1969 Pontiac GTO Judge (Da Judge)
Last updated Aug 14, 2008
I purchased this gorgeous car July 4th, 1996 - at the time the speedometer JUST turned 50,000 original miles and had just been restored a couple years previous. We totally restored the exterior and interior two years ago so now it's like show-room new. It's an all numbers matching car and though we did change the rear-end gears so I could drive over 60 without the whining, we have the original if we ever sell (which is very, very doubtful).
I've been asked a few times if I'd sell for the right price - the answer at this time is always an adamant "NO". This is how I feel about this car - I put the car under wraps after our last show in early October and don't pull the cover off until late April or early May. When I pull that cover off, this car gives me the same excitement and chills I had the first time I saw it - I just can't imagine it not being there for me every spring.
In 1969 only 6,725 Judge's were produced - the first 5000 Judges were painted Carousel Red (a bright shade of orange). The set of standard options included: bucket seats, special exterior trim, trimless Rally rims, G70 rubber, a typically stiffened suspension, and trendy Hurst shifter. Standard power came from Pontiac's proven Ram Air III big block, a 400-cube screamer with 10:75:1 compression, D-port heads, and long branch, cast iron exhaust manifolds. Fed by a Rochester four-barrell carb, the Ram Air III produced 366 maximum horsepower at 5,100rpm. A three-speed manual handled those horses.
