There are two ways to look at this 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. It's a numbers-matching classic luxury coupe with plenty of comfort features. It also is an upgraded car that has been given plenty of power components on the motor and a vibrant upgrade to the factory paint. And while this has two very distinct personalities, the total package comes together to make for a terrific cruiser.
The Monte Carlo was the top echelon of the Chevy lineup. Their personal luxury coupe looks fantastic in its correct Lime Green color with a premium black vinyl roof. There's even a full-length black pinstripe that coordinates with the roof and also shows off the straightness of the sheet metal. But you can instantly tell this is more than just a nice classic. The color was given a respray later in life, and it has the kind of added metallic depth that gives the paint an extra degree of pop in the sunshine. The chrome bumpers, bezels, and rocker trim add to this polished attitude. And the upgrade to American Racing Torq Thrust wheels adds to both the brightness and the flair that this come seems to master.
We love it when the roof color is a preview of what's inside. The complete and well-presented condition of the black dash pad, door panels, and carpeting is attractive. Plus, the burled walnut simulated wood makes this feel like a time machine that's also quite inviting. You'll even notice the right classic details like the working dome light and AM radio that's there for display. This is even a factory A/C car (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) But more than just vintage, the dual personality gives you quite a sporty package, too. You have the right factory-style features for a driver's car, including the front bucket seats, a center console in-between, and Chevy's iconic horseshoe shifter. These are joined by great upgrades like a sports steering wheel and an auxiliary gauge trio under the dash.
Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. Of course, all you have to do is take one look at the engine bay, and you know that this one is far from stock. This has been enhanced with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Procomp polished intake, and long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust. It's also supported by the right upgrades, like an HEI ignition and a Champion aluminum radiator. It makes for a coupe with added power that also loves to run. In fact, that's why you also have easy driving features like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, wide BF Goodrich T/As, and power brakes with discs up front.
This is a distinct coupe that likes to balance pedigree and flair. Classics like this never stay affordable for long. Call today!!!
