This 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo is at the intersection of vintage luxury and vintage muscle. After all, it's Chevy's personal cruiser, and it's an all-black hardtop with numbers-matching big block power.
The Monte Carlo was out to be a premium bow tie from day one, and so the first generation really established that reputation. The long hood, formal roofline, and well-done ornamentation are what made this great when new. Today that style continues with a sharp-looking coupe complete in black and chrome. Nice body lines, good glass, and full trim keep this looking like a well-respected classic. Plus, there's always something special about an American car built before the bumper laws. It means these chrome kings really get to hug the car's form, and the rear especially shows off what the designers can do when they are allowed to dream big. And while there's an elegance to this coupe, the Rally wheels remind us there's some power in there, too.
The black interior gives this one the full midnight presentation inside and out. It's a well-respected look, and that's why you won't find a button missing from the seatbacks or matching door panels. This one was done with comfortable cruising in mind, and so you have premium walnut-like trim, an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for factory air conditioning (will need servicing to blow cold again.) So it's the kind of car where it's easy to take along family and friends. But you don't need any of them to enjoy this Monte Carlo. Front bucket seats, a center console in-between, Chevy's horseshoe shifter, and large round gauge package all make this a driver's machine.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 402 cubic-inch V8. It's easy to tell people it's the original motor, because it has the classic presentation where the bold Chevy orange is radiating from within the dark engine bay. It fires up readily as the big block inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor. The full dual exhaust system gives it a proper V8 rumble that also doesn't betray the car's premium nature. The TH400 three-speed transmission is a similar situation where it's stout enough for big block duty while also giving you easy automatic shifting comfort. Add in power steering, power front disc brakes, and wide Cooper Cobra tires, and this is a great classic for the road.
The premium feel of power, that's what this classic Monte Carlo has to offer. It's an irresistible sensation, so don't miss this all-black coupe. Call today!!!
