That battery position is ludicrous to say the least. Drawing acidic gases through the radiator and into the engine compartment seems to have taken a backseat to ease of battery location on the off chance a battery will need replacement in 4 years or so.

Why oh why would folks restore an interior as it looks here and then elect to keep that 70's/80's Pep Boys steering wheel cover? The addition of one of them new OGTS steering wheels would have really driven the bidding higher.

White with red interior is a very nice look for the GT

Would need more pics. From the few pics, it looks like it could be a clean '70 driver (in original color) with a bit of work under the hood.
Could those be original red trimmed door gaskets? I love that. Smooth dash, red interior. I love that too.
...Checking wallet, Damn you casino!

That air conditioning unit is not a home made unit. I’ve actually seen that unit new and considered buying it just to check it out, but it cost too much and the guy who owned it had a communication problem with being deaf. There were several companies that built air units for these GTS, just the two were made popular

I don't recall the door pull handle being on the inside of the passengers door on the 1970 model? Am I mistaken? It also looks like the may have added extra turn signal lights on the front of the car. Not a bad idea......

The 70 GT has a door pull handle.

That's where it was on my 1970 GT.

I see what you are looking at. I'm pretty sure that is the drivers side turn signal light reflection on the bumperette, but it really does look like another set of lights. Interesting optical illusion?

I'll be going to the auction with my brother Doug and Gerri.... Roy and Doug are also expected to attend. I'll look into registering to bid.

Indeed! It is a reflection.
I may now have to brave the cold and go see if my early production (January of 1970) has the door pull. I seriously don't remember one ever being there! If the 1969's don't have them, it may explain my confusion.

Not sure about the 1969 GTs, but this is where it was on my 1970.

Let this be a lesson. If you want to sell something, put it up for auction. All you need is two people that want to buy it. Simply putting it up for sale does not create an auction environment, but if you find or create that environment, you will attract people that have a greater need to win, rather than a need to find value. I once saw two people bid up the price of a $100 bill to about $110-$112 until one of them finally gave up.
