Let's cut to the chase. This car has been for sale for a while. It was offered to me last August. If it was offered to me it may have been offered to others. There is a vast difference in GTO's. Some are very original and some are not. Racing History is very important. Besides the visual differences between Series 1 and Series II there is also the issue of cockpit height for taller drivers in Seris II GTO's. Many of these cars suffered incidents, Restoration, and modifications over the years. In some cases there has been outright recreation of major components as well. Some work was good some was very bad. GTO engines are very important and how original the one in any GTO is a serious issue. Chassis repair/ Chassis Stampings are very important and there are issues there as well. The bottom line is I think one should do VERY careful vetting, consult EXPERTS and do forensic analysis. None of the above is a direct comment on this specific car except for the fact that it has been for sale for a while and offered to me. Asking prices don't interest me. All that matters to me is what after very careful analysis I'm willing to offer if anything. I made many offers that weren't accepted but I've also made many offers that eventually were. Happy Hunting.
