Thanks Richard, I do have this one in the Registry, sent in by Bob Teets. I really appreciate the due diligence of members to pass on all GT/CS-HCS cars found on the internet and pass them on here. Because of this, We have added over 100 unknown cars to the Registry, which include known clones, Gold Nugget Specials with GT/CS Clothing (three so far) etc. Thanks again and keep them coming. Mike

still a LOT high for that Frankenstein vehicle. Yikes!! Looks like the new owner will have lots to find (of the hidden variety) once he/she brings it home!

Anyone has an opinion of what would be a fair price for this project?

I see $20K+ to bring this car back: complete interior, exterior body & paint, floor pan(s) & torque box(s). A low optioned model. It has no P/S or P/B. Economically, past the point of no return. IMHO. If I were to take it on, $3K-$5K value based on closer inspection.

+1 on 20k plus... on the upside its not overly molested, just neglected. Rust looks to be potentially significant, torque box looks shot, door and rear 1/4 show some rot... trunk looks suspect.

Engine bay looks pretty stock and the interior needs a gutting and replacement, but thats easy.

Body and paint could go 10k easy, depending on what you can do yourself vs pay for metal replacement. Interior 1-2k, basic engine/trans rebuild 4-6k, brakes and suspension another 1k, new bumpers and chrome or replace window frames another 1k, all the other "minor" stuff (trims, badges, etc) and you get to 20k without trying too hard.... so if you paid less than 10k you would only be slightly upside down as nice C codes seem to be in the mid 20's recently...

IMHO if its running and driveable 5-7k would be a "reasonable" price to both sides. If someone really wanted one 8k would be pushing its value. On the plus side it does seem to have have the OEM fiberglass. Have seen far worse cars ressurected, and it is a GTCS/HCS....

Odd it has a 67 gas cap and front seats....

That's what I wondered. At $175K, it doesn't need my tender loving care!
