Of course I see a lot of cars. When I first saw this Judge in red I immediately liked it and thought it is rare. I was told 17 were made but that’s not documented. It’s a rare, desirable car that has been through a rotisserie restoration. It’s also priced real fair considering what they have been bringing at auction. Great investment you can enjoy. It’s a win win win win!
