LASER STRAIGHT, AWESOME PAINT, FRESHLY REBUILT 455, SUPER NICE, WELL RESTORED!
There are two kinds of people of there. The ones who will spend a small fortune on one of the original 3,629 GTO Judge coupes built in 1970. Then there are those who will save thousands buying a car that has been expectedly crafted AND is exceptionally more powerful. This 1970 Pontiac LeMans GTO Judge tribute is for the latter.
If you like Chevys, you call this paint Hugger Orange; but if you're a Pontiac person, you know this is Carousel Red. It is one of the most iconic colors from the GM pallet, and it is exactly how you want a Judge to look. Of course it doesn't hurt that its awesome gloss is courtesy of a recent professional respray on a super-straight body. But getting a GTO right takes more than just the perfect paint. The stylish and dent-resistant Endura front end was exclusive to the GTO and not shared with any other mid-size Pontiacs in 1970. The Ram Air VI dual hood scoop is another unmistakable icon of this muscle car. When showing up or showing off, enthusiasts know The Judge is much more than just getting the highly stylized decals accurate on the fender and the trunk. This package was about adding more street-smart aggression, so you need extras like the sunrise-style side stripes and the big rear spoiler.
Inside you start seeing the right details even in the little places like the GTO badging on the door, knob-style AM/FM radio, and the correct Pontiac steering wheel. Then you sit down and see that everything from the carpeting to the new seat covers have a nice deep and fresh black appearance. It's now that you start to realize how thorough this coupe's restoration/transformation has been. The center console gives your elbow the perfect resting spot when your hand is on the Turbo Action SCS shifter. Just ahead of that is a full set of SunPro auxiliary gauges, but your favorite readout will be the big tach that was installed in the dash. All this info about the motor tells you there's a lot going on in the engine bay.
There's no replacement for displacement. In 1970 the top motor in a GTO was the optional 455 cubic-inch V8. This one takes that size and was rebuilt with a .030 bored over kit only 500 miles ago. Plus, the improvements don't stop there. Other performance upgrades include a new Eagle crank, roller rockers, larger cam, #96 heads, high torque starter, new water pump, four core aluminum radiator, MSD ignition, and a new HP Holley fuel pump. This motor inhales nicely through a Holley 750 double-pumper four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performer RPM intake. It exhales with authority through Hooker headers on their way to a dual exhaust. So the rumble this car makes alone will have people in awe of this tribute GTO. Just to make sure it can back up it's performance on the streets, the TH400 three-speed automatic has a B&M 2,400 stall converter installed. But if all you want to do is drive this Pontiac around town intimidating others, it's the perfect cruiser with power steering, front disc brakes, and aggressive Ridler wheels wearing modern street tires.
There has been a lot of time, effort, and money that has gone into making this Pontiac coupe a worthy GTO Judge tribute (and we've got plenty of restoration receipts to prove it.) This one looks so good that it's up to you to decide if you want to tell others how much you saved. Call today!!!
