From 1969 to 1971, Pontiac produced a special package for the GTO. The Judge was meant to make Pontiac’s muscle car competitive with the lighter weight RoadRunner and became a legendary symbol of the later part of the muscle car era.
In all, over a three-year production period, only about 11k Judges were made. Of those, just over 160 1970 models were convertibles. This makes a convertible Judge a hard find today and one with all of the appropriate documentation an even harder find. However, Mecum is now offering enthusiasts just that opportunity with this matching numbers 1970 GTO Judge Convertible with all of its PHS documentation.
Under the hood of this 1970 Judge is a matching-numbers 400-cid engine mated to an automatic transmission and topped with a 4-barrel carburetor. It is equipped with a Ram Air hood and a hood mounted tachometer. Other features include a dual exhaust, a rear spoiler, power steering, power brakes, a power top, and factory air conditioning. Between the two front bucket seats is a center console and the car has been fitted with a new convertible top. Front disc brakes are hidden by Pontiac Rally II wheels wrapped in Firestone Wide Oval tires. Finishing off the design and proudly displaying the car's rare heritage is a complete set of Judge stripes.
As previously stated, this 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge convertible comes accompanied by its PHS documentation.
