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.

Arnie Beswick's 1969 D/Stock Pontiac GTO Judge V8TV-Video
http://www.v8tvshow.com - We recently came across legendary drag racer Arnie The Farmer Beswicks 1969 D/Stock Pontiac GTO Judge. Back in 1969, Pontiac let out a few hand-tweaked Ram Air IV 400 cubic inch GTOs to a few lucky drag racers. These engines were rumored to far surpass the stock 370 horsepower rating, and the story has it that Pontiac wanted these Ram Air IV Judges to be raced in stock-class races across the country. Beswicks car is truly a stripper model, with no options or sound deadener to keep it light. Even the seam sealer was left off this car to keep the weight to a minimum.
