Im trying to find any info on what a real GNX jacket is worth..I cant find anything here,in the parts for sale or ebay..I know back a few years they got over $1500 each but im not sure now..Im not selling this stuff here im just trying to get info so I can list it later for sale in the for sale section..

The guy is older and had a GNX he sold..He bought it new and these are 100% real and only wore twice and mint,from what he says..Im going there to get pics and look them over..

The sizes is large and medium..He also has a original spedometer still in the box for a GNX with 0 miles that was never hooked up but he said it was from GM as he had to give his VIN to get a spare one..Any info or links would be appreciated..

Im not in this section to sell stuff..When its listed its going to be for alot more than that from what ive found..$1500 asking price on each jacket seems fair and im still not sure about the gauge but its priceless if they dont make them and only worth what one of the the fortunate want to pay.

no offense.

but the GNX jacket is HARDLY in the same desired category as a GNX car!
desirable........ yes. but $1000 for a jacket? not for me!
you spend your $$ any way you want, but I'd NEVER spend that kind a money on a jacket.

I would think the same could be said about a Rolex watch but people spend thousands for those. its just a watch that keeps time like any other....

people also spend thousands if not hundreds of thousands on baseball cards. to me its just a little piece of paper with some guys stats on it. two each his own I guess.

A GNX jacket is unique and a collectable. in fact many people lookn to purchase a GNX want the jacket to go with it or those who have a GNX and didnt get the jacket or lost the jacket would surely want it for their collection.

its not like anyone is gonna wear it, but then again there are plenty of people that own GNX's that dont drive them at all.

I dont think anyone is placing the GNX jacket in the same category as a GNX.

I certainly would NEVER pay a $1000+ for it either but I also wouldn't spend $50-125k on a real GNX either.

Just being facetious!:tongue:


Personally i don't like the fitted "Members Only" "Michael Jackson" look NOW and i'd need a size 2xl jacket or better. (What was the largest size available?) I was in Junior High at the time and would feel nostalgic wearing one though!:p


Only 547 jackets produced also?

here is the scoop

Jackets were not numbered unless owner requested it...the GNX books where numbered however.

The tag inside the jacket says Molly designs...while the jacket does appear tome a member sonly style from years ago. The sizes run small meaning if you took a large you would probably want an extra large.

Years ago I bought up the remaining jackets from Molly and sold them for I believer $45 to $100 each.

While one may argue as to the value of a GNX jacket today personally I think anything over $500 is good money as the values of the cars are not as high as they once where.

However, on ebay you may strike at the rite time and you may get $1200 or so for the jacket.

Good luck...

Dennis your the guy for this question,I think I have the answer which is they got screwed by the dealer but heres the story...The people with these jackets have a few gnx parts and they are older and good people and im 100% sure they are not lyeing here,,here is the story..

They got GNX#082 and the dealer told them how to go about getting a jacket,they filled out some paperwork for special lettering to be put on it and they were sent these jackets below...These are not real GNX jackets,correct?

You are correct these are NOT I REPEAT not the real deal....the real GNX jacket s not shiny and is a members only style and the GNX logo appears only once on the front label style pocket flap no where else plus the tag or label by the neck says Molly Designs....

Several companies make various jackets some have GM license to do so others do not. Your rite about filling out a card but the card had to be sent to an address in California....Molly moved several times so I can't remember the exact town back then.

Jacket you pictured is probably a $50 to $75 jacket

I am sure someone can post a real jacket I have one used one I wear somewhere ....
