1969 Pontiac GTO Judge Tribute

Restomod, LS1 Powered, No Expense Spared


Harry's Thoughts

The build quality on this tribute is impressive. Not for the purist, but most certainly for many muscle car and track day enthusiasts.


This is an exceptional 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge Tribute that looks showroom new from the outside, and has the feel of a modern muscle car on the inside. With a modern drivetrain, better quality materials, and upgrades sourced from top performance brands, this Pontiac is ready to turn heads at local, regional, and even national shows.  With just 3,500 miles since the three and a half year frame-off restoration and build was completed, it runs and drives like a showroom new modern classic.

Refinished in sporty Matador Red paint, the quality of the paint is near flawless with an incredible depth and clarity. The ceramic coat over the clear coat makes this unique red hue really shine, while keeping the quality of the paint as maintenance-free as possible. This tribute has all of the expected physical trademarks of a GTO Judge. These include the brand new and correct “Judge” vinyl graphics, Judge badges, and the painted high rear deck spoiler. The endura front bumper fits beautifully and enthusiasts will love the working hood mounted tachometer. Other tasteful upgrades to the exterior include tinted glass all the way around, custom billet door handles, American Racing chrome alloy wheels with wide Nitto high performance tires.

The interior of this coupe received even more attention than the exterior. While the intention of the exterior styling was to appear as a muscle car, the interior has a much more modern flair. The custom black leather interior is offset well with red accent stitching everywhere. Corbeau racing style black leather bucket seats hold the driver and passenger in place and appear as new. Matching the seats are a custom headliner, door panels and new square weave carpet. We love the red stitched diamond patterns used throughout the interior.

A custom built six point roll-bar all allude to the power and performance that awaits the driver in the engine bay. Added amenities include a Vintage Air AC system, custom molded and designed center console, and a full size Pioneer audio/video head unit with JL Audio speakers. The driver will also notice the AutoMeter white face gauges and Ididit steering column. One item that won’t be noticed, but is a welcome addition is the Dynamat heat and sound insulation layered throughout the car. Opening the trunk, you’ll notice the custom finished trunk with GTO badge.

All of the exterior and interior changes that were made to this coupe would be all for naught if it weren’t for the performance upgrades. Supplying the power to this Judge is a custom built 5.7 liter LS1 mated to a Tremec T56 6-speed manual transmission. This combination offers plenty of power and each shift of the short throw shifter is quick and precise through the gears. Opening the hood, you are treated to a neat and tidy engine bay without wires and a few custom upgrades. Between the custom headers and stainless steel dual exhaust with Spintech mufflers, everyone around will be treated to a powerful modern muscle sound. A quick-ratio steering box, oversized sway bars in the front and rear, adjustable front and rear coil-over shocks and Global West tubular A-arms and a fully boxed frame allow this muscle car to move more nimbly around a track or around curves than ever before. Stopping power is aptly provided by Wilwood power disc brakes at all four corners, including slotted and drilled rotors with 6-piston calipers in the front.

Included in the sale are a soft touch indoor car cover and battery tender.

Interesting Fact: The Pontiac GTO was produced in two different periods of time. The first production cycle was from 1964 to 1974, but the second cycle took place between 2004 and 2006. The first generation of the Pontiac GTO was the first muscle car to be produced in the 1960s and 1970s and is credited with starting the trend of offering many competing models. This vehicle was selected as the Motor Trend Car of the Year in 1968 and the first models use a 6.4 to 6.6-liter Pontiac V8 engine which could produce up to 325 horsepower. When the Pontiac GTO went through its second stage of production, it appeared dated to people in the United States since it was originally designed in 2001. Additionally, the price inflated to about $34,000 at the time of its launch which helped to garner a lukewarm acceptance for the car. Earlier models of the Pontiac GTO are far more sought after than later models, but both prove to be powerful cars happily driven by many!
