1969 Pontiac GTO
Pontiac GTO 1969 was the first year for "The Judge", a popular $332 option named after a skit on the Laugh-In TV program. Besides a wing, wheel, stripe and decal package, buyers also were treated to a Ram Air III 400 along with a Hurst controlled three speed manual transmission and a heavy duty suspension. Other changes were minimal from 1968 and consisted mainly of badge updates.

Below right: A hood mounted tachometer was a $63.19 option that was available starting in 1967.
