p>1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo RestoMod
Description As they used to say on the venerable British comedy show, Monty Python, "Now for something completely different." What you are looking at here is a one of kind build on what may well have been a one of a kind car from the factory. This restomod Monte has all the stuff that makes it an over the top driver for today's tastes while still paying some serious homage to it's original being. By this I mean, it has a transplanted LS3 fuel injected V8 in it and it was originally built with a Big Block LS3 402 from the factory that power is channeled through a newer Tremec 5 speed manual transmission that replaces the original 4 speed tranny that was in this one new. Not only that this one was Special Order Paint in, you guessed it, Hugger Orange. The original rear end was a posi with 3:31 gears, those have have been switched out with a 3.42 12 bolt posi. There is even a custom made and desirable Cowl Hood that functions with acceleration, Power Assist Steering and drilled and ventilated four wheel Power Disc Brakes, Astro Flo Thru Ventilation with Adjustable Dash Vents. There is a custom padded console with storage compartment along with a correct bucket seats that have been recovered, padded, and had new springs installed. Your pulse will quicken when the Performance Tuned Dynaomax Dual Exhaust with electric cutouts hits its stride. It rolls about on17 inch Torque Thrust and 5 spoke Torque Thrust Wheels with and an excellent set of matched BFG raised white letter radials. The front and rear suspensions are Hotchkis with huge sway bars and this handles like more like a Vette than any Monte you have ever dreamed of. I know, there are some naysayers that will proclaim this car was never built and all we brag about here is BS....but low and behold we have an original build sheet and about 100 pages of receipts for the build (with specs) to back it up. Here is one that will absolutely set the car cruise buzzin' with it's levels of quality build, equipment, and heritage. Oh yea, this one was sold new at Kenny Ross Chevrolet in Pittsburgh, PA which was one of the east coast's premier Chevy Muscle Car outlets of the day.
