This 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo runs an interesting line of both a numbers-matching V8 classic and restomod-like upgrades. So when this loaded and beautiful grand touring coupe is also offered for an obtainable price, you know you need to take a closer look at this deal.
This coupe's exterior is an upgrade from the original, so you want a paint that let's everyone know that. Cortez Silver was offered on the first-gen Monte Carlo, but this application has a deep shine that comes from a more modern and professional paint application. It gives this car a radiant personality that's amplified by the black dual racing stripes. Plus, the black vinyl roof complements the stripes while also showcasing the pillarless hardtop roof. It's a formal look that's continued the well-integrated chrome bumpers, full rocker trim, and exclusive Monte Carlo badging. This idea of aggression and premium shine perfectly comes together on the classic American Racing polished 17-inch wheels.
The dual attitude of performance and luxury continues inside. For example, the black interior is what you want on a muscle car. But it's also a great coordinating color with the roof, and it has a premium look – right down to the button-top presentation. This was restored with care, and so the door panels, carpeting, and even the walnut-like trim looks quite good. This is a nice place to spend with family and friends, because it's not only roomy, but also there are great features like air conditioning and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth. But the driver will always be king. You have a grippy NK4 sports steering wheel on a tilt column. Beyond that is the full round gauge panel with large speedo and tach, and even SunPro auxiliary readouts nicely integrated into the dash.
Under the hood is the original 402 cubic-inch V8. It has been restored to have an honest appearance with a tidy look, bold block, black air topper, and factory four-barrel carb. But beneath the surface are upgrades like a Comp Cams camshaft, roller rockers, and upgraded H-pipe dual exhaust. It adds an extra hit of power to this big block machine. But as a true cruising Monte Carlo, this one doesn't go for all-out muscle car. Instead, it's been given all the right investments to be a strong runner with great cruising capabilities. This is enhanced further by power steering, sway bars front & rear, and the original three-speed automatic transmission feeding a highway-friendly rear end. The front disc brakes are even upgraded to drilled & slotted rotors for great modern grip.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the cool coupe that's a terrific mix of originality and the best upgrades. It's one irresistible total package that you need to get your hands on. Call now!
