REAL-DEAL GTO JUDGE, PERIOD 400 RAM AIR III, AUTO, FACTORY A/C, PS/PB, PHS DOCS!
Cars with pedigrees get us excited here at Streetside Classics. There are some cars where matching numbers are no big deal, but when you're talking about a real-deal 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge loaded with options, well, that gets more than a few hearts racing. That kind of pedigree also pretty much ensures that this car will always be in demand, and you can pick this one up for a reasonable price, invest in it, and come out way ahead later.
Black on black is this car's original color combination, and when was the last time you saw a black Judge? It's incredibly rare for that reason alone. The paint is just OK, which is where you can invest to take it up a notch, but even if you just want a driver, this car won't look bad at the local cruise night. Please take a few extra moments to notice the little things like panel gaps that are very good, and nothing looks cooler than that big wing out back. The Endura front bumper is where most of the issues lie, and that shouldn't be a surprise, but the urethane itself is in good condition and won't be hard to restore. The graphics are correct and just pop off the black paint and the twin snorkels on the hood for the Ram Air system work as advertised. And yes, that's a hood-mounted tach, one of the coolest options ever.
Nice black interior upholstery keeps up the factory look, and it's complete with bucket seats and a center console. Pontiac interiors were some of the most functional places to be during the muscle car era, but it's also a little upscale with a woodgrained wheel and matching wooden shifter knob. The GTO Judge was an interesting mix of performance and luxury aspirations, so there's woodgrain on the dash and console right alongside the engine-turned panels that were a staple of Pontiac performance for many years. This Goat is also loaded with options, including factory A/C, tilt steering column, 8-track player, and a rather rare remote trunk opener. Black carpets are protected by Pontiac-logo rubber floor mats, the door panels are neatly trimmed, and the headliner is taut and wrinkle-free. The trunk is correct as well, featuring a reproduction mat and a correct spare tire assembly with jack.
We're not positive whether the 400 cubic inch Ram Air III V8 is the car's original, numbers-matching engine, but it is correct. The engine is, of course, unmodified, from the correct Ram Air air cleaner to the Pontiac Turquoise paint to the shiny chrome valve covers. Reproduction tower hose clamps, a new foam gasket for the air cleaner, and correct decals are the kinds of little things that really help when you're looking for quality, and the sucker runs beautifully with a big hit of low-end torque. It's equally tidy underneath, with a reproduction exhaust system, nice floors, a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission, and a proper 10-bolt rear with a Saf-T-Track limited slip inside. Correct Rally II wheels are fitted sans trim rings, as original, and wear recent BFGoodrich T/A radials that ride and handle great.
This is one of those cars that you can't believe still exists outside of captivity. This is your opportunity to own a highly optioned, documented, and incredibly desirable GTO Judge at a very reasonable price. Don't hesitate, call today!
