REAL GTO, PHS DOCUMENTED, PONTIAC 400 V8, JUDGE TRIBUTE CAR, RUNS GREAT!
If you're going to build a tribute to one of the most outrageous muscle cars of all time, there's just no need to be subtle. This 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge tribute is living proof, not-so-politely suggesting that you go big or go home with its bright Orbit Orange paint, vivid graphics, and outrageous 2-tone interior. The burly 400 inch V8 almost seems understated by comparison. Almost.
How can you not love a car that looks like this? With the "Judge" name coming from TV's "Laugh-In" and all its flower-powered weirdness, it only seems fitting that the most ferocious Pontiac should take no prisoners in the cosmetics department. Of course, things like the beautifully designed Endura front end with its split grille, the long, graceful fender flares, and a serious wing out back all add up to one of the best-looking Ponchos of the era, regardless of how it's dressed. Orbit Orange is closer to yellow than orange, and it was nicely done to driver levels, which is this car's primary function. It dispenses with the need for pedigrees and numbers by simply being its outrageous self, and therefore takes a few liberties with the design. Check out the chrome air scoops on the hood, the color-matched GTO emblem in the grille, and the satin black hood tach, which is still the coolest gauge ever devised. The chrome rear bumper looks good, and despite its shiny surface, it's almost the most subtle part on the car!
The interior is pretty far from subtle, but is a nice change to the million black interior cars we see every day. The seats are the original buckets and they obviously went to great lengths to duplicate the OEM look with the patterns and piping. Inside you'll find a comfortable, functional muscle car interior that's ready to rock. A smaller Grant steering wheel looks almost like it was borrowed from a later Trans Am model and the engine –turned appliques on the dash are a Pontiac trademark that endured for years. The original gauges cover speed and fuel level, so a trio of auxiliary gauges in their own shiny metal panel were installed just ahead of the console. An AM/FM stereo with trunk-mounted CD changer sounds great over the sound of the mighty 400, and yes, this car does have factory air. And speaking of the trunk, there are no surprises in store for you there, as this car is much nicer than its price would suggest.
A real-deal Pontiac 400 cubic inch V8 was stuffed between the fenders and dressed in chrome. Edelbrock supplied the intake manifold and carburetor, as well as some of the flashier parts, and there's an MSD ignition to light the fires. Power steering and disc brakes were welcome additions to the Judge's equipment list and a stout TH400 3-speed automatic is a ready, willing, and able partner for cruising or racing. Long-tube headers and a snarling Flowmaster exhaust system combine to provide an awesome soundtrack, and color-matched PMD Rally II wheels add that special finishing touch that suits this flashy car just fine.
Complete with PMD documentation, this Judge tribute does what every Judge was meant to do: attract attention. If you're up to it, this Poncho is ready to rock. Call today!
