GTO Judge Tribute
Text Coming Soon
The 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge was one of the most potent muscle cars of the era, and surely one of the most outrageous in terms of styling. With bright colors, stripes, and a rear wing, it gave the Judge a unique look that was backed by equally stunning performance. But with prices for real Judges running deep into six figures, it's no surprise that guys are building clean tributes like to feed their Judge addiction.
If you're going to build the ultimate 1970 Judge, you may as well go all-out and use Orbit Orange, which was a Judge trademark. It's not quite yellow, not quite orange, but a hue somewhere in-between that looks absolutely awesome on the GTO's aggressively styled ragtop bodywork. Everything is smooth and slick, with a lot of time invested in getting it all smooth and shiny, and thanks to modern paint technology, the color probably pops a lot more than it did in 1970s. Pontiac's revolutionary Endura bumper gives the front of the GTO a unique look with their traditional split grille, and when combined with black headlight openings and Ram Air vents on the hood, this car definitely looks aggressive. With the special Judge graphics, sandwich board wing out back, and quad exhaust tips, there's no question who you're messing with here.
A black bucket seat interior with console works perfectly with the Orbit Orange bodywork, pegging the aggression meter while still keeping the luxury and comfort for which Pontiac had become justifiably famous. Recent seat covers and door panels, along with a reproduction set of carpets that match the originals give it a fresh appearance, and it remains in very good condition. The dash offers three deeply recessed instrument binnacles, but there's no tach, which is mounted out front on the hood, which is possibly the coolest GTO option ever. Other perks include factory A/C, the original AM radio in the engine-turned dash, and unusual power windows. Overhead, a black power convertible top matches the interior, but if you're using this one correctly, you'll never see it-keep the top down and cruise!
Performance is effortless thanks to Pontiac's muscular 400 cubic inch V8, which specializes in torque production. From the Ram Air air cleaner to the Pontiac Turquoise paint on the block, this one has been detailed correctly, and the condition of all the underhood components suggests that the work is not only high-quality, but recently done. Power steering and power disc brakes are included, and there's a tough TH400 3-speed automatic transmission behind the engine handling gear swaps. The floors are nicely finished with satin black paint, not undercoating, so there's nothing to hide, and both the gas tank and exhaust system are brand new. It rolls on correct Pontiac Rally II wheels and fat 255/60/15 Goodyear Eagle radials.
Tribute cars are all about recapturing lost opportunities, and if a Judge wasn't in your garage in 1970, don't worry, you've got a second chance here. Call today!
