Default 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air III - "Psychedelic Judge"

Saw this car at Barrett-Jackson last week. Loved the color combination.

From the Hot Rod article:

This GTO was originally purchased from Mayhew Motors in Drayton Valley, Alberta, Canada, by a local physician. The story goes that the doctor ordered the car but apparently not in the color combo it arrived in. When he saw it, he was less than pleased and refused payment. The Judge thus sat on the lot unsold for several weeks before the doctor eventually returned, this time looking for a deal. We can only surmise that the dealer softened on the price, because the doctor got his new GTO Judge. He drove it for several years before passing it along to his son. A cousin and at least one more owner ensued before it was purchased by Carmine Golemme, but the car never strayed far from its original Alberta home.

Carmine says, "I realized this was a super unusual color combination, and it appealed to me because of that, and because it looked to be a Judge in good condition. It was built at the Oshawa, Ontario, assembly plant, which was known to turn out some 'unavailable' color combos from time to time. I am personally aware of two black 1970 GTOs built at Oshawa, one with a green interior, the other with blue, neither of which was supposed to be available with black cars. We think these anomalies were likely due to some kind of supply issues, though there isn't any real proof of that."

Black is Code A, which was available with any interior color, as you can see here:

I was quoting the article in those two paragraphs, I'm not an expert in Pontiacs by any means.

Thank you for the correction though.

I realize that. No worries. Just a typical example how our hobby is full of unnecessary yarns.
