This 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo has a time capsule look, comfy A/C interior, an a strong-running V8. So it's the kind of hardtop that delivers you the best of vintage premium, and it does it all for a value price.
This is believed to be a two-owner coupe. It's not hard to understand how a car like this could be cherished, held, and so well cared for over the decades. The Monte Carlo was the top echelon of the Chevy lineup. The personal luxury coupe looks fantastic in great 70s-style colors. But this one is especially nice as its factory-correct Mohave Gold was given a professional respray later in life. The nice gloss helps to bring out the lines in the long hood and the premium details of the car. And that excellent tan vinyl roof raises the sporty appeal of the hardtop profile. Plus, form-hugging bumpers, full rocker panels, bright trim, and the Rally wheel package make sure to show this is a very complete classic.
The saddle brown interior is a nice complementing shade that coordinates with the exterior color and the presentation is quite complete. The wide vinyl bench seats don't even have a button missing from these original-style pattern. The smooth dash, taut headliner, and plush carpeting all make this a nice place to spend some time. We especially love the driver-oriented setup with round gauges in a walnut-like inset. It all look correct and complete, right down to the Delco AM/FM radio. In fact, the only upgrade that you might notice is one that you won't see, but you will certainly feel. The air conditioning is now blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant to keep you comfortable today and make it easier to service down the road.
The car's original style continues in the engine bay. The bold orange block radiates from within all the clean black components to give this a well-kept look. And this good care is reaffirmed by the way the 350 cubic-inch V8 fires up with ease. The upgraded four-barrel carburetor lets the motor inhale deeper, and the H-pipe dual exhaust with Flowmasters gives the right tune for a premium V8 cruiser. The TH350 three-speed automatic transmission shifts like a luxury coupe should, and it feeds the strong 12-bolt rear end. And just to make sure this is a great anytime classic, you have nice driving features, like power steering, wide Cooper Cobra tires, and power brakes w/discs up front.
Not only does this have low ownership, but you also get some great paperwork, too. The sale comes with the original window sticker, dealer invoice, owner's manual and title documentation. It all proves this is a well-cared for classic coupe that's also a great cruiser. Call today!!!
