LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge RAM AIR IV Convertible.
Conceived as direct competition for Plymouth’s bargain basement Road Runner, Pontiac’s GTO Judge hit the street in 1969 with a higher standard level of trim as part of a package that included bold graphics, the GTO’s special suspension, wide-tread Polyglas G70-14 tires and the 400/366 HP Ram Air III engine. The Judge could be had with the much more radical Ram Air IV, deceitfully rated at just 370 HP. The Ram Air IV returned in the artfully restyled 1970 GTO, which gained a more muscular look with a new Endura front end and pronounced fender creases accented on the Judge by multi-colored graphics. At $558.20 the 1970 Ram Air IV option was outrageously expensive, but it was also Pontiac engineering at its renowned best: a 4-bolt main block, high-lift cam with 1.65:1 rocker arms working in free-flowing round-port heads, special aluminum intake manifold and high-flow cast iron headers, all topped with the famous Ram Air intake system sealed to twin hood scoops.
