The first thing that popped in to our heads when we laid eyes on this well-built GTO was: “Some cars just drip presence.” Now, that's all well and good unless 'initial draw' doesn't equal 'ultimate impression'. For a car to be truly desirable, that presence must be founded on quality mechanicals. Well, we can certainly attest that this real-deal Judge definitely has the merit to back up its presence thanks to a buff 461, a tough Tremec 5-speed and a roster of updated ancillaries that includes names like, FiTech, TMI and Ridler. So, without further ado, here's our latest world-class resto-mod!

BODYWORK/TRIM

A factory Carousel Red Ram Air III Judge that began life in sunny California, this GTO's classic good looks originated in the mind of engineer John Z. DeLorean. But it was a detailed rotisserie restoration that ensured its present appearance is top-notch in virtually every way. Back in 2001, the car was purchased as a torn apart project and parked in the corner of its restorer's shop. Fast forward to late 2015, and the restorer kicked off a 2-year, ground-up rebuild that paired an original Endura nose with new fenders, a new hood and one new quarter. That stripped and solid profile was correctly re-sealed in glossy PPG 2-stage. And in the summer of 2017, this razor-sharp Poncho debuted as a first-class head turner that's fresh, composed and ready for prime time!

At the front of the car's flashy pigment, a stainless-trimmed dual-port grille hangs a prominent “G T O” badge and requisite T3 headlights above ornate parking lamps. At the top of that grille, a black-trimmed Ram Air Hood founds a body-matched tachometer in front of stainless-trimmed glass that's centered between a polished antenna and polished driver's mirror. At the sides of that hood, bright “G T O” emblems, brilliant Judge stripes and GTO-themed marker lamps perfectly complement stainless wheel frames, stainless rocker guards and polished door handles. And at the back of the car, a stainless-trimmed decklid hangs a correct wing and fourth “G T O” script over clean taillights, a body-width bumper and polished exhaust tips.

ENGINE

Hoist the hood and you'll find a date-correct Pontiac 400 that's been bored and stroked to a whopping 461 cubic inches! At the top of that tough Turquoise terror, functional ram air induction funnels wind through FiTech Go EFI 4 fuel injection. That throttle body rides a lightweight Edelbrock intake, which feeds hot Edelbrock Performer heads that cap an Erson 7/4 swap roller cam. Those heads are framed by coated Doug's headers and loomed MSD Super Conductor plug wires, which are sequenced to a Pertronix Flame-Thrower distributor. Opposite that distributor, CVF Racing serpentine components spin modern power steering and modern air conditioning behind a chrome puller fan. In front of that fan, a chrome support tops a trusty aluminum radiator. Details like polished breathers, braided fluid lines, Proform valve covers and a polished expansion tank trim out show worthy aesthetics. And all that prized hardware adds up to roughly 475 horsepower!

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Logging few miles since the car's ground-up restoration, this goat's stripped and restored undercarriage is completely free of significant issues and major defects. The stout big block commands a new Tremec TKO600 5-speed. That gearbox powers a rebuilt 10-bolt axle, which spins a posi-trac differential around fresh, 3.55 gears that were sourced from USA Standard. That drivetrain rides a familiar F41 Sport Suspension, which has been upgraded with BMR lowering springs and aftermarket control arms. At the corners of that suspension, The Right Stuff Detailing Signature Big Brake calipers clamp drilled and slotted rotors. At the center of the car's original floors, a throaty Pypes exhaust system hangs an X-shaped crossover in front of aggressive Street Pro mufflers. And everything rolls on Polished Ridler 645s, which spin 225/45ZR18 Sumitomo HTR ZIIIs in front of 275/35ZR20 Sumitomo HTR ZIIIs.

INTERIOR

Swing the doors and you'll find a clean leather interior that feels like the perfect place to spend a warm summer evening. Front and center, orange-stitched TMI buckets lead an orange-stitched, TMI-upholstered bench. The 461's vitals are displayed by crisp, white-face gauges, which ride next to Classic Auto Air conditioning and a RetroSound Hermosa head unit that pipes Bluetooth audio through Kicker speakers. Like-new carpet anchors a chrome Hurst shifter behind stainless-trimmed foot pedals. At the sides of the car, pliable door panels mix manual hardware with orange-trimmed emblems. The driver spins a wood-rimmed Grant steering wheel. And the passengers store essentials in a custom-upholstered trunk.
