Ken - that sounds like a great Judge to restore. I doubt it's the first one built in that color because they started production in September. Also, Atoll Blue was a popular color. Here's the color breakdown for 1970. The breakdown for Judges is not available.

Starlight Black 1,515
Palomino Copper 1,457
Polar White 2,460
Bermuda Blue 1,861
Atoll Blue 4,980
Baja Gold 2,067
Palisade Green 2,487
Mint Turquoise 774
Pepper Green 3,661
Burgundy 1,246
Palladium Silver 2,394
Verdoro Green 3,299
Cardinal Red 3,777
Orbit Orange 618
Sierra Yellow 2,889
Granada Gold 4,664

Atoll blue Judges are desirable color regardless of the production numbers. I agree, most 70 judges seem to be white, orbit orange, silver, gold, pepper green or red.

PHS has all the build sheets, but it would be a huge undertaking to break down all the color and option info. That's what they say at least.

The reason that you see so many Judges that are Orbit Orange when only 618 were made is because, like my Judge, it was painted that way. My original color was Grenada gold with a dark green cordova top. Pretty ugly color combo if u ask me. But the guy who owned it before me painted it this once rare color.

1970 GTO colors produced
May 08, 2012 04:38PM
I found the 1970 GTO color production chart in the Collector's Originality Guide for the GTO. It shows all colors available with the number of GTO's produced in each color. It also totals all 1970 GTO's produced in these colors for a total number of 40,149.

Here's what I'm trying to find out: I bought my 1970 GTO 455 convertible way back in 1981 and learned that it was originally purchased as a special order by a dealer in Florida. I found the original build sheet under the front seat & it was heavily optioned, which included special order paint color to be Goldenrod Yellow. This color was only available in 1969, when this car was ordered and built and there are no other 70 GTO's on record this color. So, either the number of 1970 GTO's built is incorrect in the guide list, or one of the paint colors produced is wrong. The I.D. Plate under the hood of my GTO shows thr trim code (TR) to be left blank (no color selected, as it was a special order).

I know PHS does not have this level of detail available, so I'm wondering where this data came from. From the data available so far, this could be the only 70 GTO produced in this color. As you can imagine, I'm very interested in finding out if this is true. If anyone has any information on this, or suggestions on how to find out more, please let me know.
