The Pontiac GTO was a muscle car manufactured by the American automaker General Motors between 1964 and 1974. A revival by the carmaker Holden (GM) produced another generation of GTO cars between 2004 and 2006. The predecessor to the original GTO was the 1963 Pontiac Tempest. The later version was inspired on the 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix coupe.
The GTO was available as a coupe, a hardtop (without B-pillars), and as a convertible. All editions came with large displacement engines. First edition cars came with a choice of either a 389 cu in (6.4 L) V8 or a 400 cu in (6.6 L) V8. Later cars came with power plants such as a 400 cu in (6.6 L) V8 or massive 455 cu in (7.5 L) V8. Ram Air packages were available that made the engines breathe better and get better performance out of the same displacement.
The most well known of the GTO editions is the 1969 GTO branded “The Judge,” a name that came from a comedy routine on the TV show, Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In. It came with the same big block Ram Air engine as other cars of the year, but the $332 option package came with special decals, wider tires, a rear spoiler and a T-shaped shifter. The first year only came in red, but later editions offered more color choices.
The GTO was selected Motor Trend Car of the Year in 1968. Up to 96,946 were produced, a high production total for its class of vehicle. Its design and performance make it one of the most iconic American muscle cars.
