Bidding will end later today on two lots from the Hemmings Auctions page. Today, a documented 1971 Pontiac GTO Judge will see the gavel fall, and the cream of the Triumph Scramblers, a TR6C will be taken off the block.
The GTO is synonymous with the muscle car era and only 357 hardtop Judges left the factory in 1971. This car spent its early years along the eastern U.S. until it wound up in Arizona at the turn of the millennium. During its previous 11 years, it received a complete restoration, done to factory specs. The engine has a correct YE-code block topped with #191 cylinder heads and backed by the correct M40-code TH-400 three-speed automatic. The seller reports that there are very few paint nicks in the Cardinal Red exterior, which is a color change from its original gold paint. All the Judge graphics are there with the correct rear wing. The interior is said to have been fully restored including the carpet, headliner, and seat upholstery, with all gauges functioning properly. Options include A/C, tilt steering, cruise control and Honeycomb wheels. All of the important paperwork comes with this Judge as well, verifying its authenticity.
This unmodified TR6C was fully restored a decade ago with post-restoration mileage only showing 130 miles on the odometer. It features the separated engine and four-speed gearbox layout with the 649-cc parallel twin engine rebuilt during restoration. The brakes and shocks were also replaced during restoration with the forks functioning as designed on this British bike. Paintwork and chrome are bright with a reupholstered seat in correct black vinyl and white piping. Documentation is limited, but the bike was last owned by singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne and it received a full service in 2017 by a British motorcycle specialist.
