Default What's it worth? - '65 tripower

A '65 GTO(preferably tripower/4 speed) has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember and when I came across this fairly complete tripower a short time ago, it seemed "meant to be". However, some things have come up just within the last few days that have got me into the mindset of trying to sell everything that I don't have an immediate use for.
So, I'm wondering, what this may be worth. Intake is 9778818, which should be a '65. Only one carb has the little tag on it. My picture didn't come out as well as I had hoped, but I think it says "7025179".
I know what I think it is worth. But, I'm trying to get an idea of what may be deemed fair in this market.
Thanks

I would put down a list on missing parts, parts needs replaced cost for these and some restoration labor, compare this with a correctly restored unit.
Then i would have a fair price for yours.

Appears to have correct carbs. As it is pictured, should be about $800 plus shipping.

Restoration will require media blasting & painting the manifold, fuel lines, new choke tubes, PCV "F" fitting, and throttle cable bracket (unless the one in the picture can be repaired).. Restoration of carbs & linkage will be about $750. Will be a nice setup when completed.

If everything you have is ALL correct #'s parts, you could do better breaking down and selling separately.

I would be interested in some things myself.

I thought about that also. But, I'll be honest, when something like this is(more or less) complete it tears me up to piece it out. Not saying I haven't done it. Just saying it is usually a last resort for me.

I actually know a few vendors that do that and say they do better than selling it whole.

I don't have the heart to do that. I'll just sit on them until the values go up.

Thanks for the input guys. The number that Dick Boneske gave is close to what I was thinking(I was going to list it for $900).

What specific areas are you wanting to see? It may be a couple days for me to get more pictures(things are kind of crazy here at the moment).

Looks like it has a '66 water neck. It's facing the wrong way for a '65, where the upper rad hose is on the passenger side top tank of the rad.

Could be. The guy I got it from had it on a Lemans 45ish years ago. Don't remember what year he said.

Here are a few more pics. Sorry, I didn't add them sooner. It was supposed to have been sold twice and at the last minute the people texted and said they couldn't make it.

Sorry if the pics aren't the best. I took them with my phone.
