Question. Realistically, what is the going rate for a set of decent used GT tail light assemblies?

Thanks in advance.

I've seen OEM, non-used lenses go for $1,100 on Ebay.

Used with delamination, $400 on up.
Used with no delamination, $600 on up.

I would say that if you can restore your GT tailights with repro lenses for $400/ pr original pairs in excellent -LN shape should bring a bit more. Before Goodyear's repros came about, these lights were going for up to $1000 per pair but now that you can fix your own the price has dropped.
As for the price of these lights, you can buy a new custom taillight panel, with lenses for less. I tired of the old fashioned 80's look so I chose that solution on both my fastback and notchback.

On the GT, the Pontiac lights up as soon as the key is in the "on" position.....not the "acc" position. It stays on until you turn the key to the off position.

In other words, it's always on when you drive the vehicle.
