Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo is one of the most interesting classics you're going to find. It was stored in a barn for 30 years and was recently resurrected. While the restoration replaced necessary pieces, including on the suspension, it also loves to preserve its originality in unique ways. So dig into the details on a great all-around classic cruiser.
We're all on the hunt for a preserved car that spent more than half its life tucked away in a barn. So this coupe makes sure you can tell that story properly by retaining the factory Astro Blue paint. It has the kind of worn-in details we love on a survivor, and they actually made sure to preserve them by putting a clear coat over the whole finish. The body panels are straight, gaps are good, and the vinyl top is clean and stock. It retains all the right little details, down to the dealer tag on the rear. Plus, the full brightwork package continues to look impressive with the form-hugging bumpers and full-length rocker trim. So you have a sharp-looking survivor with a story you can proudly tell.
The interior has an attractive blue style, and just like the exterior, the true allure is its originality. The two wide rows of benches have the right classic pattern, and the cloth upholstery is the kind of touch that made the Monte Carlo a premium machine. So it's great to have it looking so complete over a half-century later. The seats join the carpeting, door panels, and headliner to have the right mix of clean but aged to tell the survivor story correctly. While this is preserved, there was also a solid restoration investment to make this classic a great cruiser for today. That's why you have well-integrated upgrades like the under-dash auxiliary gauges, and the factory air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. It has a terrific preserved style, right down to the factory decals. But the real secret here is that the motor was pulled during the restoration. So that's why it looks so vibrant on the outside, and it fires up with the eagerness of a car that wants to hit the road. As you look underneath, you can see a ton of fresh components. New body mounts, an upgraded rear suspension, and Hotchkis sway bars front & rear are part of the total package that feels confident on the road. And the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs keep this survivor a solid driver.
This is the distinct hardtop that's made to hit the streets and show off its history. It's a great Chevy that knows how to tell a great story. Call today!!!
