I have a dealer price list that was from 1968 or 1969.

It's showing the 1050 priced at $939.00.

I'd say that the 1053 in 1970 would be very close to that.

if a dozen of us teamed up and made a new GT company i wonder what we could accomplish. if only the economy was better then someone might get somewhere with a new GT company.
