1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
"Owning a Monte Carlo is kind of like having your cake and driving it too," Chevrolet insisted, blending the best virtues of the luxury car and the sporty car. Base-priced at $3,362, the Monte Carlo could be fitted with a long list of luxury conveniences to suit its owner.
For consignment a survivor, all original car with original panels with one respray, no patches or never any rust. Loaded with options and potential for many a fun drive down memory lane.
Rosewood Brown respray covers the all original exterior body panels which are straight and true. All original badging is seen as well as the new for 1972 front wide mesh grille. Original bumpers appear in very nice condition, as well as original brite work. Chrome drip moldings (roof and body) are in good condition straight and true. A stainless rocker molding is present and looks also in good condition. Rally wheels are on all 4 corners. Throw in the tinted glass option, and you have yourself a really nice Monte Carlo., which was used as a shower, not a driver, adding to its excellent overall condition.
A swing of the large door reveals a vertical stitched textured and buttoned saddle vinyl over some lower quarter gold carpeting. Stretching between these two panels are wonderfully preserved firm but supple excellent condition Saddle vinyl buckets seats, which flank a center console that houses the locking glovebox/armrest,” jet throttle like” automatic 2 posted with center horizontal bar shifter, then some burl which covers a hidden ashtray and lighter. The console narrows as it goes under the dash then dies into the carpet as it reaches the firewall. Speaking of the dash, beautiful burl and tan vinyl house a gauge package, and all correct gauges to keep you up to date during your cruise. Fronting the dash is an NK4 sport steering wheel, that utilizes power steering to assist with the cornering. Power windows, air conditioning, cruise control, and an AM/FM stereo with rear speakers have also been installed.
Original 350ci V8 with attached 4-barrel carburetor sits in a clean and unrestored engine bay. A Turbo 350 automatic transmission is bolted to the back.
The never any rust mantra hold here as well as no surface rust on any panels, gas tank, brackets etc is seen anywhere. Power front disc brakes are seen, and a posi traction rear axle setup is installed.
Excepting the respray, it's all original and in perfect working order. As noted, this car was a shower not a driver, and spent its life being pampered in a temperature controlled, battery always charged really nice garage. This consigner has been a loyal Classic Auto Mall fan, and with anything from his collection mostly 1970's iron, it is well cared for, and pristine.
