This is the car's original, numbers-matching 400 cubic inch Ram Air III V8 engine, and it was rebuilt to stock specs fairly recently. It stars and runs beautifully with no issues—good oil pressure, no warm weather fussiness even with the A/C cranking, and a fantastic V8 rumble out back. It is also correctly detailed with a Ram Air air cleaner assembly up top, complete with vacuum-operated flap, correct Pontiac Turquoise engine enamel, and fresh cad plating on any part that needed it. The list of new parts is extensive, including the brakes from master cylinder to pads, the electrical system including the harness, and little stuff like the GM-coded coolant hoses with proper tower clamps. Factory exhaust manifolds dump into a fresh Flowmaster dual exhaust system, but that seems to be the lone deviation from factory spec.
Muncie 4-speed manual transmission is also this car's numbers-matching unit and it feeds a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end with 3.55 gears and a Posi limited slip inside. You'll note that the suspension includes a lot of new equipment and the floors are in fantastic condition with no evidence of previous rust or rot. Take a peek inside the rockers and you'll even spot crisp, clear seams and no signs of the dreaded tin worm in this car's past. There's also a new gas tank hanging out back as well as a set of proper Pontiac split exhaust tips that are just plain cool. Factory 14-inch Rally II wheels are fitted and they are correct—trim rings were not part of the deal when you bought a new Judge. It currently sits on fresh 225/70/14 white-letter radials that give it just the right aggressive look and are probably a big upgrade over the original Firestones.
