A really rare Judge: Ram Air IV, bench seat, automatic shift on the column.

The advert boasts, "No expense was spared during this restoration."

Then why are the hood scoop inlets painted black and why doesn't the rear spoiler fit flush on the rear quarter panel??!!!

Because no expense was spared for the mistakes the owner paid for.

The statement, "This is 1 of 58 and the only one built with this configuration in the judge registry known to exist" is meaningless. Stating it's the only one in an online registry is like stating you have the only 2008 Toyota Camry within 3 subdivisions. You have no idea because not everyone is in the registry. The Judge registry has just a fraction of the Judges built, and there was more than one RAIV column shift produced.

When you see the phrase "no expense spared" that usually means a bunch of non-Pontiac specific shops had their hand in restoring the car, and yes, there will be many restoration mistakes. The black hood scoops are of course wrong, but they probably did not know that. The trunk lid may be open which may explain why the wing is too high, but the photos are so poor, and with no photos of the rear, it's hard to say.

I am guessing that the rear spoiler on the blue 1969 judge was mounted too high up on the trunk lid. That's why it appears off. And the seller knows it so he didn't post any photos taken of the rear of the car.
