SHOW QUALITY RESTORATION, #'S MATCHING, SUPER CLEAN CAR UNDERNEATH, ALL ORIGINAL
Beautifully restored and number-matching 350 V8 are what makes this 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo collectable. But the fact that this award-winning vintage luxury coupe is so affordable makes it downright irresistible.
The earth-tone gold paint is absolutely striking. It has the perfect tone to convey exactly what a 1970s personal luxury coupe was all about. You can tell there was a large investment here when this car was restored. The shiny paint really emphasizes the Monte Carlo's classic good looks, particularly the subtle fender curves that are highlighted when the light hits it just right. Fit and finish are excellent, and the black vinyl roof just adds an extra touch of class – no wonder this one has been awarded at plenty of car shows! Like any great American classic, it also has a ton of brightwork to make it standout. Competing with the paint for shine meant making sure there was a mirror-like polish on areas like the wide chrome bumpers, full rocker trim, and exclusive grille with Monte Carlo badge. Plus, the iconic Rally wheels are a great finishing touch to any shiny Chevy package.
The gorgeous tan interior also replicates the factory specifications, and offers room for six in that unique '70s brand of cool. The seat covers, carpets, and headliner were all part of the restoration, so it's all quite fresh. You sit behind the factory wheel, and the burled walnut dashboard with sporty round gauge pack gives it an upscale feel. This is a true 1970s time machine right down to the correct factory AM radio. But remember this is a premium vehicle, too, so air conditioning keeps everyone comfortable even on long trips.
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, more than just the factory motor, it appears to have the original intake and Rochester two-barrel carburetor. The V8 is correctly detailed in Chevy orange with a factory air cleaner, correct decals, and overall tidiness that tells you the level of care this received during and after restoration. It starts right up, and the factory advertised 245 hp means the coupe moves with ease. This is Chevrolet's personal luxury statement, so you get great driving features such as power steering and front disc brakes.
You can look at the undercarriage photos to understand the level of detail in this restoration, and we can show you the complete book documenting it, too. Even the original owner's manual comes in the sale. People love to see Monte Carlos at car shows, which tell us their appreciation (and prices) are going up. So hurry now to get this restored award-winner while it's still at an affordable price. Call today!!!
