1970 Pontiac GTO (The Judge) in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air III is GM-documented by George Zapora and is often referred to as the "Psychedelic Judge." A one-of-one, this is the Judge that was not meant to be produced. The GTO is finished in Mint Turquoise exterior over a red bucket seat interior with factory Judge decals in blue, orange and pink. The color combo on a factory WT1 Judge option was not permitted yet was somehow built by GM of Canada. The Psychedelic Judge is one of 75 GTOs Judges finished in Mint Turquoise in 1970, and Mint Turquoise GTOs were only to receive black or Sandalwood interiors, which makes this a one-of-one error. Multiple magazine articles have been written to document the car and ACME even produced a limited run of 588 diecast model copies of this GTO. The GTO is powered by a documented Ram Air Judge 400ci Ram Air III engine factory-rated at 366hp and 445 ft/lbs of torque and mated to TH400 3-speed automatic transmission with 3.55:1 posi-traction differential. The original data tag on the cowl has been decoded, and the GTO received a comprehensive frame-off restoration to factory specifications by the GTO gurus at Classic Performance. Well-optioned from new, the GTO features an upgraded Gear Vendors overdrive transmission (original parts come with the car), N41 power steering variable ratio, PMD N98 Rally II wheels, G70 Goodyear Polyglas Wide Oval GT tires, T42 hood inlet Ram Air, A1 heavy-duty battery, U25 luggage compartment, U26 under-hood lamp, U35 electric clock, U63 AM push-button radio (which was upgraded with period-correct AM/FM unit), U76 windshield antenna, U80 auxiliary rear speaker WTI Judge option, W84 additional fuel for delivery, Y92 lamps (including glove box, luggage and courtesy) and Y96 handling package. The GTO has 33,495 actual miles and has 3,100 show miles since restoration. The notoriety of this special car includes the June 2014 Northwest Regional Tiger Run in Bend, OR, First Place Best Judge; July 2016 GTO Nationals Seattle, WA, won First Place Judge; and February 2017 World of Wheels class award.
