Editor’s note: The ClassicCars.com Journal will be covering all of the action during Arizona Auction Week in Scottsdale, Arizona. Check out our other coverage here.
This documented, award-winning, factory-produced 1969 GTO Judge Ram Air III has received a full professional, frame-off, nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration. It will be offered at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction.
It’s powered by a correct and original WS-code 400/366hp Ram Air III engine backed by its matching-numbers Muncie 4-speed manual transmission.
This Judge is finished in its factory-original color of Matador Red with a black interior. Options include bucket seat interior with console, power steering, power front disc brakes, heavy-duty Safe-T-Track rear end, Rally gauges with hood tachometer, hideaway headlights and an AM radio.
During restoration, the car 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 with great panel gap fitment. The frame was also stripped, and all chassis components were replaced and refinished in their correct factory finishes.
The interior was completely redone as well.
This Ram Air II features correct T3 headlamps, Rally wheels with red stripe tires, correct-labeled GM hoses with correct tower clamps, factory assembly-line decals and stamps, and a correctly restored battery and cables.
This Judge was originally sold new at Miller Pontiac-Cadillac Inc. in Fremont, Ohio, and comes with PHS paperwork, Pontiac Division Window Sticker and an original owner’s manual, owner history, receipts, vintage photos and restoration photos.
