Remember when you could get a Continental Mark II or a first-generation Buick Riviera for not a lot of cash? Those days are long gone, and more than a few experts are predicting that the first-generation Monte Carlo will soon join them. This awesome 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo features a 350 small block V8, beautiful paint, and a host of luxury upgrades that make it the best of '70s luxury/muscle.
Like those two cars I mentioned above, the first generation of any luxury/performance coupe tends to be the one people remember, and the Monte Carlo is no exception. This one looks fantastic wearing a custom Copper paint job that absolutely glistens off the original Monte Carlo livery. It was surely repainted a few years ago, but considering the challenges of keeping a car like this clean and straight, it looks pretty darn good today. Sure, it's driver quality all the way and not without a handful of imperfections, but you can't beat that curb appeal. The sleek, unadorned bodywork is an anomaly for the glitzy '70s and nobody will argue that this isn't a great-looking car. Take one glance at the reflections in the paint on this Monte Carlo and you'll understand how amazing it looks in person. It's not perfect, but with the light tan vinyl roof, the big wheels, and no extraneous add-ons make it really stand out. We also like that it wasn't dressed up as a fake SS, so it has the standard-issue grille that's almost delicate in its look, contrasting with the big, heavy chrome bumpers.
With big car comfort, the Monte Carlo was definitely a full-sized luxury machine, although there's a bit of a sporting attitude inside. This one wears custom cloth seat covers front and rear, as well as a custom dash pad and door panels that were created to match yet still offer a stock look. The dash was painted to match the bodywork and the Dakota Digital gauges inside keep a close eye on the rumbling 350 under the hood. There's also a custom leather-wrapped billet steering wheel and a horseshoe shifter inside the center console that manages the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission underneath, lending a bit of a racy feel to the cockpit. For entertainment, there's a kickin' stereo system that uses a Pioneeer double-din AM/FM/CD/SAT/BT stereo head unit, custom speakers in the door panels, and Rockford-Fosgate amplifiers and subwoofers in the trunk to deliver big sound. And speaking of the trunk, it's been trimmed out with custom vinyl panels and LED lighting for a truly trick look.
Who needs a big block when you have the nasty 350 cubic inch V8 currently living under the hood of this Monte Carlo? With plenty of power on tap and lots of torque, this small block runs exceptionally well. The Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and polished aluminum intake manifold give it good street manners and there's a big radiator up front to keep it cool. A few other upgraded parts include a modern HEI system and alternator, the aluminum valve covers, and a set of long-tube headers that help build torque and feed into the dual exhaust system underneath. A heavy-duty TH350 3-speed automatic was standard equipment, as was the 10-bolt out back, which carries punchy gears that can easily handle highway speeds. A Flowmaster dual exhaust system has an aggressive sound to match the nasty powerplant's personality and it sits just right on those oversized chrome IROC-style 22" wheels and low-profile radials.
Make your move today, because in a few short years, you're going to look back and remember when Monte Carlos like this were a screaming bargain. Call now!
