I have a fun project for someone. '72 GT that needs a lil work. It needs paint, body work at the rear, some electrical and probably a brake master cylinder. Interior is decent. Head has big valves and a minor league performance cam. Comes with an exhaust

header. Also comes with a replacement rear panel. Tires have 0 miles. Not a rusty car.. I found one penny sized rust underneath.. You also get some R12 with your purchase!!
$5000 OBO. Located in Ft Worth Tx. Clear Tx title in my name.

The biggest issue I see with that car is the crunched tail panel. I think your CL ad indicates you have a replacement tail panel. Do you also have the trim piece that goes on.
Do you know the history of that repair? Or was it already that way when you bought the car?

Wish you all the luck with the sale.

The tail lights need to be replace, not a huge project by any means. It appears that the tail lights were taken off of a 73 GT or a manta. Either way they will have to be replaced. Other than that it looks pretty good. $5000.00 might be a little optimistic

I have a rear panel and it is included. It was hit before I bought it.

Very desirable GT in nice, overall condition. If I were in the market for a GT, this would be the one to have, with the best exterior color and the rare air conditioning. Best of all, minimal rust. 5000 is more than fair. Good luck with your sale!

I was thinking exactly the same. You forgot to mention that this very strongly looks like the original paint.

It's 5000 obo. I'm lowering the price until it leaves. I have a rear trim strip for it now.

Is that an original US car, or was it imported? The reason I'm asking is because I see it doesn't have side markers on the rear. European GT's don't have them IIRC. I'm guessing most likely they were removed and filled in, though.
Looks like a really fun project!
