All Rise as Stephan’s Judge Rolls onto the Scene

Stephan's 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air 3 Gilbert, ARIZ. (March 16, 2013) — As a serious automobile enthusiast, Stephan had been hanging around at Rolling Canvas Customs when he got a lead on a 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air 3.  Over time, he was eventually able to purchase the Judge.

Stephan's 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air 3Researching the VIN, Stephan learned the Judge rolled off the assembly line as a Carousel Red 400 ci Ram Air 3 four speed equipped with hideaway headlights, a center console, AM radio with an 8 track player.  Interestingly, the brakes on all four corners are drum and there’s no power steering.

Stephan knows both the uniqueness and importance of the Judge, and with that in mind, he began a complete nut and bolt restoration of the GTO.

Jay Webb and Rolling Canvas Customs was commissioned to perform the body and paint work necessary for the restoration.  They had the M20 four speed transmission and rear end reconditioned.

Dave at Scottsdale Automotive Machine refreshed the Pontiac 400 that powers the Goat.

The interior was done by John at Creative Interiors in Mesa.

Stephan and his good friend Chris Valentino completed much of the final assembly on the GTO.  They did a fantastic job creating a beautiful piece of American muscle car history.

This GTO has been restored to concourse quality.  Great lengths were gone to researching each and every nut, bolt, clip and fastener, ensuring the end result of the restoration was accurate to the way it rolled off the assembly line in 1969.
