1970 Pontiac GTO 455/4 Speed Convertible This GTO was completely rebuilt Frame Off Restored . the rebuild was done
at considerable time and expense as you can see from the photos below (more photos of rebuild with car as well). It
has but 387 miles since its rebuild; runs and drives very well; and is a fun and very fast street car. Much
research went into this rebuild to make the car as close as possible to the special order Judge it replicates (of
which we understand there were just 3 originally); this information is included with the car as well. The period
correct 455 V8 is freshly built with a performance cam generating 420 hp. The engine is true Ram Air New black
interior with original GTO simulated wood grain dash contrasts sharply with the Orbit Orange exterior. The Muncie
M-20 wide ratio four speed transmission has the Judge Hurst T-handle shifter; a 12 inch rear with 4:33:1 gear
ratios was used with the 455. Car was fitted with a new power operated top as part of its rebuild
For the 1970 model year the GTO Just 3,615 were produced in 1970 Convertibles took on a whole new look. Styling
changes included a total Endura nosepiece with split oval grilles and dual headlamp housings (this new design
eliminated the optional hide-away headlamps), creased body sides, a different rear-bumper and taillamps, and
exhaust pipes that exited through a valance panel under the rear bumper. The hood-mounted tachometer and the Rally
II wheels remained as available options.
The base engine for the 1970 GTO was a four-barrel carbureted 400 rated at 350 hp. Other available engines were the
400 cubic inch Ram Air III and 400 cubic inch Ram Air IV. The Ram Air III was rated at 366 hp and the Ram Air IV
was rated at 370 hp. With GM finally lifting the 400 cubic inch corporate engine limit for the intermediate-size
cars, new to the 1970 GTO option list was a 455 cubic inch engine rated at 360 hp.
The Judge option was once again available with functional Ram Air hoodscoops, a rear-deck spoiler, stripes, and
"The Judge" decals.
The standard engine for The Judge was the 400 cubic inch Ram Air III while the 400 cubic inch Ram Air IV engine was
an option. The functional hoodscoops were labeled with "Ram Air" decals for the Ram Air III cars and "Ram Air IV"
decals for the Ram Air IV cars. Late in the model year, the 455 was made available in the Judge. 1970 GTO
