Mecum Auction Presents - Lot # S118 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge

For the 1969 season, Arnie Beswick campaigned a three-car team, the "Super Judge" Funny Car, the "Righteous Judge" Pro Stocker and this original Ram Air IV, 4-speed Judge, which was sponsored by the Chicagoland Pontiac Dealers and competed in NHRA D/Stock. One of only a handful of no-option cars built specifically for drag racing, the Judge was factory-built with a hand-selected Ram Air IV and came without sound deadener or seam sealer to further reduce weight. As a legal D/Stocker, the Judge ran in the 12.40s at 109-110 miles per hour. Featuring period custom paint by Dick Skully, American Racing wheels and a correct Ram Air IV, this car is in its original 1969 race condition and has been authenticated by Mr. Beswick. This Judge is a great time capsule from "The Farmer's" storied career.

The Last Pontiac
This song was originally recorded as a demo cut in Nashville over a year ago. The haunting lyrics detailing the fall of the automotive giant GM and the Pontiac brand naturally led to the human side of the many manufacturing plants closures throughout the United States, but greatly impacting Michigan. This song and video is dedicated to those families who suddenly found the factory that for generations had been their family's employer, were just closing their doors ... and changing forever these towns and families!

2006 GTO with Kilduff Shifter
My 06 GTO with Kilduff Shifter (http://www.kilduffmachine.com/) Special thanks to Paulie from Auto Body Creationz on Long Island NY: 631/940-9201 Shifter can be found here: http://www.kilduffmachine.com/ Transmission is a RPM Level V 4L65e. I did this because I wanted to try something different. You don't have to use the rods, the lever to the far left operates like a normal PRND lever. I don't use this at the drag strip (I just leave it in 3), but it is fun on the street. Shifter can be returned to stock. Thanks for watching.

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.
