1969 Pontiac GTO Judge, 625 hp 455, 10 sec. Drag Race Car
This is a short video with some of the best clips from my other GTO videos.
If you want more details about the car, it's construction and evolution,
check out my first/oldest GTO video (its 7:02 long). I hope you enjoy this
video and Thanks for watching.
WHAT A BRAND NEW 1969 PONTIAC GTO (ALMOST) LOOKS LIKE
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. COUPES WERE PRICED AT $3,156 AND RAGTOPS PRICED AT $3,382.
ENGINES WERE V8 400 CID, 4.12 X 3.75 BORE AND STROKE WITH 2 VERSIONS: 366
BHP AND 370 BHP. 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. A BRAND NEW OPTIC ORANGE DREAM CAR WITH THE BLACK VINYL
INTERIOR. Another restored car brought to you by 55lincoln.
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.

Pontiac GTO damn it's fast
READ DESCRIPTION BEFORE VIEWING!!
at 2,50 in this clip, look at the bottom left corner. That's the best
camera that shows how FRINKIN' FAST this car actually are. This is probably
one of the fastest street-legal cars in the world. 1/8 mile at 5,52s/204
km/h with this 1150 HP engine. But with the 2000+ HP engine it's 4,69s/252
km/h at 1/8 mile and 7,30s/300 km/h at 1/4 mile.
