15k: GTO Judge Styled: 1971 Pontiac LeMans Wagon

The Pontiac GTO was an intermediate sized muscle car built on GM’s A-platform, available as a coupe, hardtop or convertible.  The ultimate version of the 2nd generation GTO was the optional Judge package, which added a ram air hood to a high power 455 V8 and some gaudy badges.  Unfortunately the GTO was never available as a wagon, but that didn’t stop someone from building one.  Find this 1971 Pontiac LeMans Wagon currently bidding for $12,445 reserve-not-met on eBay, located in Los Angeles, CA with 2 days to go.

According to the VIN, this wagon started life at the Fremont, CA Pontiac factory as a simple 3rd generation Pontiac LeMans 4-door wagon with 3rd row seat, probably powered by a 350 cubic inch (5.7 liter) V8.  Someone has poured a ton of money into this thing to make what you see here.

Under the hood is a 455 cubic inch V8 (that has been “built” out to 471 cubic inches) and is probably good for a few more than the original 355 horsepower from a ’71 GTO.  Even with the 4000+ lbs of mass from the giant wagon body, this car should scoot pretty well.

Whoa!! Are we down under?  Nope, just a photo that has been inexplicably mirror flipped.
