1971 Pontiac GTO Judge Convertible Barrett Jackson

This rare 1971 Pontiac GTO Judge convertible is one of only 17 built for the 1971 model year. Check out that beautiful Castillian Bronze paint job! This beauty was treated to an extensive frame-off restoration in 2009 by the Atlanta Rod Shop. And it still looks showroom fresh! This Judge is powered by the notorious 455 HO Ram Air engine mated to an automatic transmission. According to Barrett-Jackson, this Judge was restored to factory fresh condition and features such period correct items as T-3 headlamps and Firestone white letter tires. The Judge also received the 2010 Pontiac-Oakland Gold Club points judging of 375 out of 400 points. The winning bidder took this beauty home for $192,500, including buyer’s commission. Not only that, he won bragging rights for having one of the most exclusive GTOs on the planet.
