69 GTO Judge Drag Car Pictures & Video
This is the GTO I built and raced between 1984 and 1992. Anyone know where it is? I sold it to a guy in Memphis TN when it got to the point that you couldn't be competitive without a trans break and delay box.
The picture of the baby blue 68 Tempest is how it was when I bought it from a guy named Lowel in central FL. The Dorn Brothers in Sanford did the body work and awesome Orbit Orange paint. Ken Wells built the TH400. I built the engine and rear end etc. The car weighed 3500 lbs with driver. Best ET/Speed: 1/4 mile 10.36/132mph, 1/8 mile (set up for the 1/4) 6.55/103mph, 1.48 sec. 60 foot. This is the first and only Pontiac I ever built. It was a stock bore and stroke 455 with cast rods and crank. "62" D-port heads, measured 11.2:1 compression ratio using TRW forged flat top pistions. Torquer intake, 850 Holley. Crower mechanical cam. TCI 5000 stall 8" converter. 9" Ford with 4.10 gears, Strange spool and axels. Shifts were at 5500 rpms and it went through the 1/4 mile traps at 6200 rpms. The rear tires were 14 x 33 MT (I hated the MT's, Firestones and Goodyears hooked better). I fabricated the headers from a Headman Hustler (flat collector) kit and they were worth .2 sec off the ET.
The first time out, I had $5000 in the car and ran in the 10's off the trailer with a Quadrajet. By the time I sold it, I had better than twice the money in it and had tuned 6/10th off the ET. I raced it all over FL, GA and TN and had only good times with great friends. Like they say, a bad day at the track is better than a good day at work. Hopefully I'll find some of the in car videos from Memphis where it carried the front tires 3" in the air, 6 feet out, remember, this was old school, foot breaking it.
69 GTO Judge " Sounds Nasty " 4 Speed 2 1/2" Pypes Exhaust
1969 GTO Judge 1st. Cold start after being fully restored. The idle is a little high. It's a real PHS documented 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge. With a WS Ram Air III 400 CID engine, 4 Speed tranny. Running 3 tube hedman headers with a 2 1/2" Pypes with X crossover Exhaust system. I added lots of options including: Tilt, 8-Track, dual remote mirrors, maplight, Tinted windows, hideaway headlights, Exhaust tips, NOS Hurst emblem, Lojack, door edge guards, quick ratio power steering. The frame was powdercoated along with the control arms sway bar etc. The car had a rare Ram Air 4 Distributer that gives it a nice loopy sound along with a nasty cam.

THIS IS A SPECTACULAR RESTORATION OF A '69 GTO. IF YOU WENT TO A PONTIAC DEALER BACK IN '69 TO BUY A GTO THIS IS WHAT IT MOSTLY WOULD LOOK LIKE. THERE ARE SOME MODIFICATIONS LIKE THE CHROME RADIATOR SHROUD, ENGINE, AND OTHER FEATURES BUT MOST EVERY DETAIL IS LIKE NEW, FROM THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT, UNDERNEATH AS SEEN REFLECTED IN MIRRORS, THE INTERIOR IS PERFECT, AND ALSO THE TRUNK COMPARTMENT. IN 1969 MODEL 242, TEMPEST GTO'S CAME IN TWO MODELS: HARDTOP COUPE AND CONVERTIBLE COUPE. BOTH MODELS HAD A 112 INCH WHEELBASE WITH 64,851 COUPES MADE, AND 7,436 CONVERTIBLES PRODUCED.

FOR ALL PONTIAC MODELS THERE WERE 13 ENGINE VARIANTS AVAILABLE. THIS IS PART OF PONTIAC'S HERITAGE THEN, DIFFERENT SIZE MUSCLE FOR DIFFERENT SIZE PONTIACS. BUT CHECK THIS JEWEL OUT. THIS IS A ONE OF A KIND RESTORATION OF A SELDOM SEEN GTO. SO BACK IN '69 WHEN YOU WENT TO THE PONTIAC DEALER TO BUY A GTO, THIS IS MOSTLY WHAT THE SALESMAN WOULD HAVE SHOWN YOU.

NOT MY CAR!!! Just thought it was a cool video.
This beast sports a twin turbo 522cid big block Chevy that screams out 1250hp on pump gas and a ridiculous 2000hp on race gas! Ever go 0 to 150mph in 5 seconds -- Butch can. Butch and his 3700lb Pontiac cruise the local streets (with parachute, of course) and run the quarter in 7 seconds. How many 70 year old men have the nuts to mash the throttle on 2000hp? Not sure, but Butch sure does. The Pontiac was transformed into this behemoth at Nelson Supercars.
