1969 GTO At No Reserve!

Another project car that someone just isn’t going to get around to, this really solid 1969 Pontiac GTO is located in Rapid City, South Dakota and is up for sale here on eBay. Surprisingly, it’s being offered at no reserve, and bidding is only $1,225 as I write this post.


It’s a shame the seller didn’t include more pictures of this car, but just looking at what they have, the car actually looks better on close examination than it does at first glance. This is borne out by the seller telling us that the floors and trunk floor are solid as well. There are some issues, though, as the car must have been hit at some point in it’s life as the hood, nose, valence and right front fender aren’t original. On the other hand, that’s the original paint everywhere else, so there’s nothing hiding under there! The seller does note that the right hand frame horn is bent, so some straightening is in order before reassembly.

I’m actually quite shocked to see the quarter panels as solid as they are. Anyone know if they use salt in South Dakota? The fact that it still has what I think is a bias-ply tire on the original wheel tells me that it’s been off the road for a long, long time. That tire sure has a different profile than modern radials, doesn’t it?

While there are some parts missing, there is an engine included (unfortunately not the original one), and the car is a four-speed manual. I think the Liberty Blue would be a beautiful color once refinished–I think even the most enthusiastic p-word folks would agree that since there are so many non-original body panels this one needs to be repainted. What do you think? If this stays pretty low, this could be a real bargain!

    That’s a great looking car! SoDak does use salt on the highways at least, maybe not in the individual cities. I’m guessing that Rapid uses road salt on their streets.
    I wouldn’t touch the body on this one; a great find!

    A thought about reserve auctions…. Although there is no reserve, if the seller is not happy with the final bids, he may stop the auction which he has a right to do. It’s not right in my book but at least he does not have to give the car away. That happened to me once with a car I was bidding on ebay. I felt the bids were a little too low and I put a fair bid in and won, however, the seller wrote me the next day and said he had a “Change Of Heart” and was keeping the car. A month later, it was listed again with no reserve but a much higher starting price. Due to his much higher starting bid, the second auction ended with 0 bids. What a dope he was. Lesson learned on both sides I guess. In this case, I would think this GTO will bid alot higher than it’s current 2000 something bid price.
