CLICK-> Carousel Red 1969 Judge hardtop in Joe's garage. It's got black painted hood scoop inserts and fixed headlights. I think every garage needs a Judge like this. Or... At least mine.
CLICK-> Here is a shot of the Ram Air III engine that Joe installed. Nice.
CLICK-> Joe has since restored his Carousel Red 1969 Judge hardtop. He says it is back to the way it was when it was new from the dealer.
CLICK-> Carousel Red 1969 Judge hardtop, left rear view.
CLICK-> Joe has a Ram Air III engine under the hood.
CLICK-> Carousel Red 1969 Judge hardtop, interior view. This one has the Judge glove box emblem. The kick panels have been modified to hold speakers.
CLICK-> Carousel Red 1969 Judge hardtop owned by Mike and Tammy Ingersoll from Paola, Kansas. It's got a Ram Air II engine and a 4-speed manual transmission. Mike adds, "We have owned this car since 1980. My wife and I eloped in this car in 1988." The guy on the left has an unusual posture. He's wearing a baseball cap. What is he doing with his hands? I think he's signalling the pitcher for a curveball down low.
CLICK-> Mayfair Maize 1969 Judge hardtop owned by Tim and Scott Smolinski from Vienna, Virginia.
CLICK-> Black 1969 Judge hardtop owned by Dave Juliano from New Jersey. This Judge has a 455 HO engine, Demon carbs, Indian Adventure long tube headers, two chamber Flow Masters, Hotchkiss rear suspension with air bags, and 4-speed manual transmission.
CLICK-> Black 1969 Judge hardtop, left side view. Dave says it puts out 425hp on the Dyno. It does the quarter mile in 12.40 seconds at 112mph.
CLICK-> John Robinson purchased this Palladium Silver 1969 Judge. John tells us the details, "This is a long story but a good one. In July 2004 I was selling parts on eBay when a man asked a question about some Tempest grilles. I said that I would get back to him after the weekend, since I was busy getting my 69 GTO ready for the Car Craft Summernationals. He replied that he had a bunch of GTOs and that some might be for sale. I asked what he had out of curiosity. His reply was that he had 35 GTOs and 5 Judges! That's right 5 Judges! I was immediately interested and asked about the Judges. He had four 69 Judges and one 70 Judge. After months of emailing and several phone calls, I flew down to Texas in April 2005 and inspected his entire 140 car collection. (Turns out he has a few 67-69 Camaros also) These pictures were taken out in his field where the Judge had sat for the better part of 13 years. The Palladium Silver Judge came with a Ram Air III, automatic, blue vinyl top, blue interior, factory A/C, power steering and brakes per the PHS documents. The Judge has all the original sheetmetal and factory rear spoiler along with full interior and all trim pieces. The engine and trans are the only items missing. The floors and trunk are very solid and this will be a fun car to restore. Not many Judges with automatics and A/C were made and with the rare color combo. This one will be a beauty. In case you were wondering about other three 69 Judges - they are all Carousel Red 4-speed cars (one with A/C) and all have Parchment interiors. All have great floors and are very clean cars. We got them all home by the end of August 2005 with the help of the seller who turned out to be a very knowledgable person and a great guy to deal with." John and his friend purchased the other three orange Judges. The fourth Judge was Sierra Yellow with a 4-speed - he might get that one next spring.
CLICK-> This Palladium Silver 1969 Judge hardtop has been sitting here for some 13 years before John purchased it.
CLICK-> Palladium Silver 1969 Judge hardtop, left rear view. It's got the rear bumper on the roof. Looks like a 66-67 Malibu right next to it.
CLICK-> Palladium Silver 1969 Judge hardtop, right side view. You can just make out a shadow line for the Judge stripe on the front fender and door. Another 69 GTO is behind that white 4-door car. I see another possible GTO (68?) on the right side of this shot.
CLICK-> John Robinson picked up this Carousel Red 1969 Judge hardtop as well. This one had a parchment interior and a 4-speed manual transmision. You can see the white headliner hanging in the rear window.
