History of the 1968-1972 Pontiac GTO
A restyled “Coke-bottle” body, available with optional hideaway headlights and a capped-up front with an energy-absorbing Endura bumper, made big GTO news in 1968. Then here come da’ Judge in 1969. Built through 1971, the GTO Judge borrowed its name from Rowan and Martin’s hit television show, “Laugh In.” Splashy stripes and decals, a rear spoiler and Rally II wheels sans trim rings were standard for the Judge, as was the 366-horsepower Ram Air III 400 V-8. The 370-horse Ram Air IV 400 was optional.
A restyled LeMans body ruled out optional hideaway headlights for the 1970 GTO, which came standard with a 350-horsepower 400-cid V-8. New on the options list was Pontiac’s 455-cid V-8, rated at 360 horsepower. Ram Air III and IV 400s remained available that year but were replaced in 1971 by the 335-horse 455 HO.
Only 5,807 GTOs were built for 1972, with the 455 HO, now net-rated at 300 horses, remaining the top power option.
