Rusty 1974 GTV

Not my car, but an interesting one. Depends on where it ends the auction.

Currently at $3K with 15 hours remaining. I doubt it'll stay below $5K, but you never know. Sold without reserve. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/19...-romeo-gtv-73/

Got a 1600 GTV, which is nice, but the 2 litre cars GO.
I could add that one the garage and happily play. Maybe fibreglass panels and the big-*** gtam wheels.
A bit too far away for me, tho.

Still at $3K. I doubt it'll sell for that. 1 hour and change left.

That jumped WAY more than I thought (I was in till it crossed $6k). With BAT fee + import + transportation (and I'm 4 hours away).....$9k before resto work even begun. The side shot with jack points, rocker, muffler all eaten away just spooked me. I'm less afraid of the body work than the bits & pieces that add up on these.....

Agree, and for such a common model!

I was planning to try it if it stayed in the $3K range. I figure the parts would cover the plus transport and fees. That is, if the car was too badly rusted. The frame could be completely gone. Suspension attachment points?? Inner rocker looked pretty bad too and no jack points. Rusted muffler didn't bother me - I've seen some pretty bad exhaust systems in Chicago when I was younger. In high school, I had a 1976 Ford T-Bird that was 7 years old and the entire exhaust system has rusted through and was literally falling apart. The rockers were okay. The fenders and quarter panels had rust holes, but were fixable. Frame was rock solid.

At $7,500, someone bought themselves a pretty big project. I watched the video of the guys pulling the car from the storage and it looked bad then. 3 of the 4 wheels were frozen.

I showed this car to my body shop guy and he told me it looks like the car was sitting in a shallow pond for years. He's a CA guy, so he hasn't seen what winter snow, ice and salt will do to a car.

I wish the buyer good luck and I believe he overpaid for the car. It's going to take a lot of time and money to fix it And the guy from overseas didn't help buy telling everyone it's a steal at that price. If it was true, he should've bought the car, right?

Combine the two plus $15k in quality paint + finish bits + assembly.....and you are treading water, maybe. The shell + engine....well lots of bondo still on that shell, and to do it right you are blasting it down & starting over.

Best bet is to buy a good one, maybe strong money upfront, but in the long haul all the heavy lifting has been done, and ends up being a more cost effective approach.

@PSk

The rockers on my 1976 T-Bird were okay. The rockers on the GTV were there in spirit. I'm wondering how they fell off. On the freeway when he hit a dip? Maybe on a side street? Or pulling out of a a driveway with snow banks? Or maybe he thought he would fix them, so he took them off? My guess is that his friends were playing a trick on him and they were just going to pull on them a little to make them look funny and they fell off in their hands.
