Indeed. I wonder what day it goes up for sale? Did you notice the write-up on this car?



"For sale at auction: Lot #429 - Frame-on restoration of a Pontiac GTO convertible with original Build Sheet and lots of documentation. Straight body with very nice paint. Blue exterior with white interior and white top. Upgraded with 455cid HO V8 and Judge decals, automatic transmission, air conditioning and gauges. New convertible top. Runs and drives great."



The VIN says it is a true GTO and this was the last year of the GTO convertible. Only 678 regular GTO convertibles were built and 17 more Judge convertibles were built. So unmolested, this car was still one of less than 600 built with the original 400 c.i. engine. Adding the 455 H.O. and Judge decals would make this car much more desirable in some sense, but it is a not a true Judge or 455 H.O. car, so this will hurt the cars ultimately value somewhat since these are not original to the car. Neat looking car all the same, and still very desirable. I would be surprised if it hit $100k though since it is not all numbers matching.

It is a bit of a poser with the added options, but, like you say Frosty, it is a real '71 GTO convertible. I say it will fetch somewhere in the $40K to $65K range. We need to figure out which night it will be auctioned.
