1968 Pontiac GTO 400 V8 Hurst Shifted Original Muscle Car
This is an amazing three-owner, PHS documented, real 1968 GTO that is sure
to make some collector proud! The engine is the original, numbers matching
400 CID, 350 HP YS code engine that has been completely rebuilt by the
previous owner. It has a stock compression ratio of 10.75 to 1, Torquer
series camshaft and intake from Edelbrock, roller rockers, new Quick Fuel
SS-750 carburetor, Hooker headers, and newer alternator, Howe 4 core
radiator, and twin electric cooling fans. The transmission is a factory
correct 400 turbo that has been rebuilt
and has a 2800-3000 stall converter. The rear end is also worth mentioning
- it is the original, numbers matching 10 bolt rear end with a newer Auburn
carrier and 3.90 Richmond gears. The body has been removed from the frame
by the previous owner, and there were new body mounts and hardware
installed, as well as all of the factory undercoating removed. The trunk
and floor pans were then painted semi-gloss black for a clean look to the
undercarriage. The paint on this car is base coat/clear coat Regimental Red
and it looks very good! The interior is white vinyl bucket seats with a
center console and Hurst His and Her shifter, and with the exception of new
carpet and a new headliner is in very nice original condition. Other
options on this car include A/C that has been upgraded to R134-A, AM/FM
radio, power steering, power disc brakes, rear air bags, Hotchkis front and
rear sway bar kit, Hotchkis upper and lower rear control arm kit, new 15"
Rally II wheels with new trim rings and center caps, BF Goodrich raised
white letter radial tires, full size spare tire, seat belts, remote mirror,
and hideaway headlights. Documentation that is with the car includes the
original owner's manual, build sheet, Protect-O-Plate, and the original
dealer's bill of sale. Thanks for checking it out!

Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.

Pontiac GTO Supercharged
The 1969 model did not have the vent windows, had a slight grille and
taillight revision, moved the ignition key from the dashboard to the
steering column (which locked the steering wheel when the key was removed,
a Federal requirement installed one year ahead of schedule), and the gauge
faces changed from steel blue to black. In addition, the rear quarter-panel
mounted side marker lamps changed from a red lens shaped like the Pontiac
"V" crest to one shaped like the broad GTO badge. Front outboard headrests
were made standard equipment on all GTOs built after January 1, 1969.
The previous economy engine and standard 350 hp 400 CID V8 remained, while
the 360 hp (270 kW) 400HO was upgraded to the Ram Air III, rated at 366 hp
(273 kW) at 5,100 rpm. The top option was the 370 hp (280 kW) Ram Air IV,
which featured special header-like high-flow Exhaust manifolds, high-flow cylinder heads, a
specific high-rise aluminum intake manifold, larger Rochester QuadraJet
four-barrel carburetor, high-lift/long-duration camshaft, plus various
internal components capable of withstanding higher engine speeds and power
output. Unlike the highest rpm big-block Chevy and Hemi motors, the Ram Air
IV utilized hydraulic lifters.
By this time, the gross power ratings of both Ram Air engines were highly
suspect, bearing less relationship to developed power and more to an
internal GM policy limiting all cars except the Corvette to no more than
one advertised horsepower per 10 lb (4.5
kg) of curb weight. The higher-revving Ram Air IV's advertised power peak
was actually listed at 5,000 rpm—100 rpm lower than the less-powerful Ram
Air III. The straight stock Ram Air IV's were easily pushing 500 hp (370
kW) with a few tweaks to the carburetor and timing, and utilizing a careful
mix of high octane airplane fuel in the tank.
The Ram Air V was introduced in 1969 to professional racing, not for sale
to the general public or in showrooms, and was sold and delivered in a
crate. It was a special 400 block with newly designed high compression
tunnel port heads and a special high rise intake manifold. A prototype GTO
so equipped could go 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds, and the quarter-mile time was
13.89at101.76 mph seconds at 123 mph (198 km/h). Ram Air Vs were not
installed in GTOs at the factory; it was available only as an
"over-the-counter" product for professional racing, and therefore most went
to Pontiac racers of the time.
The most significant event of 1969 for the GTO was the launch of a new
model called 'The Judge'. The Judge name came from a comedy routine, "Here
Come de Judge", used repeatedly on the Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In TV show.
The Judge routine, made popular by legendary showman Sammy Davis, Jr. was
borrowed from the act of long-time Burlesque entertainer Dewey "Pigmeat"
Markham. Advertisements used slogans like "All rise for The Judge" and "The
Judge can be bought." As originally conceived, the Judge was to be a
low-cost GTO, stripped of some gimmicks to make it competitive with the
Plymouth Road Runner. During its development, however, it was decided to
make it the ultimate in street performance and image. The resulting package
ended up being US$332 more expensive than a standard GTO, and included
the Ram Air III engine, Rally II wheels without trim rings, Hurst shifter
(with a unique T-shaped handle), wider tires, various decals, and a rear
spoiler. Pontiac claimed that the spoiler had some functional effect at
higher speeds, producing a small but measurable down force, but it was of
little value at legal speeds except for style. The Judge was initially
offered only in "Carousel Red," but midway into the model year a variety of
other colors became available. Of these other colors, a "Ram Air IV Judge
Hardtop" painted in Crystal Turquoise with a black interior is the most
rare with only two known to exist, one in Chicago IL, and one in Lenexa KS.
The GTO was surpassed in sales both by the Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 and the
Plymouth Road Runner, but 72,287 were sold during the 1969 model year, with
6,833 of them being The Judge. The rarest 1969 GTO, omitting color options,
was the Ram Air IV Judge Convertible - only five were built (Year One

Looking at the photos, you are no doubt as impressed as I am with this
Pontiac. This car has a beautiful QQ Verdoro Green paint with the 223 trim
package which screams GTO muscle. If you�ve ever seen an old GTO, you
know how hard it is to make paint stay on these early urethane pieces. No
issues here. You know it's good when you can see yourself well enough to
shave. All the stainless and chrome trim is gorgeous. The chrome, front and
rear, is spectacular, and the stainless trim around the wheel arches and
along the rocker panel has been buffed until it shines like chrome. All the
lenses and badges are excellent and exact.Glass and lenses are very good
all around. Adding to this GTO's muscle look are those awesome redline
What you�re really aching to know about is that engine under the hood, am
I right? Well, how about a numbers matching WT 400 cubic inch sporting 360
There�s nothing radical in there, but these big Ponchos are known for
making big torque, and that�s exactly what this monster does. It lights
off easily, idles nicely, and although the owner has driven it just enough
to work out the bugs, there�s little doubt that this is a seriously fast
car. And like the exterior, the engine bay is highly detailed and
beautifully finished. Backing up that big block is an original-spec Muncie
M21 close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission. Look carefully at those photos
and you�ll see solid floors and a nicely finished chassis. Ice cold A/C,
power steering and power front disc brakes makes this Goat and easy driver.
The GTO�s gorgeous black vinyl interior remains pretty much intact as it
was designed more than 40 years ago. It�s all-new in there, from the
seatcovers to the headliner, and looks show ready. The black is elegant and
upscale-looking. The original steering wheel is excellent, and the factory
gauges are fully functional. The stereo AM/FM provides the tunes and
Correct GTO emblems are on the fresh door panels, and it looks better than
new in every conceivable way. Don't forget the tilt wheel so you can place
it in just the right position for cruising or muscling the competition.
Having a gorgeous car that can also open a big can of whoop-ass on just
about anything else on the street is its own reward. Take another look at
the craftsmanship on this car and imagine yourself pulling into the local
cruise night. This car will draw a crowd.
