As the proud owner of the 1968 GTO, I would be wrong not to single out this 1969 GTO judge as a special vehicle put up for auction on Bring a trailer that is like Car and driver, is part of Hearst Autos. Judge – Fr. a special example of butter-bark from the late 60s. Just like the current owner of this 1969 GTO judge, I also got my own from my father, who spent summers in college, working in a factory in Pontiac, doing various jobs. One summer he worked in a foundry with a shovel of molding sand, one summer at a conveyor plant on a chassis conveyor, and last summer he worked on the finish, adjusting the headlights and preparing for shipment. It seems quite appropriate that one day he found himself in the GTO.
This GTO judge is now in California; however, it was originally delivered to a dealership in Anchorage, Alaska. This car comes with a clean title, but more importantly, it comes with Pontiac Historic Services documentation that shows that it is indeed a true judge. This car has been treated in the color of the Carousel Red and has an optional Judge package that includes a black grille, a wing mounted on the deck, tricolor graphics and the “Judge” emblem on the front fenders.
The replaceable 400-cubic-foot Ram Air V-8 features a four-way carburetor and electric ignition. In addition to the V-8 and Muncie M20 transmissions, it has a tachometer mounted on the hood, power steering, 15-inch Cragar S / S wheels, electrically operated front brakes, retractable headlight covers and a Hurst T-handle shift switch. The Hurst switch was factory-fitted to the manual transmissions in the Pontiac GTO. Pontiac also offered a switch with a double gate, unfortunately named it and hers, which allowed it to be switched manually for drag racing or standard automatic function.
Optional equipment of this GTO Judge includes Endura front bumper body color, chrome rear bumper, polished rocker arm and wheel trim, hood-mounted hoods and a dual outlet outlet under the rear bumper. Like any favorite classic car, this one has a couple of dents, a little rust and some chipped paint, scratches and stains. The cabin has bucket seats and a rear bench upholstered in black vinyl, as well as a matching dashboard and faux wood accent. The door locks don’t work on this car, a similar problem I have with mine and, as I was told at my local classic car shop, a common problem with the GTO.
The judge had to not only help with GTO sales, but also become a direct competitor Plymouth Road Runner. In mid-1971 the judge was terminated, although the GTO continued to run until 1974. While owning any American butter car is a privilege, a judge will definitely be a goat to be proud of. The auction online until Sunday, April 24th.
