1970 Pontiac GTO Hardtop With a restoration performed from 2013 to 2015 and retaining much of its original sheet metal, we present for consignment a beautiful 1970 GTO dressed in Judge livery. Restored, but not so much to make this a trailer queen, resprayed in a color change to retina searing Orbit Orange, dressed with GTO Judge striping and spoiler, sporting color change to black interior color, with a non original but nonetheless powerful V8 and 4 speed manual transmission, this car was made to be enjoyed, I know I thoroughly enjoyed my time behind the wheel. Exterior For 1970 GM tweaked the GTOs design with a number of detail changes and subtle refinements. At the front of the car, Pontiacs installed smaller twin grilles with chrome trimmed quad headlamps at the edges of the iconic Endura bumper. Below that bumper, the cars front valance features revised and more aggressive square parking lights, and above that bumper, a sculpted hood with Pontiacs legendary twin nostril Ram Air air intakes and a hood mounted tachometer are present and accounted for. Behind those intakes, the windshield glass is bordered by an attractive layer of bright stainless trim and correct chrome mirrors on either door. Below that mirror and bathed in a color change respray of Orbit Orange, aggressive fenders and body lines are highlighted by dent-free stainless wheel well trim, straight stainless rocker moldings and traditional chrome door handles. The gaps are nicely minded throughout the body and some inclusions and flaws are seen in the paint, they are particularly noticeable on the horizontal surfaces, but also appear on the doors as well. A huge bonus to note is the lack of cracking in the Endura front bumper. On the back fenders, 68-era arrowhead marker lights have been exchanged for wrap-around tail lights and at the back of the car, a chrome bumper hangs proudly with new for 1970 tail lights between quad exhaust tips. Never overlooked are The Judge decal callouts in white on the front fenders and the trunk lid, so you dont forget who youre about to mess with. 15-inch Pontiac Rally II wheels are on all 4 corners and give the right vibe. Interior Take a look inside this A-Bodys cockpit and youll find a snazzy black interior. Front and center a straight and crack-free dash wears a wood applique around the original gauges with an engine turned aluminum panel at the bottom. On the floor, a Hurst shifter in the original center console sits between the two bucket front seats. The seating, both front buckets and rear bench, show very nicely with not a mar or spot of wear to be seen. At the sides of those seats, stainless-trimmed door panels hang red-inlaid GTO emblems above the original hardware and armrests. Below those panels, very clean black carpet frames chrome-trimmed foot pedals. In front of the driver, what appears to be an original Pontiac 3 spoke formula steering wheel with its Pontiac arrowhead in the center now has a leatherette wrap installed around the perimeter. Behind the passengers, the trunk is finished with a red oxide paint and has a correct liner mat and full sized spare tire. Drivetrain A non original 1978 400ci V8, (casting # 481988 and stamping coded X7), steel blue painted block topped with casting number 12 Ram Air III cylinder heads rests between the fenders. An non original, circa 1967 Muncie M20 4-speed manual is behind the mill and sends power back is a 10-bolt 3.55 conventional rear axle with a 1968 casting date. This engine presents nicely in a fully restored engine bay and has some extra bling from the factory in the form of chrome valve covers and a functional Ram Air air cleaner assembly. Undercarriage Give this car a lift and we are met with independent coil spring front suspension and 4-link ad coil spring rear suspension. Power disc brakes are up front and in the back we see power drums help bring the car to a halt and dual exhaust with stock style mufflers snakes its way from the mill back. All of this is supported by a strong steel frame with hardly a hint of surface rust and patina. The rest of the undercarriage is a mix of factory undercoating, very slight patina, and black paint. Drive-Ability She fired right up, and as I put my foot into it the 400 cubes spring to life. On our well hidden test track I experienced wonderful acceleration, smooth shifting and nice steering input from the power steering. Braking was solid and all functions were working just dandy and the only flaw I could note is a slightly loose lid on the console glovebox. Overall a nice example of the 1970 version of the Pontiac GTO in Judge tribute form. Competently restored with only a few minor flaws, but a muscle car right from the folks at Pontiac. With mostly original metal and a color change to an extremely eye-catching color, this goat wont last long, all nicely wrapped up and waiting for you to turn the key. 242370B123439 2-Pontiac 42-GTO 37-2 Door Hardtop 0-1970 B-Baltimore, MD Assy Plant 123439-Sequential Unit Number TRIM TAG ST 70 24237-1970 GTO 2 Door Hardtop BDY B625207-Baltimore Body # TR 250-Blue Vinyl Buckets PNT 28B-Atoll Blue, Black Top 12C-3rd Week December Build Classic Auto Mall is a 336,000-square foot classic and special interest automobile showroom, featuring over 850 vehicles for sale with showroom space for up to 1,000 vehicles.
