Orbit Orange??

Was this color only offered on the 1970 models?

I am looking at a 71 GTO but it's in OO.

Yes O.O. was only offered on the 1970 Judge at mid year. This color was introduced to spur sales that were lagging on the '70 Judges. It did spur sales for the remainder of that model year and despite suggestions to end the Judge run in 1970, Pontiac brought it back in '71 but it tanked.

The term "Orbit" was derived from NASA sending astronauts into Orbit.

Interesting - I wasn't aware the colour wasn't introduced until mid-year.
