Lot #722 - This GTO Judge convertible is one of only 168 produced. It comes from a private collection. Built on April 30, 1969, at the Pontiac Assembly Plant in Pontiac, MI, it was shipped to R.H. Long Motor Sales Co, in Framingham, MA, for delivery to the first registered owner. This GTO Judge Convertible has had a recent no-expense-spared, frame-off restoration. The Judge was completely disassembled and stripped to bare metal. The frame was removed, and the entire drivetrain was rebuilt. The body of this vehicle was gone over from front to back, and the body fit is laser-straight and better than new. Once the body was prepared, it was given a fresh coat of the correct Atoll Blue (code 28), using the best modern DuPont base coat/clear coat paint. The black bucket seat interior and convertible top were carefully done as well. The frame was stripped, and all chassis components were replaced and/or refinished in the correct original factory finishes. The 400 Ram Air III engine (code WS) was sent out and completely rebuilt. The crank was checked and lightly refinished. The Ram Air III cylinder heads were checked and given a valve job along with new valves and valve springs. Everything was reassembled, and the entire engine assembly was given a coat of the correct Pontiac engine paint. No stone was left unturned, and the interior was completely redone with nothing but the best of correct materials. All instruments and gauges were checked for operation and repaired or replaced if necessary. All wire harnesses were replaced with new. The restoration on this GTO is factory-correct, right down to the correct and original-style Firestone white-letter tires. The car comes with copies of all PHS paperwork and Pontiac Division Window Sticker.
