Description for Pontiac GTO 1969

1969 GTO JUDGE, ORIGINAL MATCHING NUMBERS ENGINE, 400 c.i. Ram Air III. PONTIAC HISTORICAL SOCIETY verified with THE JUDGE OPTION. If you are a serious buyer then I don't need to explain the significance of The Judge option or the value of having the original engine. Here is what I can tell you about this car: I purchased the car in 1999 from a guy in Grand Rapids Michigan. He was a sort of car broker and he had several GTOs and was raising money to start a business. The car was titled out of California when I bought it. The reasons that I bought the car were: verified Judge option; block number matched the VIN; super clean underneath. This car was obviously somewhere warm for most of its’ life. In the pictures of the bottom of the car I did not clean the underside of the car as I didn’t want to appear that I had painted the bottom. The lighter color you see on the underneath pictures are just dirt. After I bought the car I replaced any rusted metal brake and fuel lines and all of the rubber brake and fuel lines. I blasted the rally II wheels and powder coated the silver base on them. I added the charcoal gray and several coats of clear to them. They still look great almost 20 years later. I installed an original GTO "wood wheel" even though it is not original to this car it looks great. The original wood wheels fetch over $400 alone. I have the original black steering wheel and a Pontiac Service Manual that I will include with the car. The car runs strong although it doesn’t get run often enough. rebuilt the motor in 2006. If I recall correctly, it is bored 30 over. I added a mechanical oil pressure gauge just because it is so important. I bought a new Optima battery in August 2018 for it. I had the engine out again in 2020 to fix a broken gasket causing an oil leak. Body wise I already told you that the bottom side is clean. I had to replace the panel directly between the rear window and the deck lid. There are a few bubbles under the paint on the deck lid that haven’t worsened since I have owned the car. There are some scrapes and scratches in the paint, that’s why I posted so many pictures as to not hide anything. I had to replace the hood tach and it is fully functional. The hood and enduro bumper where repainted in the process. The hood has had some bubbles pop up in the paint recently. The speedometer/odometer does not work. I replaced the pencil gear for the speedo once but it didn’t last long. The rear-end is not a posi unit and has 2:71 gears in it, but it is a Pontiac rear-end. This was great for us because I didn’t ever race the car but we did take many out of town trips in the car over the years. These issues are relatively inexpensive to fix if desired. The transmission is a four speed with a HURST Shifter and works well. Priced below a solid Good or #3 condition per the Hagerty pricing tool (which is much lower than the NADA value of $83,085). This is a matching numbers engine actual Judge that at least meets the NADA Average Value and has some attributes of the NADA High Value description, somewhere between these two NADA descriptions: Average Retail Value and High Retail Value
