1969 Dodge Monaco
1969 Monaco 4-door Hardtop

1969 Dodge Monaco

In 1969, the Monaco was completely restyled and was the top trim level of the Polara series. The new look was noted as the "fuselage" body style in which the upper and lower body fused into one giving it a more cohesive, unified look. The 383 V8 engine still remains standard in all Monaco models. Also available is the the special Monaco Brougham package which included a vinyl roof and split-bench front seat. The Monaco 500 package was also available again and included front bucket seats and a center armrest. Woodgrained vinyl trim could be seen on station wagons along the side panels and wrapping around the tailgate. A new feature for 1969 was the "Super-Lite" - a mounted road lamp - and could be ordered for an extra $50.
