For Sale: 1970 Pontiac LeMans in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

If you're going to build a tribute car, why not build the most iconic muscle car of all time: the Pontiac GTO Judge. By taking a 1970 Lemans hardtop and giving it a burly 400 cubic inch V8, iconic Judge colors and graphics, and a host of choice options, this car is instantly transformed into the must-have muscle car from the peak of the era.

We love tribute cars simply because they're guilt-free ways to have some fun and most folks will never know the difference. This Carousel Red GTO Judge tribute will certainly generate a lot of attention at shows (and on the street, for that matter) and with that in mind, they really paid attention to the little stuff. During the makeover, getting the bodywork straight was a priority, so it looks very good today. The finish looks to be exactly the right color, and although it's a driver it's still deep and glossy - the perfect background for the Judge stripes and logos. And if you want accuracy, check out the Ram Air hood, the hood-mounted tachometer, the color-matched urethane bumpers, and the big wing out back, all of which add to the Judge's performance look. It's also got a GTO badge in the correct spot in the grille, those cool Pontiac performance fog lights, and a black vinyl top that makes this clone look more like a grown-up. There's also enough stainless trim to keep it from being orange overload, including the off-setting rocker panel trim. You won't be sneaking around in this Poncho!

Looking at the all-black interior, it's hard to believe this isn't the genuine article. Thanks to careful maintenance and excellent workmanship, the bucket seats still look very nice and remain supportive enough for long-distance driving, showing only minor signs of use. There's also a center console with a factory 'His-and-Hers' shifter sticking out of it, perfect for the GTO performance vibe and the original dash is in great shape with exciting new digital gauges (plus a hood tach!) that keep an eye on the 400 V8. That three-spoke steering wheel is similar to the original, but the smaller diameter and fatter wooden rim give it away, although we don't think anyone will complain. The plush black carpets were recently replaced, the headliner is taught, door panels are GTO-spec and very tidy, while out back the trunk is nicely finished with a black mat and a full-sized spare.

The engine is a 400 cubic inch V8, that's running great and is perfectly suited for the Judge's personality. Up top there's an aluminum intake manifold and 4-barrel carburetor and the internals feel very performance oriented, so it's a great runner up and down the throttle. It looks very clean under the hood with M/T valve covers, an original-style Ram Air air cleaner, and Pontiac Turquoise paint on the block itself, and it's fitted with desirable upgrades like power steering and power front disc brakes, making it simple to drive. The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission was recently rebuilt and snaps through the gears smoothly and competently and with Flowmaster mufflers, you'll relish the soundtrack at every shift. The undercarriage is in good order and US Mag 'Old Style' wheels give this Judge tribute just the right look, especially with staggered 245/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear Mickey Thompson radials.

A very nicely done tribute car that gets all the major things exactly right: high impact visuals, a burly V8, great options, and a reasonable price. Isn't that what muscle cars were all about? Call today!
