Great question. According to speedo and official info - 120 MPH. In fact,very dependable from final gear ratio. With somthing around 3.01:1 it can run around 160-170 MPH. With 4.55:1 or something - a lot lower, but with jet-like acceleration!

NOT a Judge, but a standard GTO 455, painted Orbit Orange, with the "Rally II" stripes and spoiler optioned in (these items were standard on the Judge, optional on regular GTOs). Note that there are no "The Judge" emblems behind the front wheels.

This car was owned by Universal Studios for a long time, and used in many movies and TV shows ("Baretta" immediately springs to mind...some thugs to run over Robert Blake with it in the first episode and crash through a fence...this scene is shown in the opening credits for the rest of the series' run).

Apparently they finally sold the car in 1988 to an individual (with quite a bit of bondo and some mismatched body panels...they apparently put the car through hell) and that's the last anyone has heard of it.

all 2dht models atleast had odo upto 150 mph. so i quess thats same in gto´s?
but true, with 2.something the top speed with 455 is close to 150, especially if equipped with spoilers- but gto´s did have rear end always 3.55 or quicker- so i assume they would have top speed of 120 or so?

Not all GTOs had 3.55 and up rear end. 3.23 was standard on cars with air conditioning

Both of those guys were Kentucky natives. Warren Oates and Harry Dean Stanton.

All right there in the folder in the glove box if you want to take a look at it.

Persistent rumor that this is one of the two movie cars used later in a Baretta episode and sold by studio in 1988. See the yellow GTO on the Baretta page.

Also below is the link of the car as it appeared in 1988. Keep in mind there were two GTOs purchased for this movie according to the Monte Hellman commentary track. He
claims he kept one and drove it around LA for a few months after filming. Got several tickets because of the car's color.
