DESCRIPTION

1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS Aero Coupe



Once upon a time, the "stock cars" that raced on the NASCAR circuit actually bore a relationship to the vehicles you could buy at a new car dealership. "Win on Sunday, sell on Monday" wasn't just an advertising tagline. It was a showroom reality. Chevy bumped up production for the 1987 model year, running off more than 3,500 of the SS Aero-coupes as opposed to a mere 200 in 1986 to meet the NASCAR rules. (Thx to Larry [email protected] CC.comJournal for this intro info!)



For consignment, an unbelievably low mileage car with an astounding 23.5 original miles. A consigner/car dealer bought this car and stuffed it away in who knows where until it shows up at our doorstep as a babe in blanket 32-year-old new factory born car. It is very clean, has a few faults from sitting, but with only 23 miles I'm sure the break in oil, and gas will need to be changed!



Exterior

Paint code 11U (WHITE) adorns the exterior of this car, and it has few faults, in its 23 mile journey, to the exterior. Absolutely no rust, no faults excepting the ones applied at the factory (a slight factory spray orange peel, and some fading on the nose due to the neoprene degradation the white is slightly off from the body and it's to the yellow side, BUT you have to really study it.). The optional "T" top with removable see through smoked glass panels is on top, provides passengers with an open-air motoring experience without the fussing over a total convertible. This two-door model features a fastback-style rear window, rear deck lid spoiler, and a blacked-out grille. A trio of racing stripes races around the below belt line of this car and they are in an orange to red fade as they get larger and wider towards the rockers. Noted on all 4 corners are the quasi honeycombed mag style 5 bolt wheels with the original rubber wrapping them. Note that this rubber will need to be replaced as time sitting on the same spot has rendered them with major flat spots. The best feature of the Aero version is the rear glass with the curved center glass and the triangular glass seen after the B pillar. All badging for this car is aerodynamic stickers which run flush with the bodywork.



Interior

Maroon cloth buckets with smooth maroon vinyl bolsters are in front, and these flank a maroon center console with a storage box, and housing the automatic T shifter. We make note of all the chromed toggles and bezels, have a peppering of corrosion in green patina form. This may be due to moisture inside the cabin, however there is no smell of mustiness or any mold seen. In the rear is a pattern matching bench and it is fade free and pristine, never used. Carpet is showroom and is thick pile and beautiful. The 80's square and rectangle design applies to the original dash, very clean and all functioning knobs and levers. Of course, we need to mention the trunk, which is showroom, nary even a mark in the carpet. Also, of note there is no dry rot on any rubber surfaces.



Drivetrain

As we look under the hood, we can see an original numbers matching engine, very clean and very little dust even to note. This V8 is in 305ci HO configuration, is topped by a 4-barrel carburetor, and backed by a 4-speed 200R4 automatic tranny. A 10-bolt 3.73 geared axle is in back.



Undercarriage

Some minimal surface rust on the usual suspects (rear, driveshaft, some suspension parts) but otherwise pristine, and rust free all around. Independent coil springs upfront and 4 link with coil springs on the rear provide the ride. Power disc brakes on front and power drum brakes for the rear, and they WILL pass inspection!



Drive-Ability

We would not dare drive a car with this low of mileage, although as reported it starts right up and on the push into the mall, we noticed major flat spots on the original tires.



Amazingly preserved this 23 mile Aero time capsule from 1987 is something to behold. It is just unheard of. A few faults with the neoprene color fade in front, and the green corrosion on the interior chrome, but otherwise just like the day it was driven from the showroom.
