This one is local to me. Relatively solid project car. Original 440 4 speed 3.54 dana track pack air grabber car. It has a non running 383 auto and a 8 3/4 in it now. Has original fender tag, no broadcast sheet. Trunk and floors need replaced and driver 1/4. The rest of the metal looks useable. Console, 8 track, disc brake, power steering car too. R6 red with black top and interior. It would be a beauty done, wiw?

I would say $15-18, that car would be incredible done. If you didn’t want to go 100% restoration it would be a great candidate for a Hemi or stroker setup. Looks like a decent specimen unless completely rotted out when seen in person.

I would ask the question of ,what do you see it worth done? Most of the hard to get parts are missing with all their little details. All that cost $$$ & then has to be redone or sourced. For what resto`s cost ,is it worth it to you ? Are you doing it all yourself?, thats a different outlook for sure but , lots of time is involved to do this right. Yes it could be a cool car again for somebody. Lately I`m seeing project cars going for far more than their worth when you compare it to something you can buy & drive. Example-68-70 chargers. Just a thought for you.

I agree on the price guess, Its worth 18K, there are not many 4-speed X converts out there. they were scarce even when new, It would not be a candidate for a hemi or a stroker IMO. that car should be restored correctly . rare car that is a desirable color. but its gonna cost allot, bezels, finish panel and lots of trim equal big $$$

Ive looked at the ad for that car several times. IMO its decent , make a nice local cruise in / driver. And I think its probably about $10K to high. give or take a few dollars.

There was a pale yellow with tan interior one for sale recently as well, Car kept getting listed over and over. Its not on there right now, so maybe it sold,,,maybe not .( I dont remember if it was auto or 4 spd though )




To the right buyer I could see this R6 car bring more than 18K. At anything around the 15k range this car would most likely be gone quick

Like mentioned ,,,missing the numbers drivetrain will hurt it. BUT,,,, there are only so many 4 spd GTX verts made so ones options are limited to the guys wanting one.

Ive had SEVERAL 1969 GTXs , with 2 of them being convertibles.( one 4 spd and one auto ) And can tell you first hand the trim is tough to find. especially the tail end stuff . trust me
The finish panel and tail light bezels were being reproduced,,,but not sure if they still are. They were nice, but not perfect . If one decides to go NOS, those 3 pieces will put a SERIOUS dent on the piggy bank.

If you want NOS trim good luck finding that, yes the tail end trim is very tough to find NOS. it you cannot find NOS better off having used restored, the right people can make it right (2 places in CA can do this, the repo stuff is nice but is a hair wider, I can tell the def, I know I am a geek) the repo finish panel and rear TL bezels are not really that nice IM0) There is a place that restores them and they are even better then NOS, but you pay, $2300 for the finish panel and $1800 for the TL bezels, I know of a pair of NOS TL bezels for sale at 3K, I don't think they have sold. anyhow its a heck of a car that deserves to be restored with correct high quality parts. and now that I think more about it that car should go for no less then 20K, its rare, great color with good options.

That car won’t bring the numbers mentioned here. Those days are over and won’t be back for quite some time. Sellers might as well pack it in if they aren’t in need of cash and If they do, better take any offer if they get one.

The damage from all this is just getting going. When was the last time we had this many businesses closed? Pro sports closed? Yep. It’s a hole of unthinkable proportions. So 15-20k for a non running hobby car that needs metal replaced, Uh no. Not happening.


Forever in debt to your priceless advice...

The seller totally whored out the car by selling the entire drive train , C'mon, a dead 383 and column shifted auto with an 8 3/4 rear in place of the good stuff. It's not even worth 10k when it needs about 50k more to even try to make it right,which it will never be.

Like I said in a previous post & others as well. ITS NOT WORTH IT! At one time this was a cool car sure but, that time has passed . It needs too much $$$ parts & pieces aside from your normal restoration of the sheetmetal etc. I have to admit, The 69 GTX was never a big hit back in the day. That`s why they are scarce to begin with. So When you have a 100 people in the room that want a 69 doge or plymouth B body muscle car which one do you think they will go to 1st & LAST. just a thought. I`ve been into this for 35 years,this is what I`ve learned over that time. I`m sure someone will get it that wants it for themselves & eventually do it and tha`ts great! That`s what this hobby is supposed to be about !

I have always liked these four speed GTX's and this was a great one. I've never understood why they aren't worth more $ being a manual transmission dana rear and convertible but they just are not. Unfortunately I don't think you could come out of this one being into it for what it would be worth even if it was free.

Sure if it had the 440, 4speed, and Dana 60. Without them and its condition I would not spend a dime over 5k. Do the math for whats there and you are in the hole.

As an outside observer, worth way more than $5K and less than $19K. Too much missing for the big dollar sale. Awesome car and by no means a bad resto project but the purchase of the needed parts will be painful.
