Description

This 1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo can probably be credited with re-inventing a whole class of automobile: the personal luxury coupe. Sure there were upmarket 2-doors before but not since the Continental Mark II of the mid-50s was there a purely American luxury coupe that had no 4-door equivalent and that makes the early Monte something special. Like many muscular Chevys it has become fashionable to create clones and tribute cars to vehicles that are otherwise impossible to own. However this is one very honest Monte nicely refinished with factory colors and specifications that make it a bit more appealing to the purist. Code 45 is shown on the cowl tag so it was refinished using correct Mist Green a popular color in 1970 for obvious reasons. The Monte Carlo's styling was a home-run in every possible way with excellent long nose/short deck proportions and those wonderful creases that defined the sweeping fender lines like the great cars of the 1930s and '40s. Paint and bodywork are quite nice with the finish duplicated in modern paints so it's durable as well as shiny. If you look hard you can probably find a few blemishes here and there but the overall look is quality. The lack of a vinyl roof makes this Monte look pretty sleek and as you'll note on the cowl tag that's how it was ordered new. There's not a lot of chrome but items like the bumpers grille and rocker panel moldings are in very good condition adding a splash of contrast to the flashy Monte Carlo shape. Even in base form the handsome interior looked upscale and well-finished and that's certainly the case with this car today. Dark green upholstery matches the bodywork quite well and shows off a great look that combines new and original components almost seamlessly. Nice pleated seats front and rear offer seating for six in a pinch and the carpets are in such great shape that they simply must be new. The same goes for the door panels which look quite authentic but you're probably not going to find 45-year-old vinyl that nice out in the wild. The instrument panel looks like it could be from a Chevelle SS which is why so many Monte Carlos are donors for SS clones but the burled walnut appliques are well-suited to the Monte's upscale mission. It's also nice to see that it hasn't been needlessly upgraded over the years and even still carries its factory-issued AM radio. The trunk is in good shape too and features a full-sized spare for backup. The base engine in the Monte Carlo was a 350 cubic inch V8 which should tell you about Chevy's intentions. It's correctly detailed in Chevy Orange with a factory air cleaner and decals someone obviously went through the engine bay and cleaned everything up. It starts easily and makes the big coupe feel agile out on the road not ponderous. It's backed by a PowerGlide 2-speed automatic transmission which was going to be phased out but proves the restorer's dedication to factory stock. It's not perfect and shiny underneath but this is a good honest car that still uses a single exhaust and rides on a luxury-oriented suspension. Classic Rally wheels make any car look good but they're especially effective on the Monte Carlo and carry 225/70/15 Uniroyal radials. The day of the Monte Carlo is coming and if you want a good one to enjoy while you wait it's hard to go wrong with one as correct as this. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom. For more information please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
