The list of fun, affordable V8 muscle cars is getting shorter all the time, and the late Monte Carlo SS is one of your last chances to get some rear-wheel-drive muscle without spending your kids' college fund. This 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS coupe is an ideal example, nicely preserved and loaded with options, making it a smart investment as well as a lot of fun to drive.

These big GM coupes never look so good as when they're finished in bright white, and the long nose/short deck styling definitely works. Perhaps it's the blend of the formal roof line with the SS ground effects and graphics that make it so appealing, but there are few more recognizable cars from the '80s than this. That white paint looks extremely good with few imperfections, and the stripes have been removed to give it a very clean, aggressive look, making us wonder why everyone doesn't do it that way. There's also a cowl-induction hood, but that's a popular modification that looks great. It's actually quite rare to find one of these that has been so carefully maintained; usually they were beaten to within an inch of their lives and driven into the ground. The big doors fit well, the urethane front bumper doesn't show the usual scuffs from tall parking curbs, and there's a shine that suggests a lot of weekends spent looking after the paint. It's not perfect, but it's awfully nice.

A burgundy bucket seat interior was the only choice in your new SS, but GM went the extra mile to make it look suitably sporty. The seats themselves show very, very minor wear, mostly on the driver's side bolster where it obviously gets the most action, but the upholstery itself is nicely preserved and not faded by the sun. Round analog gauges are bright and crisp, including an anemic 85 MPH speedometer and a tach that parks itself at 900 RPM when you turn the engine off. The SS included a long list of standard features and this one packs almost every available option including A/C, power windows and locks, cruise control, and a high-end AM/FM/cassette stereo. With T-tops, it's both sporty and fun in the summer with the all-weather comfort of a coupe. The trunk looks completely unused, including the original space-saver spare that doesn't look like it's ever seen pavement.

The only engine was GM's 305 cubic inch V8 with throttle body fuel injection. Torquey and with a great V8 exhaust note, it made the SS more than a poser, but it wasn't intended to be an all-out street racer, either. With the myriad of upgrades available with little more than a phone call, it's rare to find one that's 100% stock like this. From the air cleaner to the exhaust manifolds, it is just the way the factory intended. The neat thing is that all the little stuff like the A/C fittings and even the master cylinder are all bright and shiny, so you know this car's had an easy life. A 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission was the only choice, and 3.42 gears out back make for easy cruising and lively acceleration. A custom exhaust system was recently installed so it sounds like the V8 muscle car that it truly is, but there's still a catalytic converter, so it's legal just about everywhere. 15-inch American Racing alloys are a nice-looking alternative to the original hoops and wear 245/60/15 BFGoodrich radials.
