69 GTO Judge Drag Car Pictures & Video
This is the GTO I built and raced between 1984 and 1992. Anyone know where it is? I sold it to a guy in Memphis TN when it got to the point that you couldn't be competitive without a trans break and delay box.
The picture of the baby blue 68 Tempest is how it was when I bought it from a guy named Lowel in central FL. The Dorn Brothers in Sanford did the body work and awesome Orbit Orange paint. Ken Wells built the TH400. I built the engine and rear end etc. The car weighed 3500 lbs with driver. Best ET/Speed: 1/4 mile 10.36/132mph, 1/8 mile (set up for the 1/4) 6.55/103mph, 1.48 sec. 60 foot. This is the first and only Pontiac I ever built. It was a stock bore and stroke 455 with cast rods and crank. "62" D-port heads, measured 11.2:1 compression ratio using TRW forged flat top pistions. Torquer intake, 850 Holley. Crower mechanical cam. TCI 5000 stall 8" converter. 9" Ford with 4.10 gears, Strange spool and axels. Shifts were at 5500 rpms and it went through the 1/4 mile traps at 6200 rpms. The rear tires were 14 x 33 MT (I hated the MT's, Firestones and Goodyears hooked better). I fabricated the headers from a Headman Hustler (flat collector) kit and they were worth .2 sec off the ET.
The first time out, I had $5000 in the car and ran in the 10's off the trailer with a Quadrajet. By the time I sold it, I had better than twice the money in it and had tuned 6/10th off the ET. I raced it all over FL, GA and TN and had only good times with great friends. Like they say, a bad day at the track is better than a good day at work. Hopefully I'll find some of the in car videos from Memphis where it carried the front tires 3" in the air, 6 feet out, remember, this was old school, foot breaking it.

Mecum Auction Presents - Lot # S118 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge
For the 1969 season, Arnie Beswick campaigned a three-car team, the "Super Judge" Funny Car, the "Righteous Judge" Pro Stocker and this original Ram Air IV, 4-speed Judge, which was sponsored by the Chicagoland Pontiac Dealers and competed in NHRA D/Stock. One of only a handful of no-option cars built specifically for drag racing, the Judge was factory-built with a hand-selected Ram Air IV and came without sound deadener or seam sealer to further reduce weight. As a legal D/Stocker, the Judge ran in the 12.40s at 109-110 miles per hour.
Featuring period custom paint by Dick Skully, American Racing wheels and a correct Ram Air IV, this car is in its original 1969 race condition and has been authenticated by Mr. Beswick. This Judge is a great time capsule from "The Farmer's" storied career.
