The third-generation Chevrolet Monte Carlo had one of the shortest runs in the model's history, and today these angular coupes are quite desirable. So to find a well-presented/preserved V8 cruiser for a value price is a true treat.
What keeps this 1980 Monte Carlo Landau in demand is the design. It was an instant classic in the way it perfectly mixed a sporty and luxurious lifestyle. The sweeping curve in the front fender starts at the headlight and runs all the way through the door line, and the rear fender is pure sheet metal magic, too. So it's great to have such a complete example like this. You can appreciate the details like the good gaps and complete shining trim that really help this car's premium story. The black paint was updated later in life to make sure you have a good gloss when this one is out cruising, but as a true cruiser, the overall finish wants to make sure you are never too nervous to take it out for a drive. After all, those upgraded American Racing 17-inch Torq Thrust wheels not only add extra shine, but also they allow you to fit better driving tires.
The burgundy interior looks nice against the black exterior, and it has a cool look with the striped insert in the seatbacks that match the doors. This is a true classic luxury, and so you have features like power windows and plenty of walnut-like trim. And there are also provisions for more features like power locks and air conditioning (they will need servicing to ideally function again.) It's all part of a very stock style, and while it's unconfirmed, the consignor believed the odometer reflects the full actual mileage. There's room for up to six people, but as Chevy's personal luxury machine, the driver will always be the king. That's why you have a power driver's seat, a tilt steering column, and a gauge panel that seems to wrap around you.
Under the hood is an interesting small block. The 267 cubic-inch V8 was not in production for very long, and so having the correct-style unit in this Monte Carlo just adds to this classic's story. It runs well, which helps keep this a classic you'll love driving. That's why it also has great anytime features, like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs.
Complete with title documentation, this is the beautiful and affordable classic that's ready for the next enthusiast to cherish it. Will it be you? Call today!!!
