The reality is, the best price will be paid by a collector. At the current price of a '69 330 regular players have lots of better options. The real question is, will the OP continue to ride and enjoy the bike after their century goal is achieved. If so it may be worth it. If he is not sure, perhaps a significantly cheaper bike that fits properly would be a better choice. Once the Gibson is gone it is gone, and its value is only going to go up in the future.
