73 Phantom GTO Judge


Recommended Posts

This was a modernized version of a "phantom" 73 GTO Judge. My own resin body and interior, oversize resin wheels  from EBAY, 72 Cutlass chassis, 66 GTO engine and lots of scratch building. Testor's Flaming Orange paint. A fun build. Trying to think up some decals for it but calling the construction phase done.

Awesome! The '73 is my favorite GTO out of all of the years they made them.

I guess it's not objectively the best-looking, but I like all of the '73-77 Pontiac colonnade cars... and the '73 (Luxury) LeMans and GTO specifically, the most.


I didn't come up with this, because it's not obvious at all, and I forget where I read it, but I agree with it:

the overall '73 LeMans design (in coupe form, anyway) intentional or not... vaguely looks like like a 70's interpretation of an early-40's coupe. (other than the huge mandated bumpers) Maybe that's a bit out-there... but it stuck with me. I could see what they meant by it.
