    I remain optimistic they can do better than low $20s if they look as good or better in person, as the pictures suggest - hopefully at least around $30. It may take awhile however.

    I thank you all for your input. There is no way I would sell these cars for that cheep. My dad has all but that in parts. The pictures don't do them justice. If you know what I mean. I just cant imagine selling them for less than 35

    I think $20,000 is way too low a price, but they would sell in no time.
    Around $30,000 to $35,000 I believe they will sell, but might take longer to find the right buyer.
    Above that, I think it will take a longer time to sell them.
    The problem is that not that many people know what a 1967 GTX is, and there are not as many people looking for one. Take into comparison, a Mustang or Camaro most of which are not rare cars, but more people know about them and are looking for them.

    I, unfortunately agree. I probably have around $30k in my 67 and it could use better paint and a few interior pieces. I would like to sell it to look for a Hemi Satellite but I know I would be doing good to get anything over $20k for it.

    I could not agree with post #9 more. Take them to Carlisle. A great event with lots of qualified buyers. Good luck with them!

      I hope the OP doesn't take offense to this, but this is the same situation we see time and time again.

      Cost and value are NOT necessarily the same thing.

      Fist it was said that they "need the money", then it was said "we just can't sell them that low" -referring to the value that was established using recent sale and no sale asking prices.

      If you truly want to move them, price them accordingly.

      I like this site for general (with exceptions) pricing info, and it does say 37K for a #2 car, however, by the OP info, they are basically nice drivers.

      http://www.collectorcarmarket.com/collector-car/prices/1967-plymouth-gtx-value.html

      I think the consensus is that a #1 basically does not exist outside of the "trailered only to judged shows with 100% original restored to stock and near perfect quality, and consistently judged in the 90+ point category", or thereabouts.

      With that in mind, the OP has priced them at what amounts to full retail.

      If you maintain a "near concours" asking price, you will be holding them for a long, long time and they will become "stale" to the intended market.

      The "trick" is finding a realistic price that will move them.

      I would personally try the 27-32 range, say ask 32 and be prepared to take as low as 27.

        Yeah, unfortunately the market is just not there and the 66-67 years don't bring the money (respect) the post 68 models do. As a 67 owner I watch the market pretty regularly and unfortunately they have come down in price over the past year. Personally I hope it has bottomed out, but if it hasn't it's not a huge deal to me as I own mine to drive and enjoy, not so much as an investment.

        I agree with @69L48Z27 that you need to fire your marketing department. I think you might be able to get in the upper $20s to low $30s, but you really need to get the car looking good, detailed, and some great photography. They do look like nice cars overall, and if the quality is there it will show, but trying to sell something for top dollar yet presenting it in a "yard sale priced" environment does not help. If you can't do that, and you need to move it fast, then you will have to adjust your expectations and price it accordingly in order to get a buyer.

        This is a depressing example. My car has some pluses and minuses on this one - mine presents better but isn't really restored, all rebuilt with factory air, but 68 motor, had a few minor rust repairs made, 10 ft paint, restored aluminum, bumpers, dash, ton of receipts, etc. If he can't get $22k for that car I probably can't get into the $20s on mine.

        I can empathize. Mine is in the same boat. Real R/T, really nice driver quality and great 5 footer, ton's of receipts as well, but has a '66 383.

        67's just don't get any respect.
