1969 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air IV
This GTO Judge has a number matching Ram Air IV (400 CI / 370hp 445 torque) engine. Out of the total Judge hardtops made in 1969, only 549 were equipped with the Ram Air IV engine and manual transmission. We have also seen production numbers of 239 for the RAM Air IV Judge 4 speed hardtops. The 4-speed transmission comes with a Hurst shifter and console. Equipped with stock AM radio, hood tach, power steering, power brakes, rear spoiler and working hide-away headlamp doors. The Espresso Brown body is solid and straight and looks great with the light Parchment interior. Goodyear Polyglas G70-14 tires are mounted on Rally II wheels. This is a rare and outstanding example of 'The Great One'.

History
For 1969 Pontiac introduced a new model of the GTO called 'The Judge'. The Judge name came from a comedy routine, "Here Comes the Judge", used repeatedly on the Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In TV show. The Judge originally was to be a basic low-cost GTO to make it price competitive with the Plymouth Road Runner. But during its development Pontiac decided to add standard equipment to make it the ultimate in street performance and image. The resulting package ended up being $337.02 more expensive than a standard GTO, and included the Ram Air III engine, Rally II wheels without trim rings, Hurst shifter (with a unique T-shaped handle), wider tires, various decals, and a rear spoiler. The Judge was initially offered only in Carousel Red but late in the model year a variety of other colors became available.

1968 - $29,900New
This air conditioned 1968 Pontiac GTO is fresh of a very nice frame-on restoration. It's powered by a rare numbers matching 360 horsepower 400 H.O. engine which is backed up by the original Turbo 400 transmission and Saf-T-Track rear differential. Pontiac only built 3140 400 H.O. GTOs with an automatic transmission in 1968. The entire car was media blasted prior to any metal work and retains 80% of the original sheet metal. The floor and trunk pans are original. The body wears correct Meridian Turquoise paint with a white vinyl top and a black interior. This GTO was also ordered with a hood mounted tach, hide-away headlights, ride and handling package, power steering and brakes and a groovy 8-track tape player. No expense was spared on the restoration of this rare and unique Poncho. PHS documentation and a copy of the original window sticker are included with purchase.
1970 - $34,900
Straight from Arizona is this sharp 1970 GTO Judge tribute. Purchased new in Yuma Arizona, the car still has its original interior comfort weave seats with, dash and door panels with new carpeting. Eye popping Orbit Orange paint and "The Judge" badging are brand new. Power comes from a YH coded 455 engine mated to an automatic transmission. It's equipped with factory gauges and tach, Power Steering, brakes and factory air conditioning. This car is well-documented with the original windows sticker, build sheet and Protect-O-Plate. This Goat drives like a new car with good tight steering, power brakes with front discs and the strong acceleration you would expect from a GTO. Add the visual appeal of the Judge package and you've got yourself a very sweet Poncho.
