I think only 357 Judge hardtops were made for 1971, plus 17 convertibles. How many of each made it to Canada?  All 1971 Judges had the 455 H.O. and 3.55:1 12-bolt rear. They had a choice of Muncie 3-speed manual (believe it or not), Muncie M22 close ratio manual, or TH400.

That's why the title says very rare, probably not cheap !

I really like the car in red however if the car is to be considered rare, restored or original at least put the correct wheels back on it, those body colour Rally II wheels did not appear until 75 or 76 and really add nothing to the car. twocents.gif

Rare is such an overused term. GM was in the business of selling cars. They would sell as many as people were willing to buy. By 1971 muscle or super cars as they were called back then were falling out of favour. Nobody was buying them. Think there are 16-17 Judge convertibles as well.

Make mine Tropical Lime, inside out. Naturally a 4 speed.

 Yup, insurance premiums killed the market, followed by emissions standards and ultimately the fuel crisis. It wasn't that people didn't want these cars, they just couldn't carry the insurance premiums.

 

And yes Ray, those body-coloured Rally II's don't look bad but they don't look "right" either. Regular Rally II wheels without trim rings were correct, or optional Honeycombs.

I like the '71 Judge because it's just so rare. But I always thought that they really "uglied up" for 1971 what was a really nice looking front end in 1970. And the red wheels to my eye are not attractive at all. But a '71 Judge is still a great find!

I think that the Judge was always a little over the top, but that was what it was supposed to be. I prefer a regular GTO. The 71 fronts didn't really put me off although it was busier than the '70 front. The mesh pushed out flush with the grille opening is almost like something you would find in Nascar

 

Ray, I speculate that the beast on the trailer is probably a toy that belongs to a Pontiac exec. Usually the GM division that supplied big inch engines for marine power was Oldsmobile with the 455. Berkley Jets almost always came with the Olds 455 back then. As GM gradually backed away from big engines in their passenger cars, the marine industry really picked up on the Chevy 454s.
