I'd like to see pictures of copper and white. That could be good or bad.

my slip: I meant to say palomino copper. PHS reads Two Tone- STD

COLOR B C
I'm assuming two tone; means two tone paint ?

The PHS says 2 tone paint.
(not cordova top)

Post toastie is this about your car's color now?

That's certainly a unique color combo!

I've seen two two-tone '70s, I think. There's the red with white and the white with red.

Palomino is a weak color, and would have had the olive decals.
Terrible Judge combo
Not sure if a white roof could help it or hurt it in either direction.
Probably is 1 of 1 in that 2tone

Really odd that the car for sale has front wheel opening molds but none on the rear.
Baja suspension is a really sore thumb

The Palomino/Polar Judge also came with (dark) Brown Interior (253)
Seldom seen interior color on 70 Judges
Add that to the exterior combo ... and its highly likely to really be 1 of 1

Here is a partial visual aid that can sort of be used to build a mental image.
Palomino, Saddle (255) Interior, Sandalwood Top with Olive Eyebrows

Baron,

Here is my real GTO that was cloned into a Judge with brown interior. Exterior color is Palomino Copper with some gold flake in it. Palomino Copper and Brown interior are the original color combo to the car.

I like the Brown/Chocolate interior on a 70
it goes well with the Palomino too

The lime stripes would be my least favorite on it. (although correct)
Take no offense, you have a great Car.

The convertible i posted was a D98 stripe car and should have red/black/white 69 swords on it.
It would look a bit better too. imo

No offense taken. It took me awhile to get use to the color. I almost had the car repainted in orbit orange, That would of meant the interior color would have to change. Most likely black. I didn't want to go through the expense of changing the color of the interior.

Think i'd like to see an OrbitOrange car with the Brown Interior.
Possibly a better choice than Sandalwood or Saddle

GTO John used to own a Granada Gold/Sierra Yellow painted top 70 Judge. I also know of an Atoll Blue/Polar White top 70 Judge.

I was trying to picture the car mentioned in the first post, and since the CL ad is still up, I grabbed a few of the images to post here for the inevitable time when the ad goes down.

If that was a Baltimore Built Judge - with Black Interior - i have a copy of the Buildsheet for it , or one just like it.
Ram3 - 4spd - 3.90
That would be a pretty sharp exterior combo.... for a 2-Tone .



Younger days (early 20's , in the mid 80's)
one of my good friends had a 70 Cardinal Red/Polar White Roof/Red Interior Ram3 3spd/M13 Judge
Well worn, a bit tired, and faded. Totally intact drivetrain-induction, factory paint & decals.

An older acquaintance i met later on, claimed he bought an identical car to that New.
His wife supported the claim - it was purchased in her name (lower insurance - they said) .
About a 50 mile difference in locations, so it may have been the same car he bought new.
