1969 Dodge monaco convertable
Is this a car worth putting a lot of time and money into such as complete body off restoration. Is it a rare car. Has a 440 HP engine and is in good condition.

I'd have to say YES its a fairly rare car, Because the Monaco convertible was only sold in Canada...

Returning for '69 was the "500" option, which in the U.S. market gave the Monaco front bucket seats and a center armrest. In Canada, the Monaco 500 was a separate series that used the side trim of the Polara 500 sold in the U.S.. Canadians could also buy a Monaco convertible; U.S. Dodge full-size convertible shoppers had only the lower-end Polara and Polara 500 to choose from.

Sales of the Polara and Monaco were off by nearly 20,000 cars compared with 1968, with the Monaco line accounting for 38,566 of the 127,252 full-size cars made by Dodge for the year.

I hope this helps you.

I don't believe Dodge provide individual production numbers on models for that year. But my guess would be that they didn't make a lot of them and yes, they were only produced in Canada. Plus the 440 engine was the biggest one you could order. Might be worth something.

You could try Galen Govier to see if he has any information to offer www.gvgovier.com
