The Chevrolet Monte Carlo was Chevrolet’s answer to the personal luxury market that was trendy in the early 1970′s. It was molded after the popular Pontiac Grand Prix, but adopted styling cues from the Cadillac Eldorado. The first generation Monte Carlo used the GM A-body platform, but was stresched two inches.
This Monte Carlo is part of a private collection and was purchased from the original owner. The car was built at the GM plant in Van Nuys, CA and sold to the original owner through Bellwood Chevrolet in Bell, CA.
The Monte Carlo has 22,400 documented miles on its factory 350 cubic inch engine with Rochester four barrel carburetor, functional R-12 Air Conditioning system, power steering and power brakes. Even the California smog system is still in place. The paint, Covet Tan, is all original. The interior is also original; including the door panels, rug, headliner and seats. The original radio has been replaced with one that fits in the dash.
With the exception of the distributor, battery and alternator, the engine is all original. The Monte Carlo has matching numbers. It still has the original muffler, front and rear shocks and has been untouched.
