Here's a very affordable time capsule at its best. This 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo has averaged less than 850 miles annually, and it has truly been a cherished coupe with its factory-correct colors, plush interior, V8 power, and plenty of documentation.
The Monte Carlo was the top echelon of the Chevy lineup. Their personal luxury coupe looks fantastic in its correct Spring Green color with premium black vinyl roof. Not only does this hue continue to have a modern appeal, but this is furthered by a professional respray later in life that helps retain a nice shine. You want a coupe like this looking bright. After all, that's the best way to highlight the crisp lines of the sheet metal. There's plenty of sporty appeal, too with the hardtop profile, and the kick-up in the rear fender that rises to meet it. Like any great American classic, it also has a ton of bright work to make it standout. The the wide chrome bumpers, full rocker trim, and exclusive grille with Monte Carlo badge all continued to gleam nicely. Plus, the iconic Rally wheels are a great finishing touch to any shiny Chevy package.
We love it when the roof color is a preview of what's inside. The dual cloth benches don't have even a button missing from these original pattern, and so they seat six in complete luxury. The complete and well-presented condition of the black dash pad, door panels, and carpeting makes this feel like a time machine. Even the AM 8-track radio is still on display. Within this darkness, the burled walnut simulated wood on the steering wheel and dash are terrific standouts. This is a driver-oriented setup where you have a clear view to the round gauge package that reinforces both the premium and sporty feeling.
Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8, which is another testament of how nicely this car represents its era. In fact, we love how the bold orange block and valve covers radiate from within the dark engine bay. The factory air topper even still has the correct decal for a survivor-style presentation. This trusty small-block has the kind of power and plentiful torque to move this big coupe with ease. The custom Flowmaster dual exhaust makes a nice low rumble, hinting at the power plant under the hood. Still, this is Chevrolet's personal luxury statement, so you get great driving features such as the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, new rear shocks, and power brakes with discs up front.
Complete with the original window sticker, Protect-O-Plate warranty card, and owner's manual, this is a distinct classic with a terrific pedigree. Classic like this never stay affordable for long. Call now!
