1966 K_GT on ebay
« on: February 10, 2017, 11:18:44 AM »
Does anyone here know this car?  Ivy Green 1966 K-Code GT convertible for sale in Scottsdale. This is the second time in a few months that it has been for sale.  The photos show a really nice car, not perfect but no flaws that would be show stoppers, at least from the photos.  I was wondering if anyone here knew of this car or its history. Thanks

This car bounced around for a few years in the mid 1980's in the northeast. The car showed typical wear and tear at the time and tell tale signs of pending rust issues associated with cars from that area. 

It popped up again some time later with a few missing parts and the same, albeit more pronounced rust issues in Maryland.

It started the auction circuit soon thereafter with a new color and little else :

It flipped again here:

Aside from some obvious incorrect parts from the latest photos, it appears to have been at least refreshed and returned to its correct hue. As always, it's always best to inspect in person to see what the current condition really is.

If someone wants me to go look at it I can if they are seriously considering it.

No! No! No!
All this car has going for it is that it is a convertible and has a "K" in the VIN. Everything else is suspect (distributor, fuel pump to name a few).

Given it is a Metuchen built car I would want to see the buck tag to help establish it is a factory GT.  There is a photo from the drivers side of the car looking down at the engine where you can see the buck tag on the driver's side near the hood hinge (odd placement in my experience).  I agree that the engine would need to be thoroughly evaluated to ensure it is actually a K code and if it is determined to be a K code that the engine matches the car (there a lot of visual cue red flags on the engine that have already been mentioned that would warrant a close evaluation of this car).

Regards,

Ron

That was where my January 66 buck tag was located: on the driver's side fender top near the hood hinge.

Thanks Midlife - learned something new today.  I concentrate more on 65's. I didn't realize that's a known location for a 66 buck tag.  Thanks!

My Oct 65 Metuchen car has the buck tag on the passenger side. I recall there was a buck tag thread last year and forget if there was a change to driver side at one point or if it was random

The car did not sell.  The high bid was $38 but the reserve was $69.
