion is welcome: I think it's a stretch to claim you represent some silent majority. So far no-one has come out in support of your position.

So far the weight of opinion is against you. When I find myself in a hole I tend to find it best to stop digging.

The market will determine whether the price expectation is right.

Taken to its extreme it would mean that if you did a head job or replaced a BMC and boosters, or a clutch, or shocks and springs, it was not original. Give me a break, These are 50 year old cars. What engine lasts that long? An engine rebuild does not constitute a "restoration". We all know what constitutes routine and preventative maintenance, versus a freshen-up, versus a resto. Nice car and GLWTS.

I know Mike Besic, as the friend of a friend. That engine was done correctly, for certain. And it ADDS value to the car.

My 2 cents... I purchased this car from the high bidder on BAT, when he decided it was more then he wanted to deal with,you can go through the listing for detail.
https://bringatrailer.com/listing/19...a-sprint-gt-3/

I did not pay anywhere near the purchase price on BAT. (BUT) I replaced everything that went up, down and sideways (my own Labor and a lot of parts from Alfaholics).and now insured by Haggerty for my investment...(see my garage for photos) It is a sweet ride ....
