Re: WTB 1988 Notchback, digital dash, 5.7

The first ad states there was 1200 GTA Notchbacks. That figure is incorrect. That's the first time I've heard such a figure. There was actually 718 built in 1988 according to Pontiac. That someone states 1200 just appears to me to be a made up number.

The second ad states figures about equipment. Frankie and I have discussed this before and don't believe there is such known information to conclude what that 2nd ad is stating as they are quoting some website that appears to be making up some numbers, too! There is no known information that has (accurately) concluded how many came with the 350, digital dash, etc., for the Notchback.

I have one, black on black, digidash, and modded 350, but nowhere near the condition you're after.

Re: WTB 1988 Notchback, digital dash, 5.7

Merc can you please send me some pics and more info? Yeah that Texas car owner is asking for a bit too much. I am hoping I will get more replies after the weekend. Thanks guys!
On the other note, ppl posting "big block" and other misinformation in their ads... That's pretty common and does not scare me. I have two thirdgen Camaros, both of which I rebuilt almost completely. I am a little familiar with the thirdgens. I really want a notch back, just don't have time for a rebuild. That's why asking for a one in better condition. Thanks again for the help.

Still looking. I have seen a perfect one for sale a few years ago. It was grey/silver... I tried emailing the owner but got no response. If anyone interested in selling their notchback with digital dash please email me with pics info to kallark@gmail.com Had to sell my Camaro to someone who made me a very generous offer. Need a new toy.

I was there before.. I had cash in hand and had talked with a guy in ND that had the nicest 5.7 1989 with T-tops and black with gold. 40K on the clock which was low enuf for me. I was ready to buy and couldnt get a hold of him. Waited about a month and bought the one I have now. Got an email from him within the week. I made the right choice due to location and logistics but depressed him. I could have saved a few 1000 with him too as I knew he was willing to bargain. Oh well. I am very glad to have a low mile 5-speed.

I guess there is a right time for everything... I'll wait. I am sure there is a nice notchback somewhere out there for me ;-)

Re: WTB 1988 Notchback, digital dash, 5.7

car has 136K miles. which is more than I wanted. Guy wants $6500 for it. What do you guys think is a fair price? I was willing to pay more but for a car with lower miles... Not sure what to do.

Keep looking.

Get what you want and be happy, you'll smile each time you see it sitting in the garage.

Good luck.

Re: WTB 1988 Notchback, digital dash, 5.7

It sounds like it needs some serious work done. At this point I would consider a car like that, but it is too far away. I am in New York and the car is on the west coast. Thank you very much for the link.

Re: WTB 1988 Notchback, digital dash, 5.7

I waited and I found it!!! Low mileage, notchback with digital dash and 5.7 and TTops! It has the C&C Ttop conversion! How rare is that Notch and C&C ttops? I am wandering if I actually found a unique car :-)
